Any i5 from Sandy Bridge onwards wouldn't break sweat handling anything that taxed the doubled up Jaguar multi-cores in new consoles. The CPU in the new consoles has ridiculously weak single threaded performance. I say sandy bridge onwards but really any Desktop AMD or intel quad-core at 2.8 GHz and up will match the two A4-5000s stuck together CPU solution in the new consoles.|
If devs don't get a handle on on multi-threaded game development, the Jaguar will struggle to keep up with a dual core i3. It's not just about the cores, intel is just vastly superior at IPC (instructions per clock).
A quad-core i5-2500K will match an eight-core FX-8150 in BF3 Caspian Border multi-player.
