Mini Review

AMD FX-8320 advantages



AMD FX-8320
  • The CPU performs 9% better in multi-threaded applications, or when running multiple single-threaded tasks.
  • Memory performance of the processor is better.
  • The AMD FX-8320 has SSSE3, SSE4.1 and SSE4.2 instructions enabled.
  • The FX-8320 microprocessor features Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) technology. This extension accelerates AES encryption and decryption, and is beneficial if you need to protect your disk or network data.
  • The processor supports AVX, F16C, FMA3 and XOP instructions. These extensions are not widely supported by programs yet, but their support should improve in future applications.
  • The microprocessor has FMA4 instruction set extension enabled. Only AMD CPUs offer this technology, therefore not many software vendors may support it in the future.

Benchmarks

System setup

Below is a complete set of AMD FX-8320 and Phenom II X6 1090T benchmarks from our CPU benchmark database. The former processor was tested on ASUS Sabertooth 990FX motherboard with 4GB dual-channel Crucial BallistixPC3-14900 (DDR3-1866) memory, and MSI R6670 1GB GDDR5 (ATI Radeon). The latter processor was tested on ASRock M3A780GXH/128M motherboard, that had 2 GB dual-channel Corsair CM3X1024-1333C9 DDR3 memory, and Powercolor 24PRO256M DDR2 (ATI Radeon HD2400) graphics.

All tests were performed at default frequency and voltage, using manufacturer's stock fan/heatsink. None of the components were overclocked. Motherboard BIOS options were left at default settings.

The results of all benchmarks are broken into four categories: multi-threaded, single-threaded, memory intensive and graphics / gaming.


FX-8320 vs Phenom II X6 1090T single-threaded benchmarks

Single-threaded benchmarks run on a single CPU core, and do not depend on such features as the number of cores, or Hyper-Threading technology. Additionally, they do not utilize on-chip caches, dedicated to other cores.

FX-8320 vs Phenom II X6 1090T graphics benchmarks

Graphics benchmarks depend on the type of integrated or discrete graphics adapter, and to less extent on the processor performance. Because these benchmarks are synthetic, they may not truly represent gaming performance. However, they still can be used to estimate whether one processor will perform faster or slower than another CPU in games and other 3D tasks.

Important! The processors were tested using different types of graphics adapters, that may not be suitable for comparison.
