Feb 01, 2013
: Earlier this week XBiT laboratories
published two slides,

products were Piledriver-based FX-4300, FX-6300, FX-8320 and FX-8350 CPUs with
"Vishera" core. The most intriguing was that the FX-4130 had box part
number FD4130WMHKBOX, which was different from previously launched
FX-4130 CPU with FD4130FRGUBOX box SKU.
