AMD Bulldozer Review: FX-8150 Gets Tested

Benchmark Results: 3DMark 11

Only slightly more friendly to AMD’s new microarchitecture than PCMark 7, 3DMark 11 leverages one thread per physical core in the graphics tests and one thread per logical CPU in the physics/combined tests.

If 3DMark is recognizing two physical cores per Bulldozer module, that’d help explain the second-place Graphics suite finish. It’d do the same for the Physics test (even if Intel’s Core i7-2600K still takes first place in both).

    Not many surprises but I've been waiting for a long, long time for this. I hope this is just the first step to a more competitive AMD.

    Dissapointing. Predicted it ages ago though. PII X6 is a better value.

    I see the guys from the BD Rumors are here. As many others are, I'm disappointed.

    FX-4100 looks like a good alternative to the 955BE. Same price, higher clock, and lower power profile.
