I think we’ve given motherboard vendors enough time to get an updated UEFI out there to unlock the A Series chips for the AM4 Platform. Unfortunately they seem to have not been bothered too much.  It’s an unfortunate thing for sure, but when you see in synthetics how closely the A12 9800’s R7 iGPU performs to the Radeon R7 250 1GB GDDR5 Model it makes you want to hold out hope that we’ll see these chips get a little more love down the road.  In the video included we take a look at performance of the A12 9800’s R7 iGPU  and the R7 250 in 3DMark Sky Diver and a handful of games at 720p.

Just as a note the R7 250 being used is the Visiontek R7 250 1GB GDDR5 model and the R7 iGPU had 2GB of system ram allocated to it in the UEFI.
