while the a8-4500m is just a dual core
The A8 is advertised as real Quad-core with 4 threads
But don't expect spectacular gaming performance.
I'm expecting at least similar performance than my A8-3870K/Radeon-6550D HTPC.... right ?
...Which means i will be able to run all games currently released with medium to high graphics (my HTPC is running SC2, MW3, D3, L4D2, DI2 at highest graphics)
