AMD Turion 64 MT-32 vs Intel Core i5-4330M

Mini Review

AMD Turion 64 MT-32 advantages

  • The AMD MT-32 has 3DNow! instructions enabled. These instructions can improve performance of some old games. The 3DNow! set was depreciated, and not utilized by modern programs.
  • This CPU is 35% more energy efficient.

Intel Core i5-4330M advantages

  • More CPU cores on the Intel i5-4330M help to tackle multiple processes or heavily multi-threaded tasks.
  • The Intel Core i5-4330M processor includes Hyper-Threading feature, which doubles the number of threads that the CPU can process at once.
  • The microprocessor offers higher operating frequency than the Turion 64 MT-32 CPU.
  • Integrated Virtualization technology enhances performance of virtualized programs.
  • The microprocessor features SSSE3, SSE4.1 and SSE4.2 instructions.
  • The Core i5-4330M incorporates Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) instructions, that accelerate AES encryption. The instructions are valuable if you need to secure your disk or network data.
  • The Intel Core i5-4330M has AVX, AVX2 and FMA3 instructions, introduced in the recent past. While these extensions are not widely used in applications yet, their support should improve in future apps.
  • The processor features on-chip HD 4600 GPU. This GPU replaces low-end graphics card, and thus lowers the cost of the system.
  • Intel actively supports Socket G3, used by the Core i5-4330M, and plans to introduce new processors for the socket in the future.

MT-32 vs i5-4330M specifications comparison

The charts below show the difference between Intel i5-4330M and Turion 64 MT-32 most important characteristics. These features, together with an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a microprocessor performs. The "Number of cores / threads" graph displays the number of cores (darker area). Lighter area on the graph corresponds to the number of extra threads, provided by Hyper-Threading technology. The "Operating frequency" chart uses dark color to represent base frequency, whereas lighter area is for additional 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.
