AMD FX-8350, Piledriver Vishera Review

CineBench R11.5

Cinebench single thread performance shows the combination of the higher clockspeed and the architectual tweak, and the FX-8350 is about 10% faster than the FX-8150. This brings the FX-8350 to the same level as the older Phenom II CPUs. One of the issues we had with the FX-8150 was its lower single thread performance and here we can see that AMD is at least able to deliver the same results as the older CPU. 

The multi-thread performance shows a 15% improvement over the FX-8150 and it is faster than the Core i7 2600K.

TrueCrypt 7.1

When comes to data encryption, FX-8350 shows about 8% improvement over the FX-8150. This puts the FX-8350 neck and neck against the Intel Core i7 3770K. 

Given the right workload, the FX-8350 actually can be a very powerful chip as it shown with our TrueCrypt benchmark. Here we can see that the chip delivers about 10~15% higher performance over the Core i3 3770K.

ASUS ROG Zephyrus G15 – AMD and Nvidia in sweet harmony

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.
