In terms of overall gaming performance, the AMD APU A10-5750M Quad-Core is very slightly better than the AMD APU A8-7200P Quad-Core when it comes to running the latest games. This also means it will be less likely to bottleneck more powerful GPUs, allowing them to achieve more of their gaming performance potential.

The APU A8-7200P Quad-Core was released over a year more recently than the APU A10-5750M Quad-Core, and so the APU A8-7200P Quad-Core is likely to have better levels of support, and will be more optimized for running the latest games.

The APU A8-7200P Quad-Core and the APU A10-5750M Quad-Core both have 4 cores, which is not likely to be a limiting factor for gaming.

Both the AMD APU A8-7200P Quad-Core and the AMD APU A10-5750M Quad-Core have the same number of threads. Both CPUs have one thread per physical core.

Multiple threads are useful for improving the performance of multi-threaded applications. Additional cores and their accompanying thread will always be beneficial for multi-threaded applications. Hyperthreading will be beneficial for applications optimized for it, but it may slow others down. For games, the number of threads is largely irrelevant, as long as you have at least 2 cores (preferably 4), and hyperthreading can sometimes even hit performance.

More important for gaming than the number of cores and threads is the clock rate. Problematically, unless the two CPUs are from the same family, this can only serve as a general guide and nothing like an exact comparison, because the clock cycles per instruction (CPI) will vary so much.

The APU A8-7200P Quad-Core and APU A10-5750M Quad-Core are not from the same family of CPUs, so their clock speeds are by no means directly comparable. Bear in mind, then, that while the APU A10-5750M Quad-Core has a 0.1 GHz faster frequency, this is not always an indicator that it will be superior in performance, despite frequency being crucial when trying to avoid GPU bottlenecking. As such, we need to look elsewhere for more reliable comparisons.

Aside from the clock rate, the next-most important CPU features for PC game performance are L2 and L3 cache size. Faster than RAM, the more cache available, the more data that can be stored for lightning-fast retrieval. L1 Cache is not usually an issue anymore for gaming, with most high-end CPUs eking out about the same L1 performance, and L2 is more important than L3 - but L3 is still important if you want to reach the highest levels of performance. Bear in mind that although it is better to have a larger cache, the larger it is, the higher the latency, so a balance has to be struck.

The APU A8-7200P Quad-Core and the APU A10-5750M Quad-Core have the same L2 cache size, and neither CPU appears to have an L3 cache. Sadly, there is not enough data to judge based on L1 cache size which CPU would perform better.

The maximum Thermal Design Power is the power in Watts that the CPU will consume in the worst case scenario. The lithography is the semiconductor manufacturing technology being used to create the CPU - the smaller this is, the more transistors that can be fit into the CPU, and the closer the connections. For both the lithography and the TDP, it is the lower the better, because a lower number means a lower amount of power is necessary to run the CPU, and consequently a lower amount of heat is produced.

Both the APU A8-7200P Quad-Core and the APU A10-5750M Quad-Core have the same TDP of 35 Watts, but the APU A8-7200P Quad-Core has a lower lithography size, and so will affect your yearly electricity bills less adversely.

The APU A8-7200P Quad-Core and the APU A10-5750M Quad-Core both have an on-board GPU, which means that they will be capable of running basic graphics applications (i.e., games) without the need for a dedicated graphics card.

On-board GPUs tend to be fairly awful in comparison to dedicated cards from the likes of AMD or Nvidia, but as they are built into the CPU, they also tend to be cheaper and require far less power to run (this makes them a good choice for laptops). We would recommend a dedicated card for running the latest games, but integrated GPUs are improving all the time and casual gamers may find less recent games perform perfectly acceptably.

CPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewAPU A8-7200P Quad-Core is a middle-class processor based on the 28nm, Kaveri microarchitecture.
It offers 4 Cores initially clocked at 2.4 GHz that go up to 3.3GHz, in Turbo Mode and has a power consumption of up to 35 Watts.
It also offers decent integrated graphics called Radeon R5 7200P which should offer modest gaming at 720p.
The APU's performance proves to be average thus, the processor should only be paired with up to fast-middle-class Graphics Cards, such as GeForce 840M.
APU A10-5750M Quad-Core is a high-end mobile processor based on the 32nm, Richland micro-architecture.
It offers 4 Cores, initially clocked at 2.5GHz that go up to 3.5GHz, in Turbo Mode and 4MB of L2 Cache. It features integrated Graphics called Radeon HD 8650G which offer 384 Shader Processing Units and perform substantially better than Radeon HD 7660G. The max memory speed supported by the CPU is DDR3-1866. It consumes up to 35 Watt.
Expect a 10% performance boost when compared to its predecessor (A10-4600M). This CPU is still a bottleneck for high-end GPUs such as Radeon HD 7970M/GeForce GTX 680M and should only be paired with performance GPUs - Radeon HD 7850M/GeForce GTX 660M.
