How is this CPU better than mine? All the benchmarks I have seen show that Trinity/Richland is faster CPU and GPU-wise than Llano.

In almost every review/benchmark/test I can find, a G850 is actually more powerful than this and other level 8 AMD cpus. So… how is this better than mine? I want to build an AMD machine but not with a less powerful processor than mine.

They are probably same, 9500 was one of the last c2q from Q2 2010, this is based on K-10 like phenom 2 also from 2010
Q9500 was high-end model, while a8-3850 is low cost apu with tuned old K-10 architecture, thats why

Hey Guys. im thinking which of these CPUs is best for Heavy applications like 3d rendering and video editing, and other cpu intensive games. Intel Core i3 2100 (3.1Ghz) --- AMD A8 3850 (2.9Ghz)----AMD Athlon II 640 (3Ghz) TY :)
