AMD FX-8350 (Vishera) 8-Core Processor Review

This is not a new processor BUT it’s my favorite AMD FX range processor to date and I thought it deserves a highlight.

Thermal Performance

The FX-8350 only registered 56c on load while the newer generation ones like FX-9590 peaked at 73c on load even with the CM Seidon 120M.


Overclocking was a breeze, pushing it to 4.4Ghz

The Verdict

The 125w octa-core processor retails at around RM 680, one of the best deal you can get from AMD’s FX range of processor.

With a little overclocking, you cam get it to perform very closely to the FX-9590 processor that is retailing at nearly RM 1300.
