[Various] AMD Kaveri A10-7850K (7700K, 7600) reviews - Page 2

post #11 of 1004
Idle power consumption this time around has A LOT to do with the platform. For example, with the ASRock board, I got the numbers above. Last night, I received an ASUS board which had quite a bit lower results. So, it seems like BIOS / AMD software interactions still need some work....

still no word on dual-graphics?

pretty much like expected it offers pretty much nothing much over a 5/6800k

the only game changer is mantle but not many games that support it yet and older games are SOL

OC is not amazing ether

so pretty much the only perks are HSA which only works with support apps and other then that its only as good as a paper feature that isnt going to get much exercise

i cant believe AMD is stacking it up against the i5 which would easily kill the APU in every real world usage except for iGPU gaming

the older 5/6800k are stacked against the i3

Preliminary improvements looks pretty underwhelming. If there is some good news on the CPU end, it looks like HH didn't have any problems cranking the CPU up to 5.0 on air, so at least we know overclockability is about that of Richland.

Dual graphics works with R7 class parts.

This is unfortunately the usual mantra with AMD. "Here are these amazing features.....but nothing supports it yet." Even hUMA and hQ are disabled at the driver level right now since there are no compatible applications.

Basically, it's becoming quite hard to justify the purchase of an APU when so many of their most redeeming features are still in the "coming soon" stage after three years.

It is fully expected conclusion, the A8-7600/45W is a "litlle dragon APU" or great option for HTPC computer or classic low power Desktop cmputer.wink.gif

http://www.overclock.net/t/1457371/puget-systems-amd-a10-7850k-performance-review/50#post_21540277

Hardware-canucks

"When I first opened the box, I couldn’t believe my eyes. “Who in their right mind samples a low-end APU processor to highlight their new lineup?” I thought. After years of bleeding edge Intel and AMD samples being sent in an effort to showcase the best of the unaffordable best, getting an A8-7600 just seemed odd.

I quietly progressed through the benchmarks and now, after more than 20 hours of testing, I get it. This particular APU isn’t about record setting overclocking, extreme gaming or pushing the boundaries of x86 performance. It’s a stark reminder of reality. While part of me misses the race towards the top, that’s not what folks are looking for these days. AMD’s goal this time around was to showcase how ridiculously capable their more affordable APUs are.

The A8-7600 is the real standout of AMD’s new lineup. It epitomizes everything we could want from Kaveri by incorporating the graphics and multimedia performance of a 95W A10-6800K into a part with a TDP of just 65W. More importantly, it can be easily configured down to 45W without taking a massive cut in the areas that count the most to its intended market: GPU accelerated decoding, transcoding and gaming. I’m not saying forget about the K-series parts but the A8 7600 makes one hell of a convincing case for itself in HTPC systems and simple set-top boxes. Intel doesn’t have a thing that can touch it within their current Haswell product stack.

By combining graphics horsepower that’s focused in key areas and “good enough” (for its segment at least) CPU performance into an efficient, affordable package, AMD has created the perfect poster child for their design mantra and a great companion for SFF systems. It may not have the overclocking chops of its more expensive siblings but the A8 7600 is infinitely more capable of displaying the best Kaveri has to offer."
