Oh god...I haven't been on the forums in a looong while; hope all you good people are doing okay in 2014 thus far.
Anywho, I've finally made the leap into the AM3+ / FX bandwagon, and grabbed a FX-8350. Simply put, I'm just wondering if the two Windows patches are still needed for the Vishera / "Piledriver" CPUs.
I recall the hotfixes were released during the time of the "Bulldozers," and I'm not sure if the issues related to the patches (Windows scheduling and Core parking) still need to be installed manually, or it has been resolved with the Visheras / Windows Update.
Just so you know, I'm doing bechmarks....ehh...a little personal review and comparison between the FX-8350 and Phenom II X6 1090T. It's still in progress...but have a look if you're interested.
Thank you in advance!!
