AMD A6-5200 vs Intel Core i3-2308M

Mini Review

AMD A6-5200 advantages

  • The A6-5200 packs more processing cores than the Core i3-2308M microprocessor. Large number of cores helps this processor to handle multiple tasks or heavily multi-threaded programs.
  • The AMD A6-5200 has Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) extension to the instruction set enabled. This technology accelerates AES encryption and decryption, and is beneficial if you run applications, that secure your disk or network data.
  • The A6-5200 supports F16C instructions. These extensions are not broadly used by programs yet, however their support should improve in future apps.
  • The AMD A6-5200 is 29% more energy efficient.

Intel Core i3-2308M advantages

  • The Intel i3-2308M CPU offers higher operating frequency than the A6-5200.
  • Execute disable bit feature, also called NX or XD bit, helps to protect from some types of computer viruses.
  • The Intel i3-2308M fits into Socket G2. The processor can be effortlessly removed from the socket for upgrade or replacement.

A6-5200 vs i3-2308M specifications comparison

The charts below show the difference between Intel Core i3-2308M and A6-5200 most important characteristics. These features, together with an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a processor performs. The "Number of cores / threads" graph displays the number of cores (darker area). Lighter area on the graph represents the number of additional threads, offered by Hyper-Threading technology. Darker area on the "On-chip cache" graph is for the On-chip L2 cache. Lighter area is for the L3 cache cache. While the L3 cache cache is usually larger than the On-chip L2 cache, it is always slower.
