there's an error on GPU of A10 7870.... N.D.???? And don't have the a10 7890 APU.
a10 7870k better than 78750k at gbu a10 7870k 866 m but a10 7850k 720 m and at speed 10 7870k better too
Its funny how if you look at the individual website of each CPU, A10 7870 has a higher score, and the fact they don't have a integrated graphics benchmark for the A10 7870 A10 7850: http://cpuboss.com/cpu/AMD-A10-7850K A10 7870: http://cpuboss.com/cpu/AMD-A10-7870K
100 tl lik bir fark var
You can overclock 7850k (CPU and GPU) to the speeds of 7870k and you'll get same power consumption
Sanırım yanlışlık var, 7870k daha yeni ve güncel bir apu ayrıca youtube dan oyun testlerine bakarsanız 7850 k ile ortalama 10 fps fark var aralarında her türlü 7870k alır bence.
No matter . thiz sits is intel fanboys
So they pretty much just renamed Kaveri to Godavari, right?
The 7850K is not a 65W processor. It is a 95W processor. You can find this information directly on AMD's website. http://www.amd.com/en-us/products/processors/desktop/a-series-apu Scroll down and select the Specs Tab. Overall, the 7870K should be slightly faster in most aspects versus the 7850K. Benchmarks indicate that the performance is highly variable and as such some areas it is better, and in others it is worse. To make matters worse, some motherboard BIOS (Gigabyte being criticized more than others) have issues with maintaining performance on the 7870K like early FM2+ had with 7850K with the HT dropping and not maintaining full speed at . All of these issues combine to provide a chip that may, or may not be better than the 7850K. Check your motherboard and testing regarding the latest BIOS revision before purchasing. YMMV of course.
The 7850k uses considerably less power. That might be a factor for some.
I want know too
in single core performance , 7870k should be slightly better http://www.cpubenchmark.net/singleThread.html http://anandtech.com/bench/CPU/1028
Price :)
How is the 7850k is better than 7870k ? 0_0
