SiSoft Sandra 2012:

We ran the Sandra CPU arithmetic test to get a performance reading of the ALU and FPU components of the CPU cores, reporting using industry standard Dhrystone and Whetstone units.

Below you can see the percentile differences of the AMD FX 8350 and the other tested components:

FX 8350 vs. X6 1100T FX 8150 'i5 2500K' i7 2600K
Dhrystone +53% +9 +50% -20%
Whetstone +22% +11% -16% -22%

Next up is the Processor Multi-Media test, testing the CPU side SIMD capabilities for media manipulation, reporting results in megapixels per second.

FX 8350 vs. X6 1100T FX 8150 'i5 2500K' i7 2600K
Integer +247% +11 +8% +30%
Float +47% +9% +1% -35%
Double +44% +9 -5% -38%
Float Double +46% +9% -2% -36%

Finalwire AIDA64

We ran the AIDA64 benchmarks FPU VP8 and FPU Julia to examine the floating point performance, reporting in a numerical score result.

FX 8350 vs. X6 1100T FX 8150 'i5 2500K' i7 2600K
VP8 +3% +17 +5% -7%
