Under Prime 95 the FXs consume 23% more than with heavy regular MT loading.

With a FX8370E at 4.5GHz and Prime 95 Hardware.fr got 195W delta at the wall.

Under regular MT loading the delta would be 158W and 128W respectively at the wall and at the CPU level.

The FX8320E tested by AT has 3-4% higher comsumption numbers than this 8370E, wich point to a negligible difference between these two SKUs, at least up to this frequency, at 4.8 the 8370E is clearly better.
