AMD A10-6800K Richland Review


AMD A10-6800K Richland Review


Futuremark's PCMark benchmarks are great for testing the overall performance of a system. Tests include processor performance, web browsing, spreadsheets and image manipulation to name a few, and the results should indicate how well the processors are affecting the overall system.

PCMark Vantage

PCMark Vantage gives us a mixed bag of results. Though the overall PCMark score follows the same trend as other benchmarks, with the Richland APU just beating the 5800K, and the i3 trailing behind a little more. However, when we look at the Gaming and Productivity results we see that the i3 trumps the other chips. 


The Richland and the Ivy Bridge processors are pretty much neck and neck here, with the 6800K just taking the lead. We also see one of the biggest improvements for the 6800K over the 5800K, with the Trinity chip trailing a good 450 points behind its successor.

I wonder how much the 2133mhz memory would improve scores? Apu's are known for loving fast speeds so running at 2133mhz vs 1333mhz should improve scores quite a bit I would assume. Nevertheless still a great chip.

Good job on this review Josh! I was actually surprised. In the first page(not trying to be picky) I felt there were way to many commas. I ain't no English major but seems too many were used
Keep up the good workQuote
