AMD A6-1450 vs Intel Core i3-2377M

Mini Review

AMD A6-1450 advantages

  • More CPU cores on the AMD A6-1450 help to tackle multiple threads or programs at once.
  • This processor supports AES instructions, that provide AES encryption acceleration. The technology is useful if you need to protect your disk or network data.
  • The CPU features F16C instructions, introduced in the recent past. Even though these extensions are not widely used by applications yet, their support should improve in future programs.
  • Power consumption of the A6-1450 microprocessor is better.

Intel Core i3-2377M advantages

  • Operating frequency of the processor is higher than the frequency of the AMD A6-1450 microprocessor.
  • Execute disable bit feature, supported by this chip, can protect from some types of computer viruses.

A6-1450 vs i3-2377M specifications comparison

The charts below compare the most important Core i3-2377M and A6-1450 characteristics. These features, as well as an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a processor performs. The "Number of cores / threads" graph displays the number of cores (darker area). Lighter area on the graph represents the number of additional threads, offered by Hyper-Threading technology. The "Operating frequency" chart uses dark color to represent base frequency, whereas lighter area is for extra frequency, provided by Turbo feature. Darker area on the "On-chip cache" graph is for the On-chip L2 cache. Lighter area is for the L3 cache cache. While the L3 cache cache is usually larger than the On-chip L2 cache, it is always slower.
