AMD A8-3870K

PC Magazine
17 June 2012
  • Conclusion: AMD's top-of-the-line Fusion refresh APU, the A8-3870K, offers lots of overclocking opportunities, but remains an imperfect standalone solution.
  • Pros: Unlocked multiplier allows independent overclocking of CPU and GPU components. Improved performance over predecessor. Supports DirectX 11 video.
  • Cons: Still not a replacement for discrete video cards.

AMD A8-3870K Review

6 February 2012
  • Conclusion: The addition of an unlocked multiplier is always a fantastic tool to have at your disposal if you're keen on this overclocking malarkey. We're still a little bitter about the fact that overclocking Intel's budget CPUs is so limited too - imagine a Pentium G850 with an unlocked multiplier?

  • Excerpt: With AMDs’ Llano and Bulldozer line releasing within 8 months of each other it was only a matter of time before we saw them merge. The main complaint about Llano was the inability to overclock anything. Well now we see 2 unlocked versions come into the market: the A8-3870k and the A6-3670k.

AMD A8-3870K Unlocked Llano 3.0 GHz Quad Core APU Review

Hi Tech Legion
29 January 2012
  • Summary: When looking at the Lynx platform as a whole, the market is perfect for a mainstream user, and not anyone else. This is where I am a bit puzzled about the release of an "unlocked" Llano processor.
  • Pros: Radeon 6550D Integrated Graphics, Unlocked Multiplier, Dual GFX Compatible, 100W TDP, Virtualization Technology Support, 32 nm, Mainstream Price, Good GPU Overclock
  • Cons: Minor performance increase, CPU Overclock Mediocre for Unlocked Processor

AMD A8 3870K review

The Guru of 3D
17 January 2012
  • Summary: Any Llano Lynx based platform (A4, A6 and series A8 APUs) offers value for money really. The strong point of Llano obviously is the embedded GPU and, combined with their A75 chipset, features like native SATA-600 and USB 3.0 support.

AMD "Llano" A8-3870K

13 January 2012
  • Conclusion: The 3870K is certainly a nice addition to the Llano lineup. Unlocking the GPU multiplier allows, at least in some graphics applications, a healthy boost in performance but the gains heavily depend on the specific application.
