A10-7870K vs A10-7890K benchmarks
Our benchmark analysis concludes that the A10-7890K performs better than the A10-7870K. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the A10-7870K in all gaming tests too.
Info from our database shows that they both have the same core count and the same number of threads. With our hardware info, we find that the A10-7890K has a slightly higher clock speed than the A10-7870K. Also, the A10-7890K has a slightly higher turbo speed. Both these chips have an identical TDP (Thermal Design Power). This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption. When comparing cache sizes, these CPUs have an identical amount of L2 cache
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 A10-7870K has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
