Average Bench: 49.9% (332nd of 1137)

Based on 57,640 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]

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
