More about which better
  1. Clearly, FX 6100 is better than the Phenom X3, in almost every Benchmark.
  2. But your phenom ii x3 is now equal to a phenom ii x4 975 which is a pretty fast chip so as far as gaming goes the phenom might be the faster one but if you OC the 6100 then it will be faster

    The Unlocked core cannot work at full efficiency. So, performance won't be equal to X4 975.
