AMD A10-6800K Richland Review

AMD's APUs have always been something that we've loved, so now it's time to see how their newest release takes to our testing.

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 work

Good work with the review Josh!
That APU seems like a great little chip, for the money!

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.

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.

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.

If you recommend a product LINK THE REVIEW

Get along or run along. Your choice

Wow, AMD kicking Intel but

Congrats on your first official review Josh
Nice to see the graphs in ascending/descending order as well, they looks so much better like that.

Thanks Tom, I didn't mean to be angry, I just thought that maybe we were being sold a slightly biased story. I rate you guys so highly because of the balance you guys give to your reviews.
I agree with you on the standardisation (eg all at 1333, all at 1600). But I think that in this specific case it would be unfair to not run the A10 at max (2133) and then bump the intel to 2133mhz as well as certainy for the Trinity A series bumping the ram from 1600 to 1800 yielded some neat results.
It's interesting that you say that the A10 was a no go on 2133... Any reason? Unstable?
