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).

1 out of 5 eggsWEAK

Pros: Great Hockey Puck!

Cons: This processor is pathetic, its very weak, my first time with AMD and probably the last. I'm not looking to game, I just wanted basic internet, web browser, e-mail, downloads, you tube, type of processing power and this proc disappointed me on all levels, its very slow even with a SSD and clean install of Windows 7 with 24 GB RAM DD3

Other Thoughts: Stick with Intel, 4 cores is just not enough power for today's computers, quad core was great 5-7 years ago with Windows XP, if you are using Windows 7 or newer you need at least 6 to 8 cores or more, seriously!

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent CPU

Pros: It's fast and powerful. Plenty of horsepower at stock settings to run my games flawlessly.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: There are faster chips and chips with more cores, but they cost more and will draw more energy from the PSU. This is plenty sufficient for gaming.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Impressed

Pros: Very fast for the price. Stable and runs cool. Inexpensive.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I bought this for my son's computer (he's 11), and by the time I got done building it, it felt every bit as fast as my Intel i7 system! Bang for the buck is really good, so much so I think my next system may be AMD for myself!

4 out of 5 eggsHeatsink size

Pros: it did as its supposed to do, its a great processor in my opinion. my issue was with the heatsink

Cons: to start I have an AsRock 970 Extreme3, i tried to put the stock heat sink on the processor and felt i was going to break the motherboard with the pressure from the clip. So i salvaged an old AM2 socket heatsink with a Cooler Master fan i bought in like 08 and it was a bit shorter but wider than the stock cooler. I am using this for my rig now.

5 out of 5 eggsused for upgrade

Pros: worked great right out of the box

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: bought this item to replace my old processor when i tried to take the processor fan out to clean it and the processor came out with it and some of the pins got bent. the thermal compound i used that time was the artic silver ceramique and it was like it had turned to cement lol did keep the processor cool but still
