It may seem strange to review a CPU launched some time ago, but we were curious about if could this model be used for a budget work or gaming computer nowadays.
That’s why we choose to compare it with the FX-6350 (and the A10-7850) rather than the Pentium G4400, which is the direct competitor in terms of price.
So, could the FX-4300 be a good choice? Well, compared to the FX-6350 and the other models we tested, it was just slightly slower on most tests, and on some games, it even performed similarly. As it is inexpensive, the FX-4300 has actually a great cost/benefit ratio and can be a good choice if you are building a computer on a budget.
However, if you are not that short on money, the FX-6350 or the Core i3-6100 are better options, delivering more performance for a little more bucks.
