The test system was built from scratch, a format of the hard drive was performed (NTFS) and then Windows 8.1 was installed. Following the completion of the installation, the video drivers were installed. All windows updates were then installed as were the latest builds of the benchmarking tools. Finally, the hard drives were de-fragmented (where appropriate). For each test, the video drivers were set to default quality/optimizations (unless otherwise stated).
Good Benchmarking Practice
Where possible, each benchmark was performed three times and the median result for each resolution/setting is shown in the tables that will follow. All applications had their latest patches applied and all hardware features the latest BIOS/Firmware.

AMD FX-8320e Review – Conclusion

With the FX-8320e AMD have managed to create a very well balanced CPU. It offers performance very close to the more expensive 8370e however does so at a lower price point and with a touch less heat/power use. The CPU performs best in tasks which fully take advantage of multi-core use with AMD also specifically stating they feel gaming on this processor with a 270 series card hits the great 1080p playable range. In our testing we went a little higher and overall the CPU performed well in gaming tasks so this seems a fair comment from them.

The board we tested with today was the MSI 970 Gaming which is a reasonably up to date board based around AMDs 970 chipset rather than the higher end 990FX. Given the CPU/GPU combination recommended by AMD, the 970 chipset is a decent match for the 8320e and there is little missing from the mainstream board for most consumers to concern themselves with. We still get 6 SATA ports, Crossfire compatibility (multi-GPU to improve performance) and support for reasonably spec’d DDR3. A few more USB 3.0 ports would always be appreciated but MSI do go with a good audio and network solution for this class of board, elevating it above the competition (Dual headphone amps, dedicated audio capacitors, shielded components, Killer NIC).

Of course, as we touched on earlier, one of the strengths of this CPU (and many of AMDs FX range) is that it is compatible with older motherboards. So if you are using an 890 Chipset board with a Phenom CPU you could find that this (after a BIOS update) just drops in and starts running. That can significantly increase the lifespan of any system based around one of those boards. So that mixed with the overall cost and performance balance of this CPU, wins it our recommended award.

    Cool CPU. I wouldn’t have expected that, but the music conversion test showed the shortcoming of this solution best: when things get tough, aggressive throttling occurs in order to keep the CPU within the thermal envelope. Which means that the user gets significantly less than the advertised speed. A test against a regular FX-8320, which nominally has the same CPU clocks, would have demonstrated that even more obviously.

  2. I have FX 8320e overclocked to 4.3 and only got up to 44C after running Prime95 for an hour. This is with a Zalman cnsp 9900 cooler. My intel i5-2500k hits 67C with the same setup. This is definitely a cool running processor. Fan speeds stay low making it a quiet rig as well.
