    AMD FX-4100 Bulldozer vs Phenom II X4 960T Black Edition

    I just come to know about AMD FX-4100 Quad Core 3.6GHz Bulldozer Processor. I am really looking for both FX4100 and a Phenom II 960T. I donít know about their performance or anything about overclocking capability. I want to choose any one of those for my new computer and the specs of the new PC as follows:
    • Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD5 motherboard.
    • 2X8GB Corsair 1600mhz RAM
    • CF'd 5770's + GT240 for Physx
    • Corsair HX 650W PSU
    • Case Corsair 650D
    • HD 2 Crucial M4 64GB SSD
    • 1 WD Black RE4 750Gb

    The BIOS settings are set to Auto. Whats your suggestion?

    I think that you should check with the benchmark result while running a game, a video, a spreadsheet as well as chat program. Do not only check the CPU with one thing. In my test I got good result and I have decided to go for FX-4100 for the multi-threaded capability.

    The Phenom X4 960T Black is now available in Europe, this processor is an X6 with two cores disabled, but functional, it is clearly a CPU to have. Indeed, it uses a chip X6 but with two cores disabled. Its TDP is 95 watts and so its nominal frequency of 3 GHz. It can climb to 3.4 GHz when necessary.

    The architecture of the FX-6100 is newer and fresher and still prefers the old x6 (without detracting from the phenom that is and remains a great processor)

    The FX series processors are competitive and cost very little for their cost. As for performance, I say this as former owner of a 960T, with the FX I've seen a difference of 5-6fps (earned) in the game, not counting for nothing just a FX4100 which currently costs less than a x4 960T. I do not regret at all the FX, indeed, I am very happy.
