A10-7700K vs A12-9730P comparison
According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the A12-9730P is faster than the A10-7700K. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the A10-7700K in all gaming tests too.
When comparing core counts for these CPUs, we notice that the A12-9730P has significantly more cores with 4 cores compared to the A10-7700K that has 2 cores. But they both have the same number of threads. These CPUs have different clock speeds. Indeed, the A10-7700K has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the A12-9730P. The A12-9730P outputs less heat than A10-7700K thanks to a significantly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption. In terms of cache, the A10-7700K has significantly more L2 cache when compared to the A12-9730P
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 A10-7700K has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
