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 eggsGreat for the price!

Pros: I mostly game; I've bought three of these so far, and I love them. I don't own the eight core versions, but benchmarks seem to show that they're nearly as good with much less heat and money involved. With a GTX 660 and this CPU I can play most any game nearly maxed out with about 60 FPS. It's also cool; with a pretty cheap offbrand aftermarket cooler I barely ever even hit 50C (usually 45C) running 100% 24/7 (folding when I'm not gaming). I also have one which uses the stock sink and fan which never hits 60C.

Cons: None so far.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Really powerful for the price.
Really powerful period.
With an adequate GPU (not the best) I replaced my old CPU with this one and saw a massive performance increase in game. (went from low/med settings to high/max)

Cons: Temp, like some others mentioned. This is more of a problem with the cooling system though, the radiator/fan combo is a little small and underpowered. I will be replacing this with a better cooling system.

Other Thoughts: It was recommended by a friend with certainty and it did not disappoint.

5 out of 5 eggsAMD FX-6300

Pros: I am really pleased with this CPU, was thinking about doing the 8 core, but wanted to keep the computer for a budget build. It is clocked at 4.1 GHz and runs cool and quiet. It has its stock fan and heat sink on it and runs cool even playing my games on Ultra. Very surprised and happy.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I was thinking about getting a heat sink for this but it runs just fine with the stock one and does not overheat even with my R9 card screaming the CPU is running cool. I am very happy with my choice.

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.
