AMD FX8350 Review


Memory performance is frankly abysmal. A 4.8GHz eight core CPU with 1866MHz memory gets trounced by the little 2.8GHz i3-2300, let alone the i5-3570K that AMD claim the Piledriver is targetted against. Memory bandwidth has never been an AMD strong-suit, but this is risible.

The press blurb explains how fantastic the FX8350 is at calculation-heavy tasks, and maybe it is (we'll see on the next pages), but the amount of bandwidth available is farcical. When a stock clocked quad-core can nearly double the bandwidth, you've got problems that mere clock speed can't overcome.

Oh, dear.... more AMD fail

I don't think AMD are going to be in the desktop CPU market much longer. They have had a loss of $157 million in earnings and are sacking 15% of their employees. They need to pull something out of the bag to either compete with Ivy or for Haswell next year, other wise I can't see them having a place in the market.Quote

Because, as we said in the review, if you've already got an AM3+ board, this is the fastest CPU AMD have to offer.Quote
