AMD A6-1450 vs Intel Pentium 3556U

Mini Review

AMD A6-1450 advantages

  • The A6-1450 has more processing cores than the Intel 3556U. Large number of cores helps this processor to handle multiple applications or heavily multi-threaded programs.
  • The AMD A6-1450 CPU has Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) instructions enabled. This extension accelerates AES encryption and decryption, and is beneficial if you need to secure your disk or network data.
  • The AMD A6-1450 features AVX and F16C instructions. These extensions are not broadly supported by applications yet, however their support should improve in future programs.
  • Power consumption of the processor is better.

Intel Pentium 3556U advantages

  • Operating frequency of the Pentium 3556U is higher than the frequency of the AMD A6-1450.
  • Execute disable bit technology, also called NX or XD bit, helps to protect from certain kinds of computer viruses. This feature works on most modern OSes.

A6-1450 vs 3556U specifications comparison

The graphs below compare the most important Pentium 3556U and AMD A6-1450 characteristics. These features, along with an IPC (instructions per cycle) number, determine how well a microprocessor performs. The "Operating frequency" chart uses dark color for base frequency, while 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.
