    Default AMD FX-8370 & FX-8370E Processor Review

    * Introduction   We all know the woes AMD and their fans have been dealing with over the last few years so we will not be hashing that topic again. We will instead focus on the updated line for what they are, a place holder. They are designed to hold the interest of fans, budget shoppers and gamers until further notice. There have been no grand design changes that will suddenly put AMD on top of the performance heap. Instead, this is a product to cover those that have yet to make the switch from an older AM3 or AM3+ CPU or even a lesser CPU in the current AM3+ product stack. There is also a shift in how the FX series chips line up to the competition. We will move right into the overview and benchmarks that cover the new FX-8370 and FX-8370E 8 core CPUs.   Press Release   Introducing AMD FX Optimized for Power and Efficiency Multi-core processing is the future. Game engines are being designed to do more at a time; particle effects, physics calculations, light rays, and shadows are growing progressively more complex by the day. Large-scale computing now relies more on the overall throughput of parallelism than the singular speed of CPU cores. Today, AMD FX-Series CPUs return to push the boundaries of value to the high-performance desktop platform introducing the speed-optimized 125W AMD FX-8370 and power-optimized 95W AMD FX-8370E and AMD FX-8320E processors. Featuring the “Piledriver” x86 core architecture, all of our new FX solutions feature 8 native CPU cores for productivity at superior price points. Experience seamless multitasking and unleash the real capabilities of multi-threaded applications. Unlocked out of the box, AMD FX Processors have full potential to unleash additional performance via overclocking1. Paired with the latest AMD Radeon R9 graphics cards, AMD FX platforms will also allow you enable our revolutionary Mantle2 and TrueAudio3 technologies.

    Good review Bruce (Sandy). Thanks. Frankly, the only good thing in my opinion is the low price of processor and lower TDP (E version). The owners of FX 8350 have no needs to change.

    I'm glad to see these. At first, there was talk of ending the High end, to not having any FX cpu til 2016, to now having a refresh and competitive pricing. Better than not having anything until their new architecture hits the market.
    Second System: CPU - AMD FX-8350 / Mobo - AsRock 970 Extreme3 R2.0 / Video Card - XFX Radeon HD6870 / Memory - 8gb Gskill Sniper DDR3 1600 9-9-9-24 / Harddrive - Seagate Barracuda 250gb 7200 rpm x 3 Raid 0 / Power Supply - Seasonic X Gold 750w / Case - Sunbeam Transformer / CPU Cooler - Zalman CNPS9900 Max
