AMD A4-6300

The A4-6300 is a 1 core CPU from AMD released in 2013. This chip has a bad overall score at 9% in our CPU benchmark. Our gaming benchmark shows that this CPU is an average processor for gaming, with a score of 19%. As for multitasking and heavy workloads, the A4-6300 scores 6% and 6% respectively. Indeed, this is a bad rating for very heavy workloads.

The A4-6300 has 1 cores and 2 threads. This CPU makes use of simultaneous multithreading technology to improve performance on parallel tasks. Each physical CPU core is divided into multiple logical processors. This AMD CPU has a clock speed of 3.7 GHz and a turbo speed of 3.9 GHz : a higher clock speed that can be reached when thermals and power delivery allow. This CPU has a locked multiplier, so you are not able to overclock it beyond this frequency.

As for memory, the A4-6300 makes use of DDR3 memory. The faster the memory, the better. Faster memory means that the CPU doesn't have to wait to get the data it needs. Furthermore, this chip can handle up to 2 channels of RAM, a multichannel memory architecture allows for higher data transfer between the CPU and the memory. However, to take advantage of this, you must have enough memory slots filled.

In terms of cache, the A4-6300 has 96 KiB of level 1 cache, 1 MiB of level 2 cache. This is a fast memory located close to the processor, which stores copies of frequently used data from main memory.

Power and thermals for the AMD A4-6300 CPU are a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of 65 watts. This measures the amount of heat the processor produces when running at full load. This isn't a measure of power consumption, but it's good estimate.
