My question is pretty straight forward... while I know the specs of the new Rpi 4B say the 4GB version... I don't know how to really compare its processor to something I'm more familiar with, say regular Intel/AMD processors. Or perhaps a more fair comparison might be laptop/mobile/phablet processors?
I am trying to grasp just how much of a desktop replacement it really is. For example: Would it be equivalent to say an Intel i3 or it's AMD counterpart? or more like an older Intel core2 Duo?
Also does the Rpi off load some of the processing load to it's GPU? Assuming, I'm running a headless raspbian install, would the GPU just sit there idle most of the time after booting?
