Front view of AMD A4 5300

Reasons to consider the
AMD A4 5300

Report a correction
Newer manufacturing process 32 nms vs 130 nms A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much higher clock speed 3.4 GHz vs 1.8 GHz Around 90% higher clock speed
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
Has vitualization support Yes vs No Somewhat common; Boosts performance of virtual machines
Much better PassMark (Single core) score 1,269 vs 528 Around 2.5x better PassMark (Single core) score
Slightly newer Oct, 2012 vs May, 2004 Release date over 8 years later
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.34 GHz vs 2.37 GHz Around 85% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Lower typical power consumption 52.81W vs 72.31W More than 25% lower typical power consumption
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Better PassMark score 2,028 vs 440 More than 4.5x better PassMark score
More threads 2 vs 1 Twice as many threads
Better performance per watt 6.13 pt/W vs 1.29 pt/W Around 4.8x better performance per watt
Better geekbench (32-bit) score 2,733 vs 1,242 Around 2.2x better geekbench (32-bit) score
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.89 GHz vs 2.59 GHz Around 90% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
More l3 cache per core 0.25 MB/core vs 0 MB/core Compared to all cpus, 0.25 MB/core l3 cache per core is just OK
Lower annual commercial energy cost 56.94 $/year vs 77.96 $/year More than 25% lower annual commercial energy cost
Lower annual home energy cost 15.66 $/year vs 21.44 $/year More than 25% lower annual home energy cost
