AMD A8-4500M vs E2-1800

Mini Review

AMD A8-4500M advantages

  • The A8-4500M has more CPU cores than the E2-1800. Large number of cores helps this microprocessor to process multiple simultaneous threads or processes.
  • Operating frequency of the CPU is higher than the frequency of the E2-1800.
  • The microprocessor has SSE4.1 and SSE4.2 instructions enabled.
  • The CPU supports Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) technology. This extension accelerates AES encryption and decryption, and is beneficial if you need to secure your disk or network data.
  • The microprocessor incorporates AVX, F16C, FMA3 and XOP instructions. These extensions are not widely used by applications yet, but their support should improve in future programs.
  • The A8-4500M 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.
  • The processor works in Socket FS1 (FS1r2). The microprocessor can be effortlessly removed from the socket for replacement or upgrade.

AMD E2-1800 advantages

  • The AMD E2-1800 microprocessor is 49% more energy efficient than the A8-4500M.
