The AMD’s A10-5700 belongs to its Trinity Series, while the Core i7-3770 is Intel’s Ivy Bridge desktop processor. In the CPU performance, the Intel’s i7-3770 is substantially better.
- The Ivy Bridge has a better architecture.
- The i7-3770 supports Hyperthreading ( 10% advantage)
- The Trinity A10-5700′s 4 cores are not full cores – These are actually 2 module parts with each module has 2 Integer core and single Floating point core.
On the other hand the A10-5700 comes with a better integrated graphics – Radeon HD 7660D. You may like to check the integrated graphics comparison in the forum thread here.

Some more details of A10-5700
The Trinity A10-5700 APU brings with it improve integrated graphics , better pile driver core all while keeping the power envelope in 65 Watts – at the lower end for the desktop APUs. It makes up a great processor for gaming, especially when you do not wish to spend extra bucks on graphics card. You will find it more responsive than the Intel’s Sandy Bridge. Intel’s Ivy Bridge is better, in general, in the CPU performance while still trying to catch up AMD in the graphics front.
Some more details of Core i7-3770
The Ivy Bridge processor gains its performance with 22 nm technology over the 32 nm in Sandy Bridge. Even though the processor is not overclocked, its performance makes it a high end desktop processor with a high 3.4 GHz base clock and support for Hyperthreading and Turbo clock. We have a newer HD 4000 integrated graphics which is decent for playing most of the entry level games.
