AMD FX-8350 Review: Improved and Advanced

Processors AMD FX Vishera are considered to be 'heavy metal' in the AMD's inventory. They belong to the products of the second generation and employ an advanced Piledriver architecture. This architecture is intended primarily at managing multi-threading applications to provide for improved performance, if compared with CPUs of the first generation. In addition, FX Vishera chips feature reasonable correlation of power, facilities and price.



Platform and Architecture


CPU AMD FX-8350 is compatible with motherboards which contain AM3+ socket and high-performance logics AMD 990FX, AMD 970, and AMD 990X. It should be noted that boards with such chipsets are able to offer two additional PCI Express x16 sockets which are characterized by high speed index on integration of two video adapters. AMD FX series consists of four CPU models; FX-8350 and FX-8320 house eight cores, FX-6300 feature six cores, while junior model FX-4300 contents itself with only four cores.
