AMD FX 6100 Black Edition review

Six cores beats four cores, right? Well...

TODO alt text

The very least you'd hope from this latest 'six-core' processor from AMD is that it would beat the previous generation of hex core chips, here represented by the AMD Phenom II X6 1100T.

Sadly it's well off the pace the previous generation sets.

Most tragic of all is just how weak it is in gaming terms. The older processor has it licked.
