Testing:

ScienceMark tests real-world performance instead of using synthetic benchmarks. For this test, we run the benchmark suite and will use the overall score for comparison.

CineBench 10 is useful for testing your system, CPU, and OpenGL capabilities using the software program, CINEMA 4D. We will be using the default tests for this benchmark.

HD Tune measures disk performance to make comparisons between drives or disk controllers.

PCMark 7 is the latest iteration of Futuremark's popular PCMark system performance tool. This latest version is designed for use on Windows 7 PCs and features a combination of 25 different workloads to accurately measure the performance of all PCs from laptops to desktops.

In the single-threaded tests, we again see a distinct drop in performance when compared to previous-generation AMD processors and against the 2600K and 2500K. Multi-threaded performance is still where the FX-8150 shows its best performance. In Cinebench 11.5, only the 980x and 2600K outperform it. The HDTune testing shows that regardless of platform, the drive will perform similarly. The latency scoring and CPU usage show that the Scorpius platform needs a tweak with Bulldozer before it can lower the usage and access times. PCMark 7 gives a little more of the same, with the FX-8150 showing performance above that of previous-generation AMD chips by virtue of the additional core count.
