Nowadays, even at the low-cost market, every CPU manufacturer offers several different products, which makes picking the best option for cost-conscious customer a hard decision.
Nevertheless, our tests have shown some very interesting results. First, there are applications where a four-core processor has a clear advantage over dual-core ones. If you need some performance at one of those tasks at the smallest cost (and power consumption) possible, the A4-5000 is better than the Sempron 2650 and the Celeron J1800. On the other hand, some applications do not take advantage of the extra cores, but they do take advantage of higher clocks.
Other tasks are likely to run faster with a discrete video card installed, and clearly none of the GPUs embedded in the three tested CPUs came near the performance of the Radeon R7 240, which is a low-end video card. Therefore, the A4-5000 processor, as well as the other CPUs included in this test, is not recommended if you plan to play recent games.
Finally, if you are intending to build an inexpensive computer with a very low-power consumption, the AMD A4-5000 is a good deal. Mainly if you run programs that may take advantage of the four cores provided by this CPU.
