AMD AMD A4-5300

The AMD A4-5300 (not to be confused with the Ryzen 3 5300U from 2021) is a low-end desktop APU based on the Trinity architecture. The chip is produced ​​on a 32 nm process and integrates 1 module with 2 CPU cores clocked at 3.4 GHz to 3.6 GHz. Furthermore, the 5300 has an integrated Radeon HD 7480D graphics unit and a DDR3-1600 dual-channel memory controller.


The CPU core architecture is a redesegn of the Bulldozer architecture called Piledriver. Although marketed as a dual-core processor, the A4-5300 includes two integer cores but only one floating point unit in total. As a result, the CPU is not a true dual-core processor.


The average A4-5300 in our database is in the same league as the Intel Celeron N2940, as far as multi-thread benchmark scores are concerned, making the former a super-slow processor as of 2022.


The integrated DirectX 11-compatible Radeon HD 7480D offers only 128 unified shaders (7660D: 384). The clock rate is 724 MHz with no Boost of any sort. On average, the performance of the HD 7480D GPU is somewhere between the HD Graphics 4000 and HD Graphics 2500 as found on Intel’s Ivy Bridge platform.

Power consumption

This A4 series chip consumes up to 65 W of power. This is in line with most other desktop CPUs, such as the Intel Core i5-6400.
