The A6-3650's CPU cores come in clocked at 2.6GHz, 300Mhz slower than the A8-3850 which is close to a 10% reduction. The HD 6530D GPU however has been stripped far more mercilessly, a 20% reduction in Radeon cores, SIMD and texture units and a 25% reduction in GPU clock speed results in a 40% reduction in GPU compute performance when compared to the A8-3850's HD 6550D.
