AMD FX 8150 - 8120 - 6100 and 4100 performance review
Yesterday AMD released the FX series Zambezi - Bulldozer based processor. Everybody has been focusing on that most high-end AMD FX 8150 processor. However there where three other processors released.
This article is nothing more then a performance overview of all four processors released yesterday. So this article is basically a big performance chart, for the architecture specifications and conclusions we urge you to read our AMD FX 8150 review. This article is a performance overview.
The processors added into the chart are the eight core AMD FX 8120, the six-core AMD FX 6100 and the four core AMD FX 4100.
These processors are all based on the same Bulldozer architecture yet have a different numbers of cores with accompanying cache's, let's recap the four processors that have been launched first:
So the top of the range part, FX-8150, is clocked at 3.6 GHz, with a TDP of 125W. Next in line is the FX-8120, clocked at 3.1 GHz.
The sole 6-core CPU will be FX-6100 at 3.3 GHz while the 4-core CPU will be FX-4100 clocked at 3.6 GHz, interestign as for less threaded applications that 4100 would be faster..
Both feature a 95W TDP, and will compete up against the Core i5 series. All CPUs feature 8MB L3 cache. This suggests that FX-6100 and FX-4100 are simply Zambezi processors with 1 module or 2 modules disabled, respectively.
AMD FX 8350 processor review We review the AMD FX 8350 processor. Also known as the Vishera generation with PileDriver cores, today FX 8300 series is tested. It is AMD's most high-end and processor series to date, yet will remain an affordable processor series.

AMD FX 8150 processor review We review the AMD FX 8150 processor today. Previously know as Zambezi with its Bulldozer cores, today the FX series is released. It will be AMD's most high-end and complicated to fab processor series to date, yet will remain an affordable processor series. As you probably know, the product tested today has eight (!) physical CPU cores, it will have a base clock of 3600 MHz, may Turbo towards 3900 MHZ and can peak a thread or two at a cool 4200 MHz. And that makes the FX series a multi-threaded monster. You can read our review right here.
