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. Eight “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 eight-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.

The bundled processor is updated, named Wraith, giving you better cooling performance while reducing the noise to the level near threshold of human hearing. You'll get better experience from all your applications.

*AMD’s product warranty does not cover damage caused by overclocking even when overclocking is enabled via AMD Overdrive software.

ehhhh

Pros: i can do what i need it to do some of the time. i know it's years later and it still performs well at the time, tryed OC it, and i got worse results in return, i tryed everyother way to get it to perform better, but got worst. but, at stock, it is awesome for gaming @ 1080 W\ max settings if you have a good gfx card in. but to me, it's just ehhhhh

Cons: good performance, handles anything i can throw at it............until cinabench hits it, with an all CPU test i have throw'en at it. it seems to do quite poor for it's specs. maybe i need to de-lid it and redo stock speeds, but it's not worth it these days, that's why im going with intel cause of the specs and reviews.

Other Thoughts: i would love to have this CPU working at it's peak, but it's not, so that's why i am going with Intel instead of AMD, more expensive but you get what you pay for. the extra $40 should go to Intel because of there performance record. you get what you paid for from them i guess..

Great processor when I used it

Pros: - Always ran everything I threw at it.
- capable of gaming on star citizen coupled with a 770gx but this cpu pair with a newer 1080 could last a bit for gaming much longer
- good for rendering multithreaded for its time, still handles vm's pretty well when i use it.
- still a solid chip to use for video/graphics editing on a budget
- capable of streaming at 720p on twitch while gaming at 1080p medium graphics with most games

Cons: non really, outlasted its projected life by about 5:1 and I still use it for everything short of the newest gaming and streaming, I have a new Ryzen setup for that

Other Thoughts: Still would be a great processor for an every day machine, movies, gaming on most titles still with a new gpu, runs vm's and servers great, obviously this isn't going to cut it for creating a 4k-8k video content but it wasn't never designed too. It can achieve the potential of its era and still some after but if your going for 2k-4k-8k content now, you will need to give up this processor for something new.

Not for the newest gaming rig but does the job wonderfully on the cheap

Pros: Runs at 4.337GHz without changing any settings,

Cons: runs a little warm 40's idle 50's under medium-heavy load with the stock fan, haven't stress tested anything though

Other Thoughts: Replaced a nearly decade old 8120 that was having serious overheating issues under even light loads. Took 20 mins to replace and get back to windows.

Nice upgrade, came with RGB cooler!

Pros: - 13 to 27% performance upgrade over my 1100t CPU, depending on application
- Stays cool, runs smoothly, costed me a lot less than a platform upgrade to Ryzen
- Will keep my rig running for another 10 years!
- Has the new RGB Wraith cooler unstead of the old FX one
- Cooler is dead silent compared to my Hyper 212 (1st gen, not Evo)
- I can eat this month because I saved a lot of money!

Cons: - It is last gen's tech, the upgrade path probably ends here.
- Small, undocumented, issue with the RGB lighting on internal USB, but easy fix. (see details)
- I will need to upgrade my RAM to get the full potential of this CPU
- I have no reason to give to my wife to justify the upgrade to Ryzen anymore.
- Can't brag about a new Ryzen setup since I won't buy it.

Other Thoughts: This CPU is the best you can get on this aging platform... It surprisingly came with the RGB cooler, thanks NewEgg !
If you have issues with the blue or green LEDs on the cooler with the USB cable plugged in, just up the fan speed a bit and it will run nicely... RGB controller is inside the cooler and runs from the fan header. Blue and green LEDs need more voltage to run than red ones, hence the issue. The cool thing is that once you have set the color pattern you like, you can unplug the USB wire and the cooler retains your setup. No need for the cable anymore!
