AMD FX-8150 Black Edition 8-Core Processor vs Core i7-2600K Review

AMD FX Processor (AMD FX-8150 Black Edition) Review vs Intel Core i7-2600K

CPU Performance

First up for our CPU tests we have Cinebench and Sisoft Sandra which offer a synthetic approach to testing. These are followed by our own Photoshop Benchmark which looks at real world performance within that application.



Photoshop Benchmark AMD FX-8150 Intel i7-2600K
Texturiser 1.0 0.6
CMYK Colour Conversion 0.8 0.7
RGB 0.8 0.7
Ink 14.6 12.5
Dust 1.1 1.2
Watercolor 15.0 12.3
Texturiser 2 0.9 0.6
Stained 12.3 7.3
Lighting 1.3 1.1
Mosaic 6.9 6.0
Extrude 53.9 38.4
Smart Blur 51.4 34.0
Underpaint 20.6 14.3
Palette 17.3 12.0
Sponge 20.9 17.8
Total 218.8 159.5

The FX-8150 is priced at a level between the 2500K and 2600K however given the market targeted by the AMD CPU and upcoming release of the 2700K which will affect the 2600K price we feel the 2600K is the most appropriate comparison CPU now and in the coming months. So, starting with the two synthetic tests we see that when the Intel CPU has a small lead over the AMD chip with the fully multi-threaded Cinebench scoring the 2600K around .80 points ahead when both have their turbo feature enabled.

Moving to Photoshop it comes as no surprise that Intel have the lead here, it is something which has been the case for many generations of products and Bulldozer/FX has not changed this.
