Average Bench: 51.3% (267th of 1059)

Based on 42,297 user benchmarks.  Device: 178BFBFF00600F20 Model: AMD FX(tm)-8320 Eight-Core Processor

The AMD FX-8320 has the same architecture and specs as the FX-8350, the only difference being the base/turbo clocks of 3.5/4.0 GHz for the 8320 vs 4.0/4.2 GHz for the 8350. Comparing the two models shows that the 8320 lags the 8350 at stock speeds by around 10% but broadly matches it when both processors are overclocked. This combined with the 8320's considerably lower price tag makes the 8320 the better value proposition. In terms of outright performance, as with all AMD CPUs, the FX series have very strong multi-core performance but lag Intel considerably in terms of single and dual-core throughput. [Mar '14 CPUPro]

Even in the beginning of 2018 the processor performs within a 50% usage for almost all games I have played. My processor is paired with an MSI gtx1080, most games perform over the benchmarks I'm finding online with almost no load in stutter. It could be better but I have found no reason to upgrade yet. With the price of the processor I definitely got my money out of it.


System runs very well. Not as fast as higher end Intel, but great value for all around CPU.—Dec '14

This is an outstanding processor for it's price. I have an i7-4770K at work and it doesn't lack anything compared to it. Both have 1TB Barracuda 7500 K RPM (same model) and while at work I have 8GB 1600MHz at home I have 16GB 1600MHz. Almost the same build. Awesome performance compared to the i7-4770K

Powerful, but surpassed now. Only get it if you can have it at a dead cheap price. Great OC potential.

easy oc and efficient. I over clocked it at 4.8ghz at min 1.3125v & max1.55v but seems to stick at 1.3125v temps hitting 60c-70c at 100% load but 45c-48c at idel i know a little hot but thats ok with a 4.8ghz oc. i got the 100% in the benchmark compared to other users with this cpu on here. overall i am happy. i apologize for the poor grammar from being lazy. lol
