A10-7850K vs Core i5-2405S comparison

Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Core i5-2405S performs better than the A10-7850K. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the A10-7850K in all gaming tests too.

With info from our database, we find that the Core i5-2405S has significantly more cores with 4 cores whereas the A10-7850K has 2 cores. But they both have the same number of threads. With our hardware info, we find that the A10-7850K has a significantly higher clock speed than the Core i5-2405S. The Core i5-2405S outputs less heat than A10-7850K thanks to a significantly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption.

Most CPUs have more threads than cores. This technology, colloquially called hyperthreading, improves performance by splitting a core into multiple virtual ones. This provides more efficient utilisation of a core. Indeed, the A10-7850K has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
