Average Bench: 48.1% (274th of 961)

Based on 44,478 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]

I have oc'd this to 4.2GHz - and alongside my R7 360 which is OC'd to (GPU Clk 1270mhz and mem clk 2000mhz) with 8GB 1600mhz ram, I hit a good FPs of 52FPS on HIGH (2560x1440) in games such as GTA5 and MAFIA3 (even tho mafia 3 loves more cores and faster ram) I still hit a nice FPS of 45-48.... I'm hoping the FX-8320e/ with 16GB 1866 will show a bit more improvement (Considering, I started playing GTA5 on a Athlon II x2 250 @ 3.7GHz with a HD6670 (oc's to 1220 on GPU and MEM) I have had i5's and i7's - I don't believe the performance matches it's price tag, and even on air/water combo cooling, they never went lower then 80c, where as my FX6300 stays below 70c at 100% load.

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).

still got mine with a strix 970, 4.1 ghz clock will do 5ghz but mobo don't like anything over 4.1(cheap) it turns off after an hour or so I need a better a one currently have a 6700k strix o8g 1080 but don't want to get rid of my amd pc. Better mobo to get the 5ghz clock oc the 970 as well should still be good for a couple of years. FX 6300 OC`s easy but so does my 6700k put it straight to 5ghz too then backed off to 4.9 till water cooling arrives so its at 4.5ghz, compared to amd its a heater but they run 70-80c normal so is ok hell mine is at 34c idle fx is way cooler and wont like operating at 70+
