    No the last TRUE amd 4 cores were the phenoms from amd This has 2 cores and 2 moduls,Like intels hyperthreading
  2. Yes it mainly two cores + two moduls.
  3. ok thanks ! thats what i was told . so i wanted to be sure ! this was the only way i could be ! can you help me with a amd setup ? i want to game at ultra settings ! but 6 cores seems be over kill !
  4. budget? games? resolution?
  5. 1000/black opps/ 1080p 50inch led
  6. Do not go for the old Bulldozer models e.g. Any FX processor that has *1** in it

    Go for the 4300>6300>8320-8350
  7. i have tower /power supply/ ram .

    ok thanks alot !
  9. It's kinda both. Bulldozer modules have 2 "integer clusters" each, and they stack them up to make processors, 2 for 4xxx, 3 for 6xxx and 4 for 8xxx series. In that sense, a 4100 has 4 distinct processing cores, as it has 4 physical processing elements within its two modules. Each module however, has shared resources which means that you don't necessarily get the same level of performance as you would from a "true" quad core. It wouldn't really be fair to call it a dual core though either.

    Intels Hyperthreading works on each core in turn, to effectively use up any leftover space in each processing cycle. It's a very different system. Even in an i7, you only ever have 4 physical cores but you get 8 "opportunities" per cycle to process.

    so what do you think ? 4300 with what board ? i've had alot of luck with gigabyte boards ! but im always willing to listen !
  12. I suggest add $10 more and get fx 6300
    instead of 4300.

    ok i will ! do you know what board i should use ? theres so many now ! i want a full atx board , alot more room to work with !

    I would say go for my board, unless somebody can suggest a better one maybe? The 970 extreme 3.

    Pretty cheap and is solid. Good overclocker too.
  15. The extreme 3 OR the ASUS M5A97,rock solid bored.had my 6100 clocked at 4.7ghz stable 24/7
