AMD 8350 is a 4.0GHz eight-core

Written by Fuad Abazovic



4.2 GHz with Turbo, 125W


Last week we managed to get some information about AMD’s upcoming FX 8350 and you can check it out here.

However, today we learned that AMD will push this CPU from Q3 to early Q4 2012 as now it claims that it can launch this processor in late October. AMD FX 8350 is an eight-core with 16MB cache, Vishera based 32nm core with 4.0GHz default clock and ability to jump to 4.2GHz with turbo core automatic overclocking.

This is an impressive frequency jump as the AMD FX 8150 works at 3.6GHz default and with turbo gets to 4.2GHz. The FX 8350 is supposed to replace the 8150 as AMD’s flagship processor.

According to current schedule production ready samples are expected in roughly a month (early August). Mass production starts in early August, probably days after they finalize the clocks and give it a green light for mass production but the launch is pushed for late October 2012.

Originally it was supposed to launch in Q3 2012. Just to refresh your memory, Vishera supports DDR3 1866, comes with AMD turbo core automatic overclocking, supports AMD AM3+ motherboards and is manufactured on 32nm SOI in Dresden, AMD’s old fab that now belongs to Globalfoundries.
