Both AMD and Intel have introduced the same type of new voltage and power regulation systems, alongside the limited core 'turbo' modes for thread-limited acceleration. But does it work?
We'll put a hold recommendation the 6100. At stock clocks and with the final module hidden, it's not terribly exciting. However, if it turns out that most of all 6100s will happily run with the final module enabled, it might just be worth a roll of the dice. If that happens, we'll be more than happy to upgrade the 6100's status to buy.
In our testing, the 4100 didn't deliver significantly better overclocking headroom than the full eight-core Bully. The best that can be said about this dual-module Bulldozer, then, is that it's not far behind its triple and quad-module brethren in games. If only they weren't all off the pace.
