After AMD's announcement of their new Radeon R9 285 series of graphics cards, AMD announced that they will also be adding 3 new CPUs to their AM3+ FX line-up.

The CPUs AMD will be bringing to market are the FX-8370, the FX-8370E and the FX-8320E.

All the upcoming CPUs will be based on the 32 nm "Vishera" silicon, so these CPUs should be considered as a simply Piledriver refresh.

The FX-8370 is sn AMD eight-core socket AM3+ processor which will come along with a energy efficient variant the FX-8370E, both feature out of the box clock speeds of 4.10 GHz, with TurboCore frequencies of 4.30 GHz. The standard FX-8370 variant features 125W TDP, while the FX-8370E features 95W. The two will sell at the same price-points as the existing FX-8350 $189 US).

The AMD overclocking team stated that these new variants overclock better than their existing FX counterparts, but this needs to be verified by non-AMD staff.

Finally we have the FX-8320E which is in essence an optimized FX-8320 with a core clock of 3.50 GHz, turbo clock of 4.00 GHz, an 8 MB L3 Cache and a 95W TDP. This processor is priced at $139 US.

Now if a lot of the motherboard manufactures would refresh those old boards to try and keep up with Intel. Might make me swing over to AMD since I blew my Z77 motherboard. Especially if they move push out an AM3+ mini-ITX and the abysmal selection of Micro-ATX boards. Here is hoping AMD can finally bring some competition for a change.Quote

To be honest mate newer board won't help them perform well against Intel. This is a simple CPU refresh.

Without a new CPU architecture or chipset new motherboards are unlikely, the future of AMD is FM2+ or another new socket.Quote

I like how this architecture works, It is a nice step away from before. it just needs to work a little better on single cores.

I been thinking about if i was upgrading i would like to go amd, just mostly to be a bit different and to help a bit.Quote

TBH if I were to go AMD I'd wait for the Stemroller Athlon K, it will have stronger cores and generally most things don't need more than 4 cores.Quote

Pretty cool but is there any need really, all I want to see from AMD right now is a refined roadmap and what they have in store for future development.

I am glad however that we're not reporting on the AMD "Price slash" getting everyones hopes up, unlike other tech sites.. because they all fail to mention it's only a price cut for tray bought CPUs with a minimum order of 10 per tray. So not really any savings to be had unless your a e-tailer.Quote
