AMD FX6300 Interesting Question.

Hi guys,

I'm buying a new CPU for my server which runs multiple tasks at once.

Each task doesn't require a great deal of CPU performance so saying intel is better may be true in terms of Core vs Core but if I want to run lots of things at once would having 6 cores be a better option than the i3 with 2 cores and 2 virtual cores?

Furthermore I was going to try and run a Virtual Machine with with 4 cores assigned and 2 cores left on the main OS to run a media center such as XBMC. Would this work?

Thank you in advanced,
Rabbit

  1. The 6300 would serve well in this role and would perform better than an I3 would. Your plan is a sound one.
  2. If speed is not really an issue then why not get a cheaper 8 core FX CPU and go 4 + 4 or 6 + 2 ?

    Mactronix :)
  3. Cheers for the reply, I was going 6 core due to cost. I would of gone a quad core but I think spending the extra $20-30 for 2 more cores would seem better.
  4. If you won't be gaming on it, the 6 core is without doubt much better than the i3

    The price difference is only 10$ between FX 4300 and FX 6300

    FX 6300 beats i3 in gaming.
