Better... for what?

Putting butter on bread? About the same.

a) for general computing with a little design work, running Ubuntu
b) sorry, it's 2nd gen i5 2520, typo.

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)

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
