AMD cores are not very efficient (in terms of instructions per cycle and picowatts per instruction). In fact, if you look at the CPU architecture, the so-called 4-core AMD CPU is really more akin to a 2-core Intel CPU, since the A10 only has 2 integer units and 1 floating point unit shared among all 4 cores. I don't know about you, but integer units = cores in my book. Anyway, an Intel CPU is something like 50% more efficient per clock at getting things done. The A10 5750M is already running at almost 3 Ghz which is a miracle for a mobile CPU without blowing the power budget. AMD probably cannot get enough yield for a 3.4 Ghz ~ A12 CPU without having to charge so much (maybe $400 per chip) that nobody would buy it (not competitive with Intel's offerings which only have to run at 2.2 Ghz to match its speed.) The GPU of the AMD is marginally better than the HD 4200 and HD 4400. But it is not better than an HD 4600, or Iris (HD 5100) or Iris Pro (HD 5200).
Really depends on what you are looking for. Graphics performance is completely overlooked on this site. Compare the A10 to i7 on graphics is completely lopsided in AMDs favor, works extremely well for me too!
Why does AMD not offer laptop CPUs above the A10 5750M? Even the entry-level 3rd and 4th gen i7s perform more than double as well on passmark than AMD's Finest. Shame, really, was looking into whether Intel really is the only way to go with nice laptops. Looks like it is indeed.
