AMD A10-5700 vs Intel Core i5-2310

Mini Review

AMD A10-5700 advantages



AMD A10-5700
  • In games and graphics applications, the AMD A10-5700 CPU is 242% faster.
  • The processor supports F16C, FMA3 and XOP instructions, that appeared in modern microprocessors not too far ago. These extensions are not broadly used in programs yet, but this should improve in future applications.
  • The microprocessor features FMA4 instruction set extension. The FMA4 technology is only offered on AMD CPUs, thus not many software vendors may support it in the future.
  • Power consumption of the AMD A10-5700 processor is lower.

Intel Core i5-2310 advantages



Intel Core i5-2310
  • The microprocessor is 24% faster when running single-threaded programs.
  • Multi-threaded performance of the Intel i5-2310 is better.
  • In memory-intensive applications, the Core i5-2310 CPU is 20% faster.

Benchmarks

System setup

Below is a partial set of AMD A10-5700 and Intel Core i5-2310 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 P8H61-M motherboard, that had 2 GB dual-channel Corsair CM3X1024-1333C9 DDR3 memory, and Integrated on-chip Intel Sandy Bridge graphics. For different system configurations please see tests of A10-5700 and Intel Core i5-2310 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.


A10-5700 vs Intel Core i5-2310 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.

A10-5700 vs Intel Core i5-2310 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.
