With a new processor in hand, we haven't got any other boards to compare our FX-8150 against at the moment. It's only going to be a matter of time, though, till we build up a database.
With that said, we have today thrown our FX-8150 and MSI 990FXA-GD80 up against two boards with two different CPUs. One is the recently looked at ASRock A75M-ITX with our A8-3850. While the board may be small, it showed us performance at stock that sat inline with boards twice its size.
The other board we've got here is the ASUS P8H67-I which comes paired with our 2600k. We've already got a fairly good idea with what's going on in terms of the performance of our FX-8150 CPU compared to these other processors, but let's take a look in our normal motherboard line-up of tests.
Before we close out, though, as already said, we'd normally also cover overclocking here, but our FX-8150 has fallen into a deep slumber which it refuses to get out of. For that reason, we'll only be testing the FX-8150 at stock today.
We did a bit of overclocking on the board that saw our FX-8150 sit in around the 4.6 - 4.7GHz mark, but unfortunately we didn't get the chance to run a full line up of tests. Normally we'd be a bit inclined to blame the motherboard for the death of our CPU, or ourselves, but there seems to be some issues with the FX-8150 as I've heard multiple people now also having a dead chip in other motherboards and it seems that it could be related to a spike in CPU voltages when overclocking.
No doubt as we find out more about it, we'll let you know, but I think for the time being we might try and avoid overclocking of the FX-8150.
Let's get started!
