When is the next round of Piledrivers CPU's coming out?

Am looking at getting an AMD 8350 FX CPU, but hear rumblings a new series of Piledriver chips is coming. Will there be a new 8XXX chip coming out anytime soon?

  1. The 8350 FX is part of the new Piledriver series. It is rumoured to have a 10-15% performance increase from the Bulldozer series
  2. Yes, knew that. However, when is the next 8XXX 8-core Piledriver coming out is my question?
  3. The 8350 came out a couple weeks ago. Wait a year and you might see steamroller.
  4. Thanks Mactronix. I'll stick to the 125W 8350 for now. As long as PD (and hopefully SR) sticks with AM3+ socket I'll be able to upgrade as needed.

    No i doubt they will they have to be focused on steamroller and that should have a lower 95w according to leaks but get the piledriver unless youre willing to wait a week
