AMD FX8150 CPU Review

Witcher 2

The Witcher 2 is the most demanding game on the planet, and the extra cores of the FX8150 gain us 3FPS at stock, and 7FPS when overclocked in comparison to the Core i5-2500K.


Finally wPrime95. We'd hope that those extra cores will give us some earth-shattering times, but the 2600K is leagues ahead and the 2500K not very far behind. It's all rather ho hum.

I was secretly hoping AMD could pull it out and get one over intel. Shame. This is like watching the pentium 4 all over again. On paper faster, but in reality slower and much hotter running. Oh well, Sandy Bridge E for me Quote

I didn't think it would be good, considering the 125W TDP instead of 140W and the low asking price of $250. SB-E all the way. I'm glad I didn't invest much into an AM3+ board (I got an AM3 board). Hopefully, we'll see some competition between the 8150 and the i5-2500K, price wise (may go 1155, IDK).Quote
