AMD FX 6300

Report a correction
Much more l2 cache 6 MB vs 0.5 MB 12x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 130 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much higher clock speed 3.5 GHz vs 2 GHz 75% higher clock speed
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.75 GHz vs 2.54 GHz More than 85% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
More cores 6 vs 1 5 more cores; run more applications at once
Significantly better PassMark (Single core) score 1,446 vs 578 More than 2.5x better PassMark (Single core) score
Significantly better PassMark score 6,444 vs 370 Around 17.5x better PassMark score
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
More threads 6 vs 1 5 more threads
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.82 GHz vs 2.13 GHz More than 2.2x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
