Average Bench: 48.8% (262nd of 956)

Based on 36,511 user benchmarks.  Device: 178BFBFF00600F20 Model: AMD FX(tm)-6300 Six-Core Processor

The FX 6-Core, like most CPUs from AMD, delivers reasonably good server orientated multi threaded performance and consequently good processing thoughput at a reasonable price tag. Where the FX 6-Core lacks is in the area of single core performance which although not normally a major problem for server workloads, is always very relevant to desktop users. The overall performance of the FX 6-Core is comparable to Intel's five years younger Core i7-950. There are server orientated use cases where the FX 6-Core will excel thanks to its excellent overall throughput and in those instances the FX 6-Core represents good value for money. But typical desktop users will find far better value elsewhere[Sep '13 CPUPro]

This gets way better press than deserved for gaming. The single threaded performance is not good enough to effectively run and utilise mid level GPU's such as R9 280(non-x) unless it is overclocked to ~4.5GHz. From experience better off getting a second hand Sandy Bridge processor that has better single threaded and equal multi threaded performance such as i5 2320 (this is the one I tested). However if you only want to buy a new processor this one is the cheapest okay CPU atm.

so inexpensive for the performance.

This CPU has the best performance/price ratio (12.2012-12.2016)!! I am using it since 2012, and at that time for the price of FX-6300, Intel had Pentium G2120 to offer (in Germany). Comparing with G2120, this CPU is best for general purpose multitasking as well as gaming (with overclocking). Highly recommended. However considering the recent CPUs, Pentium G4520 (with same price tag 95€) has 1.7 times better single core performance.

Good for the price. Mine it's easy to overclock to 4.3 MHz at default motherboard Vcore 1.2V (1.28V real).
