AMD A6-7470K

The A6-7470K is a 1 core CPU from AMD released in 2016. This chip has an average overall score at 11% in our CPU benchmark. Our gaming benchmark shows that this CPU is an average processor for gaming, with a score of 24%. As for multitasking and heavy workloads, the A6-7470K scores 8% and 8% respectively. Indeed, this is a bad rating for very heavy workloads.

The A6-7470K 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. This CPU has a locked multiplier, so you are not able to overclock it beyond this frequency.

As for memory, the A6-7470K 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 A6-7470K has 256 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 A6-7470K 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.
