A10-7800 vs Core i3-4170 benchmarks

Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Core i3-4170 performs better than the A10-7800. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the A10-7800 in all gaming tests too.

When comparing these CPUs we notice that they have the same number of cores and the same number of threads. With our hardware info, we find that the Core i3-4170 has a slightly higher clock speed than the A10-7800. The Core i3-4170 outputs less heat than A10-7800 thanks to a slightly 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 A10-7800 has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
