AMD A6-4400M advantages
- The A6-4400M comes with higher operating frequency than the Intel i3-3110M.
- The A6-4400M supports AES technology, that provides AES encryption acceleration. The technology is valuable if you need to secure your disk or network data.
- FMA3 and XOP instructions are enabled on this CPU. These extensions are not broadly supported by applications yet, however their support should improve in future programs.
- The microprocessor has FMA4 instruction set extension enabled. The FMA4 technology is only offered on AMD CPUs, therefore not many software vendors may support it in the future.
- The processor works in Socket FS1 (FS1r2). The microprocessor can be easily removed from the socket for upgrade or replacement.
Intel Core i3-3110M (BGA) advantages
- The Core i3-3110M CPU includes Hyper-Threading feature, which allows this processor to execute twice as many threads.
A6-4400M vs i3-3110M specifications comparison
The graphs below demonstrate the difference between Intel i3-3110M and AMD A6-4400M most important characteristics. These features, along with an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a CPU performs. The "Number of cores / threads" graph shows the number of cores (darker area). Lighter area on the graph represents the number of additional threads, provided by Hyper-Threading technology. The "Operating frequency" chart uses dark color to represent base frequency, while 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.
