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:
|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.
