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 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 6-core Vishera processor is fully 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.

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.

for its time, a decent CPU 8/20/2020 5:47:13 AM

Pros: in most instances, a super easy upgrade for an FX-6300 system.
decent ddr3 cpu
can double as a space heater during the winter

Cons: its really beginning to show its age.
ddr3 only. AM3/AM3+
some people have noted high temps, but pretty normal for this cpu

Overall Review: for its time, this wasnt a bad option. if you are still stuck on ddr3 and a AM3/AM3+ board compatible with the FX series of cpus, this is about the best youre really gonna do. i would HIGHLY recommend upgrading to AM4 platform at this time. i mean, this will work fine for basic office work and things like that, notekeeping, internet browsing and other basic things, but dont expect to be gaming in 1080p or higher with high-ish settings any more. this cpu just doesnt cut it any more for that. itll run things and if you set things on lowest settings at 720p and 1080, you MIGHT get lucky in some titles and be able to squeeze that sweet 60fps out of this, but dont count on it.... if youre considering buying this, i would recommend looking into just upgrading to an AM4 system instead and it wont really cost you much more. this CPU is at-near end of life for gaming and is like late middle aged person for basic office sort of stuff. this cpu just isnt gonna give you the lifespan you may want.

Shoutout to the seller DoDo DIY 8/17/2020 11:15:43 AM

Pros: The chip came in simple but effective packaging, and most importantly: It works.

Overall Review: I feel lucky to have found a supplier for an older chip in the AM3 family that I could use to give extra longevity to my trusty old tower.

Fantastic 8/9/2020 9:31:40 PM

Pros: Great speed with a lot of power. The heatsink that comes with this CPU is beastly for a stock fan; keeps everything at a decent temp with no overclocking.

Cons: None

Update Aug. 2020: The stock CPU fan is extremely loud, had to get a much quieter aftermarket one.

Overall Review: Wish it produced a little more power without OC'ing, but I'm just being greedy.

Update Aug. 2020: Still using this processor in my PC and still working just fine. I did switch out the heatsink with an aftermarket one about four years ago because it was way too loud. I had done streaming around that time and it was loud enough to be picked up by my microphone when it would hit full speed. Would still recommend this processor if you can get it secondhand at a decent price.

Is quality control a thing? 8/7/2020 3:06:19 PM

Pros: It arrived on time. Bravo.

Cons: Covered in thermal paste.

Overall Review: I've been waiting to fix a computer for work and thought that after seeing the other reviews I could trust this seller. When the CPU arrived, it was filthy. The chip itself looked like someone used half a syringe of paste and slapped a cooler on it then returned it. I'm not sure if there's any kind of quality control with this seller, but they really need to step it up. If I hadn't noticed (translation: If I were blind) I might have installed it without a deep cleaning and lost the new motherboard along with the CPU. I kind of assumed that 'like new' meant that I would have at the very least gotten a clean chip. Hopefully an hour or two of cleaning will help.

Works fine with most applications. 8/4/2020 7:25:51 AM

Pros: 1. Inexpensive upgrade route if you already own an AM3+ motherboard.
2. Works well with almost every application.
3. You can game with this processor in mid-2020.

Cons: 1. Run hot with the original AMD stock cooler.

Overall Review: An economical upgrade if you already have a motherboard that already supports AM3+ processor. Get another aftermarket cooler if you want less noise and lower operating temperatures.

Great performer! 7/15/2020 4:04:14 PM

Pros: Still going after 3 years.

Cons: CPU fan started high pitch whirring after 3 years. Going to replace with another fan that will clip on the heat sink. Not a big deal.

Overall Review: Recommend AMD for price and value. Have built many custom PC's from parts bought on New Egg. AMD chips each time. They have lasted me for many years each time.
