  • Summary: Only last Saturday, the curtain on Intel's newest CPU generation fell. As our showed, the performance of "Haswell" is not much higher than that of "Ivy Bridge" - the differences are mostly efimeral.
  • Cons: weak CPU performance, high power consumption under full load

  • Conclusion: Now that we have seen the performance of the Richland APUs, what do we think? Well I was a little torn. The onboard video performance was very impressive on both APUs but the compute performance of each of them left me looking for a little more.

7 July 2013
  • Summary: We are glad to say that we are truly impressed with the new AMD A-Series Elite APUs for the most part. The new A10-6800K and A10-6700 show AMD can still get more performance out of the 32 nm silicon they are currently using.
  • Pros: Flexible Overclocking, Drop In Upgrade for the Virgo FM2 Platform, Power Management Improvement for 65W chips, Significant Graphical Performance Improvement, AMD CrossfireX Support, AMD AMP! Support, AMD Turbo 3.0
  • Cons: Flexible Overclocking, Drop In Upgrade for the Virgo FM2 Platform, Power Management Improvement for 65W chips, Significant Graphical Performance Improvement, AMD CrossfireX Support, AMD AMP! Support, AMD Turbo 3.0, A10-6700 Only - Limited Memory Speeds, CPU Improvement mainly Clock speed related

AMD A10-6800K APU Richland Processor

Benchmark Reviews
6 July 2013
  • Conclusion: The AMD A10-6800K APU is a good next-step in the world of AMD Accelerated Processing Units. It represents a slight increase in performance in both the CPU and GPU portions of the unit over the last generation of Trinity processors. I'm not sure that I think it should be named the A10-6800K, though.

  • Summary: With some tinkering on the Trinity architecture , AMD has successfully squeezed out a nice performance boost while slightly improving power consumption. Richland has higher clock speeds but doesn't use any more energy, resulting in a more efficient APU.

1 July 2013
  • Conclusion: For many years there has been a battle going on between AMD and Intel to get the consumer on their side and to stay with them and with the new Richland update to Trinity, I was expecting a bit more from the new chips in order to tempt some more people towards AMD.

AMD A10-6800K (32nm Richland)

HEXUS
12 June 2013
  • Conclusion: AMD's minor under-the-hood improvements enables the A10-6800K to supercede the A10-5800K in both CPU and GPU performance, and it can therefore be recommended as a solid, competent all-round chip that's suitable for a wide range of budget systems.

PC Magazine
11 June 2013
  • Conclusion: AMD's Richland APUs boost clock speeds and refine power consumption. In particular, the AMD A10-6800K is a decent, low-cost alternative to Intel's Core i3/i5 products.
  • Pros: AMD adds support for DDR3-2133, nudges performance higher.
  • Cons: Intel still rules single-thread performance, power efficiency.
