AMD A4-5000 vs Intel Core i7-3630QM

Mini Review

AMD A4-5000 advantages

  • The A4-5000 is 67% more energy efficient.

Intel Core i7-3630QM advantages

  • The Intel Core i7-3630QM incorporates Hyper-Threading technology. This feature allows each CPU core to execute two threads at once.
  • Operating frequency of the processor is higher than the frequency of the A4-5000.
  • The CPU supports Execute disable bit technology, also called as NX or XD bit, that can protect from certain types of computer viruses. This feature does not work on older operating systems, like Windows 2000, MAC OS 9, and earlier ones.
  • The microprocessor utilizes Socket G2. The CPU can be effortlessly removed from the socket for upgrade or replacement.

A4-5000 vs i7-3630QM specifications comparison

The charts below compare the most important Core i7-3630QM and A4-5000 features. These characteristics, together with an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a CPU 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. While the L3 cache cache is usually larger than the On-chip L2 cache, it is always slower.
