Expert Review

28 September 2012
  • 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.

AMD A8-3850 Llano APU Review

Hardware BBQ
21 September 2011
  • 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.

The AMD A8-3850 Review: Llano on the Desktop

17 September 2011
  • 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.

AMD A8-3850 : An HTPC Perspective

14 September 2011
  • 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.

AMD A8-3850

PC Magazine
7 September 2011
  • Conclusion: With its first mainstream desktop APU, the A8-3850, AMD makes a compelling case for its method of fusing processor and graphics functionality. But don't dump your video card yet.
  • Pros: Good overall price/performance profile. Supports DirectX 11.
  • Cons: Integrated video still not a replacement for discrete cards. Requires new motherboard to take advantage of all features.

  • Conclusion: To wrap the performance figures up, it's no surprise that the new APU can't match the CPU-oomph of the Phenoms and higher spec Intel-models, but that's not really the point, either.
  • Pros: Low cost of the platform, Connectivity (graphics, USB3, S-ATA3), Reasonable power consumption, GPU-performance
