Benchmark Results: Media Encoding
You can tell which benchmarks are more heavily optimized to take advantage of parallelism. The overclocked FX-6100 and its six integer cores perform better in HandBrake and MainConcept. In those disciplines, the overclocked AMD CPU manages to just barely surpass the performance of a stock Core i5-2500K.
When it comes to iTunes and Lame, though, the FX's poor per-clock performance winds up getting it left in the dust.
Bring on $600! FX-4100? :kaola:
fx 6100, i was surprised that it was such a deep bottlencek.
biostar ta 990fx?, you can get asrock extreme 4 with sli and xfire support for 110$
overall, indeed you have taken a chance.
i was in a mood to buy fx but wow, this changed my ming, i will now surely go with i5.
It's quantified the exceeding suck of bulldozer far better than the official bulldozer review.
Maybe win8 will change everything, but I think it dubious.
Also on the article, why try something out on a system builder marathon, the FX should of been tested in an other article, such as a review. It does not really matter that yes in fact the GPUs are much better but the CPU is holding them way back... Why cheap out on a motherboard? that Biostar TA990FXE from what I've read is not great, not good even.
*Thought this was for people who didn't really know what to build, or how to build a computer? I wouldn't recommend this build.
I still want to see how it handles multi-tasking compared to Intel.
Based on what? It was a fantastic overclocker and stable as hell.
What is your beef with the board?
Personally, I don't care who has the fastest processor, becuase I don't have the money to purchase every new cpu or video card that come out, but when I do upgrade, I just want it to be significantly faster than my previous build. 80% of the benchmarks posted are not programs that most of us even use in everyday life.
