Richland APU debut, 4.1GHz’s A10-6800K performance measurement
AMD DIY Components Test slider News Product Testing Processor

AMD introduced a new generation APU A10-6800K, today to find out how it performed.

Since the inception of processors with integrated graphics, emphasizing that great cost in recent years, either AMD or Intel, not only the CPU advances, the built-in GPU is also a substantial growth, but the proportion has increased significantly, but today’s CPU performance has demand far more than the general use of the environment, while the majority of users have a very long time in handling multimedia, computing performance so the display is very important!

AMD significantly over the years, including some outstanding performance, I believe that many players have heard about, but in recent years has been actively developing AMD APU processor, after several facelift after the launch of a new Richland APU, currently divided into A6, A8 and A10 (A10-6800K, A10-6700, A8-6600K, A8-6500, A6-6400K) three levels, the fabrication process remained 32nm, design pin compatible Socket FM2 motherboard, which is using AMD platforms One of the advantages, first look at the new Richland APU which features it!


The following description of A10-6800K is attached Richland APU is the most high-end models, the main structure has two Piledriver architecture dual-core module, and have 2MB of L2 cache, more specific is the default clock as high as 4.1GHz, Turbo followed 4.4GHz, compared to the previous generation A10-5800K (3.6GHz/4.2GHz) slight growth; highest part of memory supported DDR3-2133MHz, due to the high price of higher memory clock, the general user needs The following can be recommended 1866MHz, not only the price amiable, performance is relatively stable.

From CPU-Z shows the parameters can be seen in both the technical specifications of a very similar, but AMD said Richland APU adopt new Turbo Core technology, a higher clock and voltage amplitude and can more accurately calculate the temperature changes between the clock and therefore to break the bottleneck higher than ever!

A10-6800K product serial number AD680KW0A44HL, clock 4.1GHz/4.4GHz, TDP is 100W.

Performance on the left to limit players to challenge, we have to continue down the APU introduced significant part within the most important.

If you are concerned about AMD dynamic players, should be easy to find Richland APU’s focus is built Radeon HD 8000 series GPU Core, through GPU-Z can clearly see the model as “Radeon HD 8670D”, but still using VILW4 architecture design ; The total area of ​​more than 42% of the GPU Core built 384 Stream Processors, the default operating frequency of 844MHz, and can with Radeon HD 6450,6570 and 6670 for Dual Graphics parallel computing, although significantly improved within, architecture but it is not compatible with inherent limitations Radeon HD 7000 or HD 8000 series, this is a pity!

GPU-Z parameters, compared with the Radeon HD 7660D, Radeon HD 8670D in addition to the clock outside, Pixel and Texture also slightly improved.

Overall Richland APU Trinity APU is like the advanced version of the technical specifications of the hardware is very similar, but regardless of how the design of the hardware change for consumers is an absolute focus on performance, what Richland APU’s performance is sufficient to convince Consumers pay for it? Part of the test, we have joined the A10-5800K achievements as a control group, make it easier for players to compare the differences before and after two generations.

Test platform:
Processor: A10-6800K/5800K
Motherboard: ASUS F2A85-V PRO
Memory: PATRIOT 1866MHz 8GB × 4
HDD: Kingston HYPERX 240GB
Power Supply: FSP Aurum Xilenser 500W
Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate SP1


After detailed testing, difficult to find A10-6800K in the default condition, the performance has improved in all aspects, because the CPU clock has improved, so the data speed of operation which should have increased a lot, from the above test run The average growth of about 7.5% or so, but for the APU, the internal display is to attract consumers to buy the key conditions, from the 3DMark tests, in addition to the physical part of the test has been significantly improved, the rest of the graphics operations performance is only average growth rate of about 2%, but this does not mean that is the negative comments, I mentioned earlier in the article within the obvious choice consumers will not pursue gaming performance, but little growth can effectively improve the general multimedia processing speed, including web browsing, photo or video and so on.

Therefore, from the point of view of A10-6800K is still a good price, it is recommended that new installations of consumer choice, consumers might want to upgrade the graphics card into the budget or SSD solid state hard drive, this way can have a greater performance feedback!

Out of 10 is divided into the premise, we will give reference to the proposed purchase of 7.5 points.
