Clocked easy to 4.2 Ghz with room to spare. Never reached over 48c during Prime95. Although marketed as 3.3 Ghz at stock speed with the Turbo boost it spends most of its time when set to full power upwards of 3.6 to 3.9 Ghz. This is manageable though the Catalyst Control center. I don't know why some of the reviews say it is not faster then the Phenom X6 series. My guess is they did not update their mother board or memory. My MB = MSI 990FXA-GD65 Memory= G-skill 1866 DDR3 With MSI HD 6870 Graphics. I Just updated the MB and Processor on this and i get 15 FPS increase on FFXIV. 10 FPS increase in Witcher 2. Basicly all my games have increased FPS. I was Running a 1100 Phenom 2 X6. To conclude the FX series Processors have huge Overclocking overhead, instruction sets for future programing, and paired with a AM3+ high end MB it is a beast within itself. I recommend to all. Hope this helped any one making that decision to buy or not.

I bought this CPU as an upgrade to my PC as I also needed to upgrade the Motherboard. Now AMD has been pushing this Bulldozer style platform for awhile now and to give the quick rundown of what it is. Basically AMD is trying to join the Hyper-threading Market, a system used by Intel's i3, i5 and i7 CPUs. Basically what hyper-threading does is "trick" the computer into thinking it has more threads to perform its duty. So if you have a dual-core you will see 4 threads and if you have a quad-core you will see 8 threads. Now AMD has released these CPU's in 3 flavors the 4-core, 6-core (which this is and I bought)and the 8-core. Now if you just look at the marketing description you may think "Wow! these are really inexpensive for 4,6,8 core CPUs, but the reality is these are actually dual-core, tri-core and quad-core CPU's with hardware and software programming which make them appear as though they have double the actual cores. So the marketing for these chips was better than the actual chips themselves. Now who would I recommend these CPU's too? Anybody who is looking for a pretty cheap upgrade to new hardware, who is coming from old hardware. I was coming from a 890GXB MOBO (not bad), HD6850 (kept it in the upgrade process) and a AMD phenom X2 B55 (unlocked to a X4, through Mobo bios). The only reason I upgraded both the Motherboard and CPU is because I need some extra PCI-e slots and the 890GXB was a micro-ATX which only had 1. So in the process I thought it would be better to upgrade the Motherboard to something newer and look for a slight upgrade to my CPU. The AMD 6100 fits that bill. It performs way better than what I had, as now my system does not seem to choke as much when rendering a video and even playing a game at the same time.Read more ›

I have bought this processor along with a 990fx motherboard chipset, I havn`t overclocked it yet but as a first impression its HUGE, its really big comparing to my old pentium, the strongest point here is the price, its really cheap for a 6 core processor not to mention its unlocked and very overclock friendly, I havn`t played much of games yet but its really fast for multitasking and running cpu intensive programs, thanks to the big cache memory and turbo technology, alot professional reviewers view the fx series of processor as very bad or disappointing, forgeting to focus on the total price and value per speed, even the motherboards are much cheaper than intel and the 990fx chipset is the only chipset that support 2 x16 graphic card at the same time. you might wanna check for benchmarking and value per performance.
overall its good so far and no issues.

edit: most of benchmarks and reviewers are saying the bulldozer series is a failure, and its very slow, the fact is the series is not slow, and on 1080p gaming in comparison its only behind by 6-8 fps from the i5 and the i7 2500k, comparing this to the total price for a motherboard, rams and graphic cards, I would rather waste the money difference on another high end graphic card and run it in crossfire.

the point am trying to make is that a merly of less than 10fps in games is not considered a failure giving the performance/value ratio, its a very solid buy.

picking up and intel based 2011 79x chipset system and you will end up paying 300 - 400$ more in total, for about 10fps faster in games, thats not really a bargain giving that the 990fx and am3+ is newer and still has a lot of upgradeablity potential which means it will last you longer since the upcoming piledrive are also am3+ based.

This cheap does not beat my intel 3960x's and that's to be expected. $1200 vs $200 range would explain that. But what impresses me about the FX6100 is how close it comes in some ways to the 3960x, it really takes some rugged use before you can see why the 3960x is a chip that whips AMD right now. With that said;

Most users never put their machine through what makes a 3960x worth the $1200
and not everyone of my PC's need to do what my power machines do. This is my chip, and I'd love to try the 8core one day.
One thing to note: UNlike the intel extreme editions, these chips clock down unlocked core usage, or so I have read.

Regardless, I love the system I built with this chip, and considering the price difference is tremendous, am to no end impressed. AMD promised a bit more with these chips than delivered (that is the opinion of most tech savvy types, and people in the industry I talked to) but one thing we all agree on is there is no better value for the money than this chip.

Love it, and I think you will too.
