Testing:

The first part of our testing will involve system-specific benchmarks.

 

Let's get started with Apophysis. This program is used primarily to render and generate fractal flame images. We will run this benchmark with the following settings:

  • Resolution: 2750 x 2048
  • Quality: 500
  • Limit Memory use: 512MB

 

 

The measurement used is time to render, in minutes, to complete.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

Lower is Better

 

WinRAR is a tool to archive and compress large files to a manageable size. Here, we will test the time needed to compress files of 100MB and 500MB. Time will be measured in seconds.

 

ZIP:

  

  

Lower is Better

 

 

RAR:

  

  

Lower is Better

 

Geekbench:

Geekbench 2.1 is a benchmark that tests CPU and memory performance in an easy-to-use tool. The measure used for comparison is the total suite average score.

  

  

Higher is Better

 

Bibble 5:

This test consists of converting 100 8.2MP RAW images to jpeg format. The file size is 837MB. The measure used for comparison is time needed to convert the file in seconds.

  

Lower is Better

 

In Apophysis, the latest architecture from AMD seems to have some single-threaded performance issues, as seen with the FX-8150 delivering the slowest time in rendering the OCC Fractal image. Winrar testing shows that it fares better in RAR compression than ZIP compression. Performance is roughly similar to that given by the Core i5 2500K. Floating point performance sees similar results to that in Geekbench, falling just short of the 2500K. In Bibble 5, the FX-8150 finally shines, with performance just shy of the i7 980X. When the processors are overclocked, the FX-8150 completes the workload ahead of all the Intel and AMD processors, save the 2600K and 980X.
