AMD FX 8370 & FX 8370E Features:

New Instruction Capabilities

  • AVX - Advanced Vector Extensions increase parallelism for scientific and 3D apps using heavy floating point calculations
  • FMA4 and XOP – Floating-Point Vector Multiply-Accumulate and eXtended Operations improves throughput and performance on many integer and floating point vector functions
  • AES - Advanced Encryption Standard increases performance on encryption apps like TrueCrypt® and PCMark®

AMD FX Processors

  • We call it the new AMD FX 8-Core Processor Black Edition and it's unlocked for your overclocking pleasure.1 Experience unmatched multitasking and pure core performance with the industry's first 32nm 8-core desktop processor. Get the speed you crave with AMD Turbo CORE Technology to push your core frequencies to the limit when you need it most. Go beyond the limits of maximum speed with easy-to-use AMD OverDrive™ technology and AMD Catalyst™ Control Center™ software suites. But the best part of all? You'll get all this impressive performance at an unbelievable price. You'll be asking yourself "what competition?" in no time.

AMD FX 8-Core Processors

  • The industry's first and only native 8-core desktop processor for unmatched multitasking and pure core performance with "Bulldozer" architecture.
  • New 32 nanometer die shrink designed to reduce leakage for improved efficiency, increased clock rate headroom and better thermals.

AMD Turbo CORE Technology

  • AMD FX Processors come equipped with AMD Turbo CORE Technology.2 AMD Turbo CORE Technology is a performance boosting technology that helps increase performance on the applications that need it the most.

AMD Balanced Smart Cache

  • Benefit: Helps virtualization software to run more securely and efficiently enabling a better experience when dealing with virtual systems

AMD PowerNow!™ AMD Technology (Cool'n'Quiet™ Technology)

  • Enhanced power management features which automatically and instantaneously adjusts performance states and features based on processor performance requirements
  • C6 power state flushes the cache and removes voltage from individual cores to help reduce power consumption
  • CC6 power state puts all cores in C6 into an even lower power state
  • for quieter operation and reduced power requirements
  • Separate memory controller power control
  • IO-based c-state interface
  • Works automatically without the need for drivers or BIOS enablement.
  • Power can be switched on or off within a single clock cycle, saving energy with minimal impact to performance
  • Benefit: Helps users get more efficient performance by dynamically activating or turning off parts of the processor.
