Report a correction
Is hyperthreaded Yes vs No Somewhat common; Maximizes usage of each CPU core
Higher clock speed 2.4 GHz vs 1.9 GHz More than 25% higher clock speed
Newer manufacturing process 22 nms vs 32 nms A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Better PassMark (Single core) score 1,214 vs 848 Around 45% better PassMark (Single core) score
Better 3DMark11 physics score 3,000 vs 2,080 Around 45% better 3DMark11 physics score
Higher Maximum Operating Temperature 105 °C vs 100 °C 5% higher Maximum Operating Temperature
Better geekbench (64-bit) score 4,263 vs 2,875 Around 50% better geekbench (64-bit) score
Better 3DMark06 CPU score 2,988 vs 2,438 Around 25% better 3DMark06 CPU score
Better overclocked clock speed (Water) 2.4 GHz vs 1.9 GHz More than 25% better overclocked clock speed (Water)

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
Much better performance per dollar 13.12 pt/$ vs 4.96 pt/$ Around 2.8x better performance per dollar
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.
