How do you steal some thunder from Intel's Haswell-E launch? There are several options, and the one AMD went with was to slash prices on several 8-core FX-8000 and FX-9000 Series processors. In addition to rolling out some significant price cuts to half a dozen CPUs, AMD also introduced three new AM3+ FX chips -- they include the FX-8370, FX-8370E, and FX-8320E, all of which are also 8-core parts.
The FX-8370 is the only 125W chip out of the trio of new CPUs. It has a clockspeed of 4GHz (4.3GHz via Turbo), DDR3-1866 support, and costs $199. That's the same price as the FX-8370E, a 95W part with a 3.3GHz clockspeed (4.3GHz via Turbo) and DDR3-1866 memory support.
AMD's new FX-8320E is the least expensive of the bunch at $147. It's rated at 95W and has a 3.2GHz clockspeed (4GHz via Turbo) and DDR3-1866 memory support.
