the phenom chip will have better preformance, the FX series outright sucks... although you may wanna wait for the rest of the FX win7 patch which shouldnt be nessicary in my eyes to be released :p

FX is ok once you overclock but theres really no reason to get it over the 1090t.

even the 8 core FX has problems keeping up with the 1090t.

For the most part Phenom II x6 is faster than FX 6100, gaming and video encoding are among the things Phenom II is better at. FX 6100 does have lower power draw at stock speeds, and if you overclock may be able to match an overclocked Phenom II X6, I've yet to see overclocked results.

yes but at the same time, you could overclock your phenom chip and once again get better preformance :p

I do more video editing but also enjoy gaming as well. In edition this will also host a server for Halo. My main question is what is the difference between a "Phenom II X6 1090T and the FX-6100 Zambezi ?.

I did find this thread "http://forums.extremeoverclocking.com/attachment.php?at..."


From every review I've seen the performance of the 1090T will be consistently better than the 6100. the 1090t keeps pace with the 8120 on most tasks and runs non-optimized code better. For video editing the 1090T should provide solid performance, but really the GPU and Disk array should be your primary limiting factor.

What kind of video do you edit, length, resolution and target (web, broadcast?)
What program do you use? It is unlikely that it is optimized for the new bulldozer architecture, though it may have been optimized for the 1090T and it's ilk.

Overall the short answer is the 1090T should be better for video if you need to edit today.

Agreed easy to overclock as well.

The FX-6100 is worse, it isn't really a hexacore in the traditional sense due to the nature of Bulldozer cores, in many ways it should only be considered to have 3 cores. To make matters worse the IPC is also fairly poor.

Any chance you could go the Sandy Bridge route instead?

I see that there is now a "AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition Six Core, 6MB L3 Cache, 3MB L2 Cache, 3.30GHz, Socket AM3, 125W. Which I will more than likely purchase over the Fx 6100 series. Thank you all for the Information on the six core question that I had. I hope it also helps out anyone else having the same question as I did !.

For those that asked about switching to Intel ? This was an upgrade from a previous build I made.
