The A6-9225 is a 2 core CPU from AMD. This chip has a bad overall score at 8% in our CPU benchmark. Our gaming benchmark shows that this CPU is an average processor for gaming, with a score of 18%. As for multitasking and heavy workloads, the A6-9225 scores 6% and 6% respectively. Indeed, this is a bad rating for very heavy workloads.
The A6-9225 has 2 cores and 2 threads. This chip has no simultaneous multithreading support, as it has the same number of cores as threads. This AMD CPU has a clock speed of 2.6 GHz.
As for memory, the A6-9225 makes use of DDR4 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 1 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 A6-9225 has 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.
This CPU has fast connectivity with support for PCI-Express Gen 3. The faster the PCIe link, the better. This allows for better performance with GPUs and NVME SSDs.
Power and thermals for the AMD A6-9225 CPU are a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of 15 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.
