AMD A10-4600M vs E2-1800
AMD A10-4600M advantages
- More CPU cores on the AMD A10-4600M help to process multiple threads or processes at once.
- The microprocessor has higher operating frequency than the E2-1800.
- SSE4.1 and SSE4.2 instructions are enabled on this CPU.
- The microprocessor features AES, or Advanced Encryption Standard, extension to the instruction set. These instructions accelerate AES encryption and decryption, and are valuable if you run applications, that protect your disk or network data.
- The processor incorporates AVX, F16C, FMA4 and XOP instructions. These extensions are not broadly supported by programs yet, however their support should improve in future apps.
- The CPU has FMA3 instruction set extension enabled. The FMA3 technology is only available on AMD processors, for that reason it may not get broad support from software vendors.
- The AMD A10-4600M uses Socket FS1 (FS1r2), and can be removed from it without trouble. This allows easy processor upgrade or downgrade when necessary.
AMD E2-1800 advantages
- The E2-1800 microprocessor is 49% more energy efficient.
A10-4600M vs E2-1800 specifications comparison
The charts below compare the most important characteristics of the AMD E2-1800 and A10-4600M microprocessors. These features, as well as an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a microprocessor performs. The "Operating frequency" graph uses dark color to represent base frequency, while lighter area is for additional frequency, provided by Turbo feature.
