>>52234118 it depends on how much you will benefit from having more cores. benchmarks you look at are on a per application basis, rather than what a typical workflow looks like, which includes heavy multitasking. two cores is atrocious for heavy multitasking but the i3 may still pull ahead, once a heavy base clock overclock is applied, which is unique to the z170 boards
>>52233623 I'd argue the Athlon X4 860k, since it's got 20% higher IPC at stock speeds than the 6300, and can usually overclock like a motherfucker (I can get 4.2 GHz on stock cooling without even touching the voltage).
Don't listen to the people that are bashing AMD. They make great processors. Why buy a quad core Intel for roughly $300 when you could buy a octacore AMD Vishera for $210. I've built three computers for my house in the last three years. My gaining pc(8 core), my home entertainment system (two terabyte hard drives one being a solid state Samsung and the other a hybrid) has all my movies, music and other junk which is running an AMD 6 core and my wife's ever day machine since she refuses to touch the other two. And it has a quad core AMD. I have never had any issues with any of them. My gaming rig used to have a 4.2 Intel quad, a few months back I out in the 4.7 octo from AMD and it out performs the Intel 100%. Long story short, AMD all the way!
>>52233623 I have a fx6350. I don't have any complaint so far: it's a cheap cpu that does its job. It runs pretty hot tho and I'm not 100% that a skylake i3 6100 isn't going to beat the memefx in every application. Said so both cpus are poor men cpus so who cares....
>>52236188 oh and I don't know about other countries but the price of my CPU in Italy went up by about 25€ since I bought it one year ago... I have no idea why, but if anything that's another reason NOT to buy it. An aging technology that raises its price over time? Fuck it.
>>52233623 it isn't even a fair comparison with haslel/skyrape processors considering how old it is. needless to say, nowadays i3 will grind any fx processor in single, and anything that uses less than 5 threads.
still, its not a bad processor, it'll do pretty much anything sufficiently, for slightly cheaper but not enough considering it doesn't even pack igp, runs hot as the devil, drains power, and has poor single coar performance. it simply won't do in this era.
>>52233623 The only thing I didn't like about the 6300 is the stock cooler, which sounds like a plane engine when the CPU goes over 55C, but it never went above 70-72C when I used stock. Aside from that it's all good. Ever at 4.1GHz mine never went past 45w it seems.
