A6 = weak quad core CPU + good graphics core (for something that is integrated)
i3 = strong dual core CPU + weaker graphics core than the A6
- The AMD Llano CPU quad core is based on the older Athlon II core which is weaker than the current Phenom II core.
- The dual core i3 CPU can smoke a quad core Phenom II easily.
- The Radeon HD 6520G graphics core in the Llano A6 is a little faster than the desktop Radeon HD 5550.
- The Intel HD 3000 graphics core in the Core i3 is a little faster than the desktop Radeon HD 5450.
