– The AMD’s A4-3300M belongs to the Llano series, while the i5-2430M is a Sandy Bridge processor form Intel.
– Both are dual core processors, however, the i5-2430M also supports Hyperthreading.
– The Clock frequency of the i5-2430M is higher at 2.40 GHz ( Vs 1.90 GHz of A4-3300M).
– Both the processors support Hyperthreading. However, the i5-2430M has a much higher 3.0 max turbo clock frequency.
– Because of the higher clock and a better architecture, the i5-2430M has better processor performance.
– The A4-3300M, however is has better Radeon HD graphics than the Intel’s HD Graphics 3000 in i5-2430M.
