In this post I will post the results of my comparison between an FX8120 @ 4.5ghz and i5 2500k @ 4.4ghz. I could not get the i5 to 4.5ghz due to a multi wall @ x45 so 4.4ghz will have to suffice. A note on my methods: I ran each benchmark twice back to back and recorded the best result. I'll start with the synthetic benchmarks. The only thing that changed between setups was mobo and cpu, everything else stayed the same. All overclocking was done with multiplier only.

Cinebench Note: I have no idea why Cinebench reported clock speed as 3.3ghz on the 2500k. I included a screenshot of cpu-z to show the clockspeed was at 4.4ghz.

AMD System Specs:
cpu: FX-8120 @ 4.5ghz
mobo: Asrock 990FX Fatal1ty
ram: 4gb G.Skill 1600 mhz DDR3
psu: Thermaltake Toughpower 1000 watt
video card: HD6950 2gb

Intel system specs:
cpu: i5 2500k @ 4.4ghz
mobo: Asrock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3
ram: 4gb G.Skill 1600 mhz DDR3
psu: Thermaltake Toughpower 1000 watt
video card: HD6950 2gb

Games:

First let me explain how I went about the gaming benches. As with the synthetics, the games were each run twice back to back with the best result selected. None of the games had AA enabled with the exception of Metro. In Metro I had a choice only between AAA and MSAA in DX11, I chose AAA. I chose the highest settings in the options menu for all games but Motion blur was always disabled. Again not sure why some games report the 2500k clock speed as 3.3ghz. The clock was at 4.4ghz for the 2500k the entire time. If a game had more than one Direct X render, I benched them all. You're going to see some really low minimum fps in benches that had physx enabled because I don't have a dedicated physx gpu and I thought it would be a good way to test out cpu performance in those games. Resolution for all games was set to 1080p which is my native resolution.

Clearly not, you don't know how it works. The CPU has to build every individual frame before it sends the data to the GPU to be rendered.

This has scheduler patch right? And a huge difference in memory performance on Geekbench? confused.gif

Pretty interesting numbers there. Thanks and +Rep for the effort and information. FX is a decent CPU and this proves it, however I'd like to see the power consumption data.

Yeah the FX8120 looks really good in these tests. Couldn't you raise the BCLK on the Intel rig to 102? That would put the i2500k clockspeed @ 4.488ghz. Dunno if your memory could take it.

These numbers look...different than all the other benches I've seen between the two.

Agreed. But since OP tested this, so it has to be legit.

@OP, you never described your Intel setup on the parts you were going to be using. You only stated AMD's (ASRock Fata1ty, etc). Would be nice to know the system.

Thanks for all the hard work! +1
