AMD A6-3620 vs Intel Pentium 4 2.2 GHz

Mini Review

AMD A6-3620 advantages



AMD A6-3620
  • Many more CPU cores on the A6-3620 help to handle multiple processes or heavily multi-threaded programs.
  • The microprocessor supports Enhanced Virus Protection technology, that can protect from certain kinds of computer viruses.
  • The A6-3620 processor has AMD64 feature, that allows it to run 64-bit operating systems. 64-bit OSes are not limited to 3 GB or 4 GB of RAM. On top of that, they are also a bit faster.
  • On-chip AMD-V technology improves performance in virtualization applications.
  • The AMD A6-3620 features 3DNow! instructions. These instructions can enhance performance of some old games. The 3DNow! set was depreciated, and not used in modern programs.
  • The AMD A6-3620 supports SSE3 instructions.
  • This microprocessor has integrated Radeon HD 6530D graphics unit. This GPU is not powerful enough to play latest games with all settings on, however it can be used for casual gaming and 3D apps.
