AMD A4-5300 vs A6-3650

Mini Review

AMD A4-5300 advantages



AMD A4-5300
  • The AMD A4-5300 is 23% faster when running single-threaded programs. The difference in performance is task specific. In some of them this microprocessor could be up to 43% faster.
  • The CPU has SSSE3, SSE4.1 and SSE4.2 instructions enabled.
  • The processor includes Advanced Encryption Standard technology, that provides AES encryption acceleration. The technology is beneficial if you need to secure your disk or network data.
  • The A4-5300 CPU has AVX, F16C, FMA3 and XOP instructions enabled. While these extensions are not widely supported by applications yet, their support should improve in future programs.
  • The A4-5300 processor supports FMA4 instruction set extension. Only AMD processors offer this technology, thus not many software vendors may support it in the future.
  • Power consumption of the CPU is lower.
  • The A4-5300 is priced 39% cheaper.
  • The A4-5300 microprocessor has 41% better price/performance ratio than the A6-3650 processor.
  • The Socket FM2, used by the microprocessor, is still actively supported by AMD. The company is going to release new products for the socket in the future.

AMD A6-3650 advantages



AMD A6-3650
  • In multi-threaded programs, the AMD A6-3650 has 97% higher performance.
  • In memory-intensive tasks, the A6-3650 CPU has 22% better performance.
  • The processor is 13% faster in games and graphics programs.
  • The AMD A6-3650 CPU supports 3DNow! technology. The 3DNow! instruction set allows the microprocessor to execute certain floating-point operations faster, and thus boost performance in games and software, that support the instructions. These instruction are obsolete now, and only some old games and software used them.

A4-5300 vs A6-3650 performance comparison

The charts below show performance of A4-5300 and A6-3650 microprocessors in different types of programs. To calculate displayed numbers we averaged results for several benchmarks for each specific type of program.

Benchmarks

System setup

Below is a partial set of AMD A4-5300 and A6-3650 benchmarks from our CPU benchmark database. The former processor was tested on ASRock FM2A75 Pro4-M motherboard with 4GB dual-channel Crucial BallistixPC3-14900 (DDR3-1866) memory, and Integrated on-chip ATI Radeon 7000-series graphics. The latter processor was tested on ASUS F1A75-V Pro motherboard, that had 4GB dual-channel Crucial BallistixPC3-14900 (DDR3-1866) memory, and Integrated on-chip ATI Radeon 6000-series graphics. For different system configurations please see tests of A4-5300 and A6-3650 CPUs in our benchmark database.

All tests were performed at default frequency and voltage, using manufacturer's stock fan/heatsink. None of the components were overclocked. Motherboard BIOS options were left at default settings.

The results of all benchmarks are broken into four categories: multi-threaded, single-threaded, memory intensive and graphics / gaming.


A4-5300 vs A6-3650 single-threaded benchmarks

Single-threaded benchmarks run on a single CPU core, and do not depend on such features as the number of cores, or Hyper-Threading technology. Additionally, they do not utilize on-chip caches, dedicated to other cores.

A4-5300 vs A6-3650 graphics benchmarks

Graphics benchmarks depend on the type of integrated or discrete graphics adapter, and to less extent on the processor performance. Because these benchmarks are synthetic, they may not truly represent gaming performance. However, they still can be used to estimate whether one processor will perform faster or slower than another CPU in games and other 3D tasks.
