Is there a performance difference?

So benchmarks say there is but is it noticeable?

I plan on upgrading from A6-5400K to Athlon X4 760k. but I was wondering is the A10-7850k worth the extra $100 over the X4 760K? I have a Radeon R7-260X already so I am looking at CPU performance and not the integrated graphics

  1. I don't think it will be noticable except if you run every kind of benchmarks, then you will see that little difference

    what about in games? the only difference I see is that it supports PCI-E 3.0 since it's an FM2+ processor but is there a performance difference between PCI-E 3.0 and PCI-E 2.0?
  3. Yep there is you won't get full potential of the GPU if you have pci-e x16 2.0 and the card can be supported by 3.0.. GPU will be more slow

    but then the main question returns is the performance difference really worth $100?

    No not really. The performance depends now on your motherboard, if it supports GPU for pci-e x16 3.0. Those two cpus are a bit the same with some minor differences in internal graphics and power consuption so I would get x4 760k

    I have FM2/FM2+ motherboard so it'll support both of them. I just can't justify spending an extra $100 if the Performance wont be noticeable
