AMD A6-4400M advantages
- Operating frequency of the microprocessor is higher than the frequency of the Core i5-3210M CPU.
- The AMD A6-4400M processor features FMA3 and XOP instructions, that were introduced in modern CPUs not too far ago. While these extensions are not extensively supported by programs yet, their support should improve in future applications.
- The microprocessor has FMA4 instruction set extension enabled. Only AMD processors have this technology, thus it may not get broad support from software vendors.
Intel Core i5-3210M (PGA) advantages
- The Intel i5-3210M integrates Hyper-Threading feature, which allows each CPU core to process two threads at once.
A6-4400M vs i5-3210M specifications comparison
The charts below show the difference between i5-3210M and A6-4400M most important characteristics. These features, along with an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a microprocessor performs. The "Number of cores / threads" graph shows the number of cores (darker area). Lighter area on the graph corresponds to the number of extra threads, offered 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.
