AMD's Richland APUs - The A10-6800K and A10-6700 Reviewed

Futurelooks
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. While this is good to see, AMD needs to move to a smaller manufacturing node soon to catch up with its prime competitor. I believe the A-Series Elite is just a stepping stone to their next big evolution with the APU design.
  • 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: 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. In all honesty, it seems more like an A10-5900K instead. That would make the A10-6700 something like the A10-5950 I suppose.

AMD A10-6800K (Richland) Review

Tech2
22 June 2013
  • Summary: The new Elite A-Series A10-6800K is priced a little higher than its predecessor at Rs 10,000. The A10 is targeted at someone who’s looking for a one-stop-solution for a CPU and GPU and would not want to invest more in a discrete card. Yes, you can get a more powerful Intel CPU at this price but you’ll have to spend at least Rs 3,000 more on a graphics card if you plan on even casual gaming. In this respect, the A10-6800K will be a slightly cheaper solution.

AMD A10-6800K

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.

AMD A10-6800K and A10-6700 Richland APUs Tested

HotHardware
5 June 2013
  • Conclusion: Performance Summary: AMD’s latest Elite A-Series APUs offer modest performance improvements over their predecessors. When paired with DDR3-1866 memory, the A10-6700 performs very much like the A10-5800K. The A10-6700 puts up somewhat better numbers due to its slightly higher-clocked CPU and GPU cores (3.7GHz / 4.3GHz / 844MHz vs. 3.8GHz / 4.2GHz / 800MHz), but the differences weren’t dramatic. The A10-6800K fares a bit better.
  • Pros: Good Graphics Performance, Eyefinity Support, Low Idle Power, Native USB 3.0 and SATA III
  • Cons: Minor Update, Intel Maintains Its Performance Lead

AMD A10-6800K and A4-4000 Richland APU Review

TechSpot
5 June 2013
  • Summary: So what does Richland bring to the table? Honestly, not much. This minor refresh essentially bumps up the clock speeds of each model from the previous generation Trinity series. A little bit of overclocking isn’t necessarily a bad thing, except for the fact that in this case you're paying AMD extra for it.

AMD "Richland" A10-6800K e A10-6700

NextHardware
16 September 2013
  • Summary: Le APU "Richland" rappresentano una piccola evoluzione rispetto a quanto abbiamo già potuto osservare con "Trinity" e il nostro giudizio sulle APU per socket FM2 resta positivo. L'incremento di frequenza sia nel comparto CPU che in quello GPU, ha portato ad un generale aumento delle prestazioni, senza però sacrificare l'efficienza energetica, settore in cui AMD ha lavorato molto per migliorare le proprie APU.

AMD "Richland" - A10-6800K

5 June 2013
  • Conclusion: Vi hade hoppats på större förbättringar och prestandaökningar än de vi har sett idag. Till viss del vägs detta upp av en grym överklockningspotential, som vi hoppas kunna utforska mer i framtiden.
