AMD FX-8350 "Vishera" Linux Benchmarks

First up are a number of NASA's NAS Parallel Benchmarks, which are very computational intense and written in Fortran with using the OpenMP builds for multi-threaded handling.

Starting with the NPB "Embarrassingly Parallel" test, the AMD FX-8350 at its stock speeds comes up slightly short of the Intel Core i7 3770K "Ivy Bridge" processor. However, when overclocked to 4.60GHz the eight-core Piledriver CPU is able to beat out the i7-3770K by a very small margin! This is rather promising with the AMD FX-8350 set to debut at a significantly lower price than the high-end i7-3770K Ivy Bridge.

For the Lower-Upper Gauss-Seidel solver within NPB, the FX-8350 continued to perform extremely well against the Intel Core i7 3770K. This is quite interesting since even AMD marketing under Windows only pairs the FX-8350 as going against the Core i7 3570K, not the i7-3770K.

The FX-8350 results also show a nice performance improvement over the previous-generation FX-8150 Bulldozer at stock speeds.
