AMD FX-8120 - Zambezi 3.1GHz 8-Core Processor

AMD FX-8120 is Zambezi with 8-core processor, 3.1GHz of speed and comes with new AM3+ socket platform. As one of premium Bulldozer processors, AMD FX-8120 has been born with new eight cores technology which it very useful for playing games which required more processor cores, for 3D rendering or also for working with multtask mode.

AMD FX 8120 specs : 8 cores processors, 3.1GHZ up to 4.0 GHz with Turbo Boost technology, 8MB of L2 cache, 8MB L3 cache, suitable for socket AM3+ motherboard, max TDP allowed : 125W.

AMD FX processors
The difference between AMD FX-8120 and another AMF FX series can we see on the total of L2 cache, TDP and also clock speeds. Unfortunately, if I compared with another Intel Sandy Bridge processors (in the same class and prices), AMD FX series can't (not yet) beat it. Well we will see the 8 core advantages soon if there any programs or software which it need more core, but I believe that AMD has prepared to do it. Basically, if you need more core processors, you can try the AMD FX-8120 processor, it's not bad and still great, you can playing or do everything with AMD FX-8120, don't forget the AMD processors is very easy to overclock, so you can do it if you need more performance from AMD FX-8120.
