This AMD A8-4500M quad-core accelerated processor has a clock speed of 1.9GHz due to Turbo Core technology it can automatically overclock up 2.8 GHz, this can be achieved when both thermal and electrical aspects of the system are met.

The AMD A8-4500M also features SSE (1, 2, 3, 3S, 4.1, 4.2, 4A), x86-64, AES, AVX, FMA, AMD-V Hardware Virtualization and 64 Bit support. It has an integrated graphics controller called Radeon HD 7640G which is DirectX 11 compatible and features only 256 shader cores and operates anywhere between 497 to 655 MHz because of Turbo Core technology in the GPU side which depends on the current application demand.

The performance of this integrated GPU, Radeon HD 7640G is almost similar to the dedicated GPU Radeon HD 7610M and more powerful compared to the Intel HD Graphics 4000 available in Ivy Bridge processors. This AMD A8-4500M accelerated processor has a level 2 cache of 4 megabytes. It also has a thermal design power (TDP) rating of 35 watts hence it is suitable for laptop PCs with sizes ranging from 14 inch and above.

This is very useful for those who wants to build their own machine at least they can compare.

Dominique Goh said...

I'm still finding out what's the difference between intel and AMD and what's better for my PC. Most PCs I know are having intel processors.

I never really understood much about the technical stuff about computers. I'm just glad to use one.

Samantha Lee said...

Too many numbers and terms. Anyway, this is really interesting. But I'd prefer Intel processors.

GeriLen Elinessete said...

Thanks for the information.
I really hope you find an audience for this. It's good bit of research and people who really need to know them should. Too bad it's lost on people like us who don't really know what they mean ^^;

Accelerated processors from AMD have powerful GPU compared to their Intel processors counterpart.

First time, I used the AMD Radeon was when I bought my Acer Ferrari in 2005 and which lasted about 5 years with me! It was a great laptop! At that time, I chose the AMD over the Intel because it had higher specs at that time. I am sure now, the specs are really so much faster!

I've AMD A8-4500M on my laptop (ASUS K45DR), but why doen't reach 2.8GHz, only rated at 2.3GHz? Should I add more 4GB RAM again (I've 4GB RAM DDR3 installed)? Regards.
