AMD FX-8370E 95W “Piledriver” Octa-Core Processor Review

OpenCL Benchmarks – Compubench and Luxmark


Compubench CL

CompuBench is a unified performance benchmarking tool that gives realistic feedback on the performance of various compute API implementations used for parallel programming of heterogeneous systems. Based on CLBenchmark, the first professional OpenCL benchmark on the market, it compares CPUs, GPUs and accelerators of desktop and mobile devices by their compute performance characteristics.

In Compubench, power management kicks in to push the FX 8370E behind the competition. Only the A10-7850K quad core is slower in our testing.

Luxmark

LuxMark is a OpenCL benchmark tool. The idea for the program was conceived in 2009 by Jean-Francois ‘Jromang’ Romang. The idea was quite simple, wrap SLG inside an easy to use graphical user interface and use it as a benchmark for OpenCL. Download here.

In Luxmark we see the FX 8370E is about 10% slower than the FX 8350.
