Amidst the tick-tock of Intel releases, AMD slash prices on their 8 core FX-Series processors. Huge price cuts have been made to the likes of the FX-9xxx series while we see the introduction of various new SKUs that offer marginally improved performance within the same TDP as previous models. Of the latest released, we see two models coming with the energy efficient 'e' moniker.

Today we take a look at the FX-8370e, which has a 95W TDP and features a base/turbo frequency of 3.3/4.3 GHz. Considering that power use is one of the primary concerns for some, these 'e' series processors will make for a slightly more tempting purchase over other models. Groans may be made by some at the lack of progression because these chips are based on the aging 'Piledriver' core, still, this stirring allows AMD to make face. Let's put it to the test.
