Gigabyte F2A85XM-D3H Review

CineBench R11.5

In case you ever doubted the power of the AMD APU when compared to the Intel HD4000 iGPU, CineBench R11.5 dispels any such worries. The CPU scores are nearly identical, but the combination of the Trinity A8-5600K and the Gigabyte F2A85XM-D3H wallops the Intel offerings in the OpenGL benchmark. Nearly triple the performance. Spectacular. 

x264 HD Benchmark v5

As the quality of the cameras on our phones becomes ever greater, and the ability to share snippets of our daily lives is easier, then video encoding is a larger part of our lives than it's ever been before. The x264 codec is one of the best around and the D3H performs well in both the first and second pass of the x264 Benchmark.

I think it's good to see an AMD setup performing closer to Intel. True you might not be able to get the neatest of setups, but it might be good for someone new to gaming and custom PCs.Quote

I long for the day that an APU has something like a 7850 aboard.

Nice to see AMD doing what they're becoming good at ; providing cheaper stuff that's capable of bits and bobs.

Also nice to see a review of something more mainstream so cheers guys !Quote

right angled SATA cables would neaten it up a bit. But who has a windowed case at that price point?
The lack of VGA out might put some users off though, lots of budget monitors still have them.Quote
