AMD Refreshes FX CPU Lineup, Drops Prices On Older Models

AMD FX CPU 2 310x

The flagship FX-9590 is getting an $86 price drop.

Intel isn’t the only chip manufacturer with new hardware for the gaming masses, as AMD is bringing three new chips to the marker this week.

The FX-8370, FX-8370E, and FX-8320E complete the new trio, with the 8370 coming in just above the 8350 and 8320. All three chips are eight-core, Vishera-based chips, and all have operating frequencies of 4 GHz-plus. The FX-8370E and FX-8320E are interesting additions, as both have a TDP of 95W. Most of the FX family sits at 125W or higher, so these two lower-power chips should be right at home in boxes not equipped with a flux capacitor.

As for pricing, the new chips will launch at $199 (FX-8370, FX-8370E), and $147 (FX-8320E).

The new trio is a welcome sight, as is the news of the other members of the FX family getting price drops. The flagship FX chip (FX-9590) is dropping by $86, and that applies to both the standalone chip, and the model packaged with a liquid cooler.
