[CPU-World] AMD readies R-series embedded APUs

The graph shows that AMD R-464L has 206%, and R-272F has 145% better performance than Intel i7-2710QE embedded chip in 3DMark 06 and Vantage v1.1.0 applications. Core i7-2710QE incorporates HD 3000 graphics, which is noticeably slower than HD 4000 GPU on Ivy Bridge line of processors. Nevertheless, if the benchmark results in the PDF file are correct, then AMD R-464L may still be faster in graphics applications than Core i7-3612QE, which is an Ivy Bridge successor of the i7-2710QE.

The PDF file on AMD website does not list CPU or GPU features of R-series APUs, but we were able to locate some details on the R-464L. This chip packs 4 CPU cores, clocked at 2.3 GHz, and HD 7660G graphics. These specifications, as well as 35 Watt TDP, closely match mobile A10-4600M microprocessor. As a result, we wouldn't be surprised to learn if R-464L and A10-4600M have the same remaining features, such as 4 MB L2 cache, turbo and GPU clock frequencies (whatever those are). We don't have any information on the R-272F, but we believe that it's a dual-core APU, and it comes with HD 7500G or HD 7400G series graphics.

Graphics score, what about CPU score?

I think both you and me know that Trinity APUs will still get severely beaten by everything Intel has to offer. The only thing AMD is good at, is IGP performance, which is where it crush the HD4000.
All in all, Trinity is only good for people looking for a cheap desktop, while people who game with a dedicated GPU will go much better off with a CPU from Intel.

It's not that I don't like AMD or that I don't want them to do good, but looking at Llano mobile versus Sandy Bridge mobile I think it might be safe to say that the CPU performance will lag behind Intel. If there was software enable parallel processing on Trinity, then CPU performance would surpass Intel. I do remember they did have software in the making. There was a news article a long time ago where people were developing a piece of parallel computing software for a AMD chip with L3 cache and the most reasonable solution was that the chip was a Trinity sample. The benchmarks were astounding.

who number crunches on a laptop? it's not like trinity cores are stupidly slow. they're pretty decent. not as fast as intel but still it's definitely not slow

id enjoy my 30fps in BF3 while you enjoy your high cpu scores in benchmarks but 15fps on BF3 rolleyes.gif

People easily forget that a lot of games are not just GPU bound, but also is highly dependent on the CPU as well. Which is why I said that people with dedicated graphic cards should buy Intel.

Well It would say something like this in practice. coolsmiley03.png

"Testing was performed by AMD using test scripts and a 60.2 MB .psd format source file of a 5616×3744 resolution image provided by Adobe. Time to complete a RGB 300 Blur scripted render test was 51.06 seconds with GPU OpenCL acceleration on versus 394.26 seconds with GPU OpenCL acceleration off.Time to complete scripted Liquify render test was 15.57 seconds with GPU acceleration on versus 86.62 seconds with GPU acceleration off.

people overestimate the cpu side in laptops. in high end desktops then I'd say with multi gpu configuations setups you need a FAST cpu that's why intel is our choice and without a doubt amd cpu's will be a bottleneck and no overclocking can fix that BUT with laptops you don't get GPU's as powerful as the ones in desktops.

I've said this many times before, and I will say it again: the number of people that use their laptops for document productivity, media creation and other cpu-intensive tasks far outweighs the number of people who do heavy gaming on a laptop. Besides, most gaming occurs on consoles, handheld devices and desktop gaming pcs, in that order.

I love AMD but, my gut tells me the bd/piledriver cores will be SLOWER than the Stars core. (man tears)
