What most of these comparisons fail to realize or to factor is the fact that this CPU has an unlocked multiplie and willconsistently run at 4.0 GHz under stock thermal solution and at 4.1 stable for my tower of power...it's not a beast but for a build i literally spent 25.bucks on altogether sourcing from secondhand stores I'm not complaining.

Is pretty amazing tbh, passed the test of time and survived much more than it should have ever had to deal with.

Great cpu for its age, running the 95w version at stock speeds. Runs everything I throw at it. Long live FX

Still faster than most laptops despite its age. More suitable for winter than summer though...

Utilizandolo ahora en pleno 2019, sinceramente calienta mucho y su consumo es elevado, aun asi acompañado de 16 gb de ram y una hd7950 no hay juego que no juegue con todo full en HD o algunos caso FHD


Poor

Terrible bottleneck in gaming, not fast enough in rendering. Fake eight core advertising, I wish I knew that before buying.

Great 8 core cpu, especially for its age and price, doesn't bottle neck mid range cards and handles windows 10 even today very nicely. In 2020 the 8 core fx cpus are the only ones worth it imo. These CMT cores are 8 integer, 4 floating point units, each with 2 floating point engines. 8 cores is 8 cores. A cpu ahead of its time. 9 yrs and still going!
