Core i5-4690T vs FX-8320E benchmarks

Our benchmark analysis concludes that the Core i5-4690T performs better than the FX-8320E. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the FX-8320E in all gaming tests too.

Our spec comparison shows that they have an identical amount of cores but the FX-8320E has more threads. Our comparison shows that the FX-8320E has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Core i5-4690T. A Core i5-4690T CPU outputs less heat than a FX-8320E 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. For instance, the Core i5-4690T has the same number of threads as cores. This means the the CPU does not support hyperthreading.
