FX 8120


Description
We need your help: we don't have results in all modes. If you have a 8120 and want to help us to complete the stats, you just have to run the benchmark at stock frequency (no oc) in modes FPU, SSE, and validate the results. You don't have to register and the whole process will take less than 3 minutes per mode.

The FX 8120 is a cpu manufactured by AMD that was released on October 2011. This model has 8 Zambezi cores , runs at 3100 MHz as base frequency and has a a thermal design power of 125 W.

The 8120 has 128 kB of cache L1, 4x2048 kB of cache L2 and 8192 kB of cache L3.

Monothread performance graph
Monothread performance graphics gives the performance vs time. They are useful to measure the time it takes to the CPU to reach the maximum performance.

Usually, CPU's performance will be steady during these tests but if it has a slow frequency strategy, the first samples will show a lower score.

Multithread performance graph
Multithread graphs measure the performance against a heavy load during certain time.

If CPU's TDP doesn't limit the frequency and the machine is properly cooled, performance should remain steady vs time. Otherwise, the performance score will oscillate or decrease over time.
