Core i5-4210M vs Athlon II X4 635 comparison
According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Athlon II X4 635 is faster than the Core i5-4210M. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the Core i5-4210M in all gaming tests too.
With info from our database, we find that the Athlon II X4 635 has significantly more cores with 4 cores whereas the Core i5-4210M has 2 cores. But they both have the same number of threads. These CPUs have different clock speeds. Indeed, the Athlon II X4 635 has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Core i5-4210M.
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 i5-4210M has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
