Based on 16,220 user benchmarks.  Devices: 178BFBFF00600F12, 178BFBFF00600F20 Model: AMD FX(tm)-8150 Eight-Core Processor

The AMD FX-8150 is the earliest eight core variant in AMD's flagship FX series. The FX-8150 was released in October 2011 and at that time it superseded the Phenom 1100T. Comparing the 1100T and FX-8150 shows that the newer FX-8150 has roughly the same single and dual core speed but, thanks to its extra two cores, pulled ahead of its predecessor by 15% in multi-core tests. The performance improvements over the 1100T are accompanied by an improved manufacturing process which reduced lithography from 45 to 32 nanometres; consequently both processors have the same maximum TDP of 125 Watts. Thanks to its eight cores the FX-8150 has strong multi-core performance but its single-core core speeds are still relatively weak compared to similarly priced Intel chips. [Mar '14 CPUPro]
