Intel Core i5-4430S

18 Reasons why Intel Core i5-4430S is better

than the average

1.Modestly faster CPU clock speed
4 x 2.7GHzvs 4.7 x 2.3GHz (the average)
vs 8 x 8GHz (best: AMD Opteron 6220)
2.Vastly higher ram speed
1600MHzvs 1416MHz (the average)
vs 2873MHz (best: Samsung Exynos 7420)
It can support faster memory, which will give quicker system performance.
3.Lower TDP
65Wvs 67W (the average)
vs 3W (best: Intel Atom Z670)
The thermal design power (TDP) is the maximum amount of power the cooling system needs to dissipate. A lower TDP typically means that it consumes less power.
4.Appreciably smaller semiconductor size
22nmvs 28nm (the average)
vs 10nm (best: MediaTek Helio X30)
A smaller size indicates that the process to create the chip is newer.
5.Newer version of DirectX
11.1vs 10.7 (the average)
vs 12 (best: AMD A10-7870K)
DirectX is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.
6.Has Tri-Gate transistors
Yesvs No (70% don't have it)
An advanced transistor technology developed by Intel that allows lower power consumption and higher speeds.
7.Sizably newer version of PCI Express (PCIe)
3vs 3 (the average)
vs 3 (best: Intel Core i7-4770K)
PCI Express (PCIe) is a high speed expansion card standard, that connects the computer to it's peripherals. Newer versions can support more bandwidth and deliver better performance.
8.Significantly newer version of OpenGL
4vs 4 (the average)
vs 4.5 (best: AMD A10-7860K)
OpenGL is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.
9.Modestly newer version of OpenCL
1.2vs 1.2 (the average)
vs 2 (best: Intel Xeon E3-1275 v5)
Some applications use OpenCL to utilise the power of the graphics processing unit (GPU) for non-graphical computing. Newer versions introduce more functionality and better performance.
10.Has FMA3
Yesvs No (80% don't have it)
FMA3 is used to speed up tasks such as adjusting the contrast of an image or adjusting volume.
11.Has Intel Quick Sync Video
Yesvs No (71% don't have it)
This allows very fast video transcoding times, for example when ripping a DVD or Blu-ray to your computer.
12.Has RdRand
Yesvs No (75% don't have it)
RdRand is an instruction set used for cryptography.
13.Has F16C
Yesvs No (65% don't have it)
F16C is used to speed up tasks such as adjusting the contrast of an image or adjusting volume.
14.Significantly more displays supported
3vs 3 (the average)
vs 4 (best: AMD A10-5800K)
Using multiple displays you can create a larger work space, making it easier to work across multiple applications.
15.Distinctly more GPU execution units
20vs 15 (the average)
vs 48 (best: Intel Xeon E3-1285 v4)
A graphics processing unit (GPU) with a greater number of execution units can deliver better graphics.
16.Noticeably higher clock multiplier
27vs 24 (the average)
vs 47 (best: Intel Core i7-4870HQ)
The clock multiplier controls the speed of the CPU.
17.Faster GPU turbo speed
1100MHzvs 1050MHz (the average)
vs 1350MHz (best: Intel Core i7-3940XM)
When the GPU is running below its limitations, it can boost to a higher clock speed in order to give increased performance.
18.A bit higher SSE version
4.2vs 4.1 (the average)
vs 4.2 (best: Intel Core i7-4770K)
SSE is used to speed up multimedia tasks such as editing an image or adjusting audio volume. Each new version contains new instructions and improvements.
