A screenshot of what’s supposed to be an AMD Piledriver FX-8300 Vishera engineering sample has apparently surfaced on the Internet. The screenshot depicts information about a processor throttling down to 1404 MHz and only using 0.948 V under these conditions.
The picture was reportedly
posted on the Coolaler forums and, considering the TDP listed, it can only describe the features of an FX-8350 or a FX-8320 processor, as these are the only Piledriver FX parts that have 125-watt TDP.
This means that AMD
is almost ready with the processor, and only testing and verification need to be completed. There is also the possibility that this is a simple fake.
Unfortunately, the CPU-Z screenshot is all that has been made available to the eyes of the public, so we will likely have to wait some more for test results.
