AMD FX Destroys i7 980X in Properly Optimized SHA1 code

As shown in this review, the AMD FX 8150 is 20% faster than Intel i7 980X in the CPU Hash benchmark. As the benchmark page explains:

This test measures CPU performance using the SHA1 hashing algorithm defined in the Federal Information Processing Standards Publication 180-3. The code behind this benchmark method is written in Assembly, and it is optimized for every popular AMD, Intel and VIA processor core variant by utilizing the appropriate MMX, MMX+/SSE, SSE2, SSSE3, or AVX instruction set extension.

Since SuperPI and Cinebench are such a widely used tools, AMD should spend some effort and optimize them for AMD FX.

Only in Shirakook land does ONE benchmark a winner make.


Fucking douche.

Stop AMD-fanboy idiocy: Mention the Intel Timna processor

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Timna/

Intel Timna, a processor with an integrated memory controller, were rolling off Intel assembly lines back in the year 2000 before it was cancelled. It also had integrated graphics incorporated, far before AMD had any plans about "Fusion".

It's funny the first few times reading moronic comments like "Intel copied AMD" and "AMD is the one that innovates" but I think enough is enough.
