AMD processors are loaded with high-end features and cutting-edge technology which promises power-packed performance to your computer. Boost your computer with an AMD processor and feel the difference as you work.
The AMD processor comes safe in a box, with tamper-resistant packaging and a unique bar code, so it can be tracked easily. In the box, you shall find: a high-performance AMD processor, an AMD-qualified heat sink u0026 fan with thermal interface, an installation manual, an AMD processor case sticker and a certificate of authenticity.
The AMD processor is designed with new instruction capabilities. Its Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) enhance parallelism for scientific u0026 3D apps using heavy floating point calculations. Additionally, FMA4 u0026 XOP - Floating-Point Vector Multiply-Accumulate u0026 eXtended Operations improves performance on many integers u0026 floating point vector functions. The Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) increases the performance of encryption apps such as PCMark® u0026 TrueCrypt®.
We call it the new AMD FX 8-Core Processor Black Edition and itu0027s unlocked for your overclocking pleasure.1 Experience unmatched multitasking and pure core performance with the industryu0027s first 32 nm 8-core desktop processor. Get the speed you crave with AMD Turbo CORE Technology to push your core frequencies to the limit when you need it most. Go beyond the limits of maximum speed with easy-to-use AMD OverDrive™ and AMD Catalyst Control Center™ software suites. But the best part of all? Youu0027ll get all this impressive performance at an unbelievable price. Youu0027ll be asking yourself "what competition?" in no time.
This is the industryu0027s first and only native 8-core desktop processor for unmatched multitasking and pure core performance. New 32 nanometer die shrink designed to reduce leakage for improved efficiency, increased clock rate headroom and better thermals. The special Turbo CORE technology helps boost the performance of those applications which require it the most.
The AMD processor has a balanced smart cache, that is, it comes with a shared L3 cache (up to 8MB) so as to improve scheduling and pre-fetch capabilities. It has 64-ways (16-ways/sub-cache), increased data queue sizes and coherency for 8 cores. The processor has a shared floating point (FP) scheduler and dual 128-bit floating point engines, which can group together for 256-bit AVX instructions, or even separately with each core.
The processor can transport a single 16-bit link at the rate of 5600MT per second. It can transfer up to 8.0GB per second HyperTransport I/O bandwidth and up to 16GB per second in HyperTransport Generation 3.0 mode. HyperTransport and Memory Bus speed, combined, make it transfer up to 37 GB per second total delivered processor-to-system bandwidth.
The processor has a high-bandwidth, low-latency integrated memory controller. It supports up to DDR3-1866 with 1 DPC (DIMM per Channel) in single memory slot motherboard designs. It also supports new low voltage memories of 1.35V and 1.2V. It has up to 29.9 GB per second memory bandwidth for DDR3. It also has pre-fetcher improvements. It has direct communications to each core in dual-core module (APIC registers in each core).
It has silicon enhancements for better performance, security u0026 sustainability of existing and future virtualization environments, which provide virtualized apps with direct and rapid access to their allocated memory. IOMMU is an extension to AMD64 architecture so as to support address translation u0026 access protection on DMA transfers. It also provides for user-level application and virtual machine guest OS. It helps with address translation and access control, device isolation, device assignment in virtualized systems, trusted boot support and unified interrupt management.
This technology automatically and instantly adjusts performance states and features, based on processor performance. The C6 power state allows all cores in C6 to power even lower for quieter operation and reduced power requirements. It has a separate memory power controller. It is I/O-based c-state interface. It works automatically without the need for drivers or BIOS enablement. The power can be switched on or off within a single clock-cycle, conserving energy without affecting performance.
This AMD FX-8350 processor provides numerous efficiency improvements in high-performance computing.The 32-nanometer die shrink design with Silicon-on-insulator (SIO) technology, ensures increased clock rate, better thermals and improved efficiency.
The AMD Turbo Core technology dynamically adjusts the performance of the processor to suit the requirements of the operating system. The unlocked 8-core processor also allows maximum tunable performance based on your need for speed.
The AMD FX 8350 processor is built with 8 MB of L2 and L3 cache memory to provide an unbelievably powerful performance. The processor is designed with a frequency range of 4.0/4.2 GHz, providing you blazing speeds while you run applications and play games that require heavy graphics.
