I used exact same i3 and I'm currently using A8-4500m CPU and I can say AMD wins it. A8 performance is significantly higher than i3. Intel's i3 should be compared to A6 not A8 models. Sorry for my bad english
They are just selling the Intel.... An Intel Core-3 is no match, by far, to a AMD A8. Period! CPUBOSS.COM, ...you are loosing authority...
Whatever you say, AMD A8 may have lesser specifications than i3 But, it still doesnt' change the fact that AMD gives us better performance when used
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.
