Hi,

I just want to know my cpu correct name. Just out of curiosity.

AIDA64 gives cpu alias as Visheira and CPU-Z gives me Zambezi.

And also there are related names, with this FX-8350, Bulldozer and Piledriver.

Zambezi was the first generation FX processor and it uses Bulldozer cores.

Vishera is the second generation FX processor and it uses Piledriver cores.

The names are often interchanged but Zambezi and Vishera are the specific CPU model names.

Building a reliable PC involves more than just assembling the parts. You need to be able to configure all of the BIOS settings appropriately. This can be quite involved and frustrating as it can require a lot of trial and error with stress testing. It is however often the only means to get a 100% reliable PC.

Not all software properly identifies a CPU model. When it's not sure of the CPU I.D. it usually reverts to a prior model of the series thus if it doesn't know your CPU is a Vishera - which the FX-8350 is, then it might show it as a Zambezi.

Usually the software is updated as new processors are released. Software included with mobos is usually outdated by the time the mobos ship because of the PC industry dynamics.
