Testing:

SiSoft Sandra is a diagnostic utility and synthetic benchmarking program. Sandra allows you to view your hardware at a higher level to be more helpful. For this benchmark, I will be running a broad spectrum of tests to gauge the performance of key functions of the CPUs.

AIDA64 Extreme Edition: is a software utility designed to be used for hardware diagnosis and benchmarking. I will be using the CPU Queen test that looks for the solution for the "Queens" problem on a 10x10 chessboard. This tests the branch prediction capabilities of the processor. The FPU Mandel test measures double precision floating point performance through computation of several frames of the "Mandelbrot" fractal.

  
  

Higher is Better

The results in Sandra are a mixed bag, with the FX-8150 showing mostly middle-of-the-road performance against the Intel chips. This may be due to the higher inter-core latency and memory latency in comparison to the previous-gen AMD chips. In the AIDA64 tests, the FX-8150 has a hard time keeping up with the 1090T.
