  1. i love the "AMD world" :P

    I cant really say... do you mean power? I3's can beat Athlon ii x4's at there own game so i would say the AMD Phenom II X3 740 is a good comparison for high end i3 :)
  2. Mobile or Discrete?
  3. http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/143?vs=188 <-those 2 cpu's in the link are around the same price. The AMD is better at multi threaded apps as it has 4 cores, apps that are not threaded so well the dual core i3 wins. Overall the AMD would be my choice, but if your purely interested in gaming performance the i3 has the edge at the moment. You can only expect future games releases to take more advantage of more than 2 cores though, which is another reason to chose the AMD.
