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 eight “Piledriver” cores ensure unrivaled multitasking and pure core performance. 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 8-core Vishera processor black edition is unlocked for fabulous overclocking* capability.  Unrivaled 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 8 Piledriver cores The native 8-core desktop processor delivers unrivaled multitasking and pure core performance 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).

4 out of 5 eggsTwo words: Thermal Throttling

Pros: 8 Integer Cores
suspected microcode fixes
Better memory bandwidth than Phenom II

Cons: Hot, even at stock speed with turbo disabled
Tried using CM Hyper 212 EVO - not cool enough
Upgraded to Noctua NH-D14 - not cool enough!
Swapped out the Noctua's fans for faster - better but CPU still throttles.

Thermal throttle: when CPU core/package hits 65 C, clock throttles down from 4000 (stock with Turbo disabled) to 1400 and then dithers between the two. This currently happens around 85% load. ( Was happening at 60% load with the Hyper 212 EVO)

Looks like Water cooling will be required to get this (particular) CPU to run at stock speed without thermal throttling.

Other Thoughts: "suspected microcode fixes" involves a hang at the POST screen, after a raid card's BIOS loaded -- used to happen with Phenom II, doesn't happen with FX-8350 in otherwise identical system -- probable Errata

AMD Overdrive is something of a joke. The CPU temps reflected (by "Thermal Margin" or delta between current temp and some mythical red line) show 20 to 25 C "headroom" left when the thermal throttling kicks in. There's no way this chip could ever hit the limit (unless throttling is disabled, which probably voids the warranty)

Unless this chip was designed to run throttled at high load, it's possible that mine has excessive leakage current (and should have been binned lower).

Never had thermal issues with Phenom II x4, even OC'd to 4GHz

5 out of 5 eggsGreat cpu

Pros: 1. With after market cpu cooler (Vegas) has ran fast and cool since Jan.
2. A multitasking beast.

Cons: 2nd rig i have built both times using Amd cpu's, both of which have did there jobs well.

5 out of 5 eggsLOVING IT!

Pros: Fast, great on a budget build. OC easy to 4.7 on H100, no temp issues at all.

Cons: None yet.

5 out of 5 eggsThe CPU that rocks

Pros: Great processor for the money. No longer gaming like I used to but this cpu still does an excellent job when paired with a decent similar classed gpu. Owned this cpu since Dec 2102, not a single problem in a machine that is on 24/7. I've personally built over 60 rigs [all AMD] the last 14 years and this cpu has been my main one for the longest stretch in that time period.

Cons: you are not going to win any benchmark titles with this, even when it was new but then again, you might not find a better bang for your buck. Has not gone down in price in 2 years.

5 out of 5 eggsBest budget CPU

Pros: I bought this for my new budget gaming PC, and it was money well spent. Newegg reduced the price by ~$20 the day that I bought it, making it the best deal hands down.

Overclocked from 4ghz to 5ghz with a ~$50 liquid cooler that has 2 fans over the radiator. Stays ~50C while playing WoW on all Ultra.

Cons: Not as good single core performance as Intel, but still works great. I play WoW and WoW tends to prefer intel CPUs, but intels are bad at overclocking due to their cooling and are a lot more expensive, I still think this is the smarter purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsAMD all the way!

Pros: plug it in and it runs w/o problems

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: 3rd rig I've build using this cpu on an ASUS M5A97 R2.0 motherboard and they all work get! (why in the world would someone pay almost $1200 for an Intel sticker?)

5 out of 5 eggsMore power than my graphics card can handle.

Pros: The only time I've tried to put any strain on this thing is when gaming... and even then the fan has never gone up to full speed.

Cons: More powerful than I actually need. I actually feel slightly foolish for buying this thing since I doubt anything I do will ever really push it's limits.

Other Thoughts: Old components were giving BSOD. Narrowed it down to CPU, MB, or RAM... so replaced all 3, along with HD and OS. (XP kept nagging me about it being unsupported.)
No more BSOD, and even simple tasks like browsing the internet are insanely smooth now.
