AMD FX-8150 Bulldozer Preview

Conclusions

I said at first that Bulldozer architecture is a turning point for AMD, defining what will happen to the company's products in the coming years, also, knowing the philosophy behind this new architecture, and most fans both new company or simply Technology enthusiasts have built many expectations about the Bulldozer. 8 cores combined in an effective, attention by the mainstream market AMD FX brand and achieve a return of 8.43 GHz frequency before launch, all fit that this product seems to be very competitive.

But in our short passing test suite, we had the most brutal awakening since test components and write reviews, simply it is difficult to find a scenario where the bulldozer is a competitive solution. Handbrake only approaching 2600K and i7's performance with lower price may be considered a smart choice, assuming you only x264 encoder, but what about heat dissipation and power consumption of the approximately 250 RON will be saved to buy a better cooler and we will remain for many current bills. Or what of the lack of vigor in less multithreaded applications, or downright tragic performance in floating point calculations? How justified that in some benchmarks is considerably slower than its predecessor, the Phenom II? How explain the fact that the manufacturer AMD encourages overclocking, but Bulldozer double their energy consumption and so much just by raising the frequency and voltage in modest limits?

And we can not even enjoy the fact that AMD motherboards are usually cheaper because Bulldozer requires a motherboard with a power floor very, very strong to cope with current consumed by the processor, so therefore discuss quite expensive models that bring the platform at a cost similar to the Intel platform.

Unfortunately for us Bulldozer was not what we expected, and the disappointment is even greater as this architecture marks five years since AMD processors lost market leadership, and 5 years from the last iteration of the brand FX . As a user of the Athlon 64, and now I remember the aura of exclusivity from benefiting expensive FX series processors, which fully deserves its price but because they were capable performance. Five years later, we are dealing with the hurting memory of his ancestors FX, a significantly lower performance than the competition and significantly higher consumption. And, in this case the price really does not matter. We want to see $ 1,000 AMD able to fight side by side with solutions from Intel, not cheap products that do not justify their price anyway.

We can only hope that AMD will somehow fix the problem even in short-term energy consumption by a new revision, otherwise quite gloomy days loom for this area, because no real competition at this level does not bring anything good for the consumer Finally.

I'm pretty disappointed, but I guess the good thing is I can rock my s775 (maybe upgrade to a qx9650) for another year or two.

Last time it was put up it was cleaned far too many times... not going through that again.
