Reasons to consider the
AMD A8 4500M

Report a correction
Much more l2 cache 4 MB vs 1 MB 4x 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 better performance per dollar 11.9 pt/$ vs 6.82 pt/$ Around 75% better performance per dollar
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Newer May, 2012 vs Jun, 2010 Release date over 1 years later
Slightly better PassMark score 2,671 vs 2,033 More than 30% better PassMark score
