AMD A8-3870K Black Edition & Hybrid Crossfire Review

AvP and Unigine 0xAA

AMD A8-3870K Black Edition Review

Alien vs Predator

Not exactly a playable frame-rate, but we hope that nobody would purchase this with the intent of running at such extreme resolutions and detail levels that we see from AvP. Adding a £60 graphics card makes a world of difference of course, but it also shows how well the Hybrid-Crossfire works.

Unigine 0xAA

Unquestionably the HD6550D in the A8-3870K is a handy performer for an integrated solution, running the HD4000 close and with the bargain-basement Crossfire arrangement it romps ahead.

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
