AMD A6-4400M Vs Intel Core i5-2450M

The AMD’s A6-4400M is the Trinity processor launched in 2012 while the Intel’s Core i5-2450M is its Sandy Bridge processor launched a year ago. In processor performance the Intel processor turns out to be better. Check the benchmark results below.

AMD A6-4400M Vs Intel Core i3-2350M

Comparing processors, of different architectures could be difficult, especially since it also involves comparing the integrated graphics as well. The A6-4400M belongs to the AMD’s newer Trinity architecture while the i3-2350M is Intel’s older Sandy Bridge processor. While both are dual core, AMD’s dual core is not 100% dual core. The A6-4400M consists of a module and the module contains two integer cores and a Floating point core. While most processing requirement center around the Integer core ( and in that way, AMD may be justified in calling it a dual core), there are no 100% two cores. Intel on the other hand has two complete cores and has hyperthreading support ( that exploits the idle period between processes to let another process or a thread run on the same core).

AMD A6-4400M Vs A8-4500M

If you wish to increase the performance of a CPU, you have two options – you can either increase the clock frequency or you can increase the number of cores.There are pros and cons of each, but, in general, doubling the number of the cores does not double the performance – You get slightly less than double the performance – more like 75% on the average. Single threaded applications do not benefit much from multiple cores. Whether you increase the number of cores, or you increase the clock frequency, you increase the max power that the processor starts dissipating. And therefore, increasing the number of cores is accompanied by the decrease in the clock frequency. The A6-4400M is a dual core processor while the A8-4500M is a quad core processor. This makes … Read entire article »

A6-4400M Vs A6-3420M benchmark

While the discussion about the features, number of cores and the clock frequency we discussed in the previous post give us some idea, at the end of the day, we need numbers that will compare them in performance. Here are the benchmark results that compare A6-4400M with A6-3420M PassMark CPU Mark Score Benchmark A6-4400M 2670 AMD A6-3420M 2284 3D Mark 06 CPU Benchmark A6-4400M 1811 AMD A6-3420M 2290 Windows 7 Experience Score Benchmark A6-4400M 5.6 AMD A6-3420M 6.7 You can check the clock, number of cores and other detailed comparison in the previous post.

AMD A6-4400M Vs A6-3420M

The AMD’s A6-4400M is its newer Trinity APU while the A6-3420M is its Llano APU. Trinity has improved architecture and has better integrated graphics. The A6-4400M is a dual core processor while the A6-3420M is a quad core processor. However, the A6-4400M has a much higher clock frequency  as compared to the A6-3420M ( 2.70 GHz Vs 1.50 GHz). This, along with better architecture, makes A6-4400M better in CPU performance as we will see in the next post. Before that let us take a quick look at the specification and features of the two processors.

FX-8120 Vs FX-6100 benchmark

The benchmark result shows that the FX-8120 is decisively faster than the FX-6100. The only question is do you need the extra power and if you are willing to pay $40 or so extra ( A quick check reveal a price of $185 Vs $145). Passmark Score Here is the result of the passmark score FX-8120 7136 FX-6100 5696 3DMArk06 Comparison FX-8120 5252 FX-6100 4471 Windows 7 Experience Index Wndows 7 Experience index believes that you start getting diminishing result because of the increased performance. Obviously the scores are close for the two processors. But this is how the real world is.

AMD FX-8120 Vs FX-6100

FX-8120 and FX-6100 are AMD’s bulldozer processor for mid to high end computing. While AMD could not compete at the very high end with its bulldozer processors, it slashed prices, making it competitive against the mid range Intel desktop processors. Clock and Number of Cores Since both these processors belong to the same architecture, it is possible to draw some quick conclusion based upon the number of cores and clock frequency. The FX-8120 is an eight core processor, while the FX-6100 is a 6 core processor. In reality the increased number of cores does not fully translate into proportional increase in processing power. The FX-61000 suffers with lower number of cores, but has higher clock frequency ( 3.3 GHz Vs 3.1 GHz), mitigating some of the losses due to lower number of … Read entire article »

FX-8120 Vs i5-3570K benchmark

At the end of day, you need some kind of benchmark to compare to processors. Since the processor architectures are different, they can have different performance level at the same number of cores and clock frequency. The first performance report we have is from passmark benchmark. Take a look at the benchmark results below. FX-8120 7136 i5-3570k 7840 Clearly, the i5-3570K is leading. Of course the i5-3570K is also expensive and this is something you need to keep in mind. Do you really need the performance offered by i5-3570K ? For detailed specification based comparison look at the previous post. … Read entire article »

AMD FX-8120 Vs Core i5-3570K

The FX-8120 is AMD’s bulldozer processor. It is not an APU, a term that AMD uses for a set of its processors that contains integrated graphics. The i5-3570K, on the other hand, is Intel’s Ivy Bridge processor, that comes with the HD Graphics 4000, which made significant improvement over the earlier Sandy Bridge’s HD Graphics 3000. The we have one quick advantage of the i5-3570K over the FX-8120. The HD Graphics 4000 will not allow you to play all the modern games especially in high settings, but is good for many games at low settings. The Diablo 3, for example can be played at 40 fps. It turns out that the i5-3570K is also better in processor performance. We will come to that on the next page, but before that, let … Read entire article »

AMD FX-8120 Vs Core i5-3550

The Intel’s Ivy Bridge i5-3550 out to be slightly better than the AMD’s FX-8120 in processor performance. On the top of it, it comes with an integrated graphics – HD Graphics 2500. AMD’s FX-8120 bulldozer processor does not come with any integrated graphics. Of course, the integrated graphics is not something that will let you play any modern game at a reasonable fps, but it save the cost of an extra graphics card, in case you are not into gaming. Note : We have covered some details of the processor number of core and clock frequency comparison of FX-8120 Vs Core i5-3450 here. You may like to check it – most of the thing apply – except that the i5-3550 is slightly faster than the i5-3450. Table : AMD FX-8120 … Read entire article »
