Well how is the FX 6300? - Page 2

post #11 of 32
I'll have one today. I don't overclock but I can post some general impressions. The FX 6300 is the sweet spot for me. I don't need the power of the 8 cores and I like the 95 watt tdp. I use my AMD rig for work with AutoCAD and a couple VM's. Been running the 6100 for several months with excellent results.
I have and use a high end Intel rig also. They both serve me well. I also like that the Vishera chips are dedicated, high performance 'DESKTOP' chips that weren't designed for laptops, ala Intel. Lastly I've grown tired of the Ivy tim/heat issues and wouldn't but another one. OH, and Haswell is just another laptop chip.

Can I play bf3 multi for a few hours straight with better minimum xfire gpu utilisation on the more cpu intensive maps/situations is what matters to me rather than a few extra 3dmark11 points
The difference between different CPUs of the same kind can be substantial - I have 5 Thubans - 2@ 1090T and 3 @ 1100T and out of all of them only 1 is a good overclocker ( and it is very good ).
There is no guarantee - just luck of the draw . That said it looks like piledriver CPUs are pretty consistent .

That's exactly what was meaning in earlier post. Just because a few owner runs seem to be hitting 5ghz+ on initial vishera tests does not make it the main. Could well end up being a minority. Just seen one cpuz in another thread of the 8350 stability testing at 5ghz with only 1.48 vcore, now that would be a great performance upgrade to my bulldozer, so hopefully these piledriver will hit 4.7+ with a higher % of cpu`s than bulldozer. I think most bulldozer hit round 4.6 with ease given the right vrm config and cooling but above that number was very hit and miss. For me to buy one it needs to be above my current cpu 24/7 oc - 4.7@1.48 vcore to justify the upgrade

Finally it beats Phenom II in single-threaded work. But my old i5-750 still beats it by a decent margin...

I'm eyeing the 6300 too but it doesn't seem too good, if it can be OC'd to 4.8/5 then it'd be awesome.
I'll wait for more reviews but 8350/20 is all i see everywhere.

Don't have one, but I'm somewhat tempted by the FX-6300 as a cheap upgrade from my i5-760 @ 3.85ghz. Seems to me that the 6 core model has the best price/performance ratio out of the lineup. Most people should be able to use six cores while multitasking, and new/upcoming games should support six cores, but using 8 cores will be much harder I think, unless you're heavy into 3d modeling, video conversion, etc.

However I think I'll stay the course... waiting for Haswell.

Yes, the FX-6300 has a very attractive price/performance ratio.
It also has the same 8MB L3 cache as the 8 core FX's.
I am thinking about replacing my core i3 with a FX-6300.
Intel has taken the fun out of overclocking by only allowing overclocking with a small number of cpu's.

I will probably get a 6300 depending on price, it seems to perform similar to th 100t so if i can get a higher overclock. it should do well. The problem with all these reviews, some seem to be better than others. Sometimes its down to the hardware.
