FX-6300 Game Requirement Analysis

FX-6300 is a high-end CPU based on the 32nm Piledriver architecture.


It offers 6 Physical Cores (6 Logical), initially clocked at 3.5GHz, which may go up to 4.1GHz and 8MB of L3 Cache.
Among its many features, Turbo Core and Virtualization are activated and the clock multiplier is unlocked, meaning it can be overclocked easily.


The processor DOES NOT integrated any graphics. and has a rated board TDP of 95W.


It is a powerful Hexa Core whose performance is good. It's thus capable of running most applications smoothly without any problem.

Both CPUs are fine for gaming, this one is slightly better at multi-threaded games, but the g4560 is so much newer and the platform has more features. Whatever you choose, you will be fine. Don't forget tho, you can oc this chip with a good cooler, while the g4560 cannot be oced. Look at benchmarks and choose whatever makes you happy

Cheaper than what? The G4560? That's not true. The Pentium is about 8% worse in Passmark than the i3. The recommended price for i3 6100 is $117 while Pentium G4560 is supposed to be going for $64. In reality, resellers are pricing it at around $100. Is the 7% (theoretical) increase worth the -$17? Probably not.

But… The i3 is sh!t… You get virtually identical performance from the Pentium for less money. Why would you recommend the i3, I don't understand.

At the time of this writing the FX 6300 is only $80 on Amazon. It is a killer deal for a cheap build for house use or games. But anyone's money would be better spent buying a AMD R5 1400 over the FX6300 at this point since the future for the FX is getting rather bleak. But between the two you mentioned the FX 6300 is a much better buy unless you're using it purely for home documents:no GPU needed.

I'm sorry for this question guys, but it bothers me all the time when i am thinking about multi core multi threads hyperthreading etc. My question is, how do you guys define multi core? For example this cpu that has a 3.5Ghz for 6core.

Does it work or perform like 3.5x6 or like 21ghz for any application running? Or it works like it depends on app running like it will open 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th core when needed.

When you have a multi-core CPU, you basically have several CPUs (let's say 4 -a 4 core CPU has 4 cores); If it has multi-threading, it means you have 4 real CPUs + 4 virtual ones, that operate with -60-70% of the power of the real CPUs. If the application you are running has processes, that can be separated from one-another, each process would be taken up by 1 of your CPUs (real or virtual one)

But if the application's processes are tied to one another (to get to process 2, you need to finish process 1 first, for example) you do not benefit from having more cores (virtual or otherwise) - in this case, you benefit from having a single powerful core. Most games up to now were not very well optimized to use more than 4 cores (even less actually) but now they are getting better for this HW

CPU performance is not as simple as cores*GHz=perf. There are a lot more factors to it, like ipc (instructions per clock) which essentially means how much stuff can a cpu do for every Hz. The only way to really know it to see reviews that show which is cpu is the best for what you want to do, there is no absolute measure. Fx cpus have low ipc, but due to the high core count, the perform really well on multi-threaded applications like newer games.

AMD's processors based on the Bulldozer are trash. High power draw and awful single core as well as multicore performance (especially considering this being a "hexa" core). It's a good CPU considering the price but blaming the bad performance of the Bulldozer/Steamroller/Piledriver architecture on devs is stupid.

Lay off the caps lock, it makes you look like a goof. So does rabidly defending an inanimate object. It most certainly does not perform better than Sandy Bridge i5s, not even close. It's more comparable to a 1st gen i7. Instead of impulse replying to me again, go on the internet and look up article from the time of release. Interesting read: https://www.theregister.co.uk/2015/11/06/amd_sued_cores/
