AMD A10-6800K Richland Overclocked Review

We've covered this APU already, but that was at completely stock settings. Let's see what it can do when we turn up the clocks!

Now all we need is a dual graphics review if possible.

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.

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

I am not overly shocked by these results, but I'm incredibly pleased nonetheless. Great little chip AMD has produced, and a great review. Now I have yet another build arrangement to play around with for people who are on a srs budget :-).

If you want to run a proper GPU in your rig, is there any reason to get an APU for that setup? Or a similarly priced AMD CPU would perform better in that config?

Proper GPU, no not really, but if you want a low end GPU (Not exactly which one(s)), you can pair the dGPU with the iGPU, for a sort of Crossfire configuration. But pretty much getting a real GPU is a better idea at that point lol.

Nice review, if I had a spare $500 I would do a rig with one of these and try to make a profit off of it on eBay.

Thanks for the reply.
True, heard about that as well, but from what I know that hybrid crossfire setup is not worth it, maybe I am wrong. Just curious

In my mind APUs with proper GPU's make sense in laptops, I have seen some MSI gaming laptops with top end APU's and a 7970m under the hood... and the price is so attractive! I mean comparing that configuration to an Intel based one is like day and night. Curious if the performance is really that great in real world scenario to justify the paring of such components together.
Currently I am rocking a bit dated Asus multimedia laptop with an Intel 720qm and 5730m in it (still lovin it), but benchmarks suggest that the APU's processor and graphics power surpassed my config. Quite sad, yet I am happy to see AMD moving up.
