AMD ''Vishera'' FX-Series CPU Pricing Leaked

AMD is hoping the upcoming FX "Vishera" second-generation Bulldozer multi-core CPUs are the success that many users hoped for with the original Bulldozer. With Steamroller looming around the corner, the FX "Vishera" CPUs are expected to release in October in four models.

The pricing listed by BLT (if accurate) has the flagship FX-8350 coming in at $253.00. Based on the specs revealed in late August, FX-8350 is listed with a 4.00 GHz clock speed (4.20 GHz TurboCore speed), eight-cores, 16 MB of total cache and TDP of 125W. The FX-8320 features 3.50 GHz clock speed, eight-cores, 16 MB of total cache and TDP of 125W. The FX-8320 is priced at $242.05.

The FX-4300 features 3.80 GHz clock speed, four-cores, 8 MB of total cache, TDP of 95W, with an expected price of $131.62. None of the FX processors are expected to support integrated GPU, but will support a full list of "Piledriver" features.

An earlier version of this story erroneously listed certain features of Piledriver. To clarify, AMD Perfect Picture HD, AMD Steady Video 2.0 are graphics features and Wireless Display is for notebooks.

    memadmaxHow about some benchmarks instead?Because this is an Ad site, they do not do benchmarks here
    /sarcasm

    you dunce, they will have benchmarks as soon as the NDA lifts, or they have a product to test! You think they will let one of the potentially largest game changing CPUs go un-benched?

    An i7 3750 has 4 cores at 3.5 plus turbo and and HT, and it only draws 77 watts. Of course it costs a bit more around 350 vs 250. I have been an AMD guys since I got my amd-k6 233mhz 15 years ago so I am hoping they can pull a rabit out of thier hat.

Intel has had 130W for its extreme processors. Sandy Bridge had 95W and Ivy Bridge 77W so. It's quite the difference between the two manufactures.

    If that 8350 has anywhere near that 20% increase promised, and is still a 125w tdp, an upgrade will be a no brainer. I hope AMD doesn't dissapoint this time.
