The 6-Core FX 6300 3.5 GHz Processor from AMD is a six-core desktop processor with 6MB L2 and 8MB L3 cache. It is capable of handling multiple intensive apps and features a speed frequency of 3.5 GHz to 4.1 GHz. This processor comes equipped with AMD64 technology, AMD Turbo CORE technology, HyperTransport technology, AMD Memory Optimizer technology, AMD Virtualization (AMD-V) technology, and AMD PowerNow! technology (Cool 'n' Quiet technology). It also features Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX), Floating-Point Vector Multiply-Accumulate and eXtended Operations (FMA4 & XOP), and Advanced Encryption Standard (AES).
AMD Turbo CORE Technology
Helps improve performance of CPU intensive applications by providing faster clock speeds
Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) increase parallelism for scientific and 3D apps using heavy floating point calculations Floating-Point Vector Multiply-Accumulate and eXtended Operations (FMA4 & XOP) improves throughput and performance on many integer and floating point vector functions Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) increases performance on encryption apps like TrueCrypt and PCMark
AMD Balanced Smart Cache
Shared L3 cache (up to 8MB) for improved scheduling and pre-fetch capabilities 64-ways (16-ways/sub-cache) Increased data queue sizes Coherency for 6 cores
AMD Wide Floating Point Accelerator
Shared FP scheduler Dual 128-bit floating point engines can team together for 256-bit AVX instructions or operate separately with each core
One 16-bit link at up to 5600 MT/s Up to 8.0GB/s HyperTransport I/O bandwidth; Up to 16GB/s in HyperTransport Generation 3.0 mode Up to 37GB/s total delivered processor-to-system bandwidth (HyperTransport bus + memory bus)
Integrated DRAM Controller with AMD Memory Optimizer Technology
A high-bandwidth, low-latency integrated memory controller Supports up to DDR3-1866 with 1 DPC (DIMM per channel) in single memory slot motherboard designs Supports low voltage memories of 1.35V and 1.2V Up to 29.9GB/s memory bandwidth for DDR3 Pre-fetcher improvements Direct communications to each core in dual-core module (APIC registers in each core)
AMD Virtualization (AMD-V) Technology with IOMMU
Silicon feature-set enhancements for improved performance, reliability, and security of existing and future virtualization environments by allowing virtualized apps direct, rapid access to their allocated memory IOMMU (Input/Output Memory Management Unit) is an extension to AMD64 architecture to support address translation and access protection on DMA transfers Security for user-level application and virtual machine guest OS Address translation and access control Device isolation Device assignment in virtualized systems Security and trusted boot support Unified interrupt management
Automatically and instantaneously adjusts performance states and features based on processor performance requirements C6 power state for cache flush and voltage down individual cores CC6 power state allows all cores in C6 to power even lower for quieter operation and reduced power requirements Separate memory controller power control I/O-based c-state interface Works automatically without the need for drivers or BIOS enablement Power can be switched on or off within a single clock cycle, saving energy with no impact on performance
