Core i3-8130U vs A8-5500 comparison

Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Core i3-8130U performs better than the A8-5500. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the A8-5500 in all gaming tests too.

Our spec comparison shows that they have an identical amount of cores and the same number of threads. A Core i3-8130U CPU outputs less heat than a A8-5500 CPU because of its significantly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption.

Modern CPUs generally have more logical cores than physical cores, this means that each core is split into multiple virtual cores, improving efficiency for parallel workloads. Indeed, the Core i3-8130U has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
