Average Bench: 40.5% (397th of 1182)

Based on 21,834 user benchmarks.  Device: 178BFBFF00600F20 Model: AMD FX-8320E Eight-Core Processor

The FX-8320E is a Vishera eight core processor based on AMD’s Piledriver architecture. The ‘E’ in the FX-8320E denotes energy efficiency with the FX-8320E boasting a TDP of 95 Watts which is relatively low for FX processors. The FX-8320E was launched in September 2014 at the same time as the FX-8370E. Comparing the 8370E and 8320E shows that the performance profiles are similar with the 25% more expensive 8370E edging ahead, particularly on single core workloads. The 8370E is clocked slightly higher with base/turbo frequencies of 3.3/4.3 GHz versus the 8320E’s 3.2/4.0 GHz. Overall the 8320E scores a mediocre effective speed of 70. Whilst this is sufficient for the majority of desktop applications: web-surfing, word-processing and playing movies, better single-core performance is offered by any number of Intel processors. [Dec '14 CPUPro]
