A10-5800K vs FX-6100 performance comparison

The charts illustrate performance of A10-5800K and FX-6100 CPUs in various types of applications. The numbers for 'Single-threaded performance' and 'Multi-threaded performance' charts are calculated as an average of several related benchmarks, that you can see in the "Benchmarks" tab. As a result, the displayed results may differ from results, that you may receive in individual tests. The 'Overall performance' chart displays an average of all-around performance benchmarks, and benchmarks, specific to each type of task. The 'Price-performance ratio' chart calculates 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 A10-5800K and FX-6100 benchmarks from our CPU benchmark database. The former processor was tested on ASRock FM2A75 Pro4-M motherboard with 4GB dual-channel Crucial BallistixPC3-14900 (DDR3-1866) memory, and Integrated on-chip ATI Radeon 7000-series graphics. The latter processor was tested on ASUS Sabertooth 990FX motherboard, that had 4GB dual-channel Crucial BallistixPC3-14900 (DDR3-1866) 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.


A10-5800K vs FX-6100 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.

A10-5800K vs FX-6100 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.
