Unlock and load. Blow away the competition with the unrestrained power of an
AMD FX processor. Experience unmatched multitasking and pure core
performance with the industry’s first 32nm 8-core desktop processor. Get the
speed you crave with AMD Turbo CORE Technology to push your core frequencies
to the limit when you need it most. Go beyond the limits of maximum speed
with easy-to-use AMD OverDrive and AMD Catalyst Control Center software
suites*. But the best part of all? You’ll get all this impressive
performance at an unbelievable price. You’ll be asking yourself “what
competition?” in no time.
Combine an AMD FX CPU with an AMD 9-series
chipset motherboard and AMD Radeon HD 6000 series graphics cards to create
the AMD “Scorpius” platform. Get lost in the action with ultra-responsive
gameplay and insanely lifelike HD powered by VISION FX Technology from AMD.
Overtake your rivals with the raw power and superior performance of an
unlocked CPU*. Immerse yourself in an accelerated HD experience with AMD
Radeon GPU and Microsoft DirectX 11 capable graphics. *Note: AMD’s product
warranty does not cover damage caused by overclocking (even when
overclocking is enabled via AMD Overdrive software).
Unlocked AMD FX 8-Core Processor The industry’s first
and only native 8-core desktop processor delivers unmatched multitasking and
pure core performance with all-new “Bulldozer” architecture. New 32
nanometer die shrink was designed to reduce leakage for improved efficiency,
increased clock rate headroom and better thermals. Immerse yourself in the
most advanced 3D games. Achieve extreme mega-tasking with ease.
AMD Turbo CORE Technology The AMD FX Processors come
equipped with AMD Turbo CORE Technology, a performance boosting technology
that helps increase performance on the applications that need it the most.
New Instruction Capabilities – AVX, FMA4 and XOP, AES
Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) increase parallelism tailored for
scientific and 3D applications that use heavy floating point calculations.
Floating Point Vector Multiply-Accumulate improves throughput and
performance on many vector functions (integer and floating point). Advanced
Encryption Standard noticeably increases performance on the latest
encryption applications like TrueCrypt and benchmarks like PCMark.
AMD HyperTransport Technology HyperTransport
Technology (HT or HTT) is a high-speed, low latency, point-to-point link
which helps reduce the number of buses in a system thus reducing system
bottlenecks and enabling today's faster microprocessors to use system memory
more efficiently in high-end multiprocessor systems. With HTT, the AMD
FX-8120 enjoys up to 37GB/s total delivered processor-to-system bandwidth
(HyperTransport bus + memory bus).
Integrated DRAM Controller with AMD Memory Optimizer
Technology The AMD FX Processor features a high-bandwidth, low-latency
integrated memory controller that supports up to DDR3-1866 and new low
voltage memories of 1.35V and 1.2V and provides new Pre-Fetcher improvements
and direct communications to each core in Dual-Core module (APIC registers
in each core).
AMD Virtualization (AMD-V) Technology with IOMMU
Silicon feature-set enhancements designed to improve the performance,
reliability, and security of existing and future virtualization environments
by allowing virtualized applications with direct and rapid access to their
allocated memory. IOMMU is an extension to AMD64 architecture to support
address translation and access protection on DMA transfers. AMD-V with IOMMU
helps virtualization software to run more securely and efficiently enabling
a better experience when dealing with virtual systems.
