ROUND 13: TrueCrypt 7.1 Benchmark


CPU: AMD FX 8150 @ 4.8 Ghz
OS: Windows 7 x64 SP1

EDIT: AES for the FX 8150 should be 4.2 Gb/s

In the TrueCrypt 7.1 benchmark we can see that the AMD FX 8150 @ 4.8 Ghz beats an i7 990x @ 3.6 Ghz Turbo in all tests, and just trails the i7 3930k. Note that this is using Windows 7 x64 SP1. Comparing to an i7  2600k @ 3.6 Ghz Turbo, across all tests FX wins by an average of over +54%. Bulldozer's architecture is seemingly taken advantage of with this specific benchmark, but now we will look at Ubuntu Linux Performance.

Here we can see that the AMD FX 8150 performs much much better at stock settings when compared to with Windows 7. Linux seems to be taking much more advantage of Bulldozer's architecture. This just comes to show that optimization for Windows is not near completion, and shows us just what could be in store for Piledriver when it comes out.

In Linux, AMD FX @ 3.9 Ghz Turbo manages to even significantly beat overclocked (at 4.8 Ghz) performance on Windows 7, and comes much closer to performing on-par with a 3960x. It would be interesting to see overclocked performance in Linux, as I suspect its drastic.
