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.

Long story made short, APUs are x86 processors and GPU packed together to enable a better experience in computing, not just for desktops but also for notebook solutions. It all started from Trinity APUs, which were meant to succeed Llano class...

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...

I don't know how to put it. Personally, I feel that the APUs from AMD are solid products. However I also feel difficult to recommend it, not that the product is bad but it's just really limited. For example – if you have a HD 6670 1GB DDR5 and looking...

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...

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 and...

While there isn't a substantial increase in GPU performance between Richland and Trinity, AMD's GPU performance lead over Ivy Bridge was big enough to withstand Haswell's arrival. Note that although we're comparing performance to Haswell here, Richland...

On the other hand, is now at its performance limit with the A10-6800K, and is set to be replaced sooner rather than later by the FM2+ socket when the Kaveri APUs arrive, so regular upgraders are also better off on the Intel path for now.

Estos nuevos APU pasan a ser una opción más que interesante para quienes cambian de plataforma este año. Costo bajo, rendimiento balanceado y gráficos más que destacables, junto con un consumo acorde a los tiempos de ahora, son algunas de las características que AMD puede ofrecer en sus modelos, donde el A10-6800K se lleva un poco de cada una de ellas.

Combined with a good SSD, the AMD A10-6800K is ideal for a budget PC build. It provides excellent on-chip graphics processing, good performance and decent overclocking potential at a great price. It doesn’t provide a massive increase in performance over the A10-5800K, but it’s enough for the A10-6800K to earn a Best Buy award.

Value and features is what the this little APU infrastructure offers and as such a A10 6800K with an A75 or A85X based motherboard for normal daily usage is excellent. Obviously it's also great for HTPCs and even a game or two albeit in lower resolutions.

In conclusion, I can't fully get behind a recommendation at this point for the $142 A10-6800K Richland APU. It just doesn't provide the level of performance increase that would justify buying it over last generation's processors. I think there is a good chance that the price of the Richland APUs will drop relatively quickly.
