AMD FX-9590 AM3+ Processor Performance Review
AIDA64 is a full 64-bit benchmark and test suite utilizing MMX, 3DNow! and SSE instruction set extensions, and will scale up to 32 processor cores. An enhanced 64-bit System Stability Test module is also available to stress the whole system to its limits. For legacy processors all benchmarks and the System Stability Test are available in 32-bit versions as well.
The Queen benchmark is a simple integer benchmark focuses on the branch prediction capabilities and the misprediction penalties of the CPU. The Photoworxx benchmark performs common photo and image editing tasks. The Queen benchmark seems to be made specifically for the AMD processors. They scale right up the list, with all of them thrashing the i5-4670; including the A10 APU. The Photoworxx tests bring things back into perspective and show a good estimation of processing that is very common today. In the Photoworxx test, the FX-8370E and the higher clocked FX-8370 both outpace the i5-4670, albeit by much slimmer margins than in the Queen test. The FX-8370 actually out-scores the FX-9590 CPU in the Photoworxx.
The final test on this chart is a floating point test. Julia tests single-point precision (32-bit). As you can see above, the AMD FX processors are no match for the competition when it comes to floating point performance.
This integer benchmark measures combined CPU and memory subsystem performance through the public ZLib compression library. CPU ZLib test uses only the basic x86 instructions, and it is HyperThreading, multi-processor (SMP) and multi-core (CMP) aware. AMD has made great strides in the compression test over the last few processor revisions. In this case, the FX-9590, as well as the FX-8370E and FX-8370, all do very well compared to the i5-4670.
