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...

Which processor now offers the most bang of your buck varies per price segment. If you have a very small budget, in our opinion it is best to find an Intel Pentium G4560, which, given its higher availability, is less of a challenge than it was a few...

In the conclusion of this comparison, we can be a lot more firm than in the previous one. If you now have an AMD FX processor, you should consider upgrading to a newer CPU. In almost all benchmarks, you'll gain at least 50% performance, while some...

So I think most people will admit that AMD has had a lot of wins this year with all of the Ryzen launches. As I found out in our 1700v7700K coverage the 7700K was still a great performing CPU, especially when looking at gaming performance. But with...

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...

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,...

I would like to take this opportunity to thanks AMD for supplying the three FX processors and the motherboard for testing.The new AMD FX 8370 is far from ground breaking. That should not come as a surprise, given the modest 100 MHz increase in turbo...

As we noted above, one of the strengths of the AMD platform is its future proofing. In the case of the FX CPUs, many people who bought (as an example) the FX-8350 in 2012 will be able to upgrade to the 8370e or 9590 today after a simple BIOS flash. Of...

Since the bygone days of the GHz wars, energy efficiency is now a key part in any x86 CPU manufacturer handbook. When designing a CPU, parts can be engineered to either be all-out guns blazing on performance, or it can strike a balance between...
