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.
  • 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

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.

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.
  • Pros: New Instruction Sets, Great Multimedia and Computational Performance, Improved Memory Controller, SLI Support, Consistent Features Across all 900 Series Motherboards
  • Cons: New Instruction Sets, Great Multimedia and Computational Performance, Improved Memory Controller, SLI Support, Consistent Features Across all 900 Series Motherboards, Weak Single Thread Performance, Inconsistent Multi-Threaded Performance, Overall Performance does not Warrant "FX" title, Some 800...

AMD FX-8150 - iskupio ga overclocking

PC Ekspert
12 December 2011
  • 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.
  • Pros: Solidan OC potencijal, ipak solidne općenite performanse, mala potrošnja na tvorničkim taktovima.
  • Cons: Nekonkurentna cijena, veliko povećanje potrošnje prilikom "jačeg" overclockinga .

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
