  • Abstract:  AMD's desktop APUs, which combine x86 cores and graphics resources, emerged more than a year ago. We take a Llano-based A8-3870 and compare its performance from 2011 to what you get today using new drivers, application versions, and OpenCL acceleration...

  • Abstract:  We recently hooked up with overclocking guru Sami Mäkinen to get his take on the best way to overclock AMD's A8-3870K APU. Using his advice, we tweaked five retail -3870Ks and compared their overclocked gaming performance to a discrete Radeon HD 6670. ...

  • Abstract:  We update our first look at AMD's A6, A8, and A8 Trinity-based APUs with numbers from an A8-3870K, Core i3-2100, and Core i3-2105. The new results give us a much better idea of how the upcoming architecture will fare in productivity apps and games. Sho...

  • As expected, the AMD A8-3870K performed a touch above the A8-3850 while trading blows in more GPU limited applications. Base performance arguably sits at the top of AMD's 'mainstream' performance bar. As many may be waiting to see what Llano's success...

  • Abstract:  What can you get for £105? How about AMD's top-of-the-line A8-3870K APU with four CPU cores and an integrated Radeon HD 6550D? That's also enough for a Pentium G620 and discrete Radeon HD 6670. We benchmark both to uncover the best budget-oriented opti...

  • Absolute performance of integrated graphics chip
  • Power use, Processor could be faster
  • AMD has made a great step forward with its APUs thanks to a much improved graphics processing unit. However, gamers would still need to use a separate graphics card alongside this APU. Plus, pure processing performances lag behind the competition. ...

  • Abstract:  AMD met with a positive reception for their Llano based A series APU’s – targeting customers working on a relatively tight budget who want an ‘all in one’ chip design for a media center PC or low cost workhorse machine.We are looking at the latest f...

  Published: 2012-02-01, Author: Marc Büchel , review by: ocaholic.ch.english

  • Abstract:  With their Llano APUs, AMD has some very interesting processors in their portfolio. The A8-3870K is the direct successor of the A8-3850. The "K" at the end of the name indicates that this processor comes with an open multiplyer. This means that this part ...

  • When AMD first released the A-Series of APUs they launched products which offered solid mainstream performance at various price points. These chips were able to take advantage of features such as DirectX11, GPU computing and when combined with a mother...

  • Abstract:  Benchmarking 86 CPUs takes a while. After long last, though, we have 51 models from AMD and 35 from Intel tested in our current suite. If you want to know how your processor sizes up to its competition, you'll find plenty of comparison data inside! 86 C...
