I figure that process maturity alone would lead to at least a 200MHz bump, which would be a 5.5% gain over the 8150 at stock. Architecture improvements are supposed to be in the realm of a 10% perf/watt improvement, and RCM is at minimum another 10% improvement. The only thing that would hold back Piledriver's performance would be if AMD clocks the thing conservatively for power savings.
