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).

4 out of 5 eggsBest Bang for Buck

Pros: Really good cpu and easy to OC

Cons: flimsy cpu cooler. I would not even put that cooler on my old pentium
tends to run a little hot

Other Thoughts: get an aftermarkert closed loop cooling or make your own liquid cooling if you plan to OC or just to extend the life of this cpu.
Other than that, its a great buy

5 out of 5 eggsGood Chip

Pros: Quick delivery as always. Successfully OC 4.4 with H100i.

Cons: None to think of other than I have never installed a water cooler and that is restricting my OC until I reapply thermal paste.

5 out of 5 eggsfast cheap no brainer

Pros: processor is good with stock speed no overclocking due to poor stock cooling. by far im glad i made this purchase
though im only an average user with only browsing the web and watching movies, i played watchdog and it doesnt slow down at all cant wait to oc it once i upgrade the cooling

Cons: AMD should give us an option with different cooling , my cousin bought the 8 core version and i notice it had the same heat sink and fan as mines, with 4 100mm case fan blowing from every direction inside the case the idle temp was 80f on normal room temp, in the hot summer days it gets pretty hot
just ordered a better cooling so i can oc it and prevent it from overheating

Other Thoughts: AMD fx6300 six core
16gb of memory ram
ASUS HD7770-2GD5
Antec Three Hundred Illusion Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Antec Multimedia Station Premier

5 out of 5 eggsupgraded cuz of seconflife

Pros: this cpu is fast and low price better than intel yes i said it

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: i got this cuz i was adding ram to use with secondlife with my old AMD Phenom II x4 secondlife was using up almost 60+ cpu with 4 gigs of old ddr2 800 ram now it uses about 10% cpu with 16 gigs of ram just for overkill i may add another 16gigs or ram for a total of 32 gigs !

5 out of 5 eggsLove It

Pros: This is a great little processor. It performs exactly as advertised

Cons: The stock cooler is a waste of space in the box. No big deal because I never use stock coolers. There is a note in the AMD warranty that implies the warranty is void if you don't use the stock cooler. I can't comment on the enforcement of that, but if AMD (and I love AMD) is going to write such a provision, they should provide a usable cooler.

Other Thoughts: This is not a powerhouse CPU. AMD is not marketing it as such. That said, it handles video processing pretty well. It gets a little warm even with an good cooler.
