We knew that AMD let visitors play with Trinity APUs a bit at its Fan Day convention, held in Austin, US on October 6, but it looks like the company had some next-generation FX processors there are well.
A user from HardForum, who claims that he got the flagship Vishera at AMD's Fan Day, has posted screenshots taken during benchmarking tests of the AMD FX-8350 8-core central processing unit.
With a clock speed of 4.0 / 4.2 GHz and 8 MB L3 cache, the 8-core chip has a TDP of 125W and 15% better efficiency compared to its predecessor, FX-8150.
The chip used in the test was made in the 29th week of 2012 and scored 1.06 Marks in CineBench R11.5 (stock speed) and 7.53 Marks (at 4.6 GHz).
The gallery below shows the scores in comparison to those of several Intel CPUs. There is a screenshot of the chip being analyzed in CPU-Z, but don't be fooled by the Zambezi label. The program hasn't been updated yet, which is why it doesn't correctly identify the processor as Vishera.
All tests were made with the 8-core chip cooled by the bundled All-In-One water-cooling module.
