Geekbench 6 (Single-Core)

Geekbench 6 is a benchmark for modern computers, notebooks and smartphones. What is new is an optimized utilization of newer CPU architectures, e.g. based on the big.LITTLE concept and combining CPU cores of different sizes. The single-core benchmark only evaluates the performance of the fastest CPU core, the number of CPU cores in a processor is irrelevant here.

Description of the processor

The AMD FX-6300 is a processor with 6 cores from AMDs FX processor series. The 6 physical cores have a standard clock of 3.50 gigahertz. In turbo mode, the clock can be automatically increased up to 4.10 gigahertz. The AMD FX-6300 doesnt support hyperthreading, but you can overclock it thanks to the free multiplier. The AMD FX-6300 is based on the Vishera design. The CPU is manufactured in 32 nm.

If you consider overclocking, you have to ensure sufficient cooling, otherwise it can lead to damages on the processor. The AMD FX-6300 supports two working memory modules of the DDR3-1866 standard. The memory bandwidth doubles in dual-channel mode with two modules. Therefore, you should use two modules instead of just one if possible. Up to 32 GB of working memory is supported. The memorys ECC error correction function is not or only partially supported.

The TDP of the AMD FX-6300 is 95 watts, whereby AMD specifies a maximum Tjunction of only 70.5 °C. The AES-Ni encryption functions via hardware are supported. Virtualization software can fall back on the AMD-V features. Thanks to the 6 cores, the AMD FX-6300 is suitable for virtualizing smaller environments.

The AMD FX-6300 was released in the fourth quarter of 2012 at an introductory price of 90 Euros. Due to the good price-performance ratio, the processor is one of the most popular AMD FX processors.

The processor has an 8 megabyte Level 3 cache. An internal graphics unit is not available, so you cant avoid installing a dedicated graphics card. This is a shame especially for smaller systems where you only need a very low graphics performance and where an external graphics card is actually overkill.
