New microarchitecture, new level of performance

Piledriver microarchitecture, a tuned-up Bulldozer, has finally reached the flagship AMD FX processors (the new FX series processors are codenamed as Vishera) for improved performance and better energy-efficiency. Up to six “Piledriver” cores ensure breathtaking 3D modeling and HD video edition as well as maximum multitasking. The AMD Turbo Core technology pushes your core frequencies to the most when you need it most. To top it off, like all other AMD’s Black Edition processors, the new AMD FX 6-core Vishera processor black edition is unlocked for fabulous overclocking* capability.  Superior performance is not the only trick AMD has up their sleeve. Vishera processors are at a reasonable price point. (*AMD’s product warranty does not cover damage caused by overclocking even when overclocking is enabled via AMD Overdrive software.)



 

  • newegg New Piledriver microarchitecture Piledriver microarchitecture is the second generation of AMD Bulldozer microarchitecture. The internal core structure has been modified for higher frequencies even without any changes in the manufacturing process. Piledriver has a more precise branch predictor and a larger instruction window with ISA extensions FMA3 and F16C. The execution units acquired an enhanced scheduler and learned to process individual instructions faster, such as integer and floating-point division. And Piledriver microarchitecture delivers higher power efficiency compared with Bulldozer microarchitecture.
  • newegg Unlocked AMD FX processor with 6 Piledriver cores The native 6-core desktop processor ensures breathtaking 3D modeling and HD video edition as well as maximum multitasking with the new Piledriver microarchitecture. 32 nanometer die shrink was designed to reduce leakage for improved efficiency, increased clock rate headroom and better thermals. The AMD unlocked technology offers more headroom for your overclocking (AMD’s product warranty does not cover damage caused by overclocking even when overclocking is enabled via AMD Overdrive software.).
  • newegg AMD Turbo technology The AMD FX Processors come equipped with AMD Turbo CORE Technology, a performance boosting technology that helps increase performance on the applications that need it the most.
  • newegg Amazing instruction capabilities Like Bulldozer, Piledriver has some amazing instruction capabilities. Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) increase parallelism tailored for scientific and 3D applications that use heavy floating point calculations. Floating Point Vector Multiply-Accumulate improves throughput and performance on many vector functions (integer and floating point). Advanced Encryption Standard noticeably increases performance on the latest encryption applications like TrueCrypt and benchmarks like PCMark.
  • newegg AMD Hypertransport technology HyperTransport Technology (HT or HTT) is a high-speed, low latency, point-to-point link which helps reduce the number of buses in a system thus reducing system bottlenecks and enabling today's faster microprocessors to use system memory more efficiently in high-end multiprocessor systems.
  • newegg Integrated DRAM Controller with AMD Memory Optimizer Technology AMD FX Vishera Processor features a high-bandwidth, low-latency integrated memory controller that supports faster and low voltage memories and provides new Pre-Fetcher improvements and direct communications to each core in Dual-Core module (APIC registers in each core).

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect!

Pros: Haz corez

Cons: is not quantum.

Other Thoughts: It rarely has enough to do unless you have an ssd, at which point as stressed as it ever gets is at boot, games rarely work it to 100%

5 out of 5 eggsIts a 6-core

Pros: 6-cores

Cons: Stock fan runs warm, but does the job. And not so bad if you don't mind the noise of a jet engine inside your case and frequent cleanings. I definitely recommend an aftermarket one, not for better cooling as the temps were still acceptable, but the stock heat sink appears to be a dust magnet and will clog easily if not maintained.

Other Thoughts: Keep government and religious philosophies separate.

4 out of 5 eggsVery Nice

Pros: As far as the major Pro's of the 6300 go, it is very quick without needing Turbo, It overclocks nicely. The amount of added in CPU Instructions make it blaze through program compiling, and running highly optimized code.

Cons: I can't think of a single one.

Other Thoughts: I upgraded from an A6-3650 and this thing runs circles around it.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing CPU

Pros: Can be overclocked drastically.
Low wattage
Very affordable

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This processor can sure take a beating. I bought a third party cpu cooler and have overclocked this is 4.4-4.5ghz no problem. Buy this processor over the 6350 since essentially that processor costs slightly more and is just a manufacturer overclocked 6300. You can not beat it for the price. I stayed away from the 8000 series since a lot of motherboards have problems with the 8350 and such due to wattage and heating issues

5 out of 5 eggsIt's Good.

Pros: Low cost. Runs a little cooler than my Athlon X4 635. Nice.
(Reused same cooler and same type of TIM.)
A speed upgrade from my 635.
6300 is far more CPU than most people need, for day to day use. IMO

Cons: Had to buy new AM3+ mainboard, won't work on a older AM3.

Other Thoughts: Running 6300 on XP Pro. Upgraded CPU because of a MB failure. Older Athlon X4 635 still works perfect.
AMD CPU's have been good to me.

5 out of 5 eggsBEAST OF A PROCESSOR

Pros: it was this processor or an i3... and I'm glad i went with this one on crisis 3 and bf4 on 64 player servers this processor handles it smooth as butter! no sweat! very stable never seen it go past 65% Cpu usage

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: I recommend this to anyone who wants a beast of a processor on a budget.

I upgraded from an athlon x4 750k and first off spend 40 bucks more and buy the fx the athlon couldn't handle crisis bf or any cpu intensive game at all it was awful just get the fx

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great CPU. Runs very smooth, and cool never runs over 50c while gaming. with aftermarket air cooling. Have not tried to push it as i have no need to go higher than the 4.1ghz it provides in turbo.

Cons: non

5 out of 5 eggsGreat performance per dollar

Pros: I got this when it was $110 you can't beat the price for what you get with this processor, great for making a cheap computer that can still play any game out there.

Cons: none
