AMD Launches New FX Family Processor Line-Up w/ Piledriver
AMD announced an update to the Guinness World Record-setting AMD 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 at a lower price than the previous generation – with the highest-performing AMD FX-8350 processors starting at $195. The increased performance from the latest architecture is designed for multi-threaded applications like content creation, video and audio encoding, and games, allowing users extreme responsiveness and mega-tasking performance.

“Gamers and PC enthusiasts who buy AMD FX processors have even more to cheer about with the increased speeds and value we are delivering starting today,” said Leslie Sobon, vice president of Desktop and Component Products, AMD. “After introducing the industry’s first and only eight-core desktop processor last year, we now have even faster stock frequencies and an all-new, high-performance x86 core architecture to satisfy power-users.”
