Carrizo FX-8800P, A10-8700P Info and Optimizations - Page 6

So I should avoid the A10-8700P?

Stilt, thanks! I knew that you'd have additional data points. Sandro, I would suggest looking at the 8800P especially since you get 2 extra GPU logic cores (512 vs 384) and slightly higher CPU clocks. If you weren't wanting all the CPU horsepower or wanted smaller form factor then the 8700 might make sense. The Stilt and others may have different opinions...

A10-8700P has 200MHz lower CPU clocks through all the PStates.
Despite that all of the PStates have pretty closely matched TDC value and similar voltage levels. Because of that the average clock should be almost exactly 200MHz lower than on FX-8800P with the same power limit. The difference in number of GPU CUs (in 8700P) won´t allow significantly more budget for the CPU in A10-8700P, however the CPU clock difference in combined workloads could shrink down to 150MHz or so.

I really don't care about the GPU for gaming, I'm browsing this APU to save money and use it for more RAM and full HD screen. I care about hevc decoding and open cl support for Adobe products. And the A10-8700p seemed like the perfect comprise. It really comes down to what Intel can do. I suppose Skylake laptops will be even more expensive.

Yes, your use case leans more towards GPU logic cores as OpenCL uses the GPU to assist in computations. The extra cores of the FX-8800P may be useful for you. I'm a photographer on the side and I use DXO Optics Pro for my editing. The software really likes AMD GPUs. My use case requires the fastest GPU available in a slim form factor though I'm willing to go to a 15.6 if needed to get the TDP envelope I need for my production work. I very rarely play games... If you really must save money then the A10-8700 should serve you well.

Thanks.
The only thing that bothers me is that I can get a Broadwell CPU that performs better than Carrizo for the same price. On the other hand it doesn't have a good GPU and no HEVC support. I guess I'll be waiting for Skylake laptops to see how expensive they will be.

so why exactly are you so afraid you need broadwell's single thread performance?
You want to watch HEVC, carizzo works https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rp1nzQVAZKE. thumb.gif

I read it has hybrid support with the latest drivers... I'm just not sure if it can support 4K and at what bitrate.

I tested 4k youtube in Edge browser on a Toshiba Radius 14 with the FX-8800P, it played very smoothly and the UI was responsive during playback...

I'm still waiting for Asus, Dell, Acer and Lenovo. What are they waiting for?
