A10-9630P vs Core i5-4308U benchmarks

In our benchmarks, the Core i5-4308U beats the A10-9630P in overall performance. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the A10-9630P in all gaming tests too.

In terms of the number of cores of each of these CPUs, the A10-9630P has significantly more cores than the Core i5-4308U. Indeed, the A10-9630P has 4 cores compared to 2 cores found in the Core i5-4308U. But they both have the same number of threads. These CPUs have different clock speeds. Indeed, the Core i5-4308U has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the A10-9630P. The Core i5-4308U outputs less heat than A10-9630P 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. For instance, the A10-9630P has the same number of threads as cores. This means the the CPU does not support hyperthreading.
