Asus put out a faulty bios and bd is getting the blame.

Once asus fixes their bios like what msi and asrock did, i suspect tom's, anandtech, etc will fall over themselves issuing new benchmarks for the new speedy fx-8150.

There is no difference in that review.

At all.

What you're seeing is different resolutions creating gpu bottlenecks, every other results is exactly the same.



Is bulldozer bottlenecking at 1600p, at 30 fps, or is it gpu limited just like the SB systems?




Clock for Clock, with UD7



Whats this, 5.97 at stock? Where have I seen that before?

Oh right, every other review on the web.

It's all based on the assumption that what you have is a Ferrari......

What if with tyres flat or not, it's actually a Lada?

I liked that one. The 8150 desperately needs a price adjustment. It should be =< 2500K. In time

The ASRock and MSI tests are showing the FX-8150 being a Ferrari instead of the Lemon that Asus suggests.

If there weren't tests done on the other boards, we would not have known that this problem is attributable to Asus.

But now that reviews using ASRock and MSI boards are popping up showing very good performance from BD, it's hard to deny that Asus may have been the problem and not BD.

Use an Asus board and you get a lemon, use an ASRock board and all of a sudden it's a Ferrari. That can't be blamed on BD.

Keep on with your wishful thinking. If Asus is getting the blame for a faulty BIOS, you better blame it on ASRock also.

I suggest you read the entire review as BD still generally gets spanked.

You got a link of any of those reviews? But not the ones comparing a overclocked 8150 to other chips at stock.

Again, different boards yielding different results:

ASRock 990FX Extreme4
http://www.hardwareheaven.com/review...-extreme4.html

Using an Extreme4, the BD looks quite mighty

If you're a high resolution gamer, BD adapts to the higher res. 2600K is better for low res gamers.

Here is an ASRock Extreme4 board:
http://www.hardwareheaven.com/review...roduction.html

SB owns at low res, BD owns at high res.

It seems that 2600k is the better buy if you are doing low res gaming, BD is the better buy for hi-res gaming.

So if you're the type that lowers their res settings, Sandy Bridge is the way to go. But if you're the kind that likes to turn all the settings way up, BD owns (as long at it's the ASRock Extreme4 board, for now).

You do understand based on logic alone your comment makes absolutely no sense, right?
