AMD A10-5757M vs Intel Core i5-3230M (BGA)

Mini Review

AMD A10-5757M advantages

  • More CPU cores on the A10-5757M help to tackle multiple threads or programs at once.
  • FMA3 and XOP instructions are enabled on this processor. These extensions are not widely supported by applications yet, however their support should improve in future programs.
  • The A10-5757M microprocessor has FMA4 instruction set extension enabled. Only AMD CPUs offer this technology, for that reason it may not get broad support from software vendors.

Intel Core i5-3230M (BGA) advantages

  • The processor comes with higher base frequency than the AMD A10-5757M.

A10-5757M vs i5-3230M specifications comparison

The charts below demonstrate the difference between Intel Core i5-3230M and AMD A10-5757M most important characteristics. These features, along with an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a processor performs. The "Number of cores / threads" graph displays 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, whereas 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. While the L3 cache cache is usually larger than the On-chip L2 cache, it is always slower.
