AMD FX8150 CPU Review


CineBench is a perfect multi-threaded application and we should finally see the FX8150 start rocking out. Except we don't. Once again the Quad Core i5-2500K is perfectly able to match the Octo Core FX8150, and the hyperthreading on the i7-2600K is in another league altogether. Theoretically hyperthreading shouldn't be as good as a genuine core.

PC Mark 7

For PC Mark 7 we're not using the Intel Rapid Storage Technology as it would obviously skew the graph greatly in favour of the i5-2500K. Even without it the Sandy Bridge CPU is a clear leader on the graph, and the FX8150 needs a serious overclock to pass its two-core lighter predecessor. When the AMD hexcore is keeping up, it's worrying.
