AMD FX 8320E 

Released September, 2014
  • 3.2 GHz
  • Octa core
  • Unlocked
5.8 Out of 10

That being said, performance of the CPU is still reminiscent of 2012 when the first FX-8000 CPUs were launched and the 32nm process node on which it is formed.

While single thread performance is behind, the overclocked FX-8320E storms ahead of our FX-9590 results.

AMD FX-8320E CPU Review: The Other 95W Vishera

by Ian Cutress |
www.anandtech.com
However, no matter which way the segment is sliced, there are relatively few new motherboards on the market.
Due to the construction of some of the early motherboards intended for AMD’s non­-IGP line, these early motherboards could only support 95W or 125W maximum, let alone the 220W of the FX­9590/9370 behemoths.
Next up, we have the FX-8320E which is an optimized FX-8320 with a core clock of 3.50 GHz, turbo clock of 4.00 GHz, an 8 MB L3 Cache and a 95W TDP.
AMD does have steamroller but they aren’t focusing it towards the high-end desktop market instead focusing it towards the APU market with their Kaveri APUs and Athlon processors.
