Cores2More cores means more threads and therefore more processes can be run simultaneously
Speed3.8GHzClock frequency indicates processor speed, but is only reliable in comparisons between CPUs of the same family
CodenameBristol RidgeThe code name given by the manufacturers
Release Date27 Jul 2020 The more recent the release, the more likely the CPU will receive up-to-date manufacturer support
TDP65WThe lower the TDP, the less power the CPU requires to run and thus the more efficient it is and the less heat it creates
L1 Cache160KBThe bigger the L1 cache, the more data can be stored for lightning CPU access to priority processes (though a bigger cache means a higher latency
L2 Cache1024KBAfter L1 cache, L2 is utilized for slower (but still very fast) data access
Lithography28nmThe smaller the lithographic technology used, the less power is required to run the CPU, and the less heat is created during intense use
CPU SocketSocket AM4The motherboard socket and CPU socket should match to indicate the CPU is compatible with the motherboard and will fit into it
Unlocked MultipliernoAn unlocked clock multiplier means you can adjust the multiplier for an overclocking speed boost

APU A6-9550 4-Core 3.8GHz compatibility review

Overall, the AMD APU A6-9550 4-Core 3.8GHz has good performance. Its 2 cores clocked at 3.8 GHz provide extremely swift processing speeds but allow few processes to be run simultaneously.

The CPU is under a year old, meaning it should be based on recent technologies and manufacturer support should almost certainly still be available.

Created with lithographic technology sized at 28 nanometers, the APU A6-9550 4-Core 3.8GHz is built for extreme speeds and efficiency, and with a Thermal Design Power of 65W the amount of power necessary to run is not excessive.
