AMD FX 8320

Report a correction
Much more l2 cache 8 MB vs 0.25 MB 32x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 130 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much higher clock speed 3.5 GHz vs 1.47 GHz Around 2.5x higher clock speed
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
More cores 8 vs 1 7 more cores; run more applications at once
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.56 GHz vs 2.11 GHz Around 2.2x better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Much better PassMark score 8,183 vs 268 More than 30.5x better PassMark score
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 4x more l2 cache per core
Significantly better PassMark (Single core) score 1,402 vs 419 More than 3.2x better PassMark (Single core) score
More threads 8 vs 1 7 more threads
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.75 GHz vs 1.47 GHz Around 3.2x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
