Is the AMD FX 6300 bad for gaming?

Play with 12 civs and you'll see turns start to take forever. You've got 26 hours played, how many games is that, 2? 2.5?

Not exactly. It's certainly terrible for a lot of kinds of gaming, like if you play competitive online games. For casual/light/console gaming, though, it's not bad.


Really? I have played loads of high end games online with mine and had no issues. I have also had no issues whatsoever with ANY pc games i have played using it either.

I don't know where people on this board get their info about AMD from but it's all wrong.


Having no standards isn't the same has having no issues.

The FX 6300 is alright in games that are using more than four cores/threads, but its slow single threaded performance isn't something one simply can overlook.
It just isn't that good for games like Starcraft 2 and Crysis 1.

Now this is just a stubborn response.

Crysis 1 runs just fine. Considering it's an un-optimised mess that still to this day won't run properly i have it at 1080p with the game patched to the latest version and settings on very high and maxed out motion blur and i get a more than playable fps with minor slowdown here and there but not in a way that hinders gameplay.

Haven't tested starcraft 2 as i don't have it.

EDIT

Not my gameplay but SC2 running on an FX6300 witha 1GB video card.

Generally you only want to get an AMD CPU on a budget, as far as pure video game performance goes it is objectively inferior to an Intel CPU, especially with emulation.

My 6300 holds nicely. I would have gone Intel if I had the money, but it was around half the pice of an I3 here, so I went with it.

It does fall behind on CPU heavy games, but I'd say it's not terrible or disapointing. Then again, I got a great deal :3

when comparing to intels that are priced 2 times as much as the 6300... its not like the intel is going to get you 2 times the performance.... you're talking about 5-15 fps... right? most everything is still GPU dependant

From what i have read/seen the difference when intel is faster is only by a couple of FPS So a game that runs at 30fps on AMD may run at 31 or 32fps with intel. Either way it's not worth spending the extra just for a few more fps.
