Front view of Intel Core i5 6200U

Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i5 6200U

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 14 nm vs 28 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
More l3 cache 3 MB vs None Compared to all cpus, 3 MB l3 cache is just OK

Reasons to consider the
AMD A10 7th Gen A10-9600P

Report a correction
Much more l2 cache 2 MB vs 0.5 MB 4x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Higher turbo clock speed 3.3 GHz vs 2.8 GHz Around 20% higher turbo clock speed
Much higher GPU clock speed 720 MHz vs 300 MHz Around 2.5x higher GPU clock speed
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
More l2 cache per core 0.5 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core

they are in the same tdp range
Yes exactly sir. Since AMDs are really good not just in multithreading but also good in graphic rendering.
Im interested in getting a notebook to play WOW on. Will be running 1366x768 res. What FPS will I get on vid settings 7-9 with this A10-9600p? Cant find anything online how good this a10-9600p handles World of Warcraft. Yes, I already know WOW plays on laptops from 2004... Im looking for specific numbers for this 9600p though. Thanks very Much.
I've been an intel fan from the days back in the 70's when I worked for them. What n exciting time it was. I am still a fan and really only buy Intel core but I have to tell you, AMD is looking like they did back then. Take the A10--9600P, it out preforms the i5-6200U. Check it out for yourself. It's faster, cleaner and has a turbo boost to 3.3 vs 2.8. Like I said, I still buy Intel but I think they have to be looking back alittle. jmo
Ryzen 5????
LMAO I have worked in IT for more than 5 years. Been a hobbyist my whole life. Intels, since about 2011 have been SLAYING AMD chips. They use less power, generate less heat, and perform much faster. Lotterally zero reason to choose AMD before ryzen other than price.
do you think this a10 its enough for autocad and some archi programs as a universitary student ? the configuration will be in a HP PAVILION 15-AW002LA A10-9600P 2.4/16GB/1TB/15.6''/DVD/W10
Intel are way too useless for me. It's useless. Cost much but dead much. I've been using AMD since 2005 but most* of my PC and Laptops running AMD are still working as what they are. While the Intel's I used back then up until now are useless and crap. From the bottom generation up to Now's generation, Intel's way to expensive but way too crappy. So sorry INTEL FANBOYS. Intel for me is useless. AMD is slow in times of clock speeds but AMD is more reliable than Intel. *all of my AMD powered gadgets + (Intel Powered = Junk Shop)
You do realize they are comparing mobile processors not "regular" series CPUs, right? Also the 6200U is a standard Intel processor when released with many laptops (in 2016) and the same for the AMD processor. Tho a better comparison would be the 6267U. Still the AMD would beat it with 4 cores vs 2 (as all the U lines have; would have to get an HQ i5 to even have 4 cores).
The i5 used for this comparison is a weak dual core laptop model. Not the typical flagship chip. Compare the A10 to any of the regular i5 series cpus, and they will outperform the A10 every time. The U series isn't as good. They are throttled. They use very little power, generate very little heat, and as a result they naturally suffer in the performance dept.
