AMD today unleashed the AMD FX family of CPUs, delivering a fully unlocked and customisable experience for desktop PC users.
The AMD FX series of desktop CPUs includes the first-ever eight-core desktop processor, enabling extreme multi-display gaming, mega-tasking and HD content creation for PC and digital enthusiasts – all for less than $245.
This marks the first retail availability of processors that use AMD’s new multi-core architecture, which is included in AMD’s upcoming server CPU and the next-generation of AMD Accelerated Processing Units.
“AMD FX CPUs are back with a vengeance, as validated by the recent feat of setting a Guinness World Records title for ‘Highest Frequency of a Computer Processor,’” said Chris Cloran, corporate vice president and general manager, Client Group at AMD.
“While overclockers will certainly enjoy the frequencies the AMD FX processors can achieve, PC enthusiasts and HD media aficionados will appreciate the remarkable experience that AMD FX processors can provide as part of a balanced, affordable desktop system.”
