AMD FX/Bulldozer Registry Fix
40-70% increase in most Windows 7 benchmarks.
Holy crap, if this is remotely true.
AMD FX-8150 Passmark CPU Score has jumped from 8500 to 13000 using REG Patch. But it is not stable yet.
Do not listen to the critics and hardware sites that do a few generic benchmarks and come to a conclusion.
The boys over at Kubuntu has been working on a AMD Bulldozer fix that sort-of applies across several platforms. The ARM Cortex-A9 8 core processor had a similar problem that was overcome with a software patch. The problem right now is that the patch has to be re-registered with each Windows start. Look for a 40% performance boost if this works…. more to come.
There is most definitely a Windows 7 AMD FX – software patch in the works. By most estimates the AMD Bulldozer FX is underperforming by 40-70% in most Windows 7 benchmarks.
Back to the AMD FX-bulldozer, one of coders over a Reduser has good intel(no pun) that the FX-6100 can hit 5.6ghz on a cheap $80 liquid cooler. He says 5.6ghz steady and stable. I hate overclocking… but that is 980X territory for real. So the FX-6xxx series may end up being the dark horse here.
This also made me wet my pants, nothing confirmed, but at this point I'm still hoping it's true.Edited by ALUCARDVPR - 10/15/11 at 11:13pm
