AMD FX 8320e Review

Introduction

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.

 

Technical Specifications

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.

I'll be honest, when I started this review I was not expecting much, but AMD have delivered a great product here.

The power draw results are very impressive, given that it is mostly changes in the microcode and the performance you get for the price is fantastic.Quote

I think the price and what you get is key here, especially when you look at what you get from an i3 for the same price....Quote

I just wish AMD could hang with the big boys again, as soon as they do it I'll build an AMD rig. I'd love to but I'm not really on the market for budget components as good as this may be for the price. :\Quote

Some new high-end gear from them would be nice need something sexy to slot into my PC-P50R. That case is a weird AMD anchor for me I should never have bought it!Quote
