Detailed side-by-side comparison
Q: My processor is running 55C under load. Is this normal?
A: Safe CPU temperatures are 60 degrees Celsius and below. It may
still run fine with CPU temperatures, exceeding 60C threshold by a
few degrees. Running the FX-8320 close to 70 degrees and higher is not

AMD FX-8000 CPU series: What is under the lid?
Jan 13, 2013
: This is not going to be a long and boring article explaining
different features of AMD FX microprocessors. Instead, we will have
some fun actually looking under the lid. As you may know, top of the

: AMD today introduced second-generation FX-Series microprocessors, based on Piledriver
microarchitecture. The released lineup consists of 4 products, having
4, 6, and 8 CPUs cores, and operating frequencies up to 4.2 GHz. The fastest
processor in the series, eight-core FX-8350, has up to 15% higher performance

Oct 18, 2012
: Less than a week left before the launch AMD FX processors with
"Vishera" core. The new processors will be faster than older "Zambezi"
CPUs, although it remains to be seen by how much. The performance will
be one of the factors determining success of new products. Another
factor will be how well they are positioned against Intel Core i3/i5
lineups, and against AMD's older FX models, and this directly relates
to their pricing.

Sep 20, 2012
: Next generation of AMD FX microprocessors is around the corner.
Built on "Vishera" design, new FX chips will have from 4 to 8 CPU
cores, and pack as much as 16 MB of combined L2 and L3 cache on a
chip. The CPUs will feature better performance than the first Bulldozer
models, partially due to more efficient "Piledriver"
microarchitecture, and partially due to higher stock frequencies. The
FX processors will be available in October, while some reports place
the launch as early as October 1.
