Legit Bottom Line: The AMD A10-5800K APU looks impressive in the game benchmarks and easily beat the Intel Core i7-3770K, which is a much more expensive processor!

Benchmark Results:We weren't expecting a huge power difference between the AMD A10-5800K 'Trinity' APU and the AMD A8-3850 'Llano' APU, but we were pleasantly surprised when we saw a very nice decrease in power.
