Depending on the SKU these will differ:. In line with our previous test experience with the AK APU, the Dual Graphics technology showed its mettle when we cranked up the gaming settings to “High” as seen in the second attached graph.

PassMark – AMD A APU – Price performance comparison
This means, it still delivers firepower that can almost match a GeForce GT discrete graphics card and is notably speedier than any other processor’s integrated graphics performance. Page 7 of 9. Once more, we find the A raking in excellent integrated graphics performance, while smoking the competition. Per core that means more efficiency, but also tesselation performance will have gone up a notch or two.
In multi-threaded benchmarks like video encoding and pro rendering, the A is pretty close to the AMD FXas you might expect – they both have four AMD Piledriver spec cores and clockspeeds that aren’t a million miles apart.
With performance close to the this might be the budg And trust us, pretty soon you’ll want heftier hardware. Let’s realize one thing here, integrated GPUs whether that is in the chipset or CPU have always have been bad in terms of performance.
Based on Piledriver architecture this processor slash graphics hybrid symbiosis called APU. This will give us some insights to improvements made from enabling Dual Graphics Technology. On the latter point, the A10 falls at the first hurdle. The reduced clock speeds has hardly ad the A’s gaming performance against the AK.
AMD A10-5700 APU
It will be interesting to see how this affects actual gaming performance. We’ll explain that later on.
Thanks to that integrated graphics core, it has different pin-out requirements to other AMD chips. Have feedback on the article for the editorial team?
There is the prospect of using Hybrid Crossfire to pair the integrated GPU with a cheap graphics card. So less shader cores but more performance, how is that possible you might wonder?
For starters, it’s one of the most technically interesting CPUs around right now. Graaphics we are not claiming that integrated solutions especially in a CPU yraphics ever reach the level of a dedicated graphics card, but we do have to acknowledge that what AMD placed into Trinity is impressive.
Based on Piledriver architecture this processor slash graphics hybrid symbiosis called APU remains hard to beat in terms of features performance. For this part of our benchmarking, we also turned off the AMD Dual Graphics technology, leaving our discrete GPU in the form of the Sapphire Radeon HD graphics card to churn out graphics performance on the same test bed.
But in any case, the top-end AK hardly benefited either. You’ve got AMD’s latest Graphucs architecture and all its funky hybrid core technology. Futuremark 3DMark Vantage 3DMark scores are looking pretty rosy for grpahics the integrated graphics performance on the A as it’s just 4.
And that means a unique socket, a1-5700 as FM2. The AMD A is a chip we’re desperate to like. The A turned in rather impressive performance for this test and actually fared better than the AK, rivaling discrete class GPUs.
But it’s all a bit complicated for what is in the end a platform with limited upgrade options. In games, however, the A10’s missing L3 cache causes some frame rate pain. In the end, however it’s cold, hard numbers and practicality that counts, not intellectual niceties.
To put all that into context, the FX achieves over 70 frames per second average in our World in Conflict test while the A slips under 60, probably thanks to the lack of L3 cache memory. Though we always felt that on the processor side AMD might have forfeited a little bit too much, they compensate with a very powerful graphics engine harbored inside that CPU.
