AMD A6-3620 vs Intel Core i7-620UE

Mini Review

AMD A6-3620 advantages



AMD A6-3620
  • The A6-3620 includes more CPU cores than the Intel Core i7-620UE. Large number of cores helps this microprocessor to process multiple applications or heavily multi-threaded programs.
  • Operating frequency of the A6-3620 is higher than the frequency of the i7-620UE.
  • The processor supports 3DNow! instructions. The 3DNow! technology allows the CPU to perform certain floating-point operations faster, and thus enhance performance in games and software, that support the instructions. These instruction are obsolete now, and only some old games and software used them.
  • The processor fits into Socket FM1. The CPU can be effortlessly removed from the socket for replacement or upgrade.

  • The CPU features SSSE3, SSE4.1 and SSE4.2 instructions.
  • The Intel i7-620UE microprocessor includes AES technology, that accelerates AES encryption. The technology is beneficial if you need to protect your disk or network data.
  • The CPU is 72% more energy efficient than the AMD A6-3620 microprocessor.

A6-3620 vs i7-620UE specifications comparison

The graphs below compare the most important characteristics of the Intel Core i7-620UE and AMD A6-3620 microprocessors. These features, along with an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a microprocessor performs. The "Number of cores / threads" graph shows 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, while 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.
