A10-7860K vs Core i7-3630QM specs and performance

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Core i7-3630QM is faster than the A10-7860K. Despite this, the A10-7860K has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.

In terms of the number of cores of each of these CPUs, the Core i7-3630QM has significantly more cores than the A10-7860K. Indeed, the Core i7-3630QM has 4 cores compared to 2 cores found in the A10-7860K. It also has more threads than the A10-7860K. With our hardware info, we find that the A10-7860K has a significantly higher clock speed than the Core i7-3630QM. The Core i7-3630QM outputs less heat than A10-7860K 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 A10-7860K has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
