The FX-8370E pulls down AMD's desktop-CPU power consumption, yet it's almost as speedy as 125-watt CPUs like the FX-8370. It's our favorite from AMD's fall-2014 FX refresh. Read...

When I started testing AMD's FX-8370E I had the horrible suspicion that it might be faulty as the clock speed started at 3.3GHz and didn't seem to increase with Turbo. This meant the performance was significantly lower than the 4.0GHz/4.2GHz FX-8350 –...

AMD has long controlled the value portion of the sub-$200 processor market. Though the FX series is the latest iteration, the Phenom and Phenom-II processors before it also held down an excellent price to performance ratio, demonstrating the...

That the fastest processors are currently made by Intel is not really a secret, but what is the best choice when you want to spend up to £ 50, £100 or £150? To answer that question we conducted a megatest of 57 current AMD and Intel CPUs. From two...

The AMD FX-8370E processor emphasizes efficiency, with low power consumption and reasonable...

Underclocking is not dead it seems, and with a clever, wide turbo which allows the FX-8370e to remain within its TDP, there is only a small performance drop relative to the FX-3850, which can consume a fair bit more power. Though, due to the 95W TDP...

Does the new FX-8370E represent a step forward for AMD's FX line of processors? Giving a clear answer is somewhat of a challenge. Our test sample performs about the same as its predecessors at similar clock rates, but draws less power doing so. However,...

The 32nm “Vishera” processors from AMD have been around for a long-while; since October 2012 to be exact. Vishera was AMD's Zambezi successor with Vishera being based on the Piledriver architecture and Zambezi on Bulldozer. Since the first release of...

For a long time it seemed like AMD was going to completely focus on their APU range, leaving the high end FX CPUs as they were. There was a bit of a refresh in 2013 as they quietly added a couple of models to the top end of the product stack but not...

AMD has extended the reach of its eight-core FX line of premium processors by introducing its first efficiency-optimised, 95W parts. The FX-8370E and FX-8320E reduce maximum wattage by lowering the all-core speed when compared to the traditional FX...

At the end of the day, AMD needs to upgrade the architecture (and the chipset). At some point the architectures of the FX and APU line either need to diverge their separate ways, or there needs to be a hard earned reconciliation attempt to find a node and a manufacturing process suitable for both low power graphics cores and high frequency processor cores.

Let's wrap things up with one of our famous price vs. performance scatter plots. We used AMD's suggested e-tail prices for the FX series and Newegg prices for the rest. On the performance front, we used geometric mean of results from our full test...

It has been more than a year since AMD launched its last major update to the top end FX processor line -- the FX-9590. The company has been quiet in the face of Intel's high-end launches, but today AMD is shipping a new CPU that's aimed at multi-core...

After getting a chance to see what AMD's top tier processors, the FX-9370 and FX-9590 , were capable of delivering performance-wise, it's clear that the top end of the spectrum is the 5GHz plateau when we are talking about Vishera based CPUs. Today, AMD...

We review the AMD FX 8370 and 8370E processor today. The CPUs tested today have eight physical CPU cores, the fastest SKU will have a base clock of 4000 MHz, and can Turbo towards 4300. And that makes the FX series a multi-threaded high frequency...

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...

AMD is refreshing their FX lineup in the waning days of Summer!Let me explain the situation from my point of view. The FX lineup for AM3+ has not done a whole lot since the initial release of the Piledriver based FX-8350 and family (Vishera). Piledriver...

A primero de mes AMD presentó su nueva gama de procesadores para el socket AM3: FX8320E, FX8370, FX8370E y FX9590 de 8 núcleos reajustando precio, niveles de consumo y ampliando el abanico de posibilidad para el socket AM3+. En esta ocasión hemos tenido...

O "novo" processador FX-8370E da AMD chega ao mercado trazendo como maior atrativo sobre as demais versões da linha FX seu TDP, consideravelmente abaixo dos demais. Para lançar o processador com esse TDP, 95W (ao contrário de 125W da versão normal), a...

International Review By Chip.de on 57

Der neue Prozessor AMD FX-8370E für den Sockel AM3+ kann im Test trotz acht Prozessorkernen nicht überzeugen. Selbst aus Preis-Leistungs-Sicht, eigentlich stets AMDs Stärke, spricht nichts für diesen FX. Aufgrund der TDP-Reduktion auf 95 Watt verliert...
