I am a little confused on this "benchmarking" or testing. The only way to truely test the FX against any CPU is by using the exact same hardware as if you have each chip and mothetrboard and run the same frequencues(core for core) the same memory at the same frequencies and timings, the same PSU, the same hard drive. It seems your taking someone elses results and combining them with yours? Help me out on this one.
I ran benchmarks on the FX-8150 and compared it to the 2500K and 2500K with everything the same except motherboard and CPU. The 2600K owned the FX-8150 in just about every category and beat the 2500K in some. All your graphs are confusing. Make a spread sheet so one can understand better like this.
I have a 2500K, 2600K, FX-8150 and a 3930X OTW. If yall want a perfect direct comparison, let me know. In a few weeks I can run benchies on all. make a list(not too long) what benchmarks to run.
Here are a few benchmarks I ran while playing a movie, downloading a move and compressing a file. This is where the FX chips shine:
