Average Bench: 61.9% (479th of 1316)

Based on 4,894 user benchmarks.  Device: 178BFBFF00600F20 Model: AMD FX-8370E Eight-Core Processor

The FX-8370E is an energy efficient Vishera eight core desktop processor based on AMD’s Piledriver architecture. It was launched in September 2014 and is the energy efficient version of the FX-8370 boasting a lower TDP of 95 Watts versus 125 Watts on the FX-8370. Comparing the 8370E and 8370 shows that the lower TDP comes at a cost: the 8370E scores a relatively lacklustre effective speed of 73 compared to the non-E version which scores 83. The lower score is consistent with the relative clock speeds: 3.3 GHz on the 8370E versus 4.0 GHz on the 8370. Priced the same as the 8370, there is a direct choice between being green or speedy. Or, if you don’t really need the above average multi-threaded performance that the 8370E offers, then you may be better off with the superb single-threaded performance from any number of Intel’s offerings. [Dec '14 CPUPro]

AMD are great at selling junk. They pee in the well with fake comments, glorified cheerleaders on youtube and paid magazine reviews. My POS PC still crashes randomly. Everybody needs to call the rats out instead of letting them get away with it.
