A4-3420 is a desktop CPU, judging how you're in the mobile section of the forum you probably want to compare apples to apples. lets take a base i5-2430. Compared to AMD A4-3330 and A6-3420 AMD A4-3330MX vs Intel Core i5-2430M (PGA) AMD A6-3420M vs Intel Core i5-2430M i5 compared to A4, is about twice as good. Compared to A6, about 30% faster.
