@Kosusko , This is what I am talking about. I know you don't have recent hardware, that not your fault, as you most likely don't have the budget for it.You're desperately trying to defend this processor's performance, comparing to your FX-8300 under-clocked to 2.7 GHz saying how great it would be for casual office use and light gaming.
The FX series was one of AMD's biggest blunders, and early chips like Bulldozer and Piledriver had worse IPC than the Phenom II predecessor released in 2008. This 2020 CPU has IPC equivalent to that of CPU designs released 12 years ago, is running at clock speeds from 12 years ago and is consuming power like CPUs from ~8 years ago.
I had an FX processor and it wasn't great at games at 4.1 GHz - at 2.7 GHz it'd be downright miserable. The only thing the Zhaoxin has going for it is lots of cores.
The problem is, that you keep trying to show all these benchmarks of slow hardware. Its not exciting. Just read the foums and be happy for the day you can but something new, fast and exciting, but posting benchmarks of old or slow hardware is just annoying.
