AMD A8 7600 

First seen on January, 2016
  • 3.1 GHz
  • Quad core

Even with this fairly low maximum Turbo clock, it's clear that Kaveri brings far more raw performance to the table than the older AMD 6500T.

Over time, these GPUs would serve as more than graphics processors— they'd become specialized co-processors capable of taking over a significant chunk of the graphics workload.

Reviews Word on the street for the AMD A8 7600

Better Competitive Positioning First, the good news—the A8-7600 is a huge improvement over AMD's previous 45W part.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Socket Type

Single-thread performance for the new A8-7600 is 15 to 20 percent faster, while multi-threaded performance is as much as 40 to 60 percent faster.

It took 14.6 seconds to display all files for the A8-6500T, 8.02 seconds to display all files for the A8-7600 using has, and 9.13 seconds to display all files using the Core i3-4330.
by PCMag (Jan, 2014)
GPU performance is also significantly improved, by 30 to 40 percent, over the old core.

In the 2011-era game Batman: Arkham City at 1,600-by-900, Medium Details, with DX11 enabled, the A8-7600 managed a steady 31 fps compared to 19 fps and 20 fps for the AMD 6500T and Intel Core i3-4330, respectively.

AMD's old 45W desktop APU was the AMD A8-6500T—a chip with a 2.1GHz base clock and a 3.1GHz Turbo Mode, with 256 shader cores clocked at 720MHz.
by PCMag (Jan, 2014)
That's a significant improvement over the AMD 6500T's 0.7 and 1.97, respectively, but it falls far short of the dual-core Intel Core i3-4330, which turns in results of 1.55 and 3.84, respectively.

It's too early to draw conclusions about HSA from the performance in a handful of test applications, so we'll just say this—it's good to see this capability finally shipping in real products.
by PCMag (Jan, 2014)
Performance still lags far behind that of Intel chips.
by PCMag (Jan, 2014)
Finally, there are the HSA applications that AMD distributed to check overall system performance.

More generally, AMD is promising significantly improved performance for Kaveri APUs in gaming thanks to the new graphics core.
by PCMag (Jan, 2014)
In gaming, AMD turns the tables around on Intel to an impressive degree.
by PCMag (Jan, 2014)
The PCMark 7 application suite shows the A8-7600 leading the AMD 6500T by 15% (4,532 versus 3,938), but the A8-7600 APU is clobbered by the Intel Core i3-4330's score of 6,138.

Heterogeneous Systems Architecture (HSA): When AMD bought the graphics manufacturer ATI in 2006, it laid out a plan for the future in which GPUs would be built directly into the CPU die.
by PCMag (Jan, 2014)
No discrete GPUs were used—all of the systems were tested using their integrated graphics.
by PCMag (Jan, 2014)
That means the CPU and GPU share a common memory space instead of passing data strictly through shared caches.
