    Default First Bulldozer benches from AMD



    First they showed a comparison between a new unspecified AMD FX processor and an unspecified Intel processor i5 Sandy Bridge, with the help of the program Handbrake a video of 5 minutes is converted to H.264 video in SD resolution. The AMD FX processor with eight cores perform this function with an average of 223 frames per second, the i5 with four cores came in at 188 fps. Both systems will be comparable in price according to AMD, which it wants to show that AMD a better price / performance offering. That may be the case, but who has a more negative view would conclude that AMD is looking to double the number of cores needs to less than 20% better performance available.

    In the second demonstration showed up one game in three Dirt 2560x1600 resolution, running on two Radeon HD 6790 cards in Crossfire. In one system, the cards are combined with an Intel Core i7 980X, in the second system with an AMD FX processor. The Intel machine could produce an average of 80.9 fps, the AMD machine averaged 82.8 fps. The much cheaper AMD FX processor is faster than the Core i7 980X - if you want to show - though we should really stick through it: Dirt 3 to this resolution and the chosen card is very GPU thus limited. The extra 2 fps of the AMD-101 system can be explained ways, all of which are not necessarily traceable to CPU performance.

    For real benchmarks, we'll have to wait for the AMD FX processors actually available. Fortunately, that probably will not take too long.

    However revealed also a working laptop with AMD processor Trinity, the next generation AMD APU based on Bulldozer cores and a next generation GPU. Trinity middle of next year will reach the market.

    Why didn't they compare the FX chip with a SB core i7 instead of using the SB core i5 ? They should have also used the newer 990X in the 2nd test, I've owned the 980X and the 990X the for some reason 990X runs cooler, and it is a little faster.

    sounds about right ha ha an i5 for a comparison LAMO and i would be willing to bet that the i5 was running at a lower clock speed.

    Pure Overclock also attended Bill Gates....There was no gambit of head to head benchmarks. Just product positioning and architecture. The big question was how AMD's actual cores perform against Intel's hyperthreading. This is where the gambit of benchmarks will show. Bulldozer is well positioned against Sandybridge and will compete against the 990X. Exactly where it falls in the pecking order has not been shown.

    AMD fans show a lot of enthusiasm whereas Intel fans show pessimism. Unfortunately, we have to wait......

    I will have a full benchmark suite in the Pure Overclock review. I already have the Phenom II 1090T, Sandybridge 2600K, benchmarks at stock speed and 4GHz with the same memory, PSU and 2 x 6970's. I will benchmark Bulldozer with same stuff and have it in review.

    Ohh forgot. The main objective is the 4GHz benchmarks. We will have a core for core at the same overclock of 4GHz which will be the fairest comparison in any review......

    Most reviews do stock speed vs stock speed. When Bloomfield arrived, the stock speed on the 920 was 2.66GHz and the Phenom II 955 was 3.4GHz. At even stock, Bloomfield kicked the Phenom II ass to another planet yet core for core at the same speed was even worse... Most benchmark comparisons were not core for core at same speeds. Stay tuned to Pure Overclock for a great review.

    BTW Gates, Intel is my main rig...... I just hope AMD makes a splash with Bulldozer. The competition will keep Intels pricing in check...

    Bias comparison IMO.

    they used two chips with similar pricing in this case. My best guess is 2500K vs. FX-8120. 2fps means nothing in real world gaming.

    Well, we are all know AMD provides best value performance products. They have stop going after the King of the hill in performance long time ago, they are going for the bottom line now.

    I agree. Performance seekers are 2% of the market and that does not add to your bottom line although higher margins lie with us suckers. Deton sees the big picture. Even if Bulldozer does not beat Sandybridge but is close, AMD's Target is mainstream and we saw a great intro in price vs performance with Llano which is vastly under rated by us Overclocking junkies. Bulldozer is a giant step in taking marketplace with good margins
