A6-7400K vs Pentium 3560M specs and performance

In our benchmarks, the A6-7400K beats the Pentium 3560M in overall performance. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Pentium 3560M in all gaming tests too.

Our spec comparison shows that they have an identical amount of cores and the same number of threads. With our hardware info, we find that the A6-7400K has a significantly higher clock speed than the Pentium 3560M. The Pentium 3560M outputs less heat than A6-7400K 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 A6-7400K has the same number of threads as cores. This means the the CPU does not support hyperthreading.
