Submission + - AMD Releases Vishera: The FX-8350 and FX-6300 Reviewed (

JoshMST writes: "AMD is today releasing their latest flagship processors on the AM3+ platform. Vishera is the codename of the Piledriver enabled desktop chips that contain upwards of 4 Piledriver modules and 8MB of L3 cache. While AMD has struggled mightily as of late, perhaps the new FX-8350 will at least be a competent and competitive part against Intel's sub $230 lineup. AMD has increased IPC for these parts, as well as lowering power consumption. This combination has allowed AMD to release a 4GHz four module part with performance that should keep up very well in highly threaded applications."
