FX-8370 is a high-end CPU based on the 32nm Piledriver architecture.
It offers 8 Physical Cores (8 Logical), initially clocked at 4.1GHz, which may go up to 4.3GHz and 8MB of L3 Cache.
Among its many features, Turbo Core and Virtualization are activated and the clock multiplier is unlocked, meaning it can be overclocked easily.
The processor DOES NOT integrated any graphics. and has a rated board TDP of 125W.
Benchmarks indicate its performance is only around 4% better than previous AMD FX-8350 and so powerful Core i5 Processors are still faster.
should i upgrade my cpu to this 8370?
I have a MSI 760GM-P34 (FX) should i upgrade to a 8370 or a 9590 with new water cooler??
Would this be good upgrade for my rig? Seriously considering to buy this one, due to the price/performance. OC ready of course. Or should i change mobo and goto i7 instead?
Which i5 processors are faster? Can u name them please.
Update: This Processor is now correctly ranked!
65% better then mine, is a good procent to make an upgrade for the CPU ? Or wait the next CPU family for the AM3+, if there is gone be one.. Thx.
Why is there an AMD A series picture there? And in the description it says that its TDP will be 95W but it is actually 125W
