FX-4200 vs Celeron N5100 benchmarks
According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the Celeron N5100 is faster than the FX-4200. Furthermore, our gaming benchmark shows that it also outperforms the FX-4200 in all gaming tests too.
When comparing these CPUs we notice that they have the same number of cores and the same number of threads. The Celeron N5100 outputs less heat than FX-4200 thanks to a significantly lower TDP. This measures the amount of heat they output and can be used to estimate power consumption.
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. For instance, the FX-4200 has the same number of threads as cores. This means the the CPU does not support hyperthreading.
