Core i5-4200Y vs Core i5 M 430 comparison

In our benchmarks, the Core i5 M 430 beats the Core i5-4200Y in overall performance. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Core i5-4200Y in all gaming tests too.

Our spec comparison shows that they have an identical amount of cores and the same number of threads. With our hardware info, we find that the Core i5 M 430 has a significantly higher clock speed than the Core i5-4200Y.

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 Core i5-4200Y has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
