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

Report a correction
Higher turbo clock speed 3.5 GHz vs 2.8 GHz More than 25% higher turbo clock speed
Higher clock speed 2.9 GHz vs 2.3 GHz More than 25% higher clock speed
Much higher GPU clock speed 800 MHz vs 300 MHz Around 2.8x higher GPU clock speed
More l2 cache 1 MB vs 0.5 MB 2x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
More l2 cache per core 0.5 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core

amd benchmark vs reality is very different :(
The data is correct A9 does have higher clocks.However the i5-6200u is not a comparable chip clock for clock; in fact it's about x1.5 faster than the A9 in most operations.
I have amd a9 d-c 9420 8gb ram But when iinstall sniper 2 it showed my ram is only 2gb.whats happend?
So want to buy a computer but not sure the difference between processors A9, A12 or an I5? Which is better
No idea suppose but the AMD looks better option
ihave an Acer laptop with A12 9700p,16 gb DDR42400 ram, 156gb ssd, 1TB hdd, r7 int gr and a dedicated chip for vram. Its pretty awesome
The AMD A9 generation is generally a masterpiece because of its performance compared to intel, I purchased an acer laptop recently which I intended to give to my daughter for her birthday. I compared the two processors and I know AMD is better. If you ever find yourself in need of the service of a reliable and trustworthy, you don't have to waste your time or money in contacting fake hacker. you have been lucky to get this recommendation so don't take it for granted. Binaryhack3r(a)Protonmail(.)com is a real gentleman whenever it comes to hacking, I have never meet an intelligent, calm and respectful hacker who can be trusted.
If the motherboard of the laptop has two ram slots and supports dual channel configuration you just add a ram stick on the free slot
so, how i can do for configure to dual channel?
Mad pay dual core a9 processor it's good or bad as compared i3or i5 any one tell me please
if your ram is configured on single channel is really bad. for example: 8gb single channel <<< 8gb dual channel. When you use your integrated graphics the ram works like the vram of a dedicated graphics card, and when is configured on dual channel the ram has twice the bandwith to work.
software drivers maybe solve your concern
I have AMD A9 and it can't even play CS:GO? I don't understand why it can't. Can you or somebody els tell me why it can't when on the paper there should be no problems in gaming?
The Cpus are comparable. But their on chip Gpus are no where near equal. Better to look for the A12-9700P if you want better performance. It is a quad core
I want gaming+multitasking for which processor i go AMD a8, i3, AMD a9 please give answer
Go for AMD a9 that's better for gaming also
AMD is strong and more powerfull
Useful information thanks
So AMD A9-9400 processor is better than i3 & i5? I don't understand the check marks on bottom. Also can someone give feedback on these specs: 7th Gen Dual Core A9-9400 Processor 2.40GHz, Turbo Boost up to 3.2GHz, 6MB Cache; NVIDIA Geforce GTX 960M with 4GB GDDR5 dedicated Video Memory 8GB DDR4 1600 MHz SDRAM (expandable up to 16GB); 1TB 5400rpm HDD; Thanks.
nice info, thanks...
