AMD New AMD FX Line-Up Brings Faster Speeds and Higher Performance


AMD is updating its FX family of central processing units (CPUs) that continues the brand?s history of delivering a fully unlocked and customizable experience for performance desktop PC users.

At the heart of the latest AMD FX processor is the new "Piledriver" multi-core architecture that offers up to a 15 percent increase in performance compared to the company's "Bulldozer" chps, at a lower price than the previous generation - with the highest-performing AMD FX processors starting at less than $200. The increased performance from the latest architecture is designed for multi-threaded applications like content creation, video and audio encoding, and games.



AMD is promoting its new AMD FX CPUs along with other AMD technologies and products, like an AMD 9-Series chipset motherboard and AMD Radeon HD 7000 Series graphics cards with AMD Eyefinity technology multi-monitor support. The company also provides gamers downloadable software upgrades that free the user to push performance with the AMD OverDrive utility, manage their gaming with AMD Catalyst Control Center, or harness the power of multiple graphic cards working in parallel with AMD CrossFire technology.

The four new models - numbered FX-8350, FX 8320, FX-6300 and FX-4200 - are the first to use the updated Piledriver architecture.

However, initial reviews have been cautious claiming that AMD still hasn't caught up to Intel in terms of performance and efficiency.

Starting today, the new AMD FX CPUs will be available from global retailers:
