I do a lot of multitasking. Many applications loaded up for majority of the time. And so I think core i3 would not be ideal for me. No gaming really, only browsing and some other applications - but really cant settle for a dual core for the many appls opened.
So which is the best 4core or 6core amd cpu I can get for multitasking.
I have gone through all amd lineups - and have thought that trinity would be the one to get - as against other popular 965 BE AND PHENOM2 X6 1055T (the similar or bit lower priced) - why not spend $10-$30 more and get A10 for $125 - which gives apu too.
So A10 ($125) or 965BE (4CORE) ($95) or PHENOM2 X6 1055T (6CORE) ($110) or 6core FX6100. What's best at the moment in AMD ?
And apart from that Is trinity A10-5800K builtin gpu is as good as the radeon 6850 ?
Or if not - then what radeon / nvidia GPU it is as good as ?
"The new partnership gives immediate advantage to AMD devices that are running on Intel processors.
Intel-based PCs will not be as fortunate; receiving only around 2,000 apps through the Windows 8 Store at launch."
"The new Windows 8 PCs and tablets are not the only ones receiving the revamp; existing Windows 7 PCs that are equipped with AMD hardware."
I doubt these apps can be available to older amd cpus too like athlon X4 630 eg.
So the main question is -
SO is there any way of getting those huge no of apps on - the 965 BE (or any previous released amd as X4 630 too ) or intel core i3 ? or just trinity ONLY. Or on trinity laptop too.
If I can use those apps on an old amd or amd laptop or MUCH BETTER INTEL CPU - it would have made a difference.
