APU A6-3600(2.1gHz) vs Intel i5 2500(3.3gHz) Tags: CPUs Intel i5 Last response: June 21, 2012 7:07 PM in CPUs Share adambel2006 June 21, 2012 12:55:38 PM Can you tell me how much better the Intel i5 2500 is from the APU A6-3600(2.1gHz)? I really would like to know.

Therefore, a Core i5 @ 3.3GHz would be about as equivalent to an A6-3600 clocked at 4.1GHz. m 0 l $hawn a b à CPUs June 21, 2012 5:48:17 PM Much much more faster.....all round....both in single as well as multi-threaded stuff In short, the i5-2500 will destroy the A6 without any mercy, there's no competition here, only a heavy, one-sided victory for the i5 But then, the i5 also costs that much more m 0 l Can't find your answer ?

What specifically do you need either one for? At the most strict view, the i5 has absolutely night/day performance in terms of CPU power, but the A6 has better onboard graphics. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
