AMD A6-4400M - Radeon HD 7520G, 2.7 - 3.2GHz

The AMD A6-4400M dual-core processor is just another accelerated processor coming from AMD. This APU is fabricated using 32 nanometer technology that consists of Dual-channel DDR3 memory controller; PCI Express 2.0; HD Media Accelerator; DVI / DisplayPort / HDMI / VGA display controllers and Radeon HD 7520G graphics controller.

This AMD A6-4400M dual-core processor runs at the base clock speed of 2.7 GHz (2700 MHz) but because of Turbo Core technology, it can automatically overclock up to 3.2 GHz (3200 MHz) when thermal and electrical aspects of the unit are met.

Moreover, this Accelerated Processing Unit (APU), has an integrated graphics controller called Radeon HD 7520G which is DirectX 11-compatible and features 192 shader cores of the Trinity chip, this is fewer compared to Radeon 7660G which has 384 shader cores but because of the Turbo Core technology this GPU will operate anywhere amid 497 to 686 MHz this depends on the existing demand of applications you are using.

Compared to the performance of the integrated GPU in Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge processors still IGPUs in Accelerated Processors like AMD A6-4400M are much powerful. Likewise, this AMD A6-4400M dual-core processor offers 1MB L2 cache and supports 64-bit technology. It has Thermal Design Power of 35 watts which makes it appropriate for laptops with sizes ranging from 14 inches and above.

Compared to other processors this AMD A6-4400M dual-core processor has a PassMark Score of 2682. This performs better compared to Intel Celeron 867 with a rating of 1255, Intel Core i3-2367M with a rating of 1884, and AMD E2-3000M with a rating of 1184. But slower compared to Intel Core i5-3210M with a PassMark rating of 3989, AMD A8-4500M with a rating of 4174, and Intel Core i7 3610QM with a rating of 8384.

Is AMD at par with Intel? I've noticed kasi that PC's or laptops loaded with AMD are cheaper than those loaded with Intel...

Mommy Maye said...

Our netbook is with AMD. The sales person told us it is just the same with Intel. Is that true? thanks.

reese said...

what is the difference in terms of speed? we have a computer shop, we uses intel with higher chips and for a long time quite comfortable with it, for gaming...is AMD do better than intel?

Prettymom said...

great post, this surely help blogger like me who doesn't have any idea about processor

Mylene said...

let us put it this, way not all AMD processors/APUs are bad and not all Intels are good.

Gayle Sabiano said...

Am not a techie person so i leave everything to hubby. I let him read your post though and, I guess, its best you 2 talk about it, hahaha!

ae mi lee said...

We have both intel and AMD. Their performance is quite similar.

Ms. Journ said...

I prefer most intel than AMD. This is just a family choice.. lol.. but thanks for your good review on AMD.

Lalah said...

It can't be a big of a difference, is it?

I'm planning to buy a new PC soon. This would be something that I'll keep in mind. Thanks.

Khimbyrlee Eerlrybmihk said...

I think we have Intel in our laptop. I don't know with out PC yet. :D But, it's informative.

shadz said...

Is this good for gaming, like playing Elder scrolls v Skyrim maybe?

Marielle Faye Garcia said...

Yet again another informative post! :D You never fail to share us the latest.. Thanks!!! ;)

Lady Spring said...

You know this is really the first time I've read a blog that's so technical. Like an instruction manual or something

Anyway, I hope you find an audience for this. You seem to love to do this. :)

krizza said...

I'm also not a techie person but it won't hurt getting these kind of information. :)

Postcard Trail said...

thanks for sharing this information this will be handy when checking specs for computers.

AMD is strong armed by Intel, like Explorer is to Firefox or Opera from systems. Personally I value the AMD processor well over Intel for my Gaming and video editing. Opinions are like armpits so..... I've built systems with various OS and parts of all kinds, my success has been with AMD over Intel. AMD stocks are like $2/share to Intels $20 with a projected decline for both due to tech stock bubble.
