AMD releases one more FX processor

A Russian online hardware store has listed a new AMD FX processor – the FX-4330. The new chip has not been officially announced by AMD but there’s no reason to believe that the FX-4330 is fake. In fact the new FX processor might be the promised update to the AM3+ platform, which hasn’t received any new products in quite some time.

The new FX-4330 features two computational modules with a total of four integer execution cores and two integrated floating point units. According to the information on the Russian web site the chip runs at 4 GHz and carries the FD4330WMW4KHK part number. There’s no information on the Turbo core speed but we do know that the FX-4330 is a 95W TDP chip and has 8 MB of L3 cache, which is a nice bump from the FX-4300, which has just 4 MB of L3 cache. The FX-4330 is also a 32 nm part and sports the Vishera core, which was released a few years ago. And as expected the new AMD processor is compatible with AM3+ based motherboards although a BIOS update might be needed in order for the motherboard to recognize the processor correctly.

In Russia the FX-4330 sells for 5100 rubles, which is around USD 89.
