AMD Launches the FX-4350 and FX-6350 Piledriver CPUs

AMD has refreshed its lineup of FX processors with the launch of the FX-4350 and FX-6350, which are both based on the “Piledriver” architecture, feature an AM3+ socket, and support the “latest instructions including AVX and FMA3.”

The new CPUs can essentially be viewed as faster and less energy-efficient versions of their predecessors since both the FX-4350 and FX-6350 feature a 400 MHz increase in base clock and 30 W higher TDP than the FX-4300 and FX-6300, respectively.

A summary of the new processors' specifications and their respective retail prices are tabulated below.

  • Wonder how the FX-4350 performs against the 965 BE.
    Also wonder when it will be that some guy complains about mistaking an HD 4350 for an FX 4350.

  • Is this worth it? How much power would the two previous editions use when overclocked to the same amout as these new ones?
    Will this make the 4350 viable or will people still say "nuuuu fx 6300 nao"?
