Summary: The AMD Lynx Platform comes at a decent price and offers DX11 compatible integrated graphics, which is more than enough for performing some of the daily tasks or watching HD multimedia content. For increasing the 3D performance even further, we can either overclock the APU or buy a separate graphics card from the supported models (RADEON HD 6400, 6500 or 6600 Series).
Summary: In the lineup of the new Llano APU's, the A6-3650 is supposed to be the more economical choice. What you get is the lesser Radeon GPU and the middle of the road CPU speeds, when compared to the A8-3850 and A8-3800. This means that the price is much more attractive, especially for an all in one type solution. Typically, someone that is looking to use an integrated GPU isn't looking for a ton of graphical power.
Excerpt: The ‘Llano’ APU platforms by AMD have the ability to dynamically use Radeon cores for either computing or graphics dependent upon the tasks being run. This means efficient switching between GPU and CPU usage, which in turn means better performance. Additionally, ‘Llano’ supports DirectX11 with DirectCompute, HD-3D, AMD-Vision engine, UVD3, and OpenCL Acceleration. AMD’s flagship motherboard chipset, the A75, will offer native Superspeed USB 3.0 and SATA 3.0.
Excerpt: A few weeks back, AMD officially launched their Llano-based A-Series Accelerated Processing Units, or APUs, in both desktop and mobile flavors. At the time, we covered the high-end variants of both A-Series offerings; our coverage of the desktop version A8-3850 APU and its companion chipsets is posted here and the mobile A8-3500M is detailed here .
Conclusion: AMD's second-rung APU is the A6-3650, which currently retails for £89. Based on the range-topping A8-3850, which itself is barely over £100, the number-two part sacrifices around 10 per cent CPU speed and, on paper, about 25 per cent GPU power in order to meet a more attractive price point. Our benchmarks show that, unsurprisingly, the A6-3650 isn't as quick as the A8 part.

Excerpt: AMD's flagship model of its new A-Series range of desktop Llano Accelerated Processing Units (APUs) – the AMD A8-3850 – launched last month. At the same time, AMD announced a cheaper, less powerful APU, the A6-3650 – which we have now jammed into our test bench.
