Conclusion: This really isn’t easy for me. Here at Motherboards.Org I have the reputation for being a bit of an AMD fan boy when it comes to their processors. I’ve always favored NVIDIA because of their design and the fact that they are generally quieter than AMD’s graphics cards. This review has been very difficult for me to do.
Summary: The 8-core FX-8120 CPU from AMD gets near the 2500K performances in heavy multithreaded apps and thanks to its unlocked features, we can overclock it near 50% (depending on the quality of the batch). Thanks to the latest price reductions and promotions, it gets into the area of mainstream CPUs, making it attractive for people that do not want to spend excessively on their new upgrade.
Excerpt: AMD has a long history of providing top-notch graphics cards , and the Radeon HD 7870 is no exception. This high-end video card boasts a base clock speed starting at 1GHz, processing and rendering graphics faster than you can say, "Fus Roh Dah!
Pros: The HD 7870 has low power consumption and high graphical output. It supports up to six displays and the GPU is overclockable to above 1GHz.
Cons: This video card is long and takes two six-pin connections to run.
Codename “Pitcairn”: AMD Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition and HD 7850 Graphics Cards
4 April 2012
Summary: Will the daring newcomers based on the mainstream AMD GPUs be able to outdo the previous generation High-End graphics cards in performance, energy-efficiency and price? You bet they will! This is what we will talk about in our today’s review.
Conclusion: FX-8120, like the Bulldozer platform in whole, is bit of a weird product on the market. While it has mediocre performance in multithreaded programs, it falls far behind similarly priced Intel processors in singlethreaded programs. Intel i5 2500K did beat the FX-8120 with more than three times better results in some tests and throughout our tests it showed better or similar performance.

Excerpt: Back in October we conducted an in-depth test of AMD’s FX-8150 Black Edition , the range topping processor based on their latest Bulldozer architecture. We were reasonably impressed with the chip as it overclocked well and outperformed the Intel Core i5-2500K in a number of tests.
