A10-5800K vs Pentium G4520 comparison
According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Pentium G4520 is faster than the A10-5800K. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the A10-5800K in all gaming tests too.
Info from our database shows that they both have the same core count but the A10-5800K has more threads. The Pentium G4520 outputs less heat than A10-5800K thanks to a significantly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption.
The more cores a CPU has, the better the overall performance will be in parallel workloads such as multitasking. Many CPUs have more threads than cores, this means that each physical core is split into multiple logical cores, making them more efficient. Indeed, the A10-5800K has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
