The AMD FX-6100 has six processing cores, which is above average for a desktop CPU. Single and dual core performance is weak scoring amongst the bottom 30% of desktop processors. Multi core performance is better but still barely above the bottom 10% of processors. At nearly three years of age, the FX-6100 struggles to compete with more recent CPUs. [Mar '14 CPUPro]
