AMD 6300 overview

  • 1Description

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
Instruction Capabilities
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
HyperTransport Technology
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
AMD PowerNow! Technology (Cool 'n' Quiet Technology)
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

    AMD 6300 reviews

    6-Core FX 6300 3.5 GHz Processor is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Affordable and fast I always buy my new computer parts from Newegg, however PC Part Picker showed B&H had it less expensive so I jumped on it. It arrived in 4 business days and was packaged well enough to keep the CPU safe. I installed the processor the day it arrived and overclocked it the next day. Been running it at 4.2GHz stable and fast. I play any new game on very high or ultra settings (R9 380 strix gaming gpu) without any cpu throttle. I know if I wanted to up my cpu speed I could with no problem, but that always shortens the life of any processor. Keep in mind that if you are wanting to overclock this processor you will need to have upgraded CPU Cooler installed. I have nothing negative to say about B&H or AMD.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crushes Intel in Price/performance Very fast, especially when paired with an SSD. I used to doubt AMD, but they sell great budget CPUs, much better than Intel, who only sells their brand name.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would definitely buy again for next build. Built system to run Lightroom and Photoshop. Running without any problems so far. Actually a joy to use applications compared to my old system.
