My basic idea is that AMD A10/A8 processor gets 4 cores, while Intel i5 has only two cores. In other words, with AMD, I can have 4 workers running on my laptop, get job done faster in parallel computing. Their prices, and clock speeds are similar, and I only care about the computation performance but not things like graphic performance and so on, so it seems that I will get advantage using AMD processors. But I could be wrong. Can anyone give me an answer for that? Thanks a lot!
