I want to buy a new AMD CPU. Can anyone tell me more about the difference between the Athlon II series and A series
Hi, the older Athlon IIs are just either a dual, triple or quad CPU
on the AM3 / AM3+ Sockets
The AMD A Series are APUs
, they add the graphics card right on the same chip as the CPUs on the FM1 / FM2 Sockets
Otherwise the A series are a bit (5%) faster at most.
