Average Bench: 61.6% (449th of 1264)

Based on 8,103 user benchmarks.  Device: 178BFBFF00600F20 Model: AMD FX(tm)-4350 Quad-Core Processor

The AMD FX-4350 is a value quad-core processor. It was released in Q2 of 2013 and is a refreshed version of the Piledriver based FX-4300. Its base clock speed of 4.2 GHz boosts to 4.3 GHz in turbo mode and since it is unlocked, the FX-4350 can be overclocked to over 4.6 GHz. Its effective speed of 71 is reasonable for general computing and even gaming when coupled with an adequate GPU. Whilst the FX-4350 is cheap, it’s not so differently priced from the hexa core FX-6350 which was launched concurrently and offers slightly better multi-core performance. So if you like to game and Skype at the same time, then it may be worth considering an upgrade but since most general computing only relies on single-core performance, the upgrade is probably not worth it. [Nov '14 CPUPro]

Own it, has been performing hard since it's purchase, I haven't needed to replace it, but other parts have long expired. I am not someone who meticulously takes care of their pc either. There's no wonder why it has such a high value in the market still. [I bought it when it was significantly cheaper though.]
