i was wondering what Intel CPU would be a comparison in performance to the AMD FX 6100?
i'm looking into buying the FX 6100 for my new gaming PC because of the price i can get it at of £120 but want to make sure there is no intel CPU on the market at the same price with equal or better performance. Be grateful for some feedback. £120 is my limit on a CPU
fx 6100's are crap for gaming. for an intel cpu, a 3ghz Core 2 Quad would be comparable in performance, which is a 5 year old CPU. an intel i5 2500k will absolutely stomp all over any amd cpu. http://www.guru3d.com/article/amd-fx-8150--8120-6100-an... the FX cpu's are slower than amd's older phenom II line.
If games are your primary concern then the dual core i3-2100 is capable of providing equal or better performance. See following for benchmarks against the FX-8150; they do not have benchmarks for the slower FX-6100.
