AMD Turbo CORE Technology
The AMD FX Desktop Processor come equipped with AMD Turbo CORE Technology. AMD Turbo CORE Technology is a performance boosting technology that helps increase performance on the applications that need it the most.
New Instruction Capabilities
AVX (Advanced Vector Extensions) increase parallelism tailored for scientific and 3D applications that use heavy floating point calculations. FMA4 and XOP - Floating Point Vector Multiply - Accumulate improves throughput and performance on many vector functions (integer and floating point). AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) noticeably increases performance on the latest encryption applications like TrueCrypt and benchmarks like PCMark.
New AMD Balanced Smart Cache
Shared L3 cache (up to 8MB), improved scheduling and pre-fetch capabilities, 64-ways (16-ways/sub-cache), increased data queue sizes, and coherency for eight-cores. .
One 16-bit link at up to 5600MTps, up to 8.0GBps HyperTransport I/O bandwidth, up to 16GBps in HyperTransport Generation 3.0 mode, and up to 37GBps total delivered processor-to-system bandwidth (HyperTransport bus + memory bus). Benefit: Quick access times to system I/O for better performance.
Integrated DRAM Controller with AMD Memory Optimizer Technology
A high-bandwidth, low-latency integrated memory controller, supports up to DDR3-1866, supports new low voltage memories of 1.35V and 1.2V, up to 29.9GBps memory bandwidth for DDR3, new pre-fetcher improvements, and direct communications to each core in the dual-core module (APIC registers in each core). Benefit: Optimized memory controller to feed more cores.
