AMD + Microsoft Windows 8.1 = 10% Boost - PCSTATS.com AMD + Microsoft Windows 8.1 = 10% Boost
Fri, Oct 18 2013 | 4:19PM | Filed under: CPU / Processors| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

AMD shot us this interesting little update today; "Today, AMD published a new blog on the collaboration between Microsoft and AMD for great performance and user experience in Windows 8.1. The blog contains some interesting data points surrounding the performance differences we have observed between when AMD launched the latest A-series of APU’s and now, combining the enhancements our driver team have delivered with the work Microsoft has achieved with Windows 8.1.

Please note that the AMD A10-6800K offers a heterogeneous compute advantage of up to 13% against the >60% more expensive competitor product - and a gaming performance advantage of nearly 50%. Windows 8.1 is a free update for Windows 8 users, and can be installed through the Microsoft Store, meaning any consumer with an AMD Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) based PC can increase performance by nearly 10% simply through installing the Windows 8.1 update, and AMD’s latest Catalyst driver."
