AMD FX Vishera processors are going to be around for a while. For a matter of fact, they’re going to be introduced with 2 newer chipsets with bumped clock speed and higher-than-FX 8350 TDP of 220 W.

AMD plans to stick with piledriver architecture throughout 2013, so AMD 990FX and 970 chipsets are going to be around.

The last time when I’ve reviewed the 990FX motherboards was with AMD 965 BE. But thanks to few good friends who have given a chip, the Asus Sabertooth 990FX 2.0 will be tested with FX-8350 and compared with the Crosshair V Formula-Z.
