Piledriver Models

In the table below, you can see all the AMD FX models released based on the “Piledriver” microarchitecture. As previously explained, all CPUs have two “Turbo” clocks available. All models support the highest HyperTransport 3.0 speeds of 2,400 MHz (9.6 GB/s) and 2,600 MHz (10.4 GB/s), which are not available on socket AM3 processors. All models have an unlocked clock multiplier, allowing you to overclock the CPU by changing this parameter.

MC stands for “Memory Controller.” This clock is also known as “North Bridge Clock” or simply “NB Clock.”

TDP stands for Thermal Design Power and indicates the CPU maximum thermal dissipation, i.e., the CPU cooler must be able to dissipate at least this amount of heat.
