AMD FX8350 Review

CineBench R11.5

You would imagine that such calculative prowess would bring mind-blowing scores when rendering, but of course you have to take into account the woeful memory performance. So, in the end, the FX8350 is a bit better than the FX8150, a bit better than the quad-core i5-3570K, but left for dead by any current Intel processors. Even the i7-2600K whips it handily.



There are two parts to the POV-Ray test. The average result tell you how fast the whole system works, and the Per CPU gives a decent indication of how efficient each core is. So if we compare the two CPUs that AMD want us to compare, one i5 core is worth 378 PPS, whereas a single AMD FX8350 core is only able to give 218 PPS. Our 'two AMD for one Intel' still holds true.

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
