Test System

Today's tests will be conducted on our ASUS M3A32-MVP motherboard which uses the 790FX chipset. We will be comparing the X3 8750 and the Athlon 4850e CPUs directly with the 9350e just to see who has the better option.


We did test at both stock and overclocked speeds with the X3 running 2.6GHz, the 9350e at 2.38GHz and 4850e at just over 2.8GHz.

First off, it's into memory. The X4 and X3 both score the same at stock speeds due to the same NB/memory divider ratio.


The 4850e falls behind due to the older K8 architecture memory controller. At overclocked speeds the 9350e has a higher FSB so it manages a slightly higher bandwidth in the write test, though this is only noticed in the write test.
