available
  • This microprocessor performs 4% faster in memory-intensive tasks.
  • The processor incorporates 3DNow! technology. The 3DNow! instruction set helps the microprocessor to perform certain floating-point operations faster, and thus enhance performance in games and software, that support the instructions. This technology is obsolete now, and only some old games and software used them.

Intel Core i5-4670K advantages



Intel Core i5-4670K
  • The Intel Core i5-4670K is 82% faster when running single-threaded tasks.
  • Multi-threaded performance of the CPU is better.
  • The Core i5-4670K features SSSE3, SSE4.1 and SSE4.2 instructions.
  • The i5-4670K has Advanced Encryption Standard extension to the instruction set enabled. These instructions accelerate AES encryption and decryption, and are useful if you need to secure your disk or network data.
  • The processor incorporates AVX, AVX2, F16C and FMA3 instructions. While these extensions are not broadly used by programs yet, their support should improve in future applications.
  • The microprocessor features unlocked clock multiplier. The processor can be freely overclocked on most motherboards to achieve greater performance.
  • Like many modern CPUs, the i5-4670K microprocessor embeds Graphics Processing Unit. This graphics is not fast enough to play latest games at full resolution, however it can be used for casual gaming and 3D apps.
  • Power consumption of the i5-4670K is lower.

Benchmarks

System setup

Below is a complete set of AMD Phenom II X6 1055T (125W) and Intel Core i5-4670K benchmarks from our CPU benchmark database. The former processor was tested on ASRock M3A780GXH/128M motherboard with 2 GB dual-channel Corsair CM3X1024-1333C9 DDR3 memory, and Powercolor 24PRO256M DDR2 (ATI Radeon HD2400). The latter processor was tested on Intel DH87RL motherboard, that had 2 GB dual-channel Corsair TR3X3G1600C9 DDR3 memory, and MSI R6670 1GB GDDR5 (ATI Radeon) graphics.

All tests were performed at default frequency and voltage, using manufacturer's stock fan/heatsink. None of the components were overclocked. Motherboard BIOS options were left at default settings.

The results of all benchmarks are broken into four categories: multi-threaded, single-threaded, memory intensive and graphics / gaming.


Phenom II X6 1055T (125W) vs Intel Core i5-4670K single-threaded benchmarks

Single-threaded benchmarks run on a single CPU core, and do not depend on such features as the number of cores, or Hyper-Threading technology. Additionally, they do not utilize on-chip caches, dedicated to other cores.

Phenom II X6 1055T (125W) vs Intel Core i5-4670K graphics benchmarks

Graphics benchmarks depend on the type of integrated or discrete graphics adapter, and to less extent on the processor performance. Because these benchmarks are synthetic, they may not truly represent gaming performance. However, they still can be used to estimate whether one processor will perform faster or slower than another CPU in games and other 3D tasks.

Important! The processors were tested using different types of graphics adapters, that may not be suitable for comparison.
