Hello which of these two CPUs would preform better. I know that Intel's i5-6200U is faster but on the other hand AMD's A6-7310 one has 4 cores. I would be using my laptop for daily usage and occasional online gaming e.g. Runescape etc.

The other question if you could please help me is that as a whole package which one of these laptops would be better preforming for up written criterias.

Computer 1:
CPU: A6-7310 Carrizo (4 cores, cache: 2 MB),
RAM: 8GB
Hard drive: HDD SATA 1TB
Graphics card: AMD Radeon R4

Computer 2:
CPU: i5-6200U Skylake (2 cores, cache 3MB)
RAM: 6GB
Hard drive: HDD SATA 1TB
Graphics card: Nvidia GeForce 920M (cache: 2GB)


Thanks a lot for your help before hand!! I really do appreciate you helping me! :)

The A6-7310 APU will about equal to a 3rd generation Core i3-3217u CPU in terms of raw performance. The Radeon R4 graphics core would be a little slower than the Intel HD 4000 in the Core i3-3217u.

The Intel HD 520 in the i5-6200u is around 50% - 60% more powerful than the Intel HD 4000. The nVidia 920m is probably around 50% more powerful than the Intel HD 520 on average.

Computer 2 has a stronger CPU and a stronger GPU. Computer 1 has more RAM because it will allocate a certain amount of that for video RAM, whereas in computer 2 you have all 6GB for system memory and dedicated vRAM on the 920M.

Another vote for the i5. Who cares about how many cores when they are weaker, for your use you will rarely if ever see the advantage, and in the end the i5 will be just as fast due to its raw overall power.
