AMD A6-3430MX vs E1-1200

Mini Review

AMD A6-3430MX advantages

  • More CPU cores on the A6-3430MX help to tackle many applications or threads at once.
  • The A6-3430MX comes with higher operating frequency than the AMD E1-1200.
  • 3DNow! technology is supported by this processor. These instructions can enhance performance of some old games and software. The 3DNow! set is obsolete now, and not used by modern programs.
  • The CPU utilizes Socket FS1. The processor can be easily removed from the socket for replacement or upgrade.

AMD E1-1200 advantages

  • The CPU features SSSE3 instructions.
  • The E1-1200 is 60% more energy efficient than the A6-3430MX.
