AMD A6-4455M vs Intel Core i5-3317U

Mini Review

AMD A6-4455M advantages

  • Base frequency of the microprocessor is higher than the frequency of the i5-3317U processor.
  • FMA3 and XOP instructions are enabled on this microprocessor. These extensions are not widely used in applications yet, however their support should improve in future apps.
  • The A6-4455M has FMA4 instruction set extension enabled. Only AMD processors offer this technology, therefore not many software vendors may support it in the future.

Intel Core i5-3317U advantages

  • The Intel i5-3317U processor incorporates Hyper-Threading feature, which doubles the number of threads that the CPU can execute simultaneously.

A6-4455M vs i5-3317U specifications comparison

The charts below compare the most important Intel i5-3317U and AMD A6-4455M characteristics. These features, together with an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a microprocessor performs. The "Number of cores / threads" graph displays the number of cores (darker area). Lighter area on the graph corresponds to the number of additional threads, provided by Hyper-Threading technology. The "Operating frequency" chart uses dark color to represent base frequency, whereas lighter area is for extra 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.
