Reviews Word on the street for the AMD A10 6800K

Intel's cores are far superior to AMD's when it comes to single-threaded code—the Intel Core i5-3470 was 30% faster than the A10-6800K in single-threaded performance, despite being clocked 20% slower.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Socket Type

The 32nm processors are available in 65W and 100W configurations and have a die size of 246mm2 with 1.3 billion transistors.

The last key ingredient is the 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 2133MHz 1.5V memory kit and that runs as low as $68.99 shipped.

We were shocked to see that at 1920x1080 the AMD A10-6800K was able to average 26FPS and the game play was pretty good.

The AMD FM2 platform is also reasonably priced as you can pick up a quality brand name AMD A85X chipset powered ATX motherboard like the Gigabyte GA-F2A85X-D3H for $76.49 shipped.

The A10-6800K is a 4.1GHz part with a 4.4GHz Turbo Mode and a GPU clocked at 844MHz.

Benchmark Results: The 'Richland' A10-6800K saw a performance gain of 7.6% across all of the cores over the AMD A10-5800K APU.

Benchmark Results: Hitman: Absolution is tough on discrete graphics cards, so we knew it would be tough on processor graphics.

The AMD Trinity and Richland APUs have better graphics performance, but just half the physics performance.

Each benchmark produces a score you can use to compare systems as well as detailed results from the individual workloads.

Here you have a processor that can run games faster than Intel and it costs far less.

In contrast to the earlier games Croft is portrayed as vulnerable, acting out of necessity, desperation and sheer survival rather than for a greater cause or personal gain.

Overall, that's a small win for AMD as far as Richland's total power efficiency is concerned.
by PCMag (Jun, 2013)
Typically, AMD and Intel are able to extract an additional speed grade or two at a given TDP as a process node matures and chip designs are tweaked for optimal results.
by PCMag (Jun, 2013)
Not too shabby and AMD has improved the power efficiency with Richland!
