Specs for upcoming FX-8300 chips leak out


— 3:23 PM on August 21, 2014

You know those three FX-8000 processors AMD is supposed to introduce on Labor Day? Well, we may now know their specs. Or at least, the folks over at X-bit labs are claiming that they do.

According to X-bit labs, the litter of new CPUs will comprise the FX-8370, FX-8370E, and FX-8320E. The FX-8370 looks like a slightly speedier successor to the FX-8350, while the models with "E" suffixes seem to be lower-TDP variants of their non-E brethren. (That's the case with the FX-8370E, anyhow. The site doesn't list specs for the FX-8320E other than its 95W TDP, but the implication is that it's a lower-wattage version of the FX-8320.)

Assuming I didn't misconstrue anything, the updated FX-8300 lineup should look like so:

Model Modules Threads Base core
clock speed
Max Turbo
clock speed
L3 cache TDP Price
FX-8370E 4 8 4.1 GHz 4.3 GHz 8 MB 95 W $189.00
FX-8370 4 8 4.1 GHz 4.3 GHz 8 MB 125 W $189.00
FX-8350 4 8 4.0 GHz 4.2 GHz 8 MB 125 W $189.99
FX-8320E 4 8 3.5 GHz 4.0 GHz 8 MB 95 W ?
FX-8320 4 8 3.5 GHz 4.0 GHz 8 MB 125 W $159.99

X-bit labs quotes $189 price tags for both the FX-8370 and FX-8370E, which tells me the FX-8350 will get either a price cut or a dignified send-off. The fate of the FX-8320, meanwhile, is unclear.

We'll find out for sure on September 1, which is when the rumor mill expects AMD to unwrap these new offerings.
