Tech ARP H.264 encoding benchmarks!! FX is back!


Tech ARP H.264 encoding First Pass / Second Pass Results


AMD FX 8150 @ 4.81 Ghz 24/7 Stable (23.5 x 204)
Promlatech Genesis - 3 x Scythe Sflex 135mm
G.Skill 2200 Mhz Cl7 DDR3
XFX 6990 stock (830/1250) > OC (990/1500) 2 Hr Stable (Ungine Heaven 2.5) Catalyst 12.1 Preview
Arctic Twin Turbo 6990 Cooler
OCZ Revodrive 3 X2 240 Gb
HAF 932 - 10 x Additional Scythe Fans
OCZ 1000w ZX Gold PSU

First Pass Results (Single Core Performance) : 

In this benchmark, the single core performance of an overclocked AMD FX 8150 CPU @ 4.8 Ghz is better than a 3.7 Ghz (tubro) i5 2500k, but worse than a 4.0 Ghz i5 2500k.

Second Pass Results (Multi-threaded Performance) :
When all cores are used FX shines! Performance is well over a  i7 2600k @ 4.5 Ghz, but less than 2 fps shy of a i7 2600k @ 5.0 Ghz. I am not sure about the low 5.18 ghz 2600k score =S... but its well over that aswell. It should also be noted that 3960x at 3.8 Ghz Turbo is not much faster than a 4.8 Ghz FX 8150 in this specific test.
This benchmark is well designed to take advantage of Bulldozer's architecture, but what about others? 
Tomorrow 3DMark 11 scores! Will FX fail to keep up with Sandy Bridge? Will my highly overclocked 6990 bottleneck?
