amd a10 vs a8 vs intel i5

new skylake cpus integrated graphics have around the power of a 750

Iris pro caught up to AMD iGPU in performance but is still a tiny bit slower. It isnt available on most intel cpus yet however. And do note he mentioned i5 6200U. the letter U is important, it is mobile and clocks much lower. Mobile verson is only 2 cores too, although it does have 4 thread hyperthreading.

Is R6 even a thing?

 

AMD are generally better for integrated graphics so i would go A10 but dont expect wonders from any.

I5 if you get a dedicated gpu, but a10 otherwise.

That's the Iris Pro whatever the hell it was and that's not out yet.

i5 with dedicated graphics...

A8 or A10 might be tempting but single threaded performance is not as attractive...

If you're on a budget, maybe look for an i3 wih dedicated graphics...

oh and Iris Pro costs more if you're looking at that... (not even sure if i5s will get Iris Pro...)

No, not even close.

The iris pro gpu (the most powerful igpu from intel) was on broadwell.

It was about the same as an hd 7770 (250)

.

But Skylake hd graphics 530 arent as powerful.

the intel hd graphics on i5 loses to amd r7 iGPU miserably. If you leave out the graphics card and were comparing cpus only, a10 7870k is so much better. Intel cpu needs to be paired up with a dedicated video card to game properly. Highest end AMD APUs however can game with a performance similar to console.
