AMD FX-6200 vs Intel Core i5-3570

Mini Review

AMD FX-6200 advantages



AMD FX-6200
  • The FX-6200 microprocessor supports XOP instructions. These extensions are not broadly supported by applications yet, but their support should improve in future programs.
  • The CPU has FMA4 instruction set extension enabled. Only AMD processors offer this technology, thus not many software vendors may support it in the future.
  • The AMD FX-6200 microprocessor is not "locked". Consequentally, the CPU can be effortlessly overclocked on most motherboards when higher performance is needed. Be warned that overclocking voids warranty of the microprocessor.
  • The AMD FX-6200 is priced about 36% lower than the Intel i5-3570 CPU.
  • The microprocessor has 25% better price/performance ratio.

Intel Core i5-3570 advantages



Picture

available
  • In single-threaded programs, the CPU has 64% higher performance.
  • Multi-threaded performance of the i5-3570 is better.
  • The Core i5-3570 processor is 8% faster in memory-intensive tasks.
  • Graphics performance of the CPU is higher.
  • The processor includes F16C instructions, that were introduced in modern CPUs not too far ago. These extensions are not extensively used by applications yet, however their support should improve in future programs.
  • In addition to 4 CPU cores, the Core i5-3570 incorporates HD 2500 GPU. This graphics replaces low-end graphics card, and thus lowers the cost of the system.
  • Power consumption of the processor is lower.

FX-6200 vs i5-3570 performance comparison

The charts in the table below illustrate performance of FX-6200 and Core i5-3570 microprocessors in several different types of tasks. To determine displayed numbers we averaged results for a few benchmarks for each specific task type. Consequentally, the shown results may differ from results, that you may receive in individual tests. We also averaged the numbers for application type specific benchmarks and all-around performance benchmarks, and presented them in the 'Overall performance' chart. The 'Price-performance ratio' displays how much more performance you will get per dollar spent. This ratio does not include the cost of other system parts.

Benchmarks

System setup

Below is a complete set of AMD FX-6200 and Intel Core i5-3570 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 P8P67 motherboard, that had 2 GB dual-channel Corsair TR3X3G1600C9 DDR3 memory, and MSI R6670 1GB GDDR5 (ATI Radeon) 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-6200 vs Intel Core i5-3570 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-6200 vs Intel Core i5-3570 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.
