AMD A10-6800K Richland Review
We can see with the Video Shader Compute results that AMD leave Intel in the dust. The integrated graphics of the APUs thwart the HD2500 by 400% - a result which shall be shown consistently throughout the rest of the review.
Moving on to the two other results on show and we see a complete reversal, with the i3 demolishing the APU's results. We believe that the A/V transcoding favours the Ivy Bridge chip because of its QuickSync support, which rockets the i3 into the lead. With the memory bandwidth tests we see that the 3220's memory controller is superior to the two A10s, with the same RAM producing radically different results. This should be an area for AMD to focus more on, as greater memory bandwidth should do nothing but boost the APU's graphical performance.
