En esta pagina hay mucho favoritismo por los Intel. El Phenom lo supera por mucho y dan por ganador al Core i3????. Siempre que comparo algún Amd contra un Intel siempre dan por ganador el Intel y varias veces sin argumentos porque el AMD lo supera por bastante.
phenom II x4 965, es comparable con los i5 de cuarta generacion e incluso con algun i7, nunca con un i3 que ademas solo tiene 2 nucleos, menos cache, frecuencia, etc. A parte de que con el AMD tienes chip sobradisimo para cualquier aplicacion o juego y apenas notaras la diferencia grafica con juegos, eso depende de la tarjeta gráfica que le metas. A parte las APUs de AMD llevan mejores graficas que los i3, pero bueno el que quiera pagar mas por menos o pequeñas diferencias que no vas a usar haya cada uno.
