First Bulldozer benchmarks leaked

Presentation slides above reveals performance of eight-core FX series CPU paired up with Radeon HD 6670 graphics card

Followed by recent AMD FX series processor and A series APU launch schedule leakage, same source presents first official performance numbers for these products. Latest AMD FX line-up based on Bulldozer architecture will include eight-core, six-core and quad-core processors.

Presentation slides above reveal performance of eight-core FX series CPU (the actual model number and clocks are not disclosed) paired up with Radeon HD 6670 graphics card. According to the graph, such tandem leaves Intel Core i7-2600K with integrated graphics processor standing. Perhaps, both systems have comparable costs. If that so, then you can estimate AMD FX CPU value by manipulating Intel Core i7-2600K and AMD Radeon HD 6670 prices.

In PCMark Vantage test AMD FX and Core i7-2600K processors are on par. In 3DMark Vantage P benchmark AMD platform outperforms its rival by having more powerful graphics part — Radeon HD 6670. Note that AMD FX + Radeon HD 6670 system is just slightly faster than Phenom II X6 1100T + Radeon HD 6670 combo.

Other test results represent AMD A-seris APU performance, where chip maker emphasizes compute efficiency of CPU+GPU. On the other hand, performance/price ratio should effect product market promotion more than just bare performance numbers.
