AMD FX 8300

Report a correction
Much more l2 cache 8 MB vs 0.25 MB 32x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 180 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much higher clock speed 3.3 GHz vs 1.1 GHz Around 3x 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) 4.61 GHz vs 1.33 GHz Around 3.5x better overclocked clock speed (Air)
More cores 8 vs 1 7 more cores; run more applications at once
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 4x more l2 cache per core
More threads 8 vs 1 7 more threads
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.51 GHz vs 1.1 GHz More than 4x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
