AMD A10-5800K Trinity APU Review

TechSpot
3 October 2012
  • Conclusion: So far we've focused on the performance of AMD's new A10-5800K, but we've yet to touch on what is arguably the most important piece of the puzzle: its price. Out of the gate, AMD has priced its new chip at $130, which happens to match the Core i3-3220 . Budget system builders seeking a new platform will have a tough decision ahead, but we'll try to offer some guidance with a summary of our findings.

  • Conclusion: Of course, the A10 is unlocked for overclocking, so enthusiasts can get a bit more performance if they're willing to take the time to tweak the chip (and splurge for premium cooling hardware, the money for which might well be better put toward a beefier CPU or a video card, to start with).
  • Pros: Much improved graphics performance over previous model, Competes well against similarly priced Intel Core i3 CPUs with weaker integrated graphics, Unlocked for overclocking
  • Cons: CPU-specific performance doesn’t get as much of a boost as graphics, New FM2 socket means previous-gen AMD APU owners will need a new motherboard

AMD A10-5800K Trinity APU

HEXUS
2 October 2012
  • Conclusion: Nearly five months on from the release of the laptop-bound Trinity APU and just in time for the beginning of the holiday season, AMD outs the desktop variant of its latest CPU-and-GPU technology. The transition from 35W mobile part to 100W desktop enables AMD to increase the Trinity APU's speeds considerably, with the range-topping A10-5800K punching in at a maximum 4.2GHz CPU and 800MHz GPU.

AMD Trinity for Desktops. Part 2: Socket FM2 Platform and AMD A10-5800K Processor Review

X-bit labs
1 October 2012
  • Summary: Trinity demonstrated some very inspiring performance in graphics tests last week. However, AMD’s traditional weakness is its x86 cores. Let’s see if the company engineers managed to resolve this problem in the new Piledriver microarchitecture that found its way into promising hybrid processors.

AMD Trinity A10-5800K: l’APU per giocare

Xtremehardware
5 July 2013
  • Excerpt: Dopo aver pubblicato l’anteprima del lancio delle nuove APU prodotte da AMD, averne sviscerato le caratteristiche tecniche ed avervi mostrato i primi risultati (potete trovare l’articolo a questo indirizzo) è giunto il momento di approfondire andando ad analizzare più nel dettaglio le performance attraverso i benchmark sintetici, attraverso videogiochi e quelle che sono le possibilità di overclock di tale sistema, i consumi e soprattutto il prezzo.
  • Pros: Prestazioni IGP, Prezzo contenuto, Prestazioni bilanciate, Consumo, Margine overclock
  • Cons: Prestazioni IGP, Prezzo contenuto, Prestazioni bilanciate, Consumo, Margine overclock

AMD A10-5800K & Gigabyte F2A85X-UP4 - Trinity launch

PC Ekspert
27 October 2012
  • Conclusion: Nova A serija je kao što vidimo donijela vrlo opipljive razlike u odnosu na staru. Sirova procesorska snaga nažalost nije porasla u većoj mjeri i to je posljedica prelaska na Bulldozer arhitekturu, kojoj ni Piledriver poboljšanja nisu znatno pomogla da ulovi korak s vrlo brzom konkurencijom. Ono gdje jesu nadmoćniji su grafičke performanse i mogućnosti koje su solidno poboljšane u odnosu na staru A seriju, čime se dobilo na vrijednosti kompletne platforme.
  • Pros: Solidne grafičke performanse, poboljšan memorijski kontroler, Eyefinity (3 + 1), potrošnja električne energije, OC potencijal.
  • Cons: CPU performanse na razini ili nešto ispod prethodnika.

AMD Trinity A10-5800K: Il futuro si chiama APU

insidehardware.it
24 September 2012
  • Conclusion: La prima generazione di APU introdotta nel 2011 ha segnato un'interessante svolta per i segmenti entry level e mid range del mercato, offrendo in una sola unità, una GPU di gran lunga superiore alle proposte integrate dalla concorrenza ed una CPU dalle performance invece inferiori, perlopiù sul single threaded, che risultavano comunque soddisfacenti per le esigenze medie degli utenti a cui si rivolgevano.
  • Pros: Grafica integrata ai vertici, Migliorate le perfomance single-threaded, Buona efficienza energetica, Supporto multi-monitor (3+1), Memory Controller a 1866 MHz, Elevate potenzialità in overclock, Prezzo estremamente concorrenziale, Overclock user-friendly tramite AMD Overdrive
  • Cons: Dual Graphics limitato a pochi modelli
