Anyways I can only suggest you get the benchmarks of each and see which one is the fastest, since these are all AMD&compatible with your laptop I assume the later technology will be more durable & have better performance. By the numbers you can easily tell.
I think (someone correct me if Im wrong) the number 8 or 10 indicate how recent they are (therefore better) while the other numbers indicate what they're all about (more cooling less speed or more speed less cooling more battery) etc.
They both look the same in terms of energy efficiency but the A10 is a little faster but not by much.

thanks for the link to more detailed stuff about the chip might shoot for a better chip that is cheap and play with the laptop to see if its any better than the stock

Most manufacturers hard code the bios to accept only a few processors, regardless of whether the same motherboard could handle more processors. Unless you have verified someone else has done the swap with your exact same model laptop, you're rolling the dice.i7-4770 [stock] - Asus H87M - 16GB Kingston PC3-14200 - Windows 7 Pro x64

What I do is cheap out the spec of the laptop and most times they post what cpu will work with the unit.. Also google upgrading you model to see what bios you have and will work..My Current Build
Project Bane Build
My dog died a while ago.. I had to dig his grave in the pouring rain and it was as if I was digging my own grave and a piece of me died that day with him .....
