AMD FX 8150 Black Edition 8-Core Review (with Gigabyte 990FXA-UD7)

Aliens V Predator has proved to be a big seller since the release and Sega have taken the franchise into new territory after taking it from Sierra. AVP is a Direct X 11 supported title and delivers not only advanced shadow rendering but high quality tessellation for the cards on test today.

To test the cards we used a 1080p resolution with DX11, Texture Quality Very High, MSAA Samples 1, 16 af, ambient occulsion on, shadow complexity high, motion blur on. We use this with most of our graphics card testing so cards are comparible throughout reviews.

Performance is neck and neck between the last generation X6 1100T and the Core i7 2600k, scoring an average of 61.3 fps. The FX8150 performs at the bottom of the pile in this benchmark, although the differences are marginal.
