AMD A10-6700 GPU Performance Exposed – 80% Faster Than Core i5-3570K, 20% Than A10-5800K in 3DMark 11 “Fire Strike”


AMD A10-6700

The first performance results of AMD's upcoming Richland A10-6700 GPU have been exposed by (Via Coolaler). It should be noted that AMD plans to launch their Richland APU lineup including the flagship A10-6800K within this quarter.

AMD A10-6700 GPU Performance Results Exposed - Mighty Fast Than Intel's HD 4000 iGP

The AMD A10-6700 is part of their Richland APU lineup which is based on the 32nm Piledriver core architecture and a highly improved VLIW4 based HD 8000 series iGP which as per today's results is quiet an improvement over Trinity APU's iGPU. The AMD A10-6700 APU is a Quad core with four threads and is clocked at 3.7 GHz (base) and 4.3 GHz Boost frequency. The AMD A10-6700 APU is equipped with an HD 8670D iGP that operates at 844 MHz, come with 4 MB L3 Cache and features a TDP of 65W. The complete Richland APU lineup is listed below:

Model Cores /
CPU clock Boost Frequency L2 cache          Graphics TDP
AMD A10-6800K 4/4 4.1 GHz 4.4 GHz 4 MB HD 8670D(844MHz) 100W
AMD A10-6700 4/4 3.7 GHz 4.3 GHz 4 MB HD 8670D(844MHz) 65W
AMD A10-6600K 4/4 3.9 GHz 4.2 GHz 4 MB HD 8570D(844MHz) 100W
AMD A8-6500 4/4 3.5 GHz 4.1 GHz 4 MB HD 8570D(800MHz) 65W
AMD A6-6400K 2/2 3.9 GHz 4.1 GHz 1 MB HD 8470D(844MHz) 65W
AMD A4-6300 2/2 3.7 GHz 3.9 GHz 1 MB HD 8370D(760MHz) 65W

The GPU performance of AMD's new Richland APU was tested in 3DMark 11 Firestrike, Cloud Gate and Ice Storm benchmarks against the Intel Core i5-3570K which uses a HD 4000 series iGP and AMD A10-5800K that uses the HD 7660D iGP. In real-time, the A10-6700 has a base frequency of 800 MHz for the GPU while the extra 44 MHz is added with Boost frequency when higher GPU load applications are running. This is a 5% improvement in the GPU clock speed.

In IceStorm benchmark, the AMD A10-6700 scored 67,462 points while the GPU score was 86,027 points. The A10-5800K scored 56098 points (65657 for the GPU) in the same test. The A10-6700 was 20% in overall and 31% better in terms on GPU performance compared to the flagship Trinity A10-5800K APU. The most notable gain was seen in the FireStrike DirectX 11 benchmark where the A10-6700 came out as much as 80% faster than the Core i5-3570K HD 4000 iGP and 23% faster than A10-5800K. The score breakdown is provided below:

3DMark 11 Fire Strike (DirectX 11):

  • AMD A10-6700 - 1131 Points / GPU score 1212
  • AMD A10-5800 - 919 Points / GPU score 987
