This site totally hates AMD
I was wondering the same thing.
How is the Intel chip named the winner when the AMD scores higher in all measures except one?
What is it the test that compares the graphics capabilities of the GPU? Is there a small town that relates consumption in watts when performing a particular test? So here shown choose one another is very difficult. So far is a tie, lacking comparative GPU. thanks
The A-10 is much better for overclocking, it has more cores and is generally better value. Yes, it's not hyper-threaded and yes it uses up more wattage, but with twice the cores and better integrated graphics, you're better off with a 5800k or 6800k... This is easily the best value processor in the market!
