AMD A10-5800K 3.8GHz Socket FM2
Decent quad core CPU performance.
Great gaming performance for integrated GPU.
FM2 platform supports next upgrade of CPUs.
Can easily Crossfire with lowend AMD GPU.
Excellent integrated graphics performance.
Adequate CPU horsepower for the price.
Much improved graphics performance over previous model.
Competes well against similarly priced Intel Core i3 CPUs with weaker integrated graphics.
Unlocked for overclocking.
Excellent and affordable entry 3D rendering power.
Decent expected iGPU clocking with all three of my chips managing a 25% or greater frequency increase.
Low platform price.
Piledriver CPU core design.
Support for up to two VGAs in CrossfireX.
Discrete level 7660D graphics.
CPU performance on par with Ivy Bridge i33220.
Thermal rating still high compared to Intel Ivy Bridge Core i3.
Modern DX11 based games not easily playable at 1080p.
AMD is leaving the performance race all to Intel.
New motherboard needed.
Unlocked multiplier doesn't translate into good overclocking.
CPU-specific performance doesn’t get as much of a boost as graphics.
New FM2 socket means previous-gen AMD APU owners will need a new motherboard.
Same maximum TDP as FM1 products.
Perhaps a bit late to the market with laptop grade parts already for sale.
No compatibility with previous FM1 products, be it boards or chips.
"Low" but adequate CPU Performance will not appeal to some.
No backwards compatibility with FM1.
Late market entry.
No Native Virtu MVP support.
You can run two Discrete GPUs, but can't pair those two with the APU graphics.

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...-

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...-
