AMD FX-8350, Piledriver Vishera Review

PCMARK07

If we use PCMark 07 as our sole benchmark to assess a CPU’s performance, we can see that the FX-8350 is about 7% faster than the FX-8150. It is still falling behind the Core i5 2500K by 6%. 

Looking at the lightweight task, we can see that the single thread performance for the CPU has improved, and the FX-8350 is now faster than the older Phenom CPU but AMD still lags significantly behind Intel’s Sandy Bridge.

 The rest of the 3DMark 07 benchmark suit mimics the overall score where we see the FX-8350 is about 5~8% faster than the FX-8150. The Core i5 2500K is faster in every test where it is either slightly higher or up to 10% depending on the workload.

For a long time the combination Intel/Nvidia was the norm for powerful gaming laptops.  AMD has tried to break in to the market but not had much success. The laptop I am looking at today, ASUS ROG Zephyrus G15, is another challenger to the old partnership. It comes with AMD:s latest mobile part, the Ryzen 7 4800HS combined with a Nvidia RTX2060 Max-Q, all packed into a nice slim laptop with a 15" 240 Hz 1080P IPS-screen.
