A6-5357M vs Core i3-4005U comparison

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Core i3-4005U is faster than the A6-5357M. Despite this, the A6-5357M has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.

Info from our database shows that they both have the same core count but the Core i3-4005U has more threads. Our comparison shows that the A6-5357M has a significantly higher clock speed compared to the Core i3-4005U. The Core i3-4005U outputs less heat than A6-5357M 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 A6-5357M has the same number of threads as cores. This means the the CPU does not support hyperthreading.
