FX-9370 vs Core i5-4690 comparison
According to the hardwareDB Benchmark tool, the FX-9370 is faster than the Core i5-4690. Despite this, the Core i5-4690 has the advantage in our gaming benchmark.
When comparing these CPUs we notice that they have the same number of cores but the FX-9370 has more threads. These CPUs have different clock speeds. Indeed, the FX-9370 has a slightly higher clock speed compared to the Core i5-4690. The Core i5-4690 outputs less heat than FX-9370 thanks to a 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. Indeed, the FX-9370 has more threads than cores. Each physical core is split into multiple threads.
