More Linux Benchmarks Of The AMD FX Vishera

For those wanting more benchmarks of the AMD FX-8350 Eight-Core "Vishera" processor, here's some additional Ubuntu 12.10 results.

To OpenBenchmarking.org today I uploaded more results beyond all of the data offered in the comparison of my AMD FX-8350 Linux CPU review.

While in that review I compared the FX-8350 Eight-Core processor to several different Intel and AMD CPUs, these new results uploaded to OpenBenchmarking.org are just some standalone numbers. However, there's more than 100 new Linux benchmark results from this Piledriver-based AMD processor.

The result files for these new AMD Linux performance results are AMD FX-8350 Piledriver Desktop and AMD FX-8350 Vishera Ubuntu Linux Desktop. With them being standalone results, you either need to run your own comparison either through OpenBenchmarking.org or from your own hardware with the Phoronix Test Suite, or look through the ten-page review of the FX-8350 from this morning.

If you want to see how your hardware stacks up to these new benchmark results, it's just a matter of installing the open-source Phoronix Test Suite software and then executing either phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1210236-RA-AMDFXPILE22 or phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1210239-RA-AMDVISHER08 for running a fully automated side-by-side comparison. The Phoronix Test Suite is able to take care of the entire process from downloading and installing all of the benchmarks in the same manner on your Linux/OSX/BSD/Solaris system, running all of the tests in the same manner as the way I did from the AMD hardware, and then merging the results next to this existing data. It's really easy and fully reproducible!

If going through the ten-page review is too much for you, subscribe to Phoronix Premium to see the entire AMD FX-8350 review on a single page and without any advertisements! Subscribing to Phoronix Premium also helps ensure further FX-8350 testing goes on extensively and any test requests you might have are more likely to be honoured through the forums or Twitter.

AMD FX-8350 Eight-Core Linux benchmarks actually started surfacing early yesterday on OpenBenchmarking.org from third-party sources prior to the NDA/embargo expiration at midnight. Those benchmarks from an unknown source are using a Gigabyte motherboard and running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS rather than Ubuntu 12.10.

Through OpenBenchmarking.org's Cekora Engine are also other AMD FX-8350 reviews, albeit from Windows-focused publications.
