Testing:

Office 2007 Excel Big Number Crunch: This test takes a 6.2MB Microsoft Excel spreadsheet and performs about 28,000 sets of calculations that represent many of the most commonly used calculations in Excel. The measure of this test is the amount of time it takes to refresh the sheet.

POV-Ray 3.7: This program features a built-in benchmark that renders an image using Ray Tracing. The latest versions offer support for SMP (Symmetric MultiProcessing), enabling the workload to be spread across the cores for quicker completion.

  

Higher Is Better

 

ProShow Gold: This program is used to take a collection of images and stitch them together in a slide show, using a variety of transitions and effects, to make a compelling show you can share with friends and family. The workload consists of 29 high-resolution images that are stitched into a 3 minute video file.

Handbrake .9.5: is an open source application used to transcode multiple video formats to an h.264 output format. The test file size is 128MB in size and 43 seconds in length.

  

Lower Is Better

 

The FX-8150 finishes the Excel workload faster than previous generation, lower core-count processors, but still falls short of the performance given by the 2500K. The difference appears to rely on more than sheer core-count. However, the additional cores of the FX-8150 pay dividends in the PovRay testing, where it renders a higher pixel count than all but one of the Intel processors – when overclocked with similar clock speeds, the 2600K delivers a higher score. In ProShow Gold, the FX-8150's 8 cores deliver performance that trumps that of the 2500K and previous-gen AMD processors. Overclocked, it completes the workload in more time than the lower-clocked, aging i7 920. In Handbrake, the workload completes just a tad slower than the 2600K in both the stock and overclocked scenarios.
