Bulldozer and Hotfixes

December 21, 2012

So many were talking about hotfixes for bulldozer. And that’s why I decided to test them in order to see, if they really helps.

“Microsoft has released two updates that optimize the performance of AMD Bulldozer CPUs on Windows 7-based or Windows Server 2008 R2-based computers.”

NOTE: Only this tests were done at Bulldozer FX-8120 stock speed of 3.1GHz!
