A10-6700 vs Core i7-4558U benchmarks

Our benchmark analysis concludes that the A10-6700 performs better than the Core i7-4558U. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Core i7-4558U in all gaming tests too.

With info from our database, we find that the A10-6700 has significantly more cores with 4 cores whereas the Core i7-4558U has 2 cores. But they both have the same number of threads. Our comparison shows that the A10-6700 has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Core i7-4558U. The Core i7-4558U 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.

Modern CPUs generally have more logical cores than physical cores, this means that each core is split into multiple virtual cores, improving efficiency for parallel workloads. For instance, the A10-6700 has the same number of threads as cores. This means the the CPU does not support hyperthreading.
