Question on CPUs for Laptops running Windows 8 Pro

We have been bombarded with all types of CPUs model and would like EE insight on each:


- AMD A6
- i3-2377M
- i5-3210M
- i5-3317U
- i7-2670QM
- i7-3630QM


What is the speed differences?
Which is the fastest CPU?
We understand that "Q" stands for "Quad", but what is it?
Finally, what would be the equivalent CPU make/model of each Intel if it were AMD

Wow! Thanx for all that info!!

So the faster Inter chip is i7 becuase it has 4 processor in one chip,


What about  i7-3517U (saw a notebook with this cpu).  Noticed it doesn't have QM at the end, is is also Quad or 4 processor in one chip?

so if there is no QM at the end of a i7, it's still  4 processors on one chip ?
