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-8350 close to 70 degrees and higher is not recommended.

Q: Is it possible to upgrade my AMD FX-8350 CPU?
A: No. This is the fastest microprocessor for Socket AM3+.

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 line FX-series processors are shipped in tin cans, which creates an illusion of more expensive, and consequently better quality products. The top lid of the can has an insert, that keeps the lid in place when it's closed.

AMD introduces second-generation FX processors
Oct 23, 2012: 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 than the former flagship FX-8150 model. Three other CPUs, FX-4300, FX-6300 and FX-6320, also offer better performance than their first-generation counterparts.

Prices of upcoming AMD FX microprocessors
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.

Boxed AMD FX-8350 has surfaced on eBay
Oct 12, 2012: AMD FX family will be refreshed in the second half of October, and the refresh will bring faster and slightly more efficient desktop processors to the masses. The fastest FX model, FX-8350, will come with 8 cores and impressive looking (on the spec sheet) 4 GHz frequency. The CPU will be released only in a week or two, but if you don't want to wait that long, you can grab one on eBay, while there is still time.

AMD A-Series to launch on October 2, FX-Series on October 23
Sep 25, 2012: While Intel is almost done releasing new desktop processors for the rest of the year, AMD has only started. Next month we will see new lineups, based on the latest AMD Piledriver microarchitecture, which is a tweaked for better performance and power consumption Bulldozer architecture. A-Series "Trinity" Accelerated Processing Units will target budget / mainstream segments of the desktop market, and, according to SemiAccurate, they will be introduced on October 2.

Pre-order prices of AMD FX "Piledriver" CPUs
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.

Some details of AMD Piledriver CPUs
Aug 28, 2012: This fall AMD will release large number of new desktop processors, built on the latest Piledriver microarchitecture. With the exception of a couple of chips, details of upcoming lineup were known well ahead of the launch. Yesterday Expreview published a slide, titled "2012 Consumer Platform Quick Reference Guide for Desktops", that confirmed clock frequencies of upcoming "Piledriver" products, and shed some light on supported technologies.

Details of AMD A6-5400K and FX-8350 processors
Jul 04, 2012: In February Donanimhaber leaked AMD roadmap, that so far has been very accurate. The roadmap's second quarter included new A8-Series and A10-Series "Trinity" processors, as well as E1-1200 and E2-1800 APUs from Brazos 2.0 platform, all of which were either announced or launched in June. Based on the roadmap, planned new SKUs for the third quarter are A4-5300 and A6-5400K Accelerated Processing Units, as well as FX-8350, FX-8320, FX-6300 and FX-4320 high-performance chips. The roadmap slide doesn't have detailed specifications of unreleased chips, but many details of the A6-5400K and FX-8350 SKUs were recently disclosed by Fudzilla.

AMD to launch Brazos 2.0 in June, desktop APUs in August
May 14, 2012: This and next quarter AMD plans to release new generation of Accelerated Processing Units (APUs). Soon to be available microprocessors will use enhanced microarchitecture, and feature significantly improved on-chip graphics, codenamed Graphics Core Next. There were a couple of reports in the past month, placing the launch of first mobile APUs in the middle of May. Release date for mobile APUs was confirmed last week by DigiTimes. They also revealed launch dates of desktop APUs, and ultra low voltage processors from Brazos 2.0 platform.

AMD's CPU and APU Line-Up thru Q3 2012
Feb 12, 2012: A slide has been leaked by Donanimhaber that shows AMDs product line-up for the next 2 quarters in the APU and CPU markets. The slide shows that we will be seeing Trinity A8- and A10-series in Q2, replacing Llano A8 in the high end APU sector. At the same time, Brazos 2.0 will replace Brazos in the mobile range. The rest of the Trinity range will be available in Q3, along with Vishera, the replacement for Zambezi in the performance sector.

Me and less than 20 other people got one of these for free at AMD's Fan Day event day before yesterday, I'm working on selling it so I took some photos (It's hard to sell because there's a lack of info available)

I also might mention one of the game dev's said it's supposed to hit the market in about 2 weeks.

I also have a picture of the box it came in, HOWEVER mine comes with a liquid cooling kit.

Top of the line FX 8350 processor was released in black-and-red cool looking metal tin boxes with rounded corners, very similar to FX 8100 series metal boxes. These boxes contain: the CPU, case badge sticker, installation instructions with warranty information in multiple languages, and the heatsink/fan with copper base and heat pipes.

Why is it called as a river in Russia (Vishera)? Previous same Zambezi - River in Africa ... Black humor? How do things stand with PCI-e 3.0 Gfx boards? Backward processor for backward regions!

No one is bothered by the fact that the analogue of this processor will be in the PS4? Even fans of AMD despise these toy bulldozers 'black humor edition'.

Posted by: Obscure

The new Xbox has the exact same processor with 8 (AMD) cores like the PS4. 8 gigs of shared memory, integrated gfx in CPU such A-10 but 8 cores like a FX 8xxx. I saw this LiveShow a few minutes ago, I think that AMD will earn tons of money on new consoles, but the PC market will be completely abandoned.

These "Obscure'D analogue" are BobCat/Jaguar Low Performance CPUs - it much worse than Bulldozer. But who cares? Kids wanna play, they not understand that pseudo consoles take Sony into oblivion, and Microsoft take the leads. Buy Nintendo WiiU and forget about AMDeuce!
