available
  • This processor incorporates FMA3 and XOP instructions, that were introduced in the recent past. Even though these extensions are not extensively used by applications yet, their support should improve in future programs.
  • The A10-4600M CPU includes FMA4 instruction set extension. Only AMD microprocessors have this technology, therefore not many software vendors may support it in the future.
  • The processor has 22% lower power consumption than the Intel Core i7-3610QM.

Intel Core i7-3610QM advantages



Intel Core i7-3610QM
  • The Intel i7-3610QM microprocessor integrates Hyper-Threading feature, which doubles the number of threads that the processor can process at once.

A10-4600M vs i7-3610QM specifications comparison

The graphs below compare the most important characteristics of the Intel i7-3610QM and A10-4600M CPUs. These features, along with an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a CPU performs. The "Number of cores / threads" graph displays the number of cores (darker area). Lighter area on the graph corresponds to the number of additional threads, offered by Hyper-Threading technology. The "Operating frequency" chart uses dark color for base frequency, whereas 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.
