In the other straight CPU performance tests in Cinebench it shows a very slight advantage, though the improvements in single-threaded performance aren't as pronounced as with the FX-8350.

The new version of CINEBENCH includes the ability to more accurately test the industry’s latest hardware, including systems with up to 64 processor threads, and the testing environment better reflects the expectations of today’s production demands.

We would think that this would translate to similar results in the SMP benchmark in Cinebench.

One thing we noticed when running Cinebench is that CPU-Z reported that the processor went up to 5240MHz a couple times.
