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. Four “Piledriver” cores ensure rich, crisp video and seamless 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 4-core Vishera processor black edition is unlocked for fabulous overclocking* capability. Great 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 4 Piledriver cores The native 4-core desktop processor ensures rich, crisp video and seamless multitasking. 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).

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Cheap, Snappy performance. Bang for the buck is definitely a big pro for this cpu.

Cons: I only got to use this cpu for about a week due to multiple board failures. Runs hotter than I would have liked to see from a 32nm cpu. Definitely needs aftermarket cooling solution.

5 out of 5 eggsBought in COMBO #1416378

Pros: Purchased this as a cheap plex media server, see the combo number to look up the rest of it. Running Ubuntu 14.04 with plex media server and it runs very well. If you find a similar combo deal or this one comes back. It is a cheap way to get a media server in your home.

Cons: For the combo price of $240 delivered, there is no con to it.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU for the price

Pros: Impressive power for a CPU this cheap. I would recommend this to anyone who needs a quad core on a budget.

Cons: The fan and heatsink that come in the box are one step above garbage. I had to take an egg off for this, because they are so poor. The fan is unbearably loud, and struggles to keep the CPU cool during intensive use. It's no wonder with the tiny heatsink and laughable thermal paste that comes with it though. I will be upgrading the cooling very soon.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU!

Pros: -Low price for performance
-Not over 100W
-able to process games easily

Cons: -went on sale lower after I bought mine
-stock CPU fan is loud compared to my friends CPU
-still high power consumption

Other Thoughts: I bought this CPU from a competitor locally because of the deal I got for the CPU and MB, but either way this CPU is a great option for someone who is looking to get into gaming or even if you want a good CPU to make thing happen seamlessly in your day to day tasks. I play WoW and with just the CPU and an old school GT 210 with only 2GB of RAM I was pushing 50-70fps on average settings. Upgrading to a GTX 750Ti and 4 GB of RAM and I am pushing 110FPS on high/ultra settings. Great CPU for processor heavy games.
