Conclusion: Well as we noticed we were not able to overclock this unit at all really. A few MHz was all we could push out of our sample, this doesn’t mean however that this model does not overclock at all because I have seen some nice results on other sites.
Conclusion: I know that comparing with 550BE Dual core is a no contest against the newer Quad core based A8-3850, but this should give a decent idea on where she stands. Not a lot of people upgrade processors on a regular basis, atleast the generic users. That’s exactly the reason this processor is made for.
Conclusion: Both the A8-3850 and Intel's Core i3-2105 are built on a 32nm process and both feature extensive power and clock gating. By virtue of having lower power cores the A8 manages to beat the Core i3 in idle power consumption.
The Llano Desktop Preview: AMD A8-3850 CPU & GPU Performance
15 September 2011
Conclusion: There are still a number of unanswered questions about Llano on the desktop. In the coming weeks we'll be looking at HTPC performance, power consumption, and hopefully we'll be able to figure out what the deal is with overclocking AMD's new mainstream APUs.
Conclusion: The AMD 6550D in the A8-3850 is much better than the Intel HD 3000 Graphics in video post processing quality. However, this leads to increased expectations like support for full post processing on Blu-ray videos.
Conclusion: IMPORTANT : Although the rating and final score mentioned in this conclusion are made to be as objective as possible, please be advised that every author perceives these factors differently at various points in time.
