A8-7670K vs Pentium Silver J5005 benchmarks

In our benchmarks, the A8-7670K beats the Pentium Silver J5005 in overall performance. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Pentium Silver J5005 in all gaming tests too.

When comparing these CPUs we notice that they have the same number of cores and the same number of threads. These CPUs have different clock speeds. Indeed, the A8-7670K has a significantly higher clock speed compared to the Pentium Silver J5005. Also, the A8-7670K has a significantly higher turbo speed. The Pentium Silver J5005 outputs less heat than A8-7670K thanks to a significantly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption. The info from our database shows that the A8-7670K has more L2 cache than the Pentium Silver J5005

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 A8-7670K has the same number of threads as cores. This means the the CPU does not support hyperthreading.
