- The AMD’s bulldozer processor has been disappointing if the benchmark results are to be believed. The MD Phenom ii x6 1100t and the fx-6100 makes a good comparison as both are hex core and both have the same base clock 3.3 GHz.
- The Bulldozer FX-6100, actually has three modules and each module has two integer cores ( and one Floating point core). The FPs are less frequently used in common computing scenario and this is the reason behind AMD’s architecture.
- The benchmark results suggest that the AMD’s Phenom ii X6 is better and there seems to be no good reason to prefer FX-6100 bulldozer processor.

Some more details of AMD Phenom II X6 1100T
The Hex Core Phenom ii X6 1100T is a low cost gaming / high performance processor that currently competes with the Intel’s 1st and second generation core i5 and core i7 processor. It has been a while since the processor has been launched and gamers are using it for building systems on their existing AM2+/AM3 socket motherboard. With a good gaming card the the 1100T, you may be able to give your existing motherboard a good life. The 2nd gen Sandy Bridge, however, has widened the gap and we have to wait with finger crossed on the new developments. If AMD delays too much this time, it may be going of biz soon.
