The FX-4350 and FX-6350 are slightly faster than comparable CPUs already in the lineup

Advanced Micro Devices has added two new SKUs to its FX family of Vishera -based high-end microprocessors. The chipmaker announced the launch of the quad-core FX 4350 and the hexa-core FX-6350 CPUs in a blog post Monday

The FX-4350 and the FX-6350 are essentially slightly more powerful variants of the existing FX-4300 and FX-6300, respectively. Needless to say, that they have much bigger power appetites as well.

Boasting a 4.3GHz maximum boost frequency, 4MB of L2 cache, 8MB of L3 cache and 125W TDP, the $122 FX-4350 is said to offer 10 percent better performance than the FX-4300. When it comes to the $132 FX-6350, it features a 4.2GHz maximum boost frequency, 6MB of L2 cache and 8MB of L3 cache. Just like the FX-4350, the FX-6350 has a TDP of 125W and is around 10 percent more powerful than the previous generation.

“Unrivaled. Unlocked. Unbelievable. These products might be new, but they are jam packed full of all the things you love about AMD FX processors,” the company said in a blog post. “Fully AM3+ compatible, both 4-core and 6-core offerings operate in your 900-series motherboard.”
