FFTE also did poorly on the AMD side.
Finally when moving back to HMMer for a molecular biology test case, the FX-8350 returns to being competitive against the Intel hardware, particularly the i7-3770K Ivy Bridge CPU.
MAFFT was another case where the AMD Piledriver processor was competitive with the high-end Intel Core i7 Ivy Bridge.
AMD CPUs tend to traditionally do very well with the popular John The Ripper benchmark. With the Blowfish test case in JTR, the FX-8350 was significantly ahead of the i7-3770K.
