    I was just wondering, is the AMD II Turion P520 better than the M520?

    Looking at the number, P520 has higher L2 cache and lower TDP. They all have the same instruction sets. I'll have to say P520 is better than M520. They both uses different socket however.

    Alright thanks [​IMG]. So it should be good for compiling codes, rendering videos/images and plain light gaming (Low-Medium end games) right?

    It should be good enough, as long as you don't play intensive game.
