A6-3650 vs Core i5-3317U comparison

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the A6-3650 is faster than the Core i5-3317U. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Core i5-3317U in all gaming tests too.

When comparing core counts for these CPUs, we notice that the A6-3650 has significantly more cores with 4 compared to the Core i5-3317U that has 2. But they both have the same number of threads. The Core i5-3317U outputs less heat than A6-3650 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 A6-3650 has the same number of threads as cores. This means the the CPU does not support hyperthreading.
