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).

2 out of 5 eggsDied in less than a year

Pros: Runs cool. Good performance for the price.

Cons: Died in less than a year. RMA'd to AMD and received a replacement.

Other Thoughts: After about nine months, system would not boot - fans on, no beep, no boot. CPU malfunction is difficult to diagnose. Other system components are more likely to fail, so I tested these first.

Power supply - swap did nothing
RAM - only had one compatible stick, so I had to order one to swap. Swap did nothing.
Motherboard - Examined it, saw no damage, so I ordered one to swap. Swap did nothing.
RMA'd CPU to AMD - Free shipping both ways. They tested and sent replacement within a few days. Entire RMA took about ten days.

I now have enough extra components to build another system ... which is not necessarily good. Big waste of time.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid

Pros: I had a bunch of AMD boards laying around from cryptocurrency miners and decided to make a few gaming rigs systems from them (overhauled my 3yr old machine, built an HTPC/XBMC/Steambox for the living room and build my 16yr old his first rig).

This chip overclocked easily to 4.0Ghz on the stock cooling but then I purchased the Cooler Master 240M liquid cooler and by only bumping the voltage to 1.3v on the core was able to hit 4.5Ghz easily. The chip could probably go higher but I don't really need it to.

On paper Intel may be better, but for the money saved and easy overclocking I don't see a benefit to spending more for Intel. I am running all of the latest games on ultra settings without FPS issues.

Cons: None.

4 out of 5 eggsNice CPU, horrible Fan

Pros: Easy to install, works fine at stock clock, super fast overclocked.

Cons: Fan in the box has awful performance, temperature was high and fan was noisy, I buy another fan from coolmaster, now after a 6 hours video encode CPU is below 40C°.

Other Thoughts: For easy installation just make sure you have an updated Bios or UEFI, if not installation will be a torture and you probably will write a review that your CPU don't post.
I use the PC for encoding video and streaming, PC only rest a couple of hours a week, has been working since march 2013, no issues or hangings from the CPU, if it has lost speed I haven't noticed.

5 out of 5 eggsJust What I Needed

Pros: Very Very fast Possesing
cheep but dependable
$20 more then a quad
so glad i went with AMD

Cons: nothing

Other Thoughts: So i have been an intel guy for every but when i was looking for this parts i was torn because if i was to get the same type of possessor from intel i would have paid at least $200. This does everything that the intel can do with out paying so much more money.

Keep Egging on.............

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Good CPU, very nice for gaming as long as you don't go crazy or anything

Cons: Needs better stock heatsink and fan, the included one just wasn't cooling as well as i'd like, but thats what you get from all aluminium heatsink. Had to install Heatsink and fan from a friends FX-8350 to get better cooling.

Other Thoughts: Like I said great processor if you get better cooling, amd should rethink packaged cooling options. other than that I'm loving this thing its great for anything I throw at it.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid budget gaming CPU

Pros: Runs everything I throw at it with a GTX 770 2GB, 8GB ram and Win 8.1 build, nothing OC'd. Throw in a Hyper 212 evo and you're set for gaming! I run BF4 on high settings in 1080p with constant 60+ fps. Ultra occasionally dips to mid 40's. ALL on 64 player servers.

This CPU is also great for basic video rendering.

Cons: Turbo doesn't really work on my system, but it could be just my system alone. The FX 6300 uses Hyper-threading, there are only 3 actual cores. But as long as you unpark your cores, you'll be fine.

Other Thoughts: For the price of $120, you cannot go wrong with this bad boy. My motherboard limits FX CPUs to 95W only, but the FX 6300 saved me from upgrading to another MOBO just to use an FX cpu.

I've had this since December of last year and the FX 6300 is still running strong. I cannot recommend this CPU enough for those who want to finally experience mid-high end gaming without breaking the bank.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Buy

Pros: This is a great AMD. I don't know why any one would buy the 4300 or the more $ 6300. Operates 3.5 to 4.2 ghz. I own 2 8350 and 1 8320. This a grat value at $120

Cons: CPU cooling fan is mediocre, Plan fin alumin block with sm fan. I had 3 8300 fans with cooer plate and heat pipes and used that instead..

Other Thoughts: I if going to OC definitely get a better cooling system such as Cool-master 212

5 out of 5 eggsGreat value

Pros: Price/performance ratio is one of the best out there. Often on discount. I've bought half a dozen of these processors for various builds. Always perform well.

Cons: Single core performance could be better...
