  • 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. ...

  • 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...

  • Power efficiency has also been improved on these Trinity-based desktop APUs, but Intel's architectural and manufacturing advantages give them a huge edge in power. Idle power consumption was similar across all of the platform, but under load the A10-5800K...

  • Onboard video, Price
