AMD A6-5200 vs Intel Core i3-3217U

Mini Review

AMD A6-5200 advantages

  • More CPU cores on the A6-5200 help to tackle multiple simultaneous programs or threads.
  • This microprocessor comes with higher operating frequency than the Intel Core i3-3217U CPU.
  • The processor supports Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) instructions, that accelerate AES encryption. The technology is valuable if you need to protect your disk or network data.

Intel Core i3-3217U advantages

  • Execute disable bit feature, available on this CPU, helps to protect from certain kinds of computer viruses. This technology does not work on old operating systems, such as Windows 2000, MAC OS 9, and earlier ones.
  • The microprocessor is 32% more energy efficient than the A6-5200 processor.

A6-5200 vs i3-3217U specifications comparison

The charts below compare the most important Intel i3-3217U and A6-5200 features. These characteristics, as well as an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a processor 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. 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.
