This series of desktop CPUs consists of the first eight-core desktop processor, allowing extreme multi-display gaming, mega-tasking and HD content creation for PC and digital admirers.
All AMD FX CPUs deliver fully unlocked processor clock multipliers for smooth overclocking, making the way for users to enjoy higher CPU speeds and related performance gains. Simultaneously, these processors use AMD Turbo Core Technology to dynamically optimize performance across CPU cores enabling peak performance for heavy workloads.
At a small expense, users can 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 for an amazing gaming and HD entertainment experience.
As part of the “Scorpius” platform, AMD FX CPUs also run AMD CrossFireX technology, which allows the collaboration of multiple graphics cards in a PC for stunning visual activity and AMD Eyfinity technology support for super resolution on up to six monitors.
Chris Cloran, corporate vice president and general manager, Client Group at AMD stated that
“AMD FX CPUs are back with a vengeance, as validated by the recent feat of setting a Guinness World Records for ‘Highest Frequency of a Computer Processor’.”
This event signifies the first retail availability of processors that use AMD’s new multi-core architecture , that is included in AMD’s upcoming server CPU and the next-generation of AMD Accelerated Processing Units.
