How good is AMD Fusion Quad-Core A6-3600 2.1GHz with Turbo-core up to 2.3GHz ? I couldn't find any benchmark for it. Is it comparable to a Intel Core i5-2310 2.9 GHz (Benchmark 5853)?
Also, I've seen many PC with Intel HD graphic. How good are they in comparson to ATI or Nvidia? Where do they fit in with the cards I've seen? The ATI cards I've seen so far are
- AMD Radeon HD 6530D (Benchmark 607)
- ATI Radeon HD 6570 (2 GB) with Avivo technology (Benchmark 905)
The nVidia card I've seen so far are:
- NVIDIA GeForce G315 graphics card with 512MB memory (Benchmark 299)
- NVIDIA GeForce G405 (1 GB) with PureVideo HD technology (Benchmark 278)
- NVIDIA GeForce GT 530 (Benchmark 726)
- NVIDIA GT440 1.5 GB Graphics card (Benchmark 852)
- NVIDIA GeForce GT420 (Benchmark 564)

Any integrated graphics sub-system is going to fall behind when compared to a discrete graphics card of similar age. As far as the AMD A4/A6/A8 apu's vs. Intel i3 i3/i5/i7 thing goes... the A4 compares to1st gen. i3's but with better graphics capabilities... the A6 to 2nd gen. i3's again with better graphics.. and the A8 to 2nd gen i5's again with better graphics but falling behind in the CPU department.

Furthermore, in your opinion, should I wait before buying a new desktop? Is now a slum between pc releases?
