[Anandtech] The Llano Desktop Preview: AMD A8-3850 CPU & GPU Performance

post #1 of 13

There are still a number of unanswered questions about Llano on the desktop. In the coming weeks we'll be looking at HTPC performance, power consumption and hopefully we'll be able to figure out what the deal is with overclocking AMD's new mainstream APUs.

The question of processor graphics performance is open and closed. Llano offers what I'd expect to be the bare minimum from any processor offering a real performance oriented GPU. All of our bench suite is playable on Llano and its actually possible to drive up image quality settings without sacrificing playability. If you're looking to build an entry level gaming PC, Llano is most likely going to be on your hit list this year.

Correct. Why is that a bad thing?

No enthusiast is going to buy this APU for their main rig. It is for HTPC, light gaming, etc.... or, in other words, the mainstream. An Athlon II is more than enough for internet surfing, Excel, and the like... and if you do want to do something more GPU intensive you can without having to buy a dedicated card.

Actually more like a 6450. The 5570 si still several FPS faster based on Anand's review. If you OC though based on the leak it CAN reach 5570 speeds

Why did they test it against GTX 460Ms and a 8 thread CPU? They should of tested against Sandy Bridge chips that had the HD 2000 GPUs as anyone who buys a K series chip with the HD 3000 is going to have a discreet GPU anyway.

I can't believe people still read his site. At least Tom's doesn't have a reputation to hide their bias.
