AMD A10-5800B vs Intel Pentium E6300

Mini Review

AMD A10-5800B advantages

  • More CPU cores on the A10-5800B help to process multiple simultaneous threads or tasks.
  • In multi-threaded applications, our estimates show that the processor has 75% better performance.
  • The A10-5800B supports SSE4.1 and SSE4.2 instructions.
  • Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) technology is supported by this CPU. These instructions provide hardware acceleration of AES encryption and decryption, and are beneficial if you need to protect your disk or network data.
  • The A10-5800B includes AVX, F16C, FMA3 and XOP instructions, introduced in the recent past. While these extensions are not extensively used in programs yet, their support should improve in future applications.
  • The processor has FMA4 instruction set extension enabled. The FMA4 technology is only available on AMD processors, thus not many software vendors may support it in the future.
  • Besides 4 CPU cores, the microprocessor embeds Radeon HD 7000 series graphics unit. While this graphics is not powerful enough to run latest games at full resolution, it can be used for casual gaming and 3D apps.
  • The Socket FM2, used by the CPU, is still actively supported by AMD. The company is going to release new CPUs for the socket in the future.

Intel Pentium E6300 advantages

  • According to our estimates, the processor performs 7% better when running single-threaded programs.
  • Power consumption of the Intel Pentium E6300 is lower.

A10-5800B vs E6300 estimated performance

The charts below illustrate relative performance of A10-5800B and Pentium E6300 processors. Performance numbers for Pentium E6300 were determined based on a variety of tests. Results for A10-5800B were derived from test results of other microprocessors with similar core and microarchitecture. It is important to note that the approximation has greater error of margin than results obtained using real-world benchmarks. Also, this is an averaged performance, and the shown results may differ from results, that you may see in individual tests.
