AMD A10-6800K Richland Review  

x264 Benchmark

Video conversion is an extremely strenuous ordeal for a processor, but it's something that a HTPC may very well be tasked with. As such, the x264 Benchmark gives a great insight into how each processor would deal with such a work load. 
The Richland processor trades blows with the i3; AMD's chip edging ahead in the second pass average while the 3220 just wins with the first pass. The results also show the clear improvement over the 5800K, though there's still not all that much in it.



wPrime, a hugely popular benchmark of a CPU's ability, shows us much of what we've seen already. The 6800K beats the 5800K pretty handily, but it can't quite catch up with the i3. With more physical cores and a higher clock speed, this proves that architecture plays a big role too, and that Intel's is superior when tasked with wPrime's workload.

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

Good work with the review Josh!
That APU seems like a great little chip, for the money!Quote
