It looks like Intel isn’t the only chip maker to be refreshing its processors this year. According to a new report, AMD will be launching a refreshed line-up of processors based on their x86 Piledriver architecture at the beginning of September, consisting of the FX-8370, FX-8370E and FX-8320E.
According to unconfirmed sources, AMD is trying to make its CPUs and APUs more competitive when compared to Intel’s Haswell Refresh and Devil’s Canyon designs. As well as the FX microprocessors, which are scheduled to release on 1st September, AMD is allegedly slashing prices on older FX models and will also launch a new budget chipset with USB 3.0 support.
