A4-5300 vs Core i5-4300Y comparison

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Core i5-4300Y is faster than the A4-5300. Despite this, the A4-5300 has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.

Our spec comparison shows that they have an identical amount of cores but the Core i5-4300Y has more threads. The Core i5-4300Y outputs less heat than A4-5300 thanks to a significantly 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 A4-5300 has the same number of threads as cores. This means the the CPU does not support hyperthreading.
