i benched mine at 5060mhz (close to that at least) and was still slower than my 1100. I will say windows feels snappier though with the 8150 and it has a way better memory controller so I might try something more in the 2000+mhz range, but I swear maps take longer to load with my overclocked 8150 than the 1100. Im going to play with the 8150 a while and extra fine tune it till I decide to put the 1100 back in. I can always reinstall or repurchase the BD when/if it gets better.
I really think its underutilized, software just cant take advantage of it, amd managed 8 cores in one chip but most people never needed more than 4 anyways. I know in the future as software becomes more threaded it will start to get faster
