I3 3220 vs AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE

So i was doing some research and i found that I3 is better in gaming?!?

How is that? BTW i have AMD Phenom II 965 BE

Some games will work better on the i3. The 965BE is much better in multicore optimized games such as BF3. And since most games are multicore optimized these days, the 965 is a better choice. 4 physical cores is always better than 2 + 2 HT cores. For normal everyday use both are about the same. http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu_lookup.php?cpu=AMD+Phenom+II+X4+965

Look at this chart, the AMD and the i3 are very close to eachother. The AMD still takes the lead though.


 

Thanks for the info ;P
