S_elliot 23:06 02 Oct 2015 Locked Need some advice deciding between AMD A8 A8-7410 APU quad core and Intel Core i3-5010U. Your help will be greatly received Secret-Squirrel 11:00 03 Oct 2015 The i3's single-core performance is only marginally better but its overall performance is significantly better so that's the one to go for. Intel CPUs are generally considered superior nowadays. rickf 17:24 03 Oct 2015 I used AMD CPUs for a long time then changed to Intel a couple of years back. Will never go back to AMD's again. Overall I think, from usage, that Intels are more stable and consistent. S_elliot 18:05 03 Oct 2015 Thanks for the advice. The amd is 2.2ghz and the Intel is 2.1ghz, from what you're saying the Intel will still perform quicker? Secret-Squirrel 20:36 03 Oct 2015 The amd is 2.2ghz and the Intel is 2.1ghz.. Yes, but they're different CPUs with different architectures. The AMD has a faster clock speed but doesn't perform as well as the Intel. ........you're saying the Intel will still perform quicker? Yes. Have a look at the CPU benchmark scores here and here if you don't believe me. S_elliot 21:12 03 Oct 2015 Didn't mean for you to think I didn't believe you. Very greatful for the advice.
