GPU performance is similar, it's just that more apps are optimised with the Note 2 and the Mega is just 2 months old.
Benchmarks show that Mega is better than the Note 2 in the following: Source1 Source2

The Mega also has the newer version of Android and Touchwiz . Price wise, the Note 2 is more expensive than the Mega here in the UK. If you're buying it from new, the Mega is just 2 months old while the Note 2 is over a year old.
Exactly most of the reasons why I will get the Mega to replace my now almost 21 month old original Note.
I have been holding on and skipping devices that really appealing to me(LG Pro, Oppo, Sony Xperia Z, etc) for the Note 3.
I was going to order the Xperia Z Ultra but thankfully I convinced my self otherwise. I'm not playing many games now days nor using it heavily.
Mostly for above average media consumption, light gaming, browsing.
Also as I said I was waiting for the Note 3 since the day Note 2 was announced since I decided to skip a generation.
And thankfully I decided to skip the Note 3 for the Mega. I really wanna go even bigger this time. I don't mind the mid-range performance.
And since my original Note with Asylum 4.3 now feels so incredible(it felt good with custom JB 4.1.2 too), I can only imagine the Mega will blow my mind.
I got the Note 1 at launch and I paid for it quite dearly for it back then.
Now I can get the Mega for 35% cheaper of the Note's price I paid almost 21 months ago. Can't go wrong with that.
