    I don't think you can compare it to an Intel Processor. The most important Specs it has is 4 cores and 4 threads, it includes a Radeon GPU and it requires ca 35 Watt, and is a 64 bit Processor with VT technologies included. For an entry level notebook CPU that's pretty good.

    See if you want to compare it against Intel chips.

    You'll have to scroll down the chart to find it.

    This is only comparing CPU performance according to Passmark's tests.

    OK, as an example from that chart,
    is way above..

    is below..

    so, if that test was well done, would be fair to say this AMD performs 'somewhere' in between i3 and i7, even though I agree as you said that there is no apple to apple specific comparison.

    See the graphic below.  From there it looks like it is the equivalent of an i7 Quad running at 1.73 GHz or a Core 2 Quad at 2.5 GHz.

    However (see the chart on Page 2 of the review) finds it lacking in grunt compared to the i3 and i5 chip it was up against.

    Really depends on what tests are applied to the CPUs.
