Core i3-6100 vs FX-4320 specs and performance
Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Core i3-6100 performs better than the FX-4320. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the FX-4320 in all gaming tests too.
Our spec comparison shows that they have an identical amount of cores and the same number of threads. With our hardware info, we find that the FX-4320 has a slightly higher clock speed than the Core i3-6100. A Core i3-6100 CPU outputs less heat than a FX-4320 CPU because of its significantly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption. The info from our database shows that the FX-4320 has more L2 cache than the Core i3-6100. However, both these chips have the same amount of L3 cache.
Modern CPUs generally have more logical cores than physical cores, this means that each core is split into multiple virtual cores, improving efficiency for parallel workloads. Indeed, the Core i3-6100 has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
