Hey guys I have been running benchmarks on and off for the last couple days to test out my old Phenom II Against my new 8320. Mainly out of complete boredom:p. The programs I am benchmarking are Cinebench 11.5, 3dmark Firestrike physics, and a variety of games. Tomb raider, Hitman: absolution, Crysis 2, Far Cry 2, and Total war: Shogun 2. Any thoughts? Will this give a good sense of how well it will perform? Im also running tests both stock and OC'd as far as I can get both chips stable.

Well I finally got around to updating the thread with the results on the first page so here ya go!









*note: I did not run the Phenom x6 tests, those Cinebench results were run by other members of the forum who sent me screen shots. They have different Ram, MOBO's, and OC'd northbridges etc. I just added them for the heck of it.

My final conclusion is that while clock-for-clock FX does still lag behind the old 45nm architecture, the power improvements that allow much higher overclocks and increased core count easily overcome this deficiency even in older games. I can only draw this conclusion based on quad core phenom II though, I don't have any gaming numbers on the hexa core.

I did my own CPU benchmarks to compare SKUs that weren't reviewed well. Except I forgot to turn the resolution all the way down. Supposedly that's how you benchmark CPUs. Don't turn the resolution up.

Yea im running at 1280x720 on low on all games. It's actually a phenom II B50.

Can you do one with both cpus at stock, then another with both overclocked by 500mhz? (in case the phenom cant do 1ghz overclock)
That should give us a clear idea.

I'd like to read the results too

I will. Actually, about 500mhz was as far as I am able to push the Phenom I think. I'm almost done, ill post a new thread when I plug my numbers into a fancy graph.

I pretty much always bench my new CPU's vs the one its replacing. You can see the first one I did in my sig (phII vs am2), and even though its dated now, I at least think it makes sense

.

I think its really interesting to do stock clocks comparison, even clock speed comparison ( to really evaluate IPC), and then full OC comparison. This lets me see where things are at stock, really know how the IPC's compare, and how much better i"m off overall.

Also, I use handbrake encoding as a bench, and 7zip's built in benchmarking run as well, since both of those are very commonly used programs and uses cases for rigs these days. I also like to run 3dmark06, as thats pretty CPU limited these days. And also because I got into OC'in around that time period, I have lots of mental references to the speed of systems in 3dmark06, which makes it easy for me to compare my current rig to past rigs.

Good luck, and I'm interested to see the results

Ok. I will help a little on Cinebench 11.5

This is a Phenom II x6 @ 4.2ghz/NB 3000

This is a Phenom II x6 @ 4.2ghz/NB 3000 with 2 cores disable.

Thanks, ill add it into the cinebench chart.

I'd like to see both with memory of equivalent speed and maybe a test where the memory on both has been pushed to the max. IIRC, Phenom had a bad memory controller and couldn't handle much.

hey logan, lets do a cinebench and post it here too since dixson already uploaded a cinebench of his phenom X6.
Might have to make this thread a sticky, this will be a real benchmark with submitted results,
not those you can see on news blogs where we have no idea where they got the results.

I'll do one with stock and another at 4.2ghz, same as dixson.
then logan do one with your fx6300

Wow thanks guys.

I just finished running all the benchmarks so I have all the data. I'll start making the chart tomarrow after work.

TBH I have never tried to OC my memory. It doesn't really help with FPS in any games I have so I have never bothered.

As promised from the 83** thread, here is my cinebench results from my 8350 5Ghz. Also included is my old Phenom II x6 1090T at 4Ghz. However, I only have the multicore bench for it.



NB is at 2400Mhz
HT at 2600Mhz
RAM at 1600Mhz 9-9-9-24 2T at 1.5V
CPU at 200Mhz x 25 for 5Ghz at 1.525v
Temps are super toasty and reach above 72c for the core...but I left it as such for only the duration of the bench. My ambients are 29C. Enjoy!

jesus that fx8350 is a monster
eek.gif

anyway here are the benches of my fx6100, I also asked jason to put up his fx6300 here.

Stock 3.3 Ghz, Turbo at auto, everything in bios at auto

4.2 Ghz, Turbo disabled, corec6state disabled, vcore at 1.4


I forgot how snappy the fx feels like above 4ghz, been using it at stock ever since my board got RMAed

I'll be honest, when I first read this thread, I thought you were wanting ideas for programs to bench your rig on. I didn't realize that you were wanting scores from other people to make like a database type thing.

I can do that tonight when I get home. In fact, I have comparisions to my PhII 720BE at stock, and two different OC's (for both processors) on 3dmark06, 3dmark13, cinebench r11.5, 7zip, and I think handbrake. Now, because I did it just for me when I was switching CPU's, I don't have fancy screenshots, but I have the data if you want that.

you can post just the cinebench data. Its gonna be a lot of work for Deadboy90 if he has to make another chart for a different bench

the one for the single core . . . i had to use a spare monitor near a window. winter and water is a nice combination.

edit: go to File>Advance something.
