Synthetic & System benchmarks
Here we see the 3200+ and 3400+ trading barbs across board. I was surprised the FX-53 didn’t clean house here, but then again I just use Sandra as a reference. Of interest are the comparative scores of the 3200+ to its 0.13u counterparts. Small gains are seen pretty much across the board leading me to believe the core enhancements that were supposed to be implemented, did indeed find their way into these cores.
PC Mark is showing the FX-53 to have a slight lead at 2GHz; however at 2.5GHz the 3200+ results are promising.
I do really not believe what I’m seeing! The FX-53 again takes top honor at 2GHz levels, whereas at 2.5GHz the 3200+ again is the leader. I can say though that SuperPI 1M was run 2 times on each system, best of each score was taken. If I were to run the FX-53 a few more runs I’m sure I could have gotten a 33second run out of it as well.
Here we see why the FX-53 remains the flagship CPU. No reason the $850 CPU shouldn’t win this one right! Pay attention to the lead the 3200+ has over the 3500+ at equivalent speeds though showing a good performance advantage. When overclocked the 3400+ suffers, lack of ram bandwidth as this platform is only single channel and is limited to 208mhz /DDR416 due to ram and board limitations with the ram used.
Onto the gaming benchmarks ->
