by Wolfgang Gruener |
www.tomshardware.com
Given its performance upgrade over the 8100 into the range of the 8350, as well as its power advantage over the 8350, AMD is likely to position the CPU as a premium product and the highest price among all FX processors.
However, the new FX-8300 will only be rated at a TDP of 95 watts, versus a TDP of 125 watts for all but one other 8-core FX processors.
