AMD Introduces Industry's First 8 Core CPU

Indianapolis, IN (PressExposure) October 14, 2011 -- Advanced Micro Devices has announced the first appearance of the world's first 8 core CPU for desktop PC's. The AMD FX line of CPU's boasts a new paradigm in multi-core CPU's with 8 cores.

Multitasking applications as well as 3D applications will greatly benefit from the new 8 core CPUs. AMD has also endowed this new FX line of microprocessors with its patented Turbo CORE Technology which targets less performing applications and allows the CPU to be pushed to its limits. They are also unlocked, making them able to be overclocked and making this line of CPU's probably the best gaming CPU's AMD has ever released. The new FX-8120 (at 3.10 GHz) and the FX-8150(at 3.30 GHz) both have a new 32 nanometer die shrink design to improve efficiency. The FX series CPUs are also endowed with new instruction capabilities, making them able to accelerate the new generation of applications such as AVX, AES, and FMA4. Not only will the gamers enjoy this new line of CPUs by AMD, but also video editors and 3D modeling designers. This is largely due to its "Bulldozer" architecture that allows for greater communication between cores.

AMD's FX CPUs also come in 6 core configurations. The Phenom II line of CPUs was the only 6 core CPU by AMD before they introduced the FX series. The FX-8120 is at this time being tested with multitasking applications as well as gaming applications. The FX-8120 is comparable to an Intel i5 CPU and if overclocked, it even rivals the i7 Extreme. Currently, both the AMD 8 core CPU's, the FX-8120 (at 3.10 GHz)and the FX-8150 (at 3.3 GHz) can be purchased from online vendors.For more information on AMD's new native 8 core CPU simply head on over to or to this report at
