AMD A4-5300 vs Intel Pentium 4 2.8 GHz

Mini Review

AMD A4-5300 advantages



AMD A4-5300
  • More CPU cores on the AMD A4-5300 help to tackle multiple simultaneous threads or programs.
  • This processor comes with higher operating frequency than the Pentium 4 2.8 GHz microprocessor.
  • The processor supports Enhanced Virus Protection feature, also called as NX or XD bit, that can protect from some types of computer viruses. This technology does not work on old operating systems, such as Windows 2000, MAC OS 9, and earlier ones.
  • The A4-5300 incorporates AMD64 feature, that allows it to run 64-bit operating systems.
  • Incorporated AMD-V technology enhances performance of virtualized tasks.
  • The CPU has SSSE3, SSE4.1 and SSE4.2 instructions enabled.
  • The microprocessor supports Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) technology. These instructions accelerate AES encryption and decryption, and are useful if you run applications, that secure your disk or network data.
  • The CPU features AVX, F16C, FMA3 and XOP instructions. These extensions are not widely used in programs yet, but their support should improve in future applications.
  • The AMD A4-5300 includes FMA4 instruction set extension. The FMA4 technology is only offered on AMD processors, thus it probably will not get broad support from software vendors.
  • Besides 2 CPU cores, the AMD A4-5300 embeds Radeon HD 7480D GPU. This graphics unit replaces low-end graphics card, and thus lowers the cost of the system.
  • Power consumption of the A4-5300 is better.
  • AMD has plans to offer more microprocessors for Socket FM2, which is used by the processor.

A4-5300 vs Pentium 4 2.8 GHz specifications comparison

The graphs below compare the most important characteristics of the Intel Pentium 4 2.8 GHz and A4-5300 processors. These features, along 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 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.
