Citavia put next-generation A10-5800K, and A8-4500M "Trinity" desktop and notebook APUs, and pitted them against several currently-launched processors, from both AMD and Intel.

Sadly the guy from the original source has his calculated % in a strange way (not one of correct right ways, or maybe those numbers are for something else?)Integer It is actually clock for clock 17% better than bulldozer (5800K vs 8150), and that is without L3 cache.
FP is 13% better.
Worked out by (numbers for 8150 vs 5800K, clock for clock):
INT: 1978.6/100 = 19.786
2327.4/19.786 = 117.6
117.6 - 100 = 17.6%
FP: 619.5/100 = 6.195
701.2/6.19 = 113.18
113.2 - 100 = 13.2 %
Which is actually really impressive, wow, if this performance comes true ill probably be looking to upgrade.Edited by Alchemist07 - 4/10/12 at 8:41am
