Hey guys,
I was wondering what Intel CPU the AMD Fusion was comparable to ?

Is it more powerful than the Core 2 Duo ?
Is it right up there with the core i3 ?

wow that was fast, thanks for replying.

when you say older core 2 duo processors, does that mean the later models might be even faster than the AMD Fusion ?
the one in question is the AMD Fusion E-300 1.3GHz.

You're talking about totally different CPUs here. The E8400 was a performance oriented desktop processor. I think it was the second fastest Core 2 Duo released.

The AMD Fusion is designed for low power consumption. Its most suitable deployment is in a notebook for people with modest performance needs, but want more graphical grunt than any intel based notebooks can provide.

The E300/E350 come with their own motherboards and graphics.

The A4 X2 3400 will be quite close to the performance of the E8400 while only costing $70. Whatever you do, don't waste money on a core 2 cpu.
