Default AMD Piledriver FX-8350 Preview

Not impressived at first part of preview, FX-8350 at 4GHz is only about 10% faster in multi-thread and around 5% in single thread apps than FX-8150 at 3.6GHz!

Let wait until second part of preview coming up later with power consumption and how good it overclock.

I doubt Piledriver FX going to be the last high end desktop CPU ever as Steamroller and Excavator will be coming to server and mainstream desktop APU only?
