Much more l2 cache 4 MB vs 0.5 MB 8x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 4x more l2 cache per core

Intel may have a higher clock rate, but the fact is that a quad core is generally better than a dual core, even if the dual core is hyper-threaded. I have tested both, and A8 simply runs games smoother than i3.
dont lie me, pussy! dont lie ever again, i know u and u know that :D take this L2 cache per core0.25 MB/core/1 MB/core i3/A8
completely disagree. AMD A8 gives much better game performance I've done side by sides and the AMD A8 murders it in real world performance
Tengo 2 computadoras una con un procesador intel I3 y otra con el AMD A8 y puedo decir que en todo sentido el procesador amd es mejor especialmente por sus potentes prestaciones graficas y que tiene overlock automatico. ---No se que analisis llevaron acabo pero en lo unico que intel supera a AMD es en capacidad de calculo a menor consumo energetico.
