Average Bench: 66.2% (387th of 1305)

Based on 6,950 user benchmarks.  Device: 178BFBFF00600F20 Model: AMD FX(tm)-9370 Eight-Core Processor

The FX-9370 is the slightly lower clocked (4.4 GHz) version of AMD's flagship FX-9 range of desktop processors. The FX-9590 comes clocked at 4.7 GHz with a staggering turbo clock of 5 GHz. Comparing the 9370 and 9590 versions shows that there is only 3% between the two processors at stock clocks but when overclocked they both have an identical performance profile. Given that the 9590 costs nearly 25% more the 9370 should be the obvious choice. Both of these processors have superb multi-core performance but they both lag Intel when it comes to single and dual-core workloads. Until AMD can improve single core performance they will continue to struggle in the high end PC market. [Mar '14 CPUPro]

You can undervolt it alot at 4.4ghz no turbo. Mine ran stable 4.8ghz on all cores without any voltage increase. Didn't try any higher.
