AMD A8-5600K Review
     Tue, Oct 02 2012 | 3:43P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The latest line of A-Series APUs come laden with new features all aimed at delivering a seamless graphics rich experience at little inconvenience to the end user. Coming in with an updated 'Northern Islands' based Radeon HD 7000 series integrated GPU that uses the VLIW 4 architecture, Turbo Core 3.0 for both CPU and GPU, aimed to reduce power consumption while giving the user peak performance. The biggest change is in the x86 architecture. Displacing the four K12 cores found in the Llano APUs we find four 'Piledriver' cores. 'Piledriver' is the direct successor to the 'Bulldozer' architecture and spells a new era for AMD and the direction that their future technology will take.

AMD A10-5800K Trinity APU Review @ TechwareLabs
     Tue, Oct 02 2012 | 3:42P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today AMD launches the new Trinity APU lines based on the Piledriver architecture. We have in their latest A10-588K and A8-566K APU's for testing. GPU as well as CPu enhancements await end users with this new product line. The big question on everyones mind is "Does Trinity close the gap and finally provide a compelling argument to the Ivy Bridge CPU. There's no doubt that Intel retains the performance crown but the really compelling argument is in where AMD is headed. The question you should be asking yourself is " What should I be looking for in a processor?"

Graphics is much better than what Intel offers
     Tue, Oct 02 2012 | 3:40P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Trinity has the most impressive integrated graphic unit in the world. It is very fast. It can run a variety of games at decent resolutions and quality settings. It has a robust OpenCL component that can only improve as AMD releases more driver updates and software vendors update their products to utilize that functionality. Driver support for the graphics is much better than what Intel offers, and AMD releases many more driver updates a year. Game support is also second to none in that particular field."

     Tue, Oct 02 2012 | 3:39P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Late last week, we posted a glimpse of what AMD had in store with their latest A-Series APUs for desktop systems. In that article, we were able to officially unveil the Virgo platform and discuss speeds and feeds, GPU performance, and power consumption characteristics. However, we weren’t able to disclose any CPU performance numbers, overclocking data, or pricing. We know some of you aren’t too fond of cliffhangers that leave out important data like that, but thankfully we can give you all the full scoop here today. In this piece, we’ll fill in the blanks regarding AMD’s latest desktop APUs and cover the rest of the performance characteristics many of you have been eagerly anticipating, from standard X86 performance to media encoding and overclocking

Posted by: STAFF
"AMD's new flagship Trinity APU is the A10-5800K. The A10-5800K features some notable improvements over the previous generation. The key improvement is the architectural change to the "Piledriver" core. Piledriver contains a shared fetcher, decoder, floating point unit, and L2 within a compute module. There is an upgrade to 2MB L2 cache per compute module. Instructional advancements have been made, adding AVX, AVX 1.1, FMA3, AES, and F16C. There have also been changes over "Bulldozer", adding IPC improvement, leakage reduction, CAC reduction, and frequency uplift. The newest A10-5800K has been clocked at 3.8GHz with a max turbo frequency of 4.2GHz. The new chip uses a new FM2 socket. The iGPU has also received an upgrade to the Radeon 7660D. The 7660D contains 384 stream processors. The core has been redesigned with VLIW4 thread process for better performance. The iGPU can also now support Eyefinity, up to 4 displays, new MSAA modes, and compute enhancements."
