AMD A10-6800K Richland Overclocked Review

Dirt: Showdown

Showdown is one of the games often bundled with an AMD graphics card and so it makes sense for the APUs to perform well. Running at 1080p with Medium settings the overclocked APU performs well no matter the MSAA options being used. With no instances of the FPS going below 30 this is hugely promising for the overclocked APU as it once again takes the crown from its stock counterpart. 

SimCity (2013)

Often bundled with APUs, SimCity shows great performance increases with our overclocked system with a ~9FPS improvement. We ran through this game at 1080p and with both Lights and Shadows turned to Low but with every other graphical setting set to maximum.

Something that is easily noticeable is games with high res textures don't see a large boost in performance(10-15%), While older games with less complicated textures are seeing massive 30-50% increases. I am inclined to believe with the evidence shown that there is too much Space + Time between the CPU and Ram. Kaveri just got a lot more exciting xD

Glad the OC + Stock reviews ended up happening in this matter, It really shows how big of a hit you are taking when you do not overclock.Quote

Considerng Richland was more of a tweak off of Trinity; these results show just how great APUs can be in the future.Quote
