Passmark says its almost as good as the 110t but all the reviews compare it to the i3 2100. Anyway what would be better 965 or a8 3850?

Looks like its called Liano? And the CPU's are 32nm, compared to previous CPU's. Which are 45nm?

965 by miles. The A8 series are entry- mid-range, with some admittedly really good integrated graphics etc, but not a high-end CPU. The new FX line will be out shortly...

any expectations on the price of the quad core fx?
