amd piledriver fx8350 eng sample running cinebench 11.5
cinebench is a 4 dimensional benchmarkprogram that gives a good hint about the cpu performance.
amd piledriver is the successor to amd bulldozer and offers better ipc, lower power consumption and overall more efficient architecture, what amd calls a 8 core piledriver cpu has 4 modules, each module has two integer units and one 256bit flouting point unit, it usually scales better than intels ht technology
Here is ak interesting test http //www.hardcoreware.net/amd-piledriver-fx-review-vishera-8350/1/ at stock speeds intel i5-3570k wins 2 gaming benchmark and looses 2 against vishera
amd piledriver will have to compete with intel sandy bridge and sandy bridge-e(up to 6 cores+ht), ive bridge sandy bridge. amd calls it "resonant clock mesh" which according to amd reduces the power consumption by 24%.
cinebench will load up to 32 threads and is therefore a good way to measure the real world potential of the cpu.
cinebench is hyperthreding friendly so the i7-series will recieve a performance boost by around 15-25%.
i had the cpu clocked at 3400mhz during the test, the avarage clockspeed was higher due to turbocore 2.0
amd fx-8*** series has 4 module, a module has shared fetch, decode, l1 cpde cache and floating point unit, FPU. the dublicated resourses is the l1, data cache, int schedulers, and cores. all the 4 cores shares 8MB of l3 cache. the effective cache is over 16MB due to amd s exclusive cache design.
you might notice that the performance is very poor, it is i7-2600k in the video and not amd piledriver. have a nice day!
