Intel Core i7-3770K vs AMD FX-8150: 4.6GHz Duel

Intel Core i7-3770K vs AMD FX-8150: 4.6GHz Duel

From VR-Zone comes an interesting review that made the most powerful desktop microprocessors from and AMD: Core i7-3770K (released on April 23, 2012) and FX-8150 (released October 12, 2011); both overclocked to 4.6GHz.

For this comparison used the following settings:

  • Motherboard Asus Maximus Formula V (Z77, LGA 1155).
  • Motherboard Asus Crosshair Formula V (990FX, AM3 +).
  • 16GB Memory GSkill DDR3-2400 TridentX 10-12-12-31 2T.
  • Two video cards Radeon HD 7970 in CrossFireX Edition GHz.
  • OCZ Vertex SSD 240GB 3 Max IOPS.

The operating system used was Windows 7 x64, which was updated with all latest patches and updates, including patches for Bulldozer CMT .

Without further ado here your test:

To no surprise that the Intel core i7-3770K (U.S. $349) is imposed to the microprocessor AMD FX-8150 (U.S. $199) for a 47.25% return on average over the same frequency, performance is not worth its price 75.37% higher, even staying on the grounds that the performance difference between its default frequency is somewhat lower.

Part of this advantage in performance per cycle is obtained thanks to Intel’s HyperThreading technology, which enjoys broad support in Windows operating systems from Microsoft and many Windows applications, while it is expected that the operating system Microsoft Windows 8 is the first operating system with native support for CMT technology of AMD CPUs based on bulldozer micro-architecture, but CMT will only make minor improvements in performance, nothing to change shown by the review of VR-Zone.
