The Reviewed CPUs

Altough the two CPUs tested in this review, the A10-6800K and the Core i3-4150, are not competitors to the A6-6400K and the Pentium G3220, we included the data collected for these two CPUs, which were tested under the same methodology, in order to show the performance difference between mainstream and the value CPUs that make use of the same platform.

In the tables below, we compare the main features of the CPUs included in our review.

CPU Cores HT IGP Internal Clock Turbo Clock Base Clock Core Tech. TDP Socket Price
A10-6800K 4 No Yes 4.1 GHz 4.4 GHz 100 MHz Richland 32 nm 100 W FM2 USD 125
Core i3-4150 2 Yes Yes 3.5 GHz 100 MHz Haswell 22 nm 54 W LGA1150 USD 123
A6-6400K 2 No Yes 3.9 GHz 4.1 GHz 100 MHz Richland 32 nm 65 W FM2 USD 53
Pentium G3220 2 No Yes 3.0 GHz 100 MHz Haswell 22 nm 53 W LGA1150 USD 53

Prices were researched at Newegg.com on the day we published this review. TDP stands for Thermal Design Power and states the maximum amount of heat the CPU can dissipate.

Below you can see the memory configuration for each CPU.
