AMD FX-8150 3.60 GHz with Windows Patches

techPowerUp!
13 February 2012
  • Summary: AMD Bulldozer is with us for months now, more than enough time has passed for the product to set into its market slot. Bulldozer and AMD did not live up to expectations, nor did they deliver a competitive desktop product which they very much need right now. For the past few years, AMD has always been two steps behind Intel, but always found a way to stay competitive in certain market segments that kept AMD operational.
  • Pros: Modular and versatile architecture, Great performance in multithreaded applications, Great overclocking potential
  • Cons: General performance below expectations, and rival products, High power consumption under load, compared to Intel's chips, Not the best choice for hardcore gamers

AMD FX-8150

PC Magazine
12 December 2011
  • Conclusion: AMD threatens to make a dent in Intel’s performance leadership with its FX-8150 CPU, the first to use the company’s completely redesigned Bulldozer core architecture, but stumbles in a few key areas.
  • Pros: Excellent multithreaded performance. Attractive price. Unlocked multiplier for simplified overclocking.
  • Cons: Not always faster than competing Intel or AMD CPUs. Sluggish with single-threaded workloads. High power usage under load. No integrated graphics. May require new motherboard. Windows 8 required for some features.

The AMD FX-8150 Bulldozer CPU and Scorpius (FX) Platform Reviewed – Part Two

Futurelooks
2 November 2011
  • Summary: There has been a lot of talk on the Internet about lack luster performance and disappointed reviewers of the Bulldozer processor. I am personally not disappointed, but I am not impressed either. The “FX” moniker stood for the top performing chip of its time no matter how you sliced it. Bulldozer is a brilliant, forward looking design, but it does not deserve the “FX” title. The issue with the Bulldozer design is it seems to have something personal against old software.

  • Excerpt: Looking at the performance of the new AMD FX-8150 in our original launch coverage is really important. It's important to cover those synthetic benchmarks as well as those CPU orientated tests like Media Encoding and Image Manipulation. You can't really test a new CPU, nor come to any form of real conclusion without covering those areas.

AMD FX-8150 - iskupio ga overclocking

PC Ekspert
4 March 2014
  • Conclusion: U ovome je benchmarku situacija zanimljiva jedino kod minimalnog broja sličica u sekundi. Ovdje je FX-8150 na referentnim taktovima u lošoj poziciji, a overclocking koliko toliko spašava stvar – barem u slučaju kada je Teselacija isključena. Još jedan Teselacijom nabijen benchmark i još jedan loš rezultat za Zambezije U Mafiji II stvari postaju zanimljve kada koristimo najviši stupanj fizike.
  • Pros: Solidan OC potencijal, ipak solidne općenite performanse, mala potrošnja na tvorničkim taktovima.
  • Cons: Nekonkurentna cijena, veliko povećanje potrošnje prilikom "jačeg" overclockinga .

AMD FX-8150 Bulldozer

28 May 2013
  • Excerpt: O primeiro processador com oito núcleos do mercado de desktops já chegou! Está na altura de entrar em modo super multi-tarefa para tirar máximo partido da novidade AMD . O cenário da guerra dos processadores tem-se mantido pouco renhida nos últimos anos com a Intel a dominar claramente e a AMD a manter-se em jogo pelas soluções de baixo custo e para quem procura realmente a melhor relação desempenho/preço.

AMD FX 8150: un passo verso il futuro

insidehardware.it
14 December 2011
  • Conclusion: Il processore FX-8150, è davvero difficile da valutare. I Test mostrano prestazioni ancora inferiori rispetto alle soluzioni intel, collocandolo  tra i5 e i7 in molte situazioni, mentre in altre appena dietro. Puntualizziamo però che dove abbiamo utilizzato test fortemente multi threaded, abbiamo riscontrato una grande competitività con l' i7 2600k. L'incremento complessivo rispetto alle soluzioni Phenom II è sostanziale.
  • Pros: Tecnologicamente Innovativo, Ottime Capacità di Overclock, Grande Flessibilità d'impiego, Grande potenziale di sviluppo, Trarrà grandi benefici da Windows 8
  • Cons: Performance carenti in ambienti scarsamente parallelizzati, Rapporto Potenza/Consumi migliorabile

AMD FX-8150

pcworld.pl
24 October 2011
  • Conclusion: FX-8150 jest pierwszym procesorem opartym o zupełnie nową architekturę Bulldozer. Składa się on z czterech modułów, a w każdym z nich możemy znaleźć po dwa rdzenie. Łatwo możemy policzyć, że najnowsza jednostka AMD jest jednostką ośmiordzeniową. Ale czy na pewno?
  • Pros: Nowoczesny i przyszłościowy
  • Cons: Duży pobór mocy, Niska wydajność w grach
