Round 4: PassMark CPU Score
Lets just get to the nitty-gritty shall we?
First Corner - intel i5 2500k @ 4.8 Ghz, ASUS P4P67 Pro, 8 Gb DDR3
Second Corner - intel i7 2600k @ 4.8 Ghz, Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD4-B3, 8 Gb DDR3
Third Corner - AMD 1100t @ 4.2 Ghz 8 Gb DDR3
Fourth Corner - AMD 8150 FX @ 4.8 Ghz, ASUS Crosshair V, 4 Gb DDR3
First Place - intel i7 2600k @ 4.8 Ghz - 107.5 % Performance
Second Place - AMD FX 8150 @ 4.8 Ghz - 100.0% Performance
Third Place - intel i5 2500k@ 4.8 Ghz - 81.4% Performance
Fourth Place -AMD 1100t @ 4.2 Ghz - 73.2% Performance
Intels monstrous leap over AMD in CPU Integer Math seems to be the game changer, with 63.4% gain on the FX 8150. But FX manages to beat its older phenom II brother by a whopping 74%.
The OC'd AMD FX 8150 beats its intel i7 2600k rival in five out of eight tests, however narrowly loses in the final score. In FPU Score its a dead tie between the 2600k and FX, with the 1100t and i5 2500k lagging behind.
Comparing FX to the i5 2500k in this benchmark, AMD wins in seven out of the possible eight tests, and only loses in the CPU integer math test.
We can really see Bulldozer shine in this benchmark when compared to the older 1100t, and it manages to be right at intels door with performance significantly higher than its intel counterpart, the i5 2500k.
