Hello, which laptop will perform better in gaming?

AMD A8-3520M processor with AMD Radeon HD 6620G 7690M Dual Graphics

OR

Intel Core i5-2450M processor with AMD Radeon HD 7690M XT

Details:
Both are 6GB DDR3 RAMs with 5400 rpm and dedicated video memory.

The first one is this:

your help is greatly appreciated folks, I'm in a time squeeze to get a new laptop and can't choose between the two.
Thanks a bunch :)

If both cards are the same then, by logic, more=better. However the i5 is one hell of a CPU. But I'm just running my mouth here I don't know crap about laptops

The I5 is the better processor if you play cpu hungry games like SC2.

Both GPU's are not the same.
The Radeon HD 7690XT is rated better over the Radeon HD 7690 by 15% according to NotebookCheck

The AMD A8-3520M is rated #21 for current CPU's, and the i5-2450M is rated at #13

So, the i5-2450M + Radeon HD 7690XT is better rated in both CPU and GPU standings.

I was actually thinking about getting that setup myself, but I am really hoping to find a

i7-2760QM
or
i7-2860QM with at least an upper Class 2 GPU like the Radeon HD 7690XT or better for around $1000.00

So far all I've found with the i7-2760QMs are the Nvidia GeForce 540M's around $850, and I just don't think it'll be enough for high settings 2 or 3 years down the road.

It's a late response no doubt, but I'm sure people are buying these laptops.
