The last few months have left me with a rather positive feeling towards AMD. It's the plucky little upstart, which is trying to maintain some competitiveness against the might of Intel, and with the Piledriver update to its CPU lineup we're seeing some...

The FX-4300 is an AMD processor that is on the market for a while, but can be found nowadays as an inexpensive option to the most powerful models, like the FX-6350 and the FX-8350. Let's check if is it a good option for a budget computer.Recently, we...

A few new processors appear this month: two from Intel and one from AMD. We also see moderate price drops from both companies, along with a particularly monumental price reduction on AMD's flagship FX-9590, which still doesn't make our recommended list....

Usually when we review new CPUs, it's the top model, and sometimes the one right below it. Not often do manufacturers send out low-end or mid-range models. If you were wondering why most hardware sites' last CPU review was probably the FX-8350 launch...

AMD FX-4300: Cheap Piledriver The first Piledriver CPU was presented not so long ago as the flagship AMD model. Afterwards, we got a few more CPUs with new and improved architecture, all recognisable by the already familiar naming schemes. The latest...

We've already reviewed the top processor of AMD's Vishera family, FX-8350. That was just the beginning of the big refresh for the Socket AM3+ platform. AMD has also rolled out a number of more affordable CPUs. Today we're going to cover them in...

Now that Piledriver-based CPUs and APUs are widely available (and the FX-8350 is selling for less than $200), it's a great time to compare value-oriented chips in our favorite titles. We're also breaking out a test that conveys the latency between...

The launch of Socket AM3+ processors with Piledriver microarchitecture inspired many AMD fans. However, until recently we only based our opinion on the results obtained from the top model in the new AMD FX family. Today we are going to make up for this omission and carry out a detailed performance analysis of all Vishera processors with eight, six and four...

While the FX-8350 may have hogged the lion’s share of AMD’s Vishera launch coverage, a number of more affordable processors were introduced alongside it. The six core FX-6300 and quad core FX-4300 are both priced under $140 and should provide some...

Last year's launch of AMD's FX processors was honestly disappointing. The Bulldozer CPU cores that were bundled into each Zambezi chip were hardly power efficient and in many areas couldn't significantly outperform AMD's previous generation platform....

The first generation processors based on AMD's Bulldozer architecture did not meet expectations, so AMD is making a second attempt today, with FX 2.0 or Vishera. The Piledriver cores are a refinement and further development of Bulldozer, that are...

Piledriver arhitektura i Vishera jezgre, donijele su određene IPC pomake u odnosu na stariju arhitekturu, a kao što smo vidjeli i potrošnja je nešto smanjena. FX-4300 je vrlo dobar procesor koji u 95W TDP-u donosi solidne performanse za svakodnevni rad,...

Der er ikke noget, vi elsker højere end en billig monsterdræber. Derfor burde AMD FX-4300 være helt oppe at ringe. Men problemerne begynder, så snart man ser på...

Attendue depuis l'apparition de Trinity cet été au cœur des ordinateurs portables, la nouvelle version de l'architecture Bulldozer d'AMD, à savoir PileDriver, s'avère pour le moins convaincante. Les progrès face à Bulldozer sont bien réels et s'il...

AMD réussit à augmenter les performances de ses processeurs haut de gamme, c’est un fait, surtout sur les applications multi-threadées. En revanche, les lacunes de la génération précédente sont toujours présentes et il serait temps que la société se...
