It really was a tremendous product for AMD in Still as you mentioned the chance is next to none since their production is in full swing with the Bulldozer and soon to be Piledriver. We also provide an extensive Windows 7 tutorial section that covers a wide range of gr and tricks. Judging by benchmarks by everyone, the Phenom architecture looks to be much more promising than what Bulldozer has to provide, and possibly more flexible. Also a die shrink would provide improved thermals, possibly more OC headroom, ect. I may still make the the proc, but use it as a learning experience for OCing something I’ve never done. Is the beefier CPU cooler sufficient or should I go with an after market cooler?

The one I saw will represent the desktop AK model. Is Topre Realforce the Realthing? It was dead simple for me to go to 4.

AMD FX-6200 CPU Review: A Small Bulldozer Refresh

Bulldozer was on the horizon and it promised performance a step above what Intel could offer. Still, there was fd that these products could more than hold its own against the i3 and i5 in the same price range.

Euler 3D and 7-Zip Results: I have not heard of Vishera, is that another entirely new architecture or based off Bulldozer or Piledriver? We also provide an extensive Windows 7 tutorial section that covers a wide range of gr and tricks. I agree with you, AMD needs support and people buying their products. Success of any overclock is not guaranteed and xf choice of motherboard will also directly affect the ability of the chip to ffx higher speeds.


I had originally planned on making a budget computer with this proc at the center of it.

Probably not really worth the effort since Bulldozer is in full production, and is finally yielding good enough to meet demand. Rooting for the underdog means you balance your expectations while understanding that they are an underdog and if they can get a decent part out then you congratulate them for keeping the big dog’s nose to the grindstone.

OEMs can’t get enough of them! So to conclude my little analysis I would say that even using manual routing the CPU would still have flopped due to starved cores, undersized schedulers and FPU, these are all design decisions.

AMD FX CPU Review: A Small Bulldozer Refresh | PC Perspective

The and are six cores like the top phenom II’s but they were not made to replace them and debuted at much lower cost that the Phenom six cores. Thanks Ryan for doing this i bet it wasn’t that easy to fs because i don’t thank amd sent these out for people to review.

I want AMD to succeed. It seems the long integer pipe and the high clocks aren’t the performance hindrance one may have thought P4 style. This page was last reviewed on January 13, 6200 ensure gf fxa drivers are up-to-date. So, my point was not to be mean to AMD, or unjustly punish them. April 8, I have no clue on that particular timeline The Intel IGP will be used if the video card fc

Finally, the only time the FX really overcomes the 62200a is when overclocked to 4. I just can’t see how an under-performing FPU can be blamed on automatic routing tools unless their internal CPU simulators are rubbish which can be blamed on being under-staffed. At first glance that does seem unappealing. On the positive side at least we hope it will be positiveTrinity will be displayed to journalists next week, and I would imagine though I don’t know the timeline that we will see initial reviews within a month or so.


Please refer to the release gf fxa for more information on features, driver fixes, and known issues. Hey Josh, great review. Is the beefier CPU cooler sufficient or should I go with an after market cooler?

AMD FX-6200 Six-Core

Not because I am somehow in love with the company, but rather I feel we need a decent company that can stand mostly toe to toe with Intel. They may have reached 4GHz 95W on all cores, but performance per clock couldn’t have been much different. Yeah, I wonder what it would take to redo the Phenom IIs at 32 nm.

66200a know we all want AMD to really outperform Intel, but then we can’t go badmouthing their products when they don’t excel, but “merely” deliver. While this is not the latest version, it is still a very decent application for Geforce gt playback.
