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 eggsThis is a great CPU

Pros: its very good for the price

Cons: sorta bad single core preformance

Other Thoughts: AMD is almost always bad with single core performance so the con is something you have to know your gonna get with AMD

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent Value!!

Pros: I had already built a system using an 8350 (8 cores) and figured for the next time around I would try a 6300 (6 core) because I had acqired some parts from a friend for a 2nd rig. I couldn't be more pleased with the purchase. It's not as fast as an 8350 stock, but it manages quite nicely with various applications and graphics intensive games at 3.5 GHz. The cpu can be overclocked to run upwards to 5.0 GHz, but I have no plans to do that.

Cons: Typically, AMD's chips usually run hot because they use more power to run all the cores @ the rated speed vs Intel. However, this particular chip's TDP is rated @ 95W, which is not bad for a 6 core cpu. However, you may still want a good aftermarket fan with copper based heat-sink and piping to keep the heat in check. The stock coolers are not that great in my opinion.

5 out of 5 eggsUnbeatable Value

Pros: For the current price of $110, you will not find a more capable processor anywhere, especially not from Intel. Intel's Pentium line of processors are great value for a lower price, and they're unlocked. However, they're only dual core, as compared to AMD's 4, 6, and even 8 core processors. An i5-4690k is unlocked and compares in clock speed, but still has 2 less cores and will cost more than twice what an FX-6300 costs. In terms of price to performance ratio, the FX-6300 is unbeatable

Cons: None whatsoever

5 out of 5 eggsThe good thing

Pros: This CPU is fantastic for the price you pay.
Runs all my games and programs without any problem.

Cons: If you overclock your CPU it is better to buy a new heatsink and fan.
the stock cooler is ok only i f you don't overclock.

5 out of 5 eggsBang for buck

Pros: Great CPU for the price, ran great right out of the box, unlocked for overclocking, lots of overhead for overclocking.

Cons: Could have a nicer CPU cooler to allow overclocking, will be ungraded before I would even attempt it.

Other Thoughts: No need to overclock at this point, plays DayZ SA at 23-30 in towns and 40-50 in woods with R9 280 @ 1080p high settings.
