Nope. Just 8gb ddr3. Skip that review for gpu tests people.
With official support for 2133 vs 5800k's 1866, stock scores should go up slightly. Also the 5ghz OC would be nice (trinity can't go that high) that the Chinese review got to.
Not worth the upgrade from trinity to Richland but for people getting the most of fm2 now, Richland improves power use, clock speeds, and ram support, so should compete with its i3 counterparts better.

Bummer. Waiting for the first review that will actually post gaming benchmarks with various RAM configurations so we can see scaling.

Just look at performance benchmarks of Trinity and probably add maybe 2-4% in performance and you'll probably see the new scaling.

So it's a refresh, 6 months later, very little gains, and costs $30 bucks more?

AMD Radeon™ HD 8000 Series GPU Cores

Featuring VLIW 4 architecture

Where's my GCN , AMD? The fact this can pair with a $50 HD6670 is nice, but if you're able to pair with a HD7750 , then we might see more adoption.

I think you'd get more gains running 2133Mhz memory and OCing ever so slightly but I guess not.

you get a higher CPU clock and faster memory speed support. Couple that with a faster iGPU and you can see the value is definitely there. Overclocking? Yea, we got that too. Drop the memory speed a little and a 5.0 GHz CPU speed is pretty easy to obtain – who’s not liking that? As you go along your overclocking journey, you’ll be able to reliably monitor the temperatures, which is one of my favorite improvements over the Trinity APU.

This chip also increases the memory speed from previous models. The new APUs can now run officially at DDR3-2133 MHz speeds, which should give a nice little boost to most graphics workloads. The only downside to this speed is that AMD only officially supports 2133 speeds with one DIMM per channel. So those RG2133 4 x 4 GB packs that AMD is selling seem sort of useless when they may not entirely be stable with 4 DIMMS occupying 2 channels at 2133 speeds.

The AMD A10-6800K Richland APU is the first AMD APU to ever officially support DDR3 2133MHz dual-channel memory. AMD says that you get a 9-12% performance boost in popular game titles when you run 2133MHz versus 1600MHz, so be sure to buy the fastest memory kit possible. For the AMD A10-6800K we recommend 2133-2400MHz. Our AMD A10-6700 Richland APU won't run 2133MHz with full stability, which is odd, so 2133MHz is going to be hit or miss on the A10-6700. It doesn't officially support it, but not every processor is going to be able to run it out of the box.

^ The above (only one DIMM per channel with 2133MHz memory) is a SERIOUS problem.

from the few reviews i've read the a10-6800k overclocks a lot better then the a10-5800k; and uses a lot less power when overclocked.

Not sure if you'd count that an improvement or not, but it looks like one from here.

Not the best increases but I think AMD at least did better with Richland over Trinity than Intel did with Haswell over Ivy or even Sandy. Especially when you factor in costs. So yea, nothing major, but nothing too disappointing.

Can't wait for Kaveri/ SR.

For the record, I'd like to say that if something is 5% faster or uses 10% less power than another thing it isn't "literally the same". It might be close enough not to matter (opinion), but the word "literal" is taking all sorts of abuse in this thread.

I think most people are quite disappointed in the lackluster increase for Haswell on the desktop side, but the bump in IGP performance and cut in power is quite astonishing.


How many watts does AMD-6800k pull at stock (full load) vs OC (full load)?
