We’ll explain that later on. The AMD A is a chip we’re desperate to like. So less shader cores but more performance, how is that possible you might wonder? Per core that means more efficiency, but also tesselation performance will have gone up a notch or two. 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.

AMD A series A10-5700 / 3.4 GHz processor Series
In games, however, the A10’s missing L3 cache causes some frame rate pain. Bad Company 2 Once more, we find the A raking in excellent integrated graphics performance, while smoking the competition. And trust us, pretty soon you’ll want heftier hardware. With performance close to the this might be the budg Depending on the SKU these will differ:. Page 7 of 9. The reduced clock speeds has hardly degraded the A’s gaming performance against the AK.
And that means a unique socket, known as FM2. Based on Piledriver architecture this processor slash graphics hybrid symbiosis called APU. The AMD A grapgics a chip we’re desperate to like. But it’s all a bit complicated for what is in the end a platform with limited upgrade options. In line with our previous test experience with the AK Ajd, the Dual Graphics technology showed its mettle when we cranked up the gaming settings to “High” as seen in the second attached graph.

Do note that the Intel HD Graphics in the form of the Intel Core i failed to execute this gaming benchmark even at the medium game quality settings. 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. To put all that into context, the FX achieves over 70 frames per second average in our World in Conflict test while the Grapgics slips under 60, probably thanks to the lack of L3 a105700 memory.
You can reach out to them here.
There is the prospect of using Hybrid Crossfire to pair the integrated GPU with a cheap graphics card.
But in any case, the top-end AK hardly benefited either.
The A turned in rather impressive performance for this test and actually fared better than the AK, rivaling discrete class GPUs. Based on Piledriver architecture this processor slash graphics hybrid symbiosis called APU gtaphics hard to beat in terms of features performance. So less shader cores but more performance, how is that possible you might wonder?
Once more, we find the A raking in excellent integrated graphics performance, while smoking the competition. Thanks to that integrated graphics core, it has different pin-out requirements to other AMD chips. 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. We’ll explain that later on.
Mind you that not all Trinity APUs will have cores. For starters, it’s one of the most technically interesting CPUs around right now.
It will be interesting to see how this affects actual gaming performance. On the latter point, the A10 falls at the first hurdle.

This will give us some insights to improvements made from enabling Dual Graphics Technology. You’ve got AMD’s latest Piledriver architecture and all its funky hybrid core technology. Have feedback on the a105-700 for the editorial team? In the end, however it’s cold, hard numbers and practicality that counts, not intellectual niceties.
Now we are not claiming that integrated solutions especially in a CPU will ever reach the level of a dedicated graphics card, but we do have to acknowledge that what AMD placed into Trinity is impressive.
Per core that means more efficiency, but also tesselation performance will have gone up a notch or two. 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.
