AMD A10-5700 vs Intel Core i5-2400

Mini Review

AMD A10-5700 advantages



AMD A10-5700
  • In graphics programs, this processor is about 244% faster.
  • The AMD A10-5700 features F16C, FMA3 and XOP instructions, that appeared in modern processors not too far ago. Although these extensions are not broadly used in applications yet, their support should improve in future apps.
  • The CPU has FMA4 instruction set extension enabled. The FMA4 technology is only available on AMD microprocessors, thus not many software vendors may support it in the future.
  • Power consumption of the A10-5700 is better.

Intel Core i5-2400 advantages



Intel Core i5-2400
  • In single-threaded applications, the microprocessor has 31% better performance.
  • The CPU has 59% higher performance in multi-threaded tasks.
  • The Intel Core i5-2400 performs 38% faster in memory-intensive programs.

Benchmarks

System setup

Below is a partial set of AMD A10-5700 and Intel Core i5-2400 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 i5-2400 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 i5-2400 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 i5-2400 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.
