  • why does the fx-8150 get such a high score

    Why does virtually every review site i find say its such a bad CPU, usually putting it below the i5-2500k. Yet on here it benchmarks are exactly where you would expect from the price point. i realize its only from 5 samples and maybe thats the problem`. if it is accurate why do so many sites come up with such different conclusions.

    At the moment all the samples for the AMD FX-8150 are 64bit (and there are only a few samples as of today, as this is still a new CPU).

    So being all 64bit will lift the result.

    It will also be effected by the issues discussed here,

    (Which basically state that the CPU is pretty good, ....in a narrow area of 64bit functionality)
