Press release, October 13; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES [Thursday 13 October 2011]

AMD has launched the FX family of CPUs, delivering a fully unlocked and customizable experience for desktop PC users. The AMD FX series of desktop CPUs includes AMDs first eight-core desktop processor. This marks the first retail availability of processors that use AMD's new multi-core architecture (Bulldozer), which is included in AMD's upcoming server CPU (Interlagos) and the next-generation of AMD accelerated processing units (APUs).

All AMD FX CPUs offer completely unlocked processor clock multipliers for easier overclocking, paving the way for PC enthusiasts to enjoy higher CPU speeds and related performance gains.
