AMD A4-3305M advantages
- Incorporated AMD-V technology improves performance in virtualization programs.
- The AMD A4-3305M processor has 3DNow! technology enabled. The 3DNow! instruction set helps the CPU to perform certain floating-point operations faster, and thus boost performance in games, that support the instructions. These instruction are obsolete now, and only some old games and software used them.
Intel Pentium B960 advantages
- This microprocessor offers higher base frequency than the AMD A4-3305M.
- The processor has SSSE3, SSE4.1 and SSE4.2 instructions enabled.
A4-3305M vs B960 specifications comparison
The charts below compare the most important characteristics of the Intel B960 and A4-3305M CPUs. These features, along with an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a microprocessor performs. The "Operating frequency" chart uses dark color for 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. Although the L3 cache cache is usually larger than the On-chip L2 cache, it is always slower.
