AMD Vishera FX-8350 Review
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 12:12A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overclocking the FX-8350 was as easy as overclocking gets. I chose the Ultra High setting in the BIOS for the Load Line Control of the Gigabyte UD7, turned off Turbo Core and all energy management features (C1, Cool `N` Quiet, C6 support etc), and I simply kept raising the unlocked multiplier of the FX-8350 with intermittent stress testing and voltage changes. It is apparent that CPUID needs an update for the Vishera line as the voltage did not match the BIOS readings. I ended up at 5200MHz at 1.520. Temperatures stayed in check throughout never getting above 65 C according to HW monitor. For those of you who are not comfortable in the BIOS or would like to try out setting before committing to them, AMD has a brand new AOD version 4.2.3 for you to take advantage of or you can simply let AMD Turbo Core do it for you."

AMD FX-8350 Unlocked Vishera Octal Core CPU Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 12:05A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 2nd generation AMD FX processors utilize the new Piledriver cores introduced first on the Trinity APUs, improving upon the previous generation Bulldozer design. The 4GHz FX-8350 sits at the top of this new lineup and is fully compatible with 900-series AM3+ motherboards. The new Piledriver design is aimed to address the criticisms levied against Bulldozer and improve upon the original design. Similar to previous Bulldozer FX processors, the 2nd generation FX lineup will be completely overclocker friendly with unlocked multipliers. While this is all good news, the most exciting part about the new Vishera FX processors is their price. The top of the line FX-8350 for example has an introductory price of just $195, making it very competitive compared to previous generation FX processors as well as the competition`s more expensive processor offerings."

AMD FX-8350 Vishera Desktop Processor @ Benchmark Reviews
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 12:05A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD introduced its new FX-series processors almost exactly a year ago, and AMD enthusiasts hoped these Zambezi CPUs, built on AMD`s new Bulldozer architecture, would provide real competition to Intel`s Sandy Bridge line. But although the FX-8150 had eight integer cores and was capable of high clock speeds, its high price and poor performance at the individual core level meant that it wasn`t very competitive with the equivalent Intel CPUs. Now we have the AMD FX-8350 CPU, code-named Vishera and based on the Piledriver architecture to test. Has AMD managed to reduce the performance deficit relative to Intel? Let`s find out."

Launch: AMD FX-8350 Processor Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 12:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Launch: AMD FX-8350 Processor Review @ HardwareHeaven.com Now a year on from the FX-8150 launch AMD are back with a revision of their performance orientated CPUs. The new FX-8350 revises the cores used and bumps up the speed for a product which again is designed to maximise price and performance for those looking to spend about $199 on a chip. We will be taking a look at the new chip in a selection of real world and synthetic tests against the FX-8150 and i5-3570K along with a look at the benefits of AMDs recently launched 12.11 beta driver which promises much improved 7000 series performance."

AMD FX 8350 processor Review
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 12:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,In this article we test and review the new AMD FX 8350 processor. AMD unleashes PileDriver cores on the new Vishera a codenamed architecture. The CPU tested today has eight physical CPU cores, it will have a base clock of 4000 MHz, and can Turbo towards 4200 MHz. And that makes the FX series a multi-threaded high frequency monster."

AMD FX-8350 and FX-6300 Processor Review: Vishera Breaks Cover
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 12:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So what do we actually get with this release? Well, it is a bittersweet release for AMD. The pricing on these parts is not only competitive, it undercuts Intel by a significant amount across the board. The 8350 is very competitive with the 3570K, and it can be had for $30 less. The 6300 will walk all over the Intel products that exist at the $132 price point, and in fact is more competitive in terms of performance with the $185 Intel products. Again, we get a nice $50 discount for essentially the same performance. In these cases though, expect the AMD CPU to consume more power. Would it be enough to make one nervous about energy bills? Not really."

FX-8350 CPU Review; AMDs Vishera Arrives @ Hardware Canucks
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 12:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD`s new FX-8350 is the new kid on the processor block but it, along with the other Vishera CPUs, house technology we`ve seen before. Like Trinity, this eight core processor uses the revised Piledriver architecture which is supposed to grant it substantial performance improvements over Bulldozer. But will it be enough to overcome, let alone compete with Intel`s offerings?"

FX-8350 vs. Core i5-3470 CPU Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 12:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, AMD is releasing its second-generation of FX CPUs, dubbed Vishera. The FX-8350 is currently the highest-end model available, running at 4 GHz and costing USD 195. Let`s see how it fares against its main competitor, the Core i5-3470 (3.2 GHz, USD 200). We also included in our comparison the AMD CPU that used to be the highest-end model, the FX-8150 (3.6 GHz, USD 190 currently, USD 280 at its release), and what was then its main competitor, the Core i5-2500K (3.3 GHz, USD 220). For curiosity sake, we also added to the comparison the Phenom II X6 1100T (3.3 GHz, USD 190 when it was sold), which used to be AMD`s fastest CPU before the release of the FX family."

Posted by: STAFF
Without much fanfare, AMD is launching yet another new product, this time the Piledriver-based AM3+ CPUs. Ready as a drop-in replacement for current 9-series AMD motherboards, the FX-8350 not only offers a bit of a surprise in performance, but also a suprise that your wallet will like too!"

Transcend SSD320 256GB SSD Review

Posted by: STAFF
Today Chris follows up the Transcend SSD720 review with the mainstream model, the SSD320. The SSD320 pairs asynchronous flash with the same SandForce controller found in the flagship 720 model. This combination reduces the total cost, but does it also significantly reduce performance?"

Today we have another headset to put through the ringer, but not a gaming headset. We are switching it up a little here and giving you some variety.

2x Dell XPS 15 review: Core i7 or Core i5?
     Mon, Oct 22 2012 | 5:11P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Dell XPS 15s are deluxe laptops that look great. This is true for both models we tested, but we definitely prefer the version with Core i7 and GT 640M over the one with Core i5 and GT 630M. The i7 version costs more of course, but it's worth the extra money. The processor is quite a bit faster, and you can actually play games with that graphics card.

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
