That's weird. Your iGPU should be identical to the R7 Spectre in the 7850k, just with different clocks. Why would that need specific driver support?

Have you uh . . . tried running Windows 10 on the thing to see if the Catalyst 15.2 WDDM Engineering Sample drivers will properly support the chip?

Watch this space for future . . . uh . . . stuff! Yeah. That.

Probably because the current drivers don't recognize the unit, and does not know what do to with it.

Catalyst 14.12 Omega, 15.3 and 15.4 work fine (and older) will work just fine.

Don´t tamper with the GPU clock settings in bios, they might break something.
On A88X PRO the first public bios supporting these APUs is 1803. It has been working fine some you could try to downgrade to that.

Steamroller can change it´s frequency state 500 000 times per second (minus the "dead time" from Pll release). This is the reason why you don´t see any performance difference in most applications or benchmarks between the stock condition and "throttling disabled" condition. The only benchmark I´ve personally seen the difference in is Luxmark (in CPU + GPU) mode as it fully utilizes the CPU but also requires CPU processing power to feed the GPU.

The night hath brought forth counsel, and it said, 'Stop messing around with Version 3 and go once more unto Luxmark and get Version 2.0.'

So I did that...



The A10-7870K is now officially lovable.

It'd be nice to get some cpu benchmarks.
Cinebenchr15
Geekbench 3
And I can't think of others... It's early

I haven't got Geekbench but I've done a 4-result breakdown of CinebenchR15 for you, with/without an overclock and for 1600 MHz Ram and 2133 MHz Ram.

Wow, those p-states are nuts. I can see the reviews now:

"A10-7870k needs 1.4375v vcore to do 3.7 ghz!!!!"

Guh.

Those of us who know better can see that it will do 4.7ghz @ 1.45v. Details, details . . .

Watch this space for future . . . uh . . . stuff! Yeah. That.

A10-7850k here can confirm 4.3 @ 1.375.
