AMD FX8350 Review

3D Mark

We're testing 3D Mark at both Performance settings, which will show how well the CPU helps, as well as Extreme, which will be more about the GPU and will mainly highlight any problems with PCI lanes.

In both Vantage and 11, the P score backs up the rather average performance we've seen from the CPU so far. In Vantage the FX8350 is around 3000 points lower than the Intel i5. With the detail upped to Extreme there is still a thousand points between the FX and i5, even though the HD7970 does its best to level the playing field. 3D Mark 11 is closer with only 600 odd points between the two chips, and the Extreme preset actually sees the FX8350 up there with the best of the rest.

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
