Cores4More cores means more threads and therefore more processes can be run simultaneously
Speed1.6GHzClock frequency indicates processor speed, but is only reliable in comparisons between CPUs of the same family
CodenameKabiniThe code name given by the manufacturers
Release Date09 Apr 2014 The more recent the release, the more likely the CPU will receive up-to-date manufacturer support
TDP25WThe 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 Cache256KBThe 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 Cache2048KBAfter 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 AM1The motherboard socket and CPU socket should match to indicate the CPU is compatible with the motherboard and will fit into it
Integrated GPURadeon HD 8400The integrated GPU in tandem with a compatible motherboard can provide basic graphical utility without the need of a graphics card

Athlon 5150 compatibility review

Overall, the AMD Athlon 5150 has decent performance. Its 4 cores clocked at 1.6 GHz provide mediocre processing speeds but allow multiple processes to be run simultaneously.

The CPU is now over 7 years old, which means it is extremely out of date and is based on very aged technologies. This processor will be dwarfed in performance by its modern counterparts, and will likely have very little support from AMD.

Created with lithographic technology sized at 28 nanometers, the Athlon 5150 is built for extreme speeds and efficiency, and with a Thermal Design Power of 25W it also requires very little power to run.
