A6-7480 vs Core i5-2415M specs and performance
In our benchmarks, the A6-7480 beats the Core i5-2415M in overall performance. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Core i5-2415M in all gaming tests too.
When comparing these CPUs we notice that they have the same number of cores but the Core i5-2415M has more threads. The Core i5-2415M outputs less heat than A6-7480 thanks to a significantly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption.
Most CPUs have more threads than cores. This technology, colloquially called hyperthreading, improves performance by splitting a core into multiple virtual ones. This provides more efficient utilisation of a core. For instance, the A6-7480 has the same number of threads as cores. This means the the CPU does not support hyperthreading.
