AMD A10-6800K Richland Review

SiSoft Sandra

We can see with the Video Shader Compute results that AMD leave Intel in the dust. The integrated graphics of the APUs thwart the HD2500 by 400% - a result which shall be shown consistently throughout the rest of the review. 
Moving on to the two other results on show and we see a complete reversal, with the i3 demolishing the APU's results. We believe that the A/V transcoding favours the Ivy Bridge chip because of its QuickSync support, which rockets the i3 into the lead. With the memory bandwidth tests we see that the 3220's memory controller is superior to the two A10s, with the same RAM producing radically different results. This should be an area for AMD to focus more on, as greater memory bandwidth should do nothing but boost the APU's graphical performance.

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

I was expecting a bit of a bump when it came to GPU performance.

But I guess it makes more sense that this is just really a minor refresh, given that Kaveri is supposed to arrive towards the back half of the year.Quote

I don't really understand why you ran your 1600mhz hyper-x at 1333. You have deliberately nerfed performance of the GPU. If users look at other reviews where the correct memory frequency was used (2133) the performance gains of the gpu are noticeable over the 5800k and destroy the intel i-3.

Bottom line - this is not a fair "real world test" who uses 1600mhz ram at 1333 mhz... REALLY.
I mean who even buys 1333mhz ram these days - NOBODY.
My conclusion is that you are just a bunch of intel lackeys...
Rerun the test fairly please.Quote

We ran at 1333 as we do ALL stock runs. Even the haswell review stock tests are at 1333 because thats what systems auto set themselves too.

Josh did not have time to run faster mem tests, all results in this review we ran while he was here the other week. Adding in extra mem speeds would have required a: them all to match to be comparable and b: taken twice as long which was just not possible.

I can say in our testing 2133 was not achievable with the Richland APU on test today.Quote
