Core i5-10210U vs A8-7650K specs and performance

In our benchmarks, the Core i5-10210U beats the A8-7650K in overall performance. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the A8-7650K in all gaming tests too.

In terms of the number of cores of each of these CPUs, the Core i5-10210U has significantly more cores than the A8-7650K. Indeed, the Core i5-10210U has 4 cores compared to 2 cores found in the A8-7650K. It also has more threads than the A8-7650K. With our hardware info, we find that the A8-7650K has a significantly higher clock speed than the Core i5-10210U. Despite this, the Core i5-10210U has a slightly higher turbo speed. A Core i5-10210U CPU outputs less heat than a A8-7650K CPU because of its 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 A8-7650K has more L2 cache than the Core i5-10210U

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. Indeed, the Core i5-10210U has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
