AMD FX 8320e 8 core CPU Review
AMD's AM3+ socket has been around for a fairly long time, but it has been a long time since anything new has came to it. This changed recently when AMD had given us refreshed lineup of their Piledriver FX processors. Some of these CPUs offer an increased clock speeds in comparison to older models, like the FX 8370, and other are part of AMD FX-8XXXe series, which are designed to consume less power and to produce less heat.
Today we are having a look at AMD's FX 8320e, but can AMD really deliver a significant power reduction without a significant drop in performance or a change in CPU architecture? Let's find out.
In simple terms the FX-8320e is almost identical to AMD's older FX-8320, but it has it's base clock speed reduced from 3.5GHz to 3.2GHz and a reduction in TDP from 125w to 95w. It will be interesting to see how much performance is lost compared to AMD's FX 8320.
