AMD FX-8150 Multi-GPU Gameplay Performance Review
FX 8150 at 4.6GHz struggled to outperformed 2500K at 4.8GHz in 2 way & 3 way SLi gaming, some games had SLi issues with FX 8150 due to bad microarchitecture design.
So dont get your hope up if you are waiting for Piledriver miracle, it wont happen as AMD will still lagging far behind, AMD will rely on yet more automaticalled design more than they did on Bulldozer as they going to lay off 1400 employees by 2012. Piledriver could have up to 15% improvement with 1/3 come from Turbo mode, 1/3 come from IMC and 1/3 come from IPC.
