You will see the conclusion of this article is difficult to write. At first, we might be tempted to criticize this processor, because even if the performance is up, we are, from our point of view, far account for a processor Octo-Cores at 4.0 GHz, except in the level of consumption where it is clearly better, but better is to qualify as competition keeps hold of this field.
Indeed, with such a powerhouse, at least on paper, clearly we stayed on our hunger, because we thought it would be new FX finally make the big picnic Procos Santa Clara. But the discovery of the advertised price of this processor, we realized that the policy was not AMD that we thought. With 8350 AMD is, is more on Quad-Cores Intel. Indeed, € 189 processor, this model is very affordable, leaning almost as different prices Quad-Core without HT blues.
And € 189, we believe that this new FX this time is an attractive alternative, because the performances are good, even excellent on large production tasks, in addition, the OC at 5.0 GHz is the finger in the nose. By cons, as often it will do with a higher consumption than there competition.
