AMD A10-6800K Richland APU Performance Unveiled


According to previous reports, AMD would reveal their upcoming Richland APUs in early June. But like always, people manage to spill some details and performance numbers prior to the launch date and today ZOL.com.cn shares the latest benchmarks of AMD's A10-6800K APU.

AMD Richland A10-6800K Performance Unveiled

The flagship APU in AMD's RIchland series would be the A10-6800K which would feature an improved Piledriver x86 architecture along with the latest Radeon HD 8000 cores. The core clock would be maintained at 4.1 GHz while boost clock would be set as high upto 4.4 GHz. The CPU is a quad core and being an APU, those are some impressive clock speeds. The A10-6800K would feature 4 MB of L2 cache, a 100 W TDP and a price range of $142 US. The Radeon core would be labeled as HD 8670D with 384 shaders and a clock speeds of 844 MHz. It should be noted that these cores are not based on the Sea Islands architecture but rather an improved and higher clocked variant of what's already available on the Trinity lineup. You can see the complete Richland APU lineup below:

Model Core/Threads CPU clock Boost Frequency L2 Cache Graphics TDP Price
AMD A10-6800K 4/4 4.1 GHz 4.4 GHz 4 MB HD 8670D(844MHz) 100W $142
AMD A10-6700 4/4 3.7 GHz 4.3 GHz 4 MB HD 8670D(844MHz) 65W $122
AMD A8-6600K 4/4 3.9 GHz 4.2 GHz 4 MB HD 8570D(844MHz) 100W $112
AMD A8-6500 4/4 3.5 GHz 4.1 GHz 4 MB HD 8570D(800MHz) 65W $91
AMD A4-6400K 2/2 3.9 GHz 4.1 GHz 1 MB HD 8470D(844MHz) 65W $69

The GPU performance has increased exponentially over Trinity, also to note is that the CPU frequencies have been bumped up under the same 100 W envelope which shows the AMD has somehow increased the power efficiency of an existing architecture that first arrived on FX-Bulldozer processors. The benchmarks gave the following numbers, they would do for know until full reviews arrive in the first week of June:

AMD A10-6800K:

  • 3DMark 11 Performance - P1773
  • 3DMark 11 Performance OC - P2221
  • Fritz Chess Benchmark - 7512 Kilonodes/s
  • AIDA 64 Cache and Memory - 12696/10331/18001/59.3ms (Read/Write/Copy/Latency)
  • CineBench R11.5 - 3.70 Multi-Threaded
