The extra beef of the 8 core FX8150 pays some dividends in the Dhrystone and Whetstone tests in Sandra, although nothing as spectacular as one would expect from twice the cores. Indeed the hyperthreaded i7-2600K decimates it.
Comparing solely against the FX8150s intended competition it's only really the Integer x16 benchmark that sees any significant benefit. What are those other four cores doing?
