FX-4170 Game Requirement Analysis

FX-4170 is a middle-class CPU based on the 32nm Bulldozer architecture.


It offers 4 Physical Cores (4 Logical), initially clocked at 4.2GHz, which may go up to 4.3GHz 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 125W.


It offers average performance. It will therefore become a bottleneck in today's demanding games.

Ok now this is weird; it is said that the i3 3240 is a powerful dual-core processor, yet it is 3% worst than this quad-core than only provides average performance. Is there something wrong?

Could anyone tell me if fx-4200 is a lot better than 4170, and what would be the difference by % on the website, 4200 is not listed in the specs here, I think it might only be for premade computers, if anyone could help me with the performance and comparison.

It's not just about clock frequency,it's about the efficency of the architecture.Plus, when it comes to actual gaming performace it depends highly on the optimization level of the application meaning that there is a vast percentage of games that can only use 2 cores so many dual core processors can perform better than hexa core processors.I hope I answered your question.

This CPU owns, yes other cpu's might give better performance, I play Battlefield 3 on Ultra with 1920x1080 res and get 60/60 fps. I use V-sync so my fps cant go higher than 60.
Buy this cpu if you want to play games, It handles everything, and beats Intel cpu's at the same price if you want to Video rendering.

why does this only gets 8 stars?i would give it 9 stars.beacue like the 6100 fx gets 9 stars when its is
1. only 3.6 ghz (turbo 3.9ghz).
2. games do not use all 6cores so the 4170 is better than this overall.
3.gettingi the fx6100 is just a wate of money get the 4170 instead its be

the 4170 is 4.1ghz,and its better for gaming overall.(and as i know this is a gaming site). sorry i just realized that the fx

My CPU was showing as 10% better a few days ago. Now it shows as 3% worse. And with the OC I have, my CPU is showing as 9-star and this one is showing as 8-star. How is mine worse? Why is this occurring?
