It does seem confusing especially as the AMD is a recent CPU release
However the CPU is really only a four core CPU, as is the i5-2500. The 10 compute cores as I read it
is made up of 4 CPU cores and 6 integrated graphics cores based on the R7 (Radeon 7).
The i5-2500 has a better Passmark
, 6227 compared to the AMD of 5431 so that's an immediate difference of 15%.
Lumion requires at minimum a CPU with 6000 Passmarks, refer LUMION 5: Minimum hardware requirements
. So the CPU in the new PC's are actually a backward step in terms of meeting requirements for Lumion.
I can't tell what the clock rate is of the AMD, but the product comes in either 3.2 or 3.9 for desktops. So if it's a 3.2 clock then again that's slower than the i5.
The AMD CPU on that information would simply not allow Lumion to work well at all.
You would need to ask your technical support to also test with a dedicated GPU that meets Lumion requirements.
