AMD Sempron 140 vs Intel Core 2 Duo E4300

Mini Review

AMD Sempron 140 advantages

  • It is estimated that the microprocessor performs 17% better in single-threaded programs.
  • On-chip AMD-V feature improves performance in virtualization applications.
  • 3DNow! technology is avaialable on this CPU. While the 3DNow! instructions may enhance performance of certain old games and software, they are now obsolete, and they are not used by modern programs.
  • Power consumption of the microprocessor is lower.

Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 advantages

  • More CPU cores on the Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 help to handle multiple processes or heavily multi-threaded tasks.
  • Based on our estimates, the Core 2 Duo E4300 processor has 39% higher performance in multi-threaded applications.
  • The Core 2 Duo E4300 features SSSE3 instructions.

140 vs E4300 estimated performance

The charts in the table below demonstrate performance of Sempron 140 and Core 2 Duo E4300 microprocessors. Results for Sempron 140 were determined based on a number of benchmarks. Performance numbers for Core 2 Duo E4300 were approximated from test results of other processors with the same core and microarchitecture. As a note, the approximation has greater error of margin than results obtained using real-world tests. Additionally, this is an averaged performance, and the difference in individual benchmarks may be worse or better than what you see in the charts below.
