Review: AMD FX-8350 Boxed [FD8350FRHKBOX]

The new AMD FX-8350 Boxed solution in all applications demonstrates high performance, works on the popular AM3 + socket, which makes it possible to upgrade fairly old machines. For 60-70 euros, users get a four-module, eight-core processor with a base frequency of 4 GHz, an unlocked multiplier, having a cache 16 MB of the second and third levels . However, this is a double-edged sword: with such characteristics, it is very difficult to achieve acceptable power consumption and heat dissipation.

AMD FX-8350 is a solution for enthusiasts who can easily add a powerful cooling system to their computer to cope with heat generation. Other users can use the processor with a boxed cooler. For ordinary not heavy tasks, stock cooling will be quite enough.

You can buy AMD FX-8350 8 core (Octa Core) CPU with 4.00 GHz, Boxed with heatsink for the price 72,90 . Don’t forget to use discount coupon on computeruniverse.netFWNNROU (How to use it?).

Review: Intel Core i3-8100 «Coffee Lake» Tray Sockel 1151-v2 [CM8068403377308]

Core i3-8100 – Intel’s budget quad-core processor from the Coffee Lake family. In contrast to the “stones” of the previous generation Kaby Lake, it operates at lower base frequencies, but it has a larger number of cores. By performance, the processor is practically not inferior to its Core i5 counterparts from the previous Kaby Lake generation, but it is sold for a lower price.

There is no Turbo Boost technology in the Core i3-8100, which means that the chip operates at a constant frequency regardless of how many cores are active at current moment. The processor is worse than the Core i3-7100 when lightly loaded, however, thanks to the four physical cores, there is a noticeable performance increase in heavy distributed loads, where the advantage will be on the side of Core i3-8100.

A larger number of cores use more electricity, so the TDP of i3-8100 is 65 W, as opposed to the 51 W consumption of Core i3-7100.

The processor Core i3-8100 demonstrates surprisingly balanced performance characteristics, especially given its retail price. But due to its mass character and popularity, after two years of selling it did not become cheaper.

You can buy Intel Core i3-8100 “Coffee Lake” 4 core (Quad Core) CPU with 3.60 GHz for the price 116,90 . Don’t forget to use discount coupon FWNNROU (How to use it?).
