|Model||Frequency||No. of Cores||Cache||TDP||Heat Sink||Technology|
|FX 4130||3.8 GHz||3.9 GHz||4||192 KB||4 MB||4 MB||125 W||HS 78||32nm SOI|
|FX 4100||3.6 GHz||3.8 GHz||4||192 KB||4 MB||8 MB||95 W||HS 65||32nm SOI|
AMD at first has launched its first generation FX-4100 processor based on Zambezi core for a cheaper price and created a great demand among users.
Later, it has replaced the above model with second generation Vishera processors, which was also launched for a decent price. For now, without creating more rumours, AMD has quietly launched its next new FX-4130 processor in OEM products.
One of the great advantages is that the price of the new chip will remain same but with faster clock in both standard and turbo mode.
A cool picture of processor has got revealed, which is highly helpful for judging the difference between new and previous generation processor.

When comparing both the processors, it is obvious that the older processor, FX 4100 has a TDP of 95 W, whereas AMD FX-4130 has TDP of 125W. Though it is shocking to hear that the new chip has more TDP than old chip, AMD revealed that the new chip will probably draw less power in idle mode, as it is integrated with more advanced features.
AMD has also claimed that it has offered better quality heat sink in FX-4130 for greater overclocking flexibility. So the truth is that the new chip is simply one generation ahead with exactly same price as older chip.
Specifications of AMD FX-4130 processor
According to KitGuru, the combination of AMD FX processor and high end graphics card have proved to be popular with system builders like Aria, OcUK and MESH.

- AMD FX-4130 has Turbo operating frequency of 3.9 GHz, whereas FX-4100 has 3.8GHz clock frequency
- AMD FX-4130 has lower L3 cache of 4MB, whereas FX-4100 has L3 cache of 8MB
- AMD FX-4130 has higher TDP of 125W, whereas FX-4100 has lower TDP of 95W.
Price of AMD FX-4130 processor
