AMD A6-4400M advantages
- Base frequency of the AMD A6-4400M is higher than the frequency of the Intel Core i7-3630QM.
- FMA3 and XOP instructions are enabled on this processor. These extensions are not extensively used by programs yet, but their support should improve in future applications.
- The CPU features FMA4 instruction set extension. The FMA4 technology is only offered on AMD processors, therefore not many software vendors may support it in the future.
- Power consumption of the AMD A6-4400M microprocessor is better.
Intel Core i7-3630QM advantages
- The Intel Core i7-3630QM includes more processing cores than the AMD A6-4400M. Large number of cores helps this microprocessor to tackle multiple processes or heavily multi-threaded programs.
- The Intel i7-3630QM incorporates Hyper-Threading feature, which doubles the number of threads that the CPU can run simultaneously.
A6-4400M vs i7-3630QM specifications comparison
The graphs below show the difference between i7-3630QM and AMD A6-4400M most important characteristics. These features, together with an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a processor performs. The "Number of cores / threads" graph shows 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, while 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.
