Closed Fx-8350 vs fx-4300 Tags: CPUs Performance Tom's Hardware Gaming Product Last response: November 8, 2012 9:47 AM in CPUs Share sethandflirt November 7, 2012 5:28:36 PM Hi when the fx buldozers came out tom's hardware said the 4100 and the 8100 had the same gaming performance. I was wondering if it is the same way with the 8350 and the 4300. Thanks More about : 8350 4300 grumbledook a b à CPUs November 7, 2012 6:25:00 PM The 8350 does a lot better in games. The 6300 also does quite a bit better than the 4300 and is only 10 bucks or so more expensive. The 4300 is not a good buy right now, it needs a price drop.

I think that Stalker: Call of Pripryiat can only even use 1 core. If the game can only use 4 or less, then they will perform the same. It is the same with the x1xx and x3xx chips in this regard.
