AMD A8-3850 vs AMD Phenom II X6 1090T

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey,
I'm interested by AMD's new line of processors with a built in GPU but I'm wondering how it's performance would compare to a AMD Phenom II X6 1090T. It's odd but why does the 4 core AMD A8-3850 have a higher benchmark when compared to the AMD Phenom II X6 1090T and the AMD Phenom II X6 1055T.

-Someone please explain which one is generally better for gaming and why, thanks.

Here's a link to the AMD A8-3850's benchmark:

The reason is that the A8-3850 has a newer architecture, it is 32nm and the phenom II is an 45nm

This and the fact that AMD completely redesigned the way a CPU and GPU interact.

For gaming the new architecture will do very well!

If you want to get into folding, I can't say much on that at this point, I would tend to think that the 1100T would do better though.

You should never trust PassMark, haha. The A8-3850 is, CPU-wise, about the same as an Athlon II X4.

Most applications don't utlitze all 6 cores for the Phenom x6. That is why you see both are on fairly equal performance. Like others have said before, it depends what you are doing. Games are becoming more reliant on the GPU and forgoing the CPU. So either choice is fine, if you want dual graphics then the A8 would probably be better.

Pretty sure it isn't newer architecture, in fact it should be slower than Phenom II clock for clock.


Afaik it's still a stars core, slightly refined with less cache than Phenom II.

This.

I completely stopped caring about these when I found out how weak their actual processing power was.

So much misinformation. The architecture is pretty much the same as Phenom II, expect 32nm and slower clock for clock. 1055T or 1090T will win in everything as long as there is a discrete GPU.

Also the Thuban can OC much higher.

You're looking at the wrong benchmarks. A 1090T beats a 3850 in basically everything:
