AMD A series GHz vs others in this discussion Tags: CPUs AMD Last response: November 9, 2011 5:51 AM in CPUs Share Parront November 9, 2011 5:27:04 AM Hello, Geeksalive says that the A series are fast and very fast. Can someone explain how that can be when the clocks are slower than the other processors? I have five more days to decide if I should keep a laptop purchase that has AMD A6 3400M, but rated at 1.6 GHz. I don't understand why the quad core A6 is rated slower than the dual core A4, and the E350. Thanks tons.

For an example: the i7-2600k at stock clocks 3.4ghz still performs better than a fx-8150 at 4ghz. Better architecture gives better performance. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
