AMD A10 6800K Quad Core Processor (APU) Review

Graphics Benchmark

Due to the APU’s graphic processor being on the weaker side, I tested with various resolutions and detail settings to give you a better idea on what the APU can do. Fortunately this time, the setting of Dual Graphics worked without a hitch.

Unigine Heaven 4.0

Heaven 4.0
*720 Low = no AA, no tessalation, low details.

Card 720p LOW(avg) 720p (avg)
A10 6800K 43.8 14.1
A10 6800 + HD 6670 1GB DDR5 93.1 27.6
HD 7750 1GB DDR5 89.5 30.8
HD 6670 1GB DDR5 64 18.6
A10 5800K 42.9 13.6
A8 3850K 16.4 5.4

Interesting, right? Initially I thought of just doing a Heaven 4.0 test but as you can see from the results, it looks impressive! (This could’ve been the results for the 5800K review but I had huge problems getting Dual Graphics to run that time).

With that, I went on with other benchmarks.

Metro 2033

Metro 2033
– 1080p = 1080p usual settings as above
– 1080Low = 1080p low settings
– 720p = 720p usual settings
– 720Med = 720p medium settings

Card 1080p 1080Low 720p 720Med
A10 6800K 11.00 23.00 20.50 38.50
A10 6800 + HD 6670 1GB DDR5 19.50 38.50 33.00 48.50
HD 7750 1GB DDR5 21.50 50.50 39.50 50.50

Resident Evil 6

Resident Evil 6
– 720p = 720p high settings
– 720Med = 720p medium settings

Card 720p 720Low
A10 6800K 3085 3561
A10 6800 + HD 6670 1GB DDR5 3866 4359
HD 7750 1GB DDR5 5356 6158

The HD 7750 takes a huge lead on performance. Oh and if you are wondering how the HD 6670 performs, a good guess would be in between the performance of the APU and Dual Graphics.

Just Cause 2

Just Cause 2
Just cause is not quite a demanding game so I did a 720p and 1080p test as usual.

Scene Card 1080p (avg) 720p (avg)
Dark Tower A10 6800K 13.8 25.95
A10 6800 + HD 6670 1GB DDR5 31.10 53.69
HD 7750 1GB DDR5 35.61 62.59
Desert Sunrise A10 6800K 21.14 36.98
A10 6800 + HD 6670 1GB DDR5 44.38 72.21
HD 7750 1GB DDR5 50.71 85.55
Concrete Jungle A10 6800K 11.59 20.33
A10 6800 + HD 6670 1GB DDR5 24.90 39.31
HD 7750 1GB DDR5 30.27 50.76

And that comes to the end of our graphics test.

Conclusion? The performance has improved a lot since Llano, and the Richland carries forward what the Trinity has set.


I used the encoding test to see how the temperature goes for the Richland unit, the readings show marked improvement of the Trinity (A10 5800K) unit.

Card Idle(°C) Load (°C)
A10 6800K 29 60
A10 5800K 27 69

The overclock wasn’t done at the same environment so I didn’t put the temperature on the table above BUT if you need to know (of course you do!) it’s 64°C but with the stock fan spinning a lot louder of course.

  1. I’ve read somewhere HD 7750 can be used for dual graphic with A10-5800K and 6800K.

    Can you confirm it?
