The CPU performance is good enough, but GPU performance is excellent. Although power consumption was up there it's not exactly a deal breaker -- and certainly not as ridiculous as the A4-4000 in terms of watts vs. performance. The main downside is that it costs more than the A10-5800K it replaces.80

Looking over at the latest 6000 series APUs, it is easy to be underwhelmed due by the fact they are 'just a refresh'. The primary benefit to the A10-6800K is the high out the box speeds, combined with a modest GPU overclock and some capable high...-

We last talked about AMD's A10-6800K when we were testing completely stock settings and even then we were massively impressed. When compared to its main competition, the Intel i3-3220, it matched the CPU performance in most cases whilst completely...83

For its Richland desktop APUs, AMD decided to settle with little more than a minor clock rate increase, making for mildly higher performance. It's much ado about nothing as we wait for Kaveri, which will bring with it some actual changes to the CPU...60
