AMD FX-8350 "Vishera" Linux Benchmarks

The AMD FX-8350 was tested under Linux at its stock frequency, a base of 4.0GHz, and then when overclocked to 4.6GHz. Pushing the FX-8350 to 4.60GHz with its unlocked multiplier was extremely easy and required virtually no effort. With additional time and tuning, I'm confident the FX-8350 could be pushed much harder, but even 4.60GHz isn't a bad starting point for this initial Linux testing of the eight-core Piledriver processor.

All benchmarking was facilitated in a fully automated and reproducible way using the open-source cross-platform Phoronix Test Suite benchmarking framework.

The initial benchmarks are mostly the heavy CPU-focused tests common to Linux while gaming and graphics benchmarks and other performance metrics will be published in future Phoronix articles. There will also be additional tests looking at the Piledriver compiler tuning, compiler comparisons, and other interesting tests of interest to Linux users from the AMD FX-8350 Vishera.
