available
  • The AMD FX-6300 CPU has 15% higher performance in memory-intensive programs.
  • This microprocessor features SSSE3, SSE4.1 and SSE4.2 instructions.
  • The processor incorporates AES, or Advanced Encryption Standard, extension to the instruction set. These instructions accelerate AES encryption and decryption, and are useful if you need to protect your disk or network data.
  • The FX-6300 has AVX, F16C, FMA3 and XOP instructions, that appeared in modern processors not too far ago. These extensions are not extensively used by applications yet, however their support should improve in future apps.
  • The FX-6300 microprocessor features FMA4 instruction set extension. The FMA4 technology is only offered on AMD microprocessors, thus it may not get broad support from software vendors.
  • Power consumption of the CPU is better.

AMD Phenom II X6 1100T advantages



AMD Phenom II X6 1100T
  • The AMD Phenom II X6 1100T is 6% faster when running single-threaded applications.
  • Multi-threaded performance of the processor is higher.
  • 3DNow! instructions are avaialable on this CPU. While the 3DNow! technology may boost performance of some old games, it is now obsolete, and it is no longer utilized by modern programs.

Benchmarks

System setup

Below is a complete set of AMD FX-6300 and Phenom II X6 1100T 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 ASRock M3A780GXH/128M motherboard, that had 2 GB dual-channel Corsair CM3X1024-1333C9 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-6300 vs Phenom II X6 1100T 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-6300 vs Phenom II X6 1100T 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.
