Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (AMD) displayed Vishera last month at IDF where The INQUIRER managed to snap a picture of the overclocked chip running at 5GHz. The Company has taken initiatives to its eight-core Vishera chip. The company is expecting to leapfrog its flop Bulldozer Zambezi chip.
Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (AMD)’s new processors continue the trend of socket AM3+, revealing that it is a downgrade for the users who used Zambezi processors.
The chip makers announced all four models with FX moniker. Vishera chip, a low end quad core FX-4300 processor clocked at 3.8 GHz up to 4.0 GHz in boost mode and has a 4MB Level3 cache.
The company has kept equivalence among its Vishera FX range, from exceptions of core count and total Level 3 cache. Therefore, AMD’s six-core FX-6300 still possesses the same 1MB of Level 2 cache but has a total Level 3 cache expandable to 8MB. It is clocked at 3.5 GHz with boosts up to 4.1 GHz.
The top two Vishera parts by AMD are FX-8320 and FX-8350 sporting two eight cores and 4mb level 3 cache. The only difference between them is their clock frequencies, the former at 3.5 GHz and the latter at 4.0 Ghz with boost up to 4.2 Ghz.
AMD’s decision to keep up with Socket AM3+ will be a drop in replacement for three year old chips, while some users gaining eight cores for the price of the i5 chip could be tempting.
