Intel i3 4150 or A10-6790K?

I saw these processors (i3 is on sale, normally the 2 cpus are at the same price), and I was wondering which one is better. Also, because I'm on a budget, that is pretty low, I need to run a few months on the integrated gpu
Thx

More about intel 4150 a10 6790k
  1. What is your budget? When would you get the dGPU and what would your budget be then?
  2. Th Intel CPU would probable kick the 6970k's butt
  3. Best answer
    I recommend the i3.. A lot faster per core

    Well the budget is 620$, but I live in Romania, so the prices are a lot different. the GPU... I was thinking at a GTX 750

    Because it has Hyper-threading, right?
  6. Yeap
  7. I still don't understand how hyperthreading works, in i3's case even though it is a dual-core,it has 2 threads per core, so it works like a quad-core??
  8. Will you be overclocking? Also, I suggest getting the R7 260 instead.
  9. its got 4 threads and two core - the extra two threads make it perform like a quad core rather than a dual core

    The CPU or GPU? because if I go with the i3, the cpu is locked

    so, I was kinda right, this is why is the same price as the 6790K
  12. I think I'll go on the i3, lower price ATM, and i get 5 games and a music making software or something like that(Total war rome 2, grid 2, iRacing, Civilization V, World of Ranks RollOut, and the music software : StageLight, so yeah, that's a nice add-on)
  13. The i3-4150 beats the A10-6790K pretty easily in games.

    The question was a "if possible" sort of thing
  15. Correct.. i myself am planning to upgrade my i3 540 to the 4150
    And add a gtx 760.

    No
  17. Pity, you'd be able to get much better performance.
