AMD fx-6100 or 8320

So, I currently have a FX 6100 at 4.5ghz. Will I see an improvement if I buy a 8320, and oc that? The games I play are Minecraft, BF3/4, and I livestream and video edit a bit.

  1. I had an FX 6200 at stock and changed to an 8320 (didn't meet my expectations, changed to intel). I saw a decent difference but not that remarkable. Initially I thought it was double; my max FPS was much higher but the average was only about 10% higher.

    It will depend a lot on your GPU, and the OC capabilities will depend on your motherboard. What are the models of each?

    you will see a very good improvement in gaming and video editing/streaming. a bulldozer fx 6100 is pretty weak in gaming.

  3. Yes, the FX 6100 used bulldozer architecture and has very low per core performance, which made them poor gamers. A piledriver based 8320 should offer a decent performance increase, how much depends on other hardware.
  4. i would get the fx 8320 because the fx 6100 was bulldozer and that is weak for gaming

    Ok :D I'll be getting one soon, and overclocking it! Here's to hoping I get a good overclocker ;)
  6. good luck!:). but first knowing your motherboard would be good if it can overclock an 8350 or not.

    Asrock 970 extreme4, lastest BIOS too. I'm able to OC my 6100 with it to 4.7, but I don't like the heat my 6100 outputs that high.
