A12-9720P vs Pentium Silver N5030 specs and performance
In our benchmarks, the A12-9720P beats the Pentium Silver N5030 in overall performance. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Pentium Silver N5030 in all gaming tests too.
Our spec comparison shows that they have an identical amount of cores and the same number of threads. The Pentium Silver N5030 outputs less heat than A12-9720P thanks to a significantly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption.
Modern CPUs generally have more logical cores than physical cores, this means that each core is split into multiple virtual cores, improving efficiency for parallel workloads. For instance, the A12-9720P has the same number of threads as cores. This means the the CPU does not support hyperthreading.
