AMD A8-6500 vs Intel Core i7-4765T

Mini Review

AMD A8-6500 advantages



AMD A8-6500
  • The A8-6500 has XOP instructions. While these extensions are not extensively supported by applications yet, this should improve in future apps.
  • The microprocessor features FMA4 instruction set extension. The FMA4 technology is only offered on AMD processors, thus not many software vendors may support it in the future.
  • The A8-6500 is priced 68% cheaper.

Intel Core i7-4765T advantages

available
  • The CPU integrates Hyper-Threading feature, which allows this microprocessor to process twice as many threads.
  • Based on our estimates, single-threaded performance of the i7-4765T is better.
  • The processor includes AVX2 instructions, introduced in the recent past. Even though these extensions are not broadly used by programs yet, their support should improve in future apps.
  • The Core i7-4765T is 46% more energy efficient than the A8-6500 CPU.

A8-6500 vs i7-4765T estimated performance

The charts in the table below show performance of A8-6500 and Core i7-4765T microprocessors. Results for A8-6500 were determined based on a variety of tests. Performance numbers for Core i7-4765T were estimated from benchmark results of other CPUs with the same core and microarchitecture. Be advised that the approximation has greater error of margin than results obtained using real-world benchmarks. Additionally, this is an averaged performance, and the displayed results may differ from results, that you may see in individual tests.

A8-6500 vs i7-4765T specifications comparison

The graphs below demonstrate the difference between AMD A8-6500 and Intel i7-4765T most important characteristics. These features, as well as 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 extra threads, provided by Hyper-Threading technology. The "Operating frequency" chart uses dark color to represent base frequency, whereas lighter area is for additional frequency, provided by Turbo feature. 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.
