AMD FX 8320e Review

Gaming Tests

Our Gaming tests show a tale of two halves, with the Sleeping Dogs and Tomb Raider results being almost identical for the Stock 8 Core Piledriver CPUs and the Quad core Steamroller CPUs, Hitman Absolution on the other hand shown that it simply loves the 8 cores provided by the AM3+ CPUs, especially when overclocked.

The sad fact is that most games are not made to use more than 4 CPU cores, so gains like seen in Hitman will be rare right now, but in the future with DirectX 12 and other low level APIs on the way multi-threaded gaming loads should become a much more common sight.

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
