Default AMD FX-8150 CPU Review: Can Bulldozer Raze The Playing Field? @Hi Tech Legion

AMD’s new FX-8150 is the first release in their new Bulldozer line featuring an all new and radically different architecture. The AMD FX-8150 is the first eight core desktop processor to market, but there is much more going on beneath the skin. The eight cores of the FX-8150 are built into fours modules on the chip, each with two physical processing cores. These two cores share resources in a way previously unseen, sharing not only L2 cache, but FPUs, as well. This makes for a highly efficient unit capable of incredible multithreaded capabilities. In addition, the FX-8150 is a Black Edition CPU with an unlocked multiplier. This obviously makes for easier overclocking, and the FX-8150 is designed with extreme overclocking headroom in mind. Recently, AMD set a world overclocking record with a Bulldozer CPU with the OC topping out at an astounding 8.4GHz. This, naturally, is not what should be expected from an ordinary home build, but it does show that the FX-8150 has extreme overclocking potential.
