Fair enough, but Skyrim could use it, that's for sure.

Multi-Thread Performance = YES


For this chip to make any sense it would have to do 5ghz at less than 1.4v, which is highly unlikely. Most fx-83XX chips require greater than 1.5v and water to hit 5ghz stable. These most be best binned chips in the history of AMD.

If it cost less than $300 and does 5ghz at less than 1.4v they have my money. I can do a lot of damage between 1.4-1.5v, 5.5ghz might be in reach of some lucky folks out there. I expect these things to be out in a few weeks.

Are there any Mobos that support 220 watt??

Almost no one here's asking the important question - is this real? I for one have a hard time believing the naming scheme presented. AMD has so far been really consistent with how they label their parts.

FX-[XYZ0]

where X = # cores; Y = generation label (1 = BD, 3 = PD); Z = performance level label (0, 2, 5)

If Vishera is coming out with higher clocked chips, the Y value shouldn't change e.g. 8-core "centurion" would be labeled something like FX-8390.

I would be really disappointed at AMD's marketing department if they screw up what seems to be a good start at sane numbering schemes.

60fps isn't enough, it's a stuttery mess, we have 144Hz monitors now. When you're trying to keep minimums from dropping below 144 or 120 then AMD's current design of lots of small cores with low IPC doesn't work out too well.

There's no way it would only use 220w. I just posted a screen of a 5Ghz 8350 system pulling 464w. [H] just posted numbers for the 4770k system @ 4.8Ghz...... 189w. Huge difference.

Uhhh... what? How is 60fps a "stuttery mess"?

Use a 120hz+ screen for a week and change it back to 60Hz and you will see. I have read about people that have started replacing hardware in their system looking for what was causing their system to start stuttering when it was a graphics driver that changed the refresh rate back to 60 on them and it just looked that bad after using 120.

Near the limits of what other chips of the same architecture can usually do, sure it can.

These are obviously high leakage parts binned for speed, so an enormous increase in power and heat should be expected.

Almost certainly just binned Vishera, yes.

The idea they would make a new chip, and release for something like this first, is laughable.

I wouldn't expect voltages this high. High leakage parts OC better with lower voltage, they just have huge current draw.

I would still expect higher stock VIDs than most FX-8350s though.

Actually, in many cases, it is.

More often than not, all of my fastest processors are near fully loaded 24/7, 365.

I'm heavily CPU limited in Planetside 2 with a 4.3GHz SB-E and even a 4.7GHz SB.

I'd be more CPU limited with a 5GHz Vishera.

Exactly the same as a 5GHz FX-8350.

High-end overclocking orient boards can handle well in excess of this.
