I honestly don't know what to say. As long as no throttling has happened under windows 8 it has to be a driver of some sort. I can tell you the apu builds I have done with windows 8 have all impressed me. The only thing that ticked me off in early builds was steams big picture would crash in windows 8 on an apu system.
My 8350 , has the same core design with a crossfire build as well and I just do not get this dive in results going to windows 8. If you do figure this out please post your findings I would be interested what happened.
Something else to do is save your bios settings and run stock and see if its any different Between the OSes, throttling can kick in for funny reasons. You might have already done this, I am mobile right now and I can't remember if you had done this.
