  1. Better... for what?

    Putting butter on bread? About the same.
  2. Intel isn't showing any i5-2525M. Where are you seeing it?

    Intel® Core™ i5-2500 Mobile Processor Series

    If you want to check CPU performance benchmarks there are a bunch listed here:
    They even list some desktop CPUs for comparison.

    a) for general computing with a little design work, running Ubuntu
    b) sorry, it's 2nd gen i5 2520, typo.
  4. a) for general computing with a little design work (photoshop and indesign), running Ubuntu alongside windows
    b) sorry, it's 2nd gen i5 2520, typo.
  5. It's going to be a pretty big difference between them for that type of work.

    If you look at the big chart of benchmarks linked above:

    Core i5-2520M is ranked #52
    A8-4500M Trinity is ranked #155 (but with the *asterisk that means incomplete benchmarks or a pre-release test system)
  6. Best answer
    For raw computational processing power, Trinity is more or less out of it's league when being compared to a 2nd generation Sandy Bridge or 3rd generation Ivy Bridge CPU.

    On the other hand, the integrated graphic core in Trinity is a bit more powerful than the Intel HD 4000 graphic core found in mobile Ivy Bridge CPUs. Ranking the performance of integrated graphic is as follows:

    Radeon HD 7460G = Performance (for an integrated solution)
    Intel HD 4000 = Mainstream
    Intel HD 3000 = Budget
  7. Ok, thank you.
  8. Thank you..
