From the wiki I linked about the 4100:

'Two Integers-Clusters (seen like logical cores from OS) in each Bulldozer "Core".'

The 4100 has two physical cores, the O/S sees two logical cores per physical.


Well not quite, you see AMD uses modules that have 2 real cores that share a front end. Both the FX-4100 and the 5800K are dual module, Quad core processors. And I agree that the 5800K is faster than the FX-4100, however you can up grade from a FX-4100 to a FX-8350 (quad module 8 core beast) on most motherboards while the most you will probably be able to upgrade from a 5800K for a while is to a 6800K (dual module quad core same as 5800k just a new tweaked silicon revision with higher clocks and a few new features) when they get released in June sometime. It is possible that by late 2013 or early 2014 a motherboard with a 5800K could be upgrade-able to a Kaveri based chip which has a new core (steamroller) and a new gpu core (gcn), it will also have up to 3 modules providing 6 cores with true HSA (Heterogeneous System Architecture) design..

For the $122 you'd spend on the A10-5800k, spend $7 more and get the FX6300...the jump is well worth the money, and probably the most performance gain between 2 chips you'd ever see for $7.

I guess the biggest difference beside faster clock speed (5800K) and L3 cache (Fx chip) is the fact the the 5800K has on chip graphics (7660D I believe) and the FX's do not have built in graphics. So if you are going to get a dedicated gpu that could affect which way you want to go. Yes the FX-6300 (3 module 6 core) is faster than the 5800K (dual modual quad core) so it really depends on what you plan on doing with your system.

I was going to buy A10 5800k but the shopkeeper told me that FX 8350 is much better than A10 in performance & gaming. But it consumes more power than a A10 CPU. So which is better FX 8350 or FX 6300 ?? in gaming and multitasking and I want to do some multimedia.

Thanks a lot for your info,I was thinking to upgrade my PC,equipped now with an 5800k,with that 6800k,but I realized that's would be a foolish thing to do,that would be only a very small improvement,I have to wait till the end of this year,or the beginning of the next one.Anyhow,I'm not interested in the integrated graphic card,when I decided to build my new PC,based on that 5800k,I had the illusion that combined with a R6670,it will have a decent Graphic performance.Now I have way over the average Graphic-Performance,after I have renounced at the integrated graphics,installing a msi R7870 HAWK,since then my RAM can operate way better at 1996,even if at not theirs full potential of 2133.In windows,my 5800k has a grade of 7.3 bottle-necking my Graphics that have 7.9 (previously the integrated APU Graphics and the R6670 combined,had onlt 6.3 in Windows).
