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 processor, more than enough for gaming and anything else!

Pros: Been over a year now, and I am not sure I wouldn't buy the same one today! A lot of horsepower for a "budget" processor!

Cons: AMD will need to update their cores before I even think about buying another one!

Other Thoughts: The architecture is getting old AMD! I would love to see something exciting besides MANTLE!

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This processor is great for anyone on a strict budget.

Hopefully AMD processors will become even better with the newer games becoming more multi threaded.

Cons: Heat sink fan was bent, couldn't get it on so I had to order an after market one. Oh well, you really should get an after market heat sink anyways.

5 out of 5 eggsFast

Pros: It's all pros so far with this processor. It's fast and reliable. So far it keeps up with all my games and work load. I have no complaints right now. time will tell. I mixed this with a nice fatality motherboard from Asrock and it's seen some tough work loads with games and things for my job. very pleased with it

Cons: As of this point I have no cons.

4 out of 5 eggsSuch a deal

Pros: Cheap power, 6 cores are better than four! I built a system beyond my requirements for less than 1/2 the cost of an Intel based solution. I upgraded from a two year old FX-4100 system to this, nice improvement.

Same power requirements as my old quad core.

It was on sale and cost less than $100, less than the quad core FX.

Cons: Stock cooler useless, I didn't even unbox it. AMD needs to include water cooling or a decent air cooler.

I deducted one egg for the cooler

Other Thoughts: I've been building PCs since the early days of PC clones, I was tired of my PC being the second fastest one I worked on ... now it isn't.

Upgrade included:
FX-6300
Corsair H80i water cooler
ASUS M5A99FX Pro motherboard
8GB Mushkin Enhanced Redline DDR3 1866

5 out of 5 eggsAMD FX-6300

Pros: Just over a bill and 6 cores. Bam! Chip is fast, runs single-threaded apps just fine. Value value value.

Cons: Ummm, it's not a 9590? Only thing I could possible knock would be the stock fan, but I never intended to stock cool this chip anyway.

Other Thoughts: So impressed with this chip. Built a new box for the wife. Built myself one last year with a 4 core Deneb 965, and now I am jealous!
