The 125w octa-core processor retails at around RM 680, one of the best deal you can get from AMD's FX range of processor. With a little overclocking, you cam get it to perform very closely to the FX-9590 processor that is retailing at nearly RM 1300. ...

Late May we published a huge round-up of 45 desktop processors , followed by a review of Intel's fourth generation Core processors . Our readers immediately, and understandably, came with the request for a similar group test of laptop processors. It's...

On June 4 Intel is launching its next generation Core processors, also called Haswell. That means it's the perfect opportunity for us to retest all current processors and a number of older ones with a completely new test configuration. It will not only...

AMD's Piledriver line (which succeeds Bulldozer) has been attempting to pull back ground from Intel since its release, primarily through aggressive discounts. One of the few AMD chips that can even start to compete on performance grounds is this, the...

Now that Piledriver-based CPUs and APUs are widely available (and the FX-8350 is selling for less than $200), it's a great time to compare value-oriented chips in our favorite titles. We're also breaking out a test that conveys the latency between...

Our hero should have been released a year ago, named "FX-8150." Like any worthy debut processor of a new microarchitecture, it outperforms Phenom II X6 1100T and scores on a par with (sometimes even better than) the top Core i5 CPUs of the 2nd...

The AMD LCS that they are offering with the older FX-8150, and supposedly will be offering with the newer FX-8350, is a really nice little unit which will improve overclocking and thermal performance as compared to even a high end forced air unit.I...

AMD FX-8350 - Transistor polishing We have to admit that the first encounter with Bulldozer was a bit disappointing, whether we’re talking about our own or the general impression. Simply enough, AMD’s octa-core CPU was expected to deliver a lot, yet...

So, what have we learned? Objectively, when looking at our entire benchmarking and gaming suite, the FX-8350 is priced right where it should be. Let's start with a reminder of price. As configured, the two systems here are $220 apart, or 16.7%. As...

Does, the AMD FX-8350, flagship of the new AMD FX range, mark AMD’s return to form? There has been much progress since the launch of the FX-8150, though it has to be said that this isn’t saying all that much. In terms of performance first of all,...

Earlier this month we looked at the gaming performance in Windows 8 compared to Windows 7 , and it turns out there was no difference. Afterwards our loyal readers asked us to apply our expertise to the processor performance in Windows 8, to find out...

The FX-8350 is faster across the board than the FX-8150 but like its predecessor, it's hampered by uninspiring single-threaded performance and crummy energy efficiency. In both regards, there's a lot of ground to make up if AMD want to catch Intel....

When AMD was throwing around the specs of its first bulldozer chips we all sat up and took notice. After all, it was AMD's first new CPU technology redesign for an absolute age, and what it was planning on doing with the new bulldozer microarchitecture...

AMD has done a lot to improve the FX-8350 considering the lack of usual CPU architecture improvements. With no change in die size, TDP or production process, its managed to squeeze up to 15 per cent more performance out of this chip, all whilst...

AMD have certainly raised the game with the revised version of Bulldozer, known now as Piledriver. However, we have not seen the quoted 'up to 23%' improvement which AMD said there should be. Obviously, that is in an ideal world it may be that big of...

It is just over a year since AMD launched its flagship consumer CPU. Probably known to you as 'Bulldozer' and brought to market under the performance-intimating FX branding, AMD's grounds-up design, comprised of up to eight cores, generally failed to win...

AMD's new-for-2012 octo-core desktop processor shows improved performance with software that takes full advantage of all cores. It's a good option for upgraders with an earlier AMD FX-based system, but single-core performance and power efficiency...
