Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i5 6200U

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 14 nm vs 28 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Slightly more l3 cache 3 MB vs None Compared to all cpus, 3 MB l3 cache is just OK

Reasons to consider the
AMD A10 7th Gen A10-9600P

Report a correction
Much more l2 cache 2 MB vs 0.5 MB 4x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Higher turbo clock speed 3.3 GHz vs 2.8 GHz Around 20% higher turbo clock speed
Much higher GPU clock speed 720 MHz vs 300 MHz Around 2.5x higher GPU clock speed
Significantly more l2 cache per core 0.5 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once

The i5 used for this comparison is a weak dual core laptop model. Not the typical flagship chip. Compare the A10 to any of the regular i5 series cpus, and they will outperform the A10 every time. The U series isn't as good. They are throttled. They use very little power, generate very little heat, and as a result they naturally suffer in the performance dept.
I'm typing on the I-5 Processor herein referenced in this article. I like it. HOWEVER, To the left of me is the Amd A10-9600p which I just repaired. I LOVE IT. It's a no-brainer to me, the A10-9600p is the clear winner in regards to speed in which it responds to my commands. ClickDoneClickDoneClickClickDone End of story.
