available
  • Operating frequency of the processor is higher than the frequency of the i5-4670K.
  • XOP instructions are enabled on this microprocessor. These extensions are not widely used by programs yet, but their support should improve in future applications.
  • The AMD A10-7850K CPU supports FMA4 instruction set extension. The FMA4 technology is only offered on AMD CPUs, therefore it may not get broad support from software vendors.
  • Based on current official prices, the AMD A10-7850K is 29% cheaper.

Intel Core i5-4670K advantages



Intel Core i5-4670K
  • The microprocessor includes AVX2 instructions, introduced in the recent past. Even though these extensions are not extensively used in programs yet, this should improve in future applications.
  • The Intel i5-4670K is 12% more energy efficient than the AMD A10-7850K.

A10-7850K vs i5-4670K specifications comparison

The charts below compare the most important characteristics of the Intel Core i5-4670K and A10-7850K processors. These features, together with an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a CPU performs. The "Operating frequency" graph uses dark color for base frequency, while 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.
