AMD FX-6100 vs Intel Core i5-750

Mini Review

AMD FX-6100 advantages



AMD FX-6100
  • In memory-intensive tasks, the processor is 14% faster.
  • The microprocessor has Advanced Encryption Standard technology enabled. This extension accelerates AES encryption and decryption, and is valuable if you need to protect your disk or network data.
  • The processor supports AVX and XOP instructions, introduced in the recent past. These extensions are not widely used by programs yet, but their support should improve in future applications.
  • The AMD FX-6100 has FMA4 instruction set extension enabled. The FMA4 technology is only offered on AMD CPUs, thus it probably will not get broad support from software vendors.
  • The FX-6100 features unlocked clock multiplier. The microprocessor can be easily overclocked on most motherboards to achieve better performance.

Benchmarks

System setup

Below is a complete set of AMD FX-6100 and Intel Core i5-750 benchmarks from our CPU benchmark database. The former processor was tested on ASUS Sabertooth 990FX motherboard with 4GB dual-channel Crucial BallistixPC3-14900 (DDR3-1866) memory, and MSI R6670 1GB GDDR5 (ATI Radeon). The latter processor was tested on ASUS P7P55D motherboard, that had 2 GB dual-channel Corsair TR3X3G1600C9 DDR3 memory, and Powercolor 24PRO256M DDR2 (ATI Radeon HD2400) graphics.

All tests were performed at default frequency and voltage, using manufacturer's stock fan/heatsink. None of the components were overclocked. Motherboard BIOS options were left at default settings.

The results of all benchmarks are broken into four categories: multi-threaded, single-threaded, memory intensive and graphics / gaming.


FX-6100 vs Intel Core i5-750 single-threaded benchmarks

Single-threaded benchmarks run on a single CPU core, and do not depend on such features as the number of cores, or Hyper-Threading technology. Additionally, they do not utilize on-chip caches, dedicated to other cores.

FX-6100 vs Intel Core i5-750 graphics benchmarks

Graphics benchmarks depend on the type of integrated or discrete graphics adapter, and to less extent on the processor performance. Because these benchmarks are synthetic, they may not truly represent gaming performance. However, they still can be used to estimate whether one processor will perform faster or slower than another CPU in games and other 3D tasks.

Important! The processors were tested using different types of graphics adapters, that may not be suitable for comparison.

FX-6100 vs Intel Core i5-750 memory performance

Memory-intensive tests or programs move large amounts of data to/from memory, and they depend more on memory throughput and the size of on-chip caches, rather than on CPU integer/FP/SIMD performance.
