Internal Graphics

Integrating a graphics core into the processor complements its functionality, but not all manufacturers (AMD or Intel) integrate iGPU into their CPUs. Even if the processor has an integrated graphics card, its power is hardly enough for modern games, so these features do not affect the overall performance of the processor. If AMD FX-8140 supports an integrated graphics core, you can see its specifications below.

Encryption

A specialized processor extension, AES-NI encryption system, was first introduced by Intel in 2008. This system is designed to handle data encryption for data stored in RAM and on hard drives. Check if your AMD FX-8140 processor supports this encryption method.

  • AES-NI
    Yes
Thermal Management

Thermal management is an essential aspect to consider when it comes to CPU performance. Overheating may damage the processor, while optimal temperature levels can enhance its performance. AMD FX-8140 processors are equipped with thermal monitoring technologies to ensure stable system operation, prevent overheating, and automatically adjust power consumption to maintain the best balance of performance and power usage.

  • TDP (PL1)
    95 W
Technical details

To gain a comprehensive understanding of the AMD FX-8140 processor, it's important to examine several key factors. Firstly, take note of the supported ISA (Instruction Set Architecture) instructions, as this will determine the processor's capabilities and compatibility with certain software. Secondly, make sure to check the compatibility with motherboards, as some processors may only work with certain types of motherboards. Thirdly, pay attention to the manufacturing process technology, as this can greatly impact the processor's performance and efficiency. Finally, it's crucial to consider the size of the L2 and L3 cache, as the larger the cache size, the faster the data can be processed and retrieved.
