AMD FX-8350 Vishera 8-Core CPU Review

HotHardware
23 October 2012
  • Conclusion: Performance Summary: The FX-8350 is the most powerful desktop processor released by AMD to date. The improvements afforded by its updated Piledriver microarchitecture, in addition to significantly increased frequencies, have resulted in a processor that clearly outperforms its Bulldozer-based predecessors across the board. And it does so while consuming less power, which hints at its improved efficiency as well.
  • Pros: Good Performance, Decent Overclocker, Improved Efficiency, Easy Upgrade For Existing AMD Owners
  • Cons: Dated Platform, Intel CPUs Still Clearly Faster

  • Conclusion: But those starting a PC build from scratch—even those who have a soft spot in their motherboards for AMD-based builds—may want to seriously consider Intel at this point. We still like AMD's 900-series chipsets for their features and support for a plethora of USB 3.0 ports. And the wealth of motherboards available for these chips means you may save some money over a similarly priced Intel board in the short term.
  • Pros: Reasonably priced, Appreciable performance improvements with multicore-optimized software, Compatible with older AMD socket and motherboards
  • Cons: Still lags behind in single-core tests, Uses much more power than comparable Intel chips, which also have on-chip graphics

AMD FX-8350 Processor Review: Tuned-Up Bulldozer

X-bit labs
22 October 2012
  • Summary: Piledriver microarchitecture, a refreshed Bulldozer, has finally reached the flagship AMD FX processors. Will it make the Socket AM3+ platform more appealing than LGA 1155? Quite possible, because the new AMD microarchitecture wasn’t the only trick they had up their sleeve.

  • Excerpt: Det er naturligvis blevet lidt sværere at definere, hvad en kerne er, efter at AMD lancerede Bulldozer-arkitekturen i slutningen af 2011. Med delte flydende komma-resurser for hvert par heltal-enheder kan man argumentere for, at denne chip er både quad core og eight core. I virkeligheden er den et sted midtimellem.
