ROUND 13: TrueCrypt 7.1 Benchmark
CPU: AMD FX 8150 @ 4.8 Ghz
OS: Windows 7 x64 SP1

|EDIT: AES for the FX 8150 should be 4.2 Gb/s|
In the TrueCrypt 7.1 benchmark we can see that the AMD FX 8150 @ 4.8 Ghz beats an i7 990x @ 3.6 Ghz Turbo in all tests, and just trails the i7 3930k. Note that this is using Windows 7 x64 SP1. Comparing to an i7 2600k @ 3.6 Ghz Turbo, across all tests FX wins by an average of over +54%. Bulldozer's architecture is seemingly taken advantage of with this specific benchmark, but now we will look at Ubuntu Linux Performance.
CPU: AMD FX 8150 @ 3.9 Ghz Turbo
OS: Ubuntu 11.10
|AMD FX 8150 @ 3.9 Ghz Turbo|
In Linux, AMD FX @ 3.9 Ghz Turbo manages to even significantly beat overclocked (at 4.8 Ghz) performance on Windows 7, and comes much closer to performing on-par with a 3960x. It would be interesting to see overclocked performance in Linux, as I suspect its drastic.
