We first laid hands on AMD's Fusion series last February when we reviewed the 18W dual-core Zacate APU, formally known as the E-350. Designed for netbook-like applications, the Zacate APUs brushed aside existing Intel solutions with ease, providing an...

Late May we published a huge round-up of 45 desktop processors , followed by a review of Intel's fourth generation Core processors . Our readers immediately, and understandably, came with the request for a similar group test of laptop processors. It's...

On June 4 Intel is launching its next generation Core processors, also called Haswell. That means it's the perfect opportunity for us to retest all current processors and a number of older ones with a completely new test configuration. It will not only...

Faster memory = faster integrated graphics performance? When we test RAM modules we tend to say that the speed of the RAM has no significant impact on the performance of Intel systems. Intel's smart cache and memory controller make it so the CPU almost...

It might be AMD's best APU, with an integrated Radeon HD 7660D GPU that utterly trounces even the Intel HD Graphics 4000 found in the company's top Ivy Bridge CPUs, but the AMD A10 5800K has one major flaw: it's a gaming chip that's no good for...

Conventional CPUs shouldn’t be confused with APUs. The recently invented concept of hybrid processors has already gained broad recognition on the market, so we can approach APUs not as a variety of conventional CPUs but as a whole new class of...

We've already reviewed the top processor of AMD's Vishera family, FX-8350. That was just the beginning of the big refresh for the Socket AM3+ platform. AMD has also rolled out a number of more affordable CPUs. Today we're going to cover them in...

AMD's Trinity – the A10-5800K is on our spotlight today. Is it any better than the A8-3850? This review was made possible by AMD A close up of the processor. The processor was paired with the Gigabyte GA-F2A85X-D3H socket FM2 motherboard. The...

Now that Piledriver-based CPUs and APUs are widely available (and the FX-8350 is selling for less than $200), it's a great time to compare value-oriented chips in our favorite titles. We're also breaking out a test that conveys the latency between...

At the end of the day we found that memory performance scales with clock frequency on AMD's A-Series APU. We found that the memory bandwidth ranged from 12GB/s to 15GB/s on the AMD A10-5800K ‘Trinity' APU with when the most popular speeds of DDR3 dual...

Benchmarking 86 CPUs takes a while. After long last, though, we have 51 models from AMD and 35 from Intel tested in our current suite. If you want to know how your processor sizes up to its competition, you'll find plenty of comparison data inside! 86...

The AMD A10-5800K is designated as an "Accelerated Processing Unit," which basically denotes a CPU coupled with integrated graphics. This particular SKU is the A-series flagship for 2012. CPU performance is on par with the FX 4170, but of course the...

The AMD A10 5800K is by all means a very affordable, by AMD labelled as a quad core CPU. With more than plenty power under the hood for modern applications. Especially when comparing it against the almost similar priced Intel rival, the i3-3225, the...

Recently we saw the release of the new FM2 socket and the trinity platform grace us and we took a look at A8-5600k APU which can be found here which we were impressed with due to its innovation and what it had to offer. With us being enthusiasts however,...

Like you would imagine, in some cases, the move from cores to modules results in performance decrease, though the gap is rather small due to the increased clock rate and other improvements. In some cases, these last two factors improve performance...

The AMD A10-5800K ‘Trinity’ APU has undoubtedly one of the most powerful integrated graphics chip onboard. Playing any game out on the market is a piece of cake at 720p, with many DX9 based games easily playable at 1080p. And let’s face it, with the...

For a majority of these open-source benchmarks on Ubuntu 12.10 with the Linux 3.5 kernel, the AMD A10-5800K was competitive with the Intel Core i5 2400S "Sandy Bridge" processor. In some tests the A10-5800K was slightly faster and in other cases a...

Take a CPU. Cram in a graphics core. What d'ya got? If you're AMD, it's a Fusion processor. That sounds futuristic and is indeed the expected shape of things to come for the PC. More than that, the future is expected to eventually hold nothing but PCs...

Before we dive further into the challenges facing AMD’s Fusion strategy, let’s take a closer look at what the A10-5800K was able to achieve, and where it fell flat. In terms of raw central processing tasks Trinity is a mixed bag. Its Piledriver CPU...

Perhaps the key point to take away from our findings is that, while the unequivocal recommendation of the A10-5800K isn't going to find its way into this review, AMD has done exactly what it needed to do following the success of Llano. Trinity is much...
