A10-7850K vs Core i5-4340M benchmarks

In our benchmarks, the Core i5-4340M beats the A10-7850K in overall performance. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the A10-7850K in all gaming tests too.

Our spec comparison shows that they have an identical amount of cores and the same number of threads. Our comparison shows that the A10-7850K has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Core i5-4340M. The Core i5-4340M 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.
