5.7 Out of 10

Builders considering the new AMD FX chips may choose the FX-8370E over its less efficient AMD counterparts, which offers similar overall performance with a lower power draw and fewer cooling concerns.
by PCMag (Oct, 2014)
Compared with desktop processors with standard efficiency, the FX-8370E has a lower thermal design power (TDP) wattage, just 95 watts, compared with the standard 125-watt AMD FX-8370 (the non-E model).

AMD FX-8370E CPU Review: Vishera Down to 95W, Price Cuts for FX

by Ian Cutress |
www.anandtech.com
In the past, only specific workloads seem to cause the low thread count/high frequencies to kick in, meaning that an abnormal workload will keep the frequency low.
Due to the construction of some of the early motherboards intended for AMD’s no-IGP line, these early motherboards could only support 95W or 125W maximum, let alone the 220W of the FX-9590/9370 behemoths.

AMD 2014 FX Refresh- FX-9590, FX-8370, and FX-8370e Review

by Josh Walrath |
www.pcper.com
The 8370e is faster than the 8350 at the low thread counts, but again as we approach 8 threads it starts to taper off and comes in dead last.
The Intel machine is only 4 watts lower, but it also has a fancier motherboard.
But before we move to the details, I should acknowledge first that the FX-9000 series which is based on the x86 Piledriver architecture that include the FX-9590 and FX-9370 processors are receiving a major price cut starting 1st September.
The FX-9590 will retail at $215 US (tray version) and $199 US for the FX-9370 (tray version).
