I read that Windows 7 doesn't "see" the cores on AMD FX processors correctly and needs a hot fix if one is using Windows 7. Actually, I read this about the Bulldozer, but assumed the Piledriver would need this too. Do I need this hotfix with a FX-6300? And if so, could someone please link me to it? I found Microsoft's hotfix page for the 1st gen FX chips, but no luck finding anything for the 2nd gen. Oh, I also read that there may be 2 hotfixes or patches. ??
There is no hotfix for Piledriver as far as I know. The first hot fixes did next to nothing and was quickly withdrawn in a matter of a few weeks after being released. As far as I know Microsoft never botherd with any other hot fixes and why would they no amount of hot fixes will fix Bulldozers problems.
