AMD A10-7850K (Kaveri) Black Edition – Quad Core Processor (APU) Review

Processing Power Benchmarks

We’ll begin with the processing / computing benchmark.

PC Mark 8 v2.0

Below are the details of the Creative test used – stock vs overclocked, vs a Core i5 4670K.

x264 – 10bit to 8bit Video Conversion

The source video is a 720p MKV file that is 90 seconds in duration. x264 settings at the slowest.

AMD A10-7850K 335 seconds
AMD A10-7850K OC 4.4Ghz 327 seconds
AMD A10-6800K 4.1ghz 407 seconds
AMD A10-6800K OC 4.8Ghz 396 seconds
Intel Core i5-4670K 228 seconds
AMD FX-8350 188 seconds

Impressive! The slower speed APU processed faster, I didn’t see that one coming. I did a bit of studying on this, it seems that it’s documented in one of AMD’s datasheet that they increased the IPC (Instructions per clock) for the new APU.

CPU Time Taken
AMD A10 7850K 168 seconds
AMD A10 7850K OC 4.4Ghz 135 seconds
Intel Core i5-4670K 112 seconds
AMD FX-8350 123 seconds

Cinebench R15

Default CPU test

CPU Score
AMD A10-7850K 308
AMD A10-7850K OC 4.4Ghz 315
AMD A10-6800K 311
Intel Core i5-4670K 569

IPC increments aside, the APU is still no match to Intel’s Core i5 and AMD’s own FX range of processors.

Let’s move on to the benchmarks for the APU’s graphic capability.
