Excerpt: We've already reviewed the top processor of AMD's Vishera family, . That was just the beginning of the big refresh for the Socket AM3+ platform. AMD has also rolled out a number of more affordable CPUs. Today we're going to cover them in comparison with the predecessors and competitors. There are four, not five dual-module processors at AMD's website.
AMD FX-8350, FX-8320, FX-6300 and FX-4300: All Vishera Processors in One Review!
4 December 2012
Summary: The launch of Socket AM3+ processors with Piledriver microarchitecture inspired many AMD fans. However, until recently we only based our opinion on the results obtained from the top model in the new AMD FX family. Today we are going to make up for this omission and carry out a detailed performance analysis of all Vishera processors with eight, six and four cores.
Conclusion: Before giving our impression of the Piledriver FX series, let's rewind for a minute and recap what we had learned up to this point. When the original Bulldozer-based FX chips landed roughly a year ago, they offered no real performance advantage over the existing Phenom II parts, particularly in our gaming and encoding benchmarks. Likewise, there was virtually no improvement made in terms of efficiency, i.e. power consumption.
AMD FX-8350 and FX-6300 Processor Review: Vishera Breaks Cover
23 October 2012
Excerpt: Bulldozer is the word. Ok, perhaps it is not “the” word, but it is “a” word. When AMD let that little codename slip some years back, AMD enthusiasts and tech journalists started to salivate about the possibilities. Here was a unique and very new architecture that promised excellent single thread performance and outstanding multi-threaded performance all in a package that was easy to swallow and digest. Probiotics for the PC. Some could argue that the end product for...
Conclusion: Our test method is briefly described here . The scores on diagrams are relative to that of our reference testbed that always scores 100 points. As of 2011, it's based on the AMD Athlon II X4 620 CPU, 8GB of RAM and Palit's NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 1280MB . Detailed (absolute) results are traditionally provided in this summary . This few-threading group of tests fits Core i3 well, not to mention Phenom II.
Excerpt: Un an après le lancement des processeurs FX basés sur l'architecture Bulldozer , AMD leur donne une descendance avec l'arrivée de l'architecture Piledriver. Au cœur de ces nouveaux processeurs AMD FX, une architecture revue et par ailleurs déjà aperçue au sein des processeurs A8 et A10 notamment (les Trinity). Mais alors qu'il y a un an AMD devait écraser la concurrence avec Bulldozer… force est de reconnaître que les successeurs des Phenom n'ont pas convaincu.
Conclusion: La CPU AMD FX-6300 ha mostrato muscoli e qualità senza dubbio apprezzabili. Sebbene le ottimizzazioni si vedano poco dal punto di vista dei risultati dei benchmark, nelle applicazioni più moderne e meglio parallelizzate, riescono ad offrire incrementi prestazionali non indifferenti rispetto ai processori FX di prima generazione.
Excerpt: Når det gælder AMD, er det altså 6300, der slås mod 8350. Til spil vinder den på knockout i første omgang. Efter meget spilleri kan vi bekræfte, at de ekstra kerner i 8350 ikke får sat nogen træffere ind, og det kan bedre betale sig at investere prisforskellen i et hurtigere grafikkort.
