AMD FX8150 CPU Review

SiSoft Sandra

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?

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
