AMD rolled out the FX-4130, a new Piledriver-based quad-core processor that features a 3.8GHz base clock and 3.9GHz Turbo mode. The Socket AM3+ chip offers 4MB L2 cache (1MB per core), 4MB L3 cache, and a 125W TDP.

Priced at $101, the FX-4130 promises 3-9 percent more performance than the FX-4100, despite the reduced amount of cache memory. The slide below reveals the power draw of the two chips is quite similar, the FX-4130 uses a tiny bit less in idle mode but a bit more in load.
