AMD A8-3870K Black Edition Review

3D Mark Vantage

A gaming behemoth it certainly isn't, although integrated GPUs have never been benchmark kings. It does throw up a pretty eye-opening result when we compare it to the current Intel option, the HD4000. The HD6550D is a much better performer, especially with the overclock. All previous results were tested with a GTX570 GPU on each of the seperate CPU results.


3D Mark 11

The results are, if anything, even more impressive in 3D Mark 11. It's a mile ahead of the Intel offering and should provide a reasonable level of gaming performance in non-demanding titles.

Have been running one of these in my daughter's rig for a few months now. Its does everything asked of it with consumate ease. Mild gaming and internet browsing - it doesn't even break a sweat. The only thing that I noticed is that HWMonitor doesn't report the temps correctly.Quote

I personally have one of these and i think they are excellent!

Got my iGPU at 800Mhz from the stock 600MHz and most games play in 1080p with medium detail.

Also overclocked my HyperX Blu 1600Mhz to 1866Mhz so i get even better performance.

I would recommend this for anyone who likes some light gaming,Quote
