Average Bench: 52.2% (224th of 956)

Based on 22,778 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]

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.
