i have an a6 and it is WAY worse than an i3. according to benchmarks the a8 is not a lot better than the a6. would go with Intel i3 any day over the a8

i3 is superior in terms of CPU performance.

Only reason to go with an APU like the A8 is if you are low on budget for gaming and need graphics performance. Those chips sacrifice CPU performance for gains in the integrated GPU-performance.

TLDR: i3>any AMD A8/A10

Your comparing two entirely different apples. An A6 and A8 is an integrated chip with GPU on board. If your computer doesn't have a GPU and you want to save money and maybe do some moderate gaming the A8 is the way to go. If you want to game in high quality or do some serious work get the i3 and a decent GPU. Just expect to pay 4x more for that extra power.

AMD A8-3850 $84.99 Quad core

or

Intel I3-3225 Dual core 144.99
(integrated graphics suck) So you would need a graphics card.
