A10-6700 vs Core i7-2635QM benchmarks

Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Core i7-2635QM performs better than the A10-6700. Despite this, the A10-6700 has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.

Our spec comparison shows that they have an identical amount of cores but the Core i7-2635QM has more threads. These CPUs have different clock speeds. Indeed, the A10-6700 has a significantly higher clock speed compared to the Core i7-2635QM. The Core i7-2635QM outputs less heat than A10-6700 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. For instance, the A10-6700 has the same number of threads as cores. This means the the CPU does not support hyperthreading.
