– Both processors have same base clock and both can be overclocked.
– The FX-6100 does not come with Integrated graphics. While the HD Graphics 300 ( integrated in the 2500K ) is not great, it is still decent enough for a smooth dual displays and entry level gaming at lower resolution.
– Benchmark results show that Core i5-2500K has slight edge over FX-6100.
