A8-5600K vs Pentium G4560T benchmarks

Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Pentium G4560T performs better than the A8-5600K. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the A8-5600K in all gaming tests too.

Info from our database shows that they both have the same core count and the same number of threads. The Pentium G4560T outputs less heat than A8-5600K 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. Indeed, the A8-5600K has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
