Battle of Budget CPUs

Intel makes some great products and lately they've been dominating the mid-high end market when it comes to sheer performance.  Today, HardwareSecrets has a look at the Core i3-2105 and compares it to AMD's latest A8-3870K APU to determine if AMD has an entry-level winner on their hands.

Since the A8-3870K comes with its clock multiplier unlocked, this gives us an extra option to push the clock of this CPU. Its default clock multiplier is x30 with a base clock of 100 MHz, generating its internal clock of 3 GHz (100 MHz x 30). We were able to easily increase the clock multiplier to x34.
