  • We can’t help but be positive about the AMD A8-3850, as it finally delivers on the promise of integrated graphics that offer a reasonable degree of performance. The APU proved to be capable of playing our test games smoothly at low and medium resolutio...

  • Impressive absolute performance of integrated graphics
  • High power consumption in comparison to Intel, A faster CPU is required
  • A great step forward has been made on the APU side with a much improved graphics part. Unfortunately, there still isn't enough graphics muscle to allow you to dispense with a graphics card for gaming. Pure processor performance is also a good deal down on...

  • At last, integrated graphics that are worthy of the name,
  • With AMD's next generation of APU technology fast approaching, it's not that futureproof.

  • The Lynx platform is impressive, but what we're seeing is par for the course from AMD. What the part lacks in raw computing power, in makes up for with a (relatively) powerful integrated graphics processor. Will it be enough? If you're on a tight budge...

  • Offers strong multicore performance and budget gaming at a reasonable price
  • Doesn't outperform its Intel equivalent on many standard programs
  • sBudget gamers in particular should be excited about AMD's new family of APU desktop chips due to their strong 3D performance. We'd hoped to see faster graphics processing in Photoshop CS5 as well, but Intel's standard CPU performance superiority seems
