The AMD Vishera come in response to lower than expected performance of the Bulldozer, in some sections as single-thread and cache.

The variant will remain a development of 32 nm, with eight processor cores and 16 Mbytes of native cache, but with architectural enhancements, new instructions and higher clock frequency: 4 GHz base expanded to 4.2 GHz using TurboCore and further by overclocking techniques, facilitated by the multiplier unlocked. TDP consumption of FX-8350 would fall, 125 watts.
