This review is from: AMD FX-8150 Zambezi 8-Core 3.6GHz Socket AM3+ 125W Desktop Processor FD8150FRGUBOX
Much faster than my old Core 2 Quad. Yes, I know that's going to be a big DUH, but it is.
Very easy to get a stable oc with my Asus Crosshair V Form. Running at 4.2 stable. (with liquid cooling, of course).
Cheap for the budget builder.
None that I can see. Maybe not as fast as an i5 or i7, but wayyyy below the price range for those.
There are now the 2nd gen octa-cores out from AMD, but this one was the ground breaker. Being this cpu was at the core of my very first solo-build, I'm very happy with the results. For those of you that care about Win7 ratings: it scored 7.7 on base clock. 3.8 gives you a full 7.9. PerfTest rates it rather high too.
