AMD A10-5800K vs A4-3400

Mini Review

AMD A10-5800K advantages



AMD A10-5800K
  • The A10-5800K microprocessor has 40% better performance in single-threaded applications. It can be up to 61% faster in some benchmarks.
  • Multi-threaded performance of the A10-5800K processor is higher. The performance advantage is task specific. In some of them the AMD A10-5800K CPU could be up to 132% faster.
  • Memory performance of the microprocessor is better.
  • In graphics tasks and games, the processor has 94% higher performance.
  • SSSE3, SSE4.1 and SSE4.2 instructions are enabled on this microprocessor.
  • The AMD A10-5800K incorporates AES extension to the instruction set. This technology provides hardware acceleration of AES encryption and decryption, and is valuable if you need to secure your disk or network data.
  • The A10-5800K features AVX, F16C, FMA3 and XOP instructions. Although these extensions are not broadly used by programs yet, their support should improve in future apps.
  • The CPU includes FMA4 instruction set extension. Only AMD CPUs offer this technology, thus not many software vendors may support it in the future.
  • The A10-5800K is not "locked". Hence, the microprocessor can be freely overclocked on most motherboards to achieve greater performance. Be aware that overclocking can void CPU warranty.
  • AMD has plans to make available more processors for Socket FM2, which is used by the AMD A10-5800K.

AMD A4-3400 advantages



AMD A4-3400
  • The processor includes 3DNow! technology. This technology can boost performance of certain old games and software. The 3DNow! set was depreciated, and not used in modern applications.
  • The A4-3400 microprocessor is 35% more energy efficient than the A10-5800K CPU.

Benchmarks

System setup

Below is a partial set of AMD A10-5800K and A4-3400 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 A10-5800K and A4-3400 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.


A10-5800K vs A4-3400 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.

A10-5800K vs A4-3400 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.
