AMD FD8320FRHKBOX FX-8320 FX-Series 8-Core Processor Review
AMD has won the hearts of people for long with its worth remembering products that have hit the markets. The FX-8320 was launched by AMD along with the AMD FX-8370E which are both lower-powered octo-core PC processors. These were specially launched keeping in mind the market of power conscious consumers.
The AMD FX-8320 is just another blessing that AMD has endured on its customers. With the Bulldozer process technology built in the good gaming processor, the device is capable of squeezing into a 95W TDP and this it can done by using a lower base clock as well as maintaining the Turbo clock simultaneously. Keeping all that in mind, the processor for games is noted to run at a standard of 3.3 GHz. Not just that, it has the capability of being run as fast as 4 GHz as and when needed. When the processor is running at 3.5 GHz, it has been duly noted that the clock speed hits somewhere around 300 MHz higher than usual. This is a fascinating point, as just for the loss of 300 MHz of CPU horsepower, you get to witness 30 Watts of less consumption of power.
Further, the FX chip has multi-threaded productivity with up to eight threads. This enables the quad module design processor for gamers to possess too much of processing power which is sheer value for the money that you are paying for this product. The sad part about the gaming CPU is that there is no scope for native support for both USB 3.0 and the PCIe 3.0. Because of this, the users will have to be reliable on the board manufacturers as only they can provide the solution to this by offering third part silicon to resolve the matter.
