The new CPUs incorporate AMD's "Piledriver" architecture, and will be available on launch as an eight-core, six-core, and four-core processors.

The flagship FX-8350 is listed with a 4.00 GHz clock speed (4.20 GHz TurboCore speed), eight-cores, and TDP of 125W. The FX-6300 features 3.50 GHz clock speed (4.10 GHz TurboCore speed), six-cores and TDP of 95W.

None of the FX processors support integrated GPU, but support a full list of "Piledriver" features, such as AMD Perfect Picture HD, AMD Steady Video 2.0 Technology and AMD Wireless Display.

In addition, the leaked document confirms clock speeds, integrated GPU, and GPU cores of several FM2 A-series APUs, such as the A10-5700, A8-5500 and E2-1800.

    you know... at only 95 watts, and a 4ghz base frequency, and also improved IPC on piledriver, the FX4320 could be quite the potent value cpu. would quickly make the i3's obsolete at any rate. heres hoping they deliver!

    More performance at the same frequency than the FX81xx CPUs and a 4GHz frequency, yet it doesn't need a higher than 125w TDP? The FX-8350 is looking like a pretty darned good step-up over the FX-8120 and FX-8150.
