Well I put an 8120 @ 4.5GHz to the test, against my 2500K (clocked down to 4.5 for a fair test). The test was a one dimensional nozzle simulation. Multi threading was set to 8 and 4 respectively.

Now the software I used is dependent upon huge memory bandwidth, as well as excellent int and FPU performance. Both chips were tested with 6GB of 1866 Corsair Dom GT (9-9-9-24).

If core efficiency didn't matter, why did my quad core finish in 3:45 minutes and the 8120 in 5:05?

What might happen is market separation - Intel taking the high end sector and AMD - the low powered range. If this were to happen, Intel would drive the top end prices higher than they already are and drop mid range prices a bit more to keep AMD in check and eventually put them out of business in the CPU market. That is unless AMD get their act together and make a worthy comeback.

For 140E that's f---in' sweet :D Still sticking with K rated i5s though, there's just so much horsepower in them when you start clocking! I remember my ol' Phenom II 965 used to get quite unstable past 3.85 GHz. I hope the 'dozers don't suffer the same issues. Enjoy it though!

great video, we should get more like this!

I don't feel so bad with my ''old' i7 875k @ 4.3Ghz Cinebench gets 7.35 pts.. curious to see how well these chips do with the upcoming patch for windows 7

@niwrem1 My thoughts exactly. Isn't it also possible that the benchmark software is also code-wise not ready to fully utilize AMD's new architecture? If anyone studied the PS3's history, it can be noted that developers struggled to get games running well with the processor because its architecture was vastly different(not bad) . This goes to show that old code with new hardware isn't always going to be a breeze. AMD have always built for the future. They were the first with 64bit as well.

Maybe at single-threaded applications, but from everything I've seen the FX series are built for multi-threaded applications and excel at it. It depends on purpose, but I'm watching to see whether from now it goes to worse or better.

@steven4570 This thing was made to overclock. Which means if you keep it stock clock of course it's going to crumble against intel in the same price ranged. If you overclock it to it's maximum with water cooling then i'm guessing you'll see more of around an i7 performance. Also keep in mind that it's made to go along side ATI graphics, the cpu's performance is based on your setup. So I'm still going to get this chip no matter what all the haters say because

I bought this from tiger and its on its way, logan is always my fav classic reviewer, ive been watching him since the 8800 gtx vids

If it was an 8 series FX - you've got a bargain! In here they retail higher than 2500Ks and just about on par with 2600Ks, hence I went Z68 + Sandy Bridge. Maybe would have swung the other way if I could get it this cheap.

@darksoul844 Well Bulldozer was speculated to but not suggested by AMD to destroy the competition. Bulldozer is merely a trooper on the front line. Piledriver that is expected to come out next year probably on 32 or 22n manufacturing process will offer an upgraded architecture and better stats.

my fx-8120 gets 7.10pts @ 4.34ghz in cinebench, AMD are constantly improving the firmware of the bulldozer architecture.

If you are a web developer, programmer, video encoder who is multitreading all the time I think this is the best cpu you can get. I read this cpu is not that good at single threaded applications. Building a cheap webserver or sql server with this cpu I think would be very ideal.

Nice vid and not bias..Would you please bench this cpu with 2 or 3 benching programs running at the same time.
Thanks

its increase your clock rate, it makes you get better FPS during video games, faster video editing, any task that uses the cpu will perform faster. an example would be taking an fx 4100 say, it comes at 3.6 ghz, but in the bios you can change the voltage and clock speed. so you can bump it up to 4.2 ghz and it will run faster. but you have to set the right voltages and get a stable overclock so you dont screw up your cpu and kill it

while you might be right about the 8320 wrecking this chip it does not discount it. This chip is still a great one and especially for the price it is now.

Its a Thermaltake Level Ten guys. Might be the GT version? Dont think so though.

Its a bit pricey but if you like the looks, its certainly not a bad case. To me, once you take the cost out of the equation, its 100% about aesthetics. I dont think its ugly by a long shot, but I dont think its for me either.

I hate to say it though, but he's right. I have seen Phenom processors perform faster than the 8 core FX. The bulldozer can only really match an i5 which is intel's mid-range processor. I am an AMD fan over anyone but the bulldozer's are just a bad buy. I expected much more from them like how great the original FX-64 processors were.

@clamo636 AMD was always known for low budget performance. I have a Core i5 but I'm glad AMD is around to compete or else everything would be more expensive.

So disappointed in bulldozer. I was looking forward to going back to AMD, but that's not gonna happen now. Will probably be getting a 2500k on Black Friday. Unless it's a bios or windows issue right now, which is a possibility. In any case, they have about 6 weeks to get it sorted out. I'd love to give them my money, but with the performance they're showing, there's no way. Bulldozer is getting beat by deneb and thuban in a lot of benches. Single threaded performance is atrocious.
