The A10-7850K is the latest flagship of AMD's brand new range of APUs, codenamed 'Kaveri'. As the successor to last year's Richland APUs, Kaveri includes new CPU cores based on AMD's 'Steamroller' architecture, plus a Radeon R7 series GPU integrated onto the die, four x86-64 cores clocked as high as 3.7 GHz, pushing up to 4 GHz as part of the APU's Turbo mode.

Although the Steamroller cores in AMD's Kaveri-based A8-7600 APU brought a notable boost in CPU efficiency, it felt like the company was mostly focused on gaming performance with last month's update. The A8-7600 wasn't much faster than last year's...

The AMD A10-7850 APU's great graphics performance and new computer features are partially undercut by the CPU performance.

For years, AMD is pushing the idea of treating CPU and GPU equally when comes to computing power through the concept called “heterogenous computing”. After all, why would you waste all of the power and space in a PC if certain workload can be better...

AMD clearly made a long-term investment with APU as a concept. This is, in our opinion, the biggest innovation that AMD made in the recent decade. Simply put, we all love expensive video cards, processors and motherboards, but when the time comes to pull...

AMD did their best making emphasis on the integrated video core capabilities. Indeed, in the APU important than absolute performance in the test benchmarks, and a good balance between the processor and graphics. So far AMD A10-7850K is the best in all...

The Kaveri brings about a few innovations and technologies like hardware HSA support, but most of them offer no real benefits right now. Promoting the Kaveri series to the desktop market, AMD puts an emphasis on several things such as the Steamroller...

Now that we have put the A10-7850K through all of our benchmarks we finally have an idea of where it stands. AMD has done a great job of improving on the already good performance of their APUs when it comes to the integrated graphics. Even better, they...

We've been talking about the Kaveri technology in this A10-7850K for a long time now – about the promise of those new Steamroller cores, the addition of Graphics Core Next GPU cores, and the still rather intangible benefits of the heterogeneous system...

I have been a fan of both AMD and Intel for years. Each has their strengths and weaknesses.AMD has shifted focus from a pure performance standpoint to an overall system experience with the new APU line up. AMD continues to make strides in their...

AMD's Kaveri K Series APUs have a wealth of untapped performance potential: out of the box they come with a modest 720MHz GPU core clock speed, yet anyone who has toyed with AMD APUs in the past knows there's going to be a lot of overclocking headroom....

“Kaveri” is the codename for AMD's newest version of their A-Series processors. This update brings two A10 series SKUs that are both unlocked. We tested the A10-7850K, which has an updated graphics core based on the “Hawaii” GPU. What this means is we...

AMD’s latest high-end APU is a serviceable option for budget-strapped gamers, but many of its new hardware features rely on software that just isn’t ready yet—and similarly priced Intel chips hold a strong lead on CPU performance and power...

Catalyst 14.1 Beta was released, but wasn't quite ready for prime time. Catalyst 14.2 Beta is better. You can download the Beta drivers from AMD's website now and I'm going to tell you why you should. I've tested the Catalyst 14.2 Beta drivers and the...

If you take away a high-end gaming rig from your mindset and understand what AMD is bringing to the table with Kaveri, then you should be impressed. It is a rather bold move for AMD to focus more on the IGP side of things rather then CPU performance. I...

AMD's Kaveri APUs are dependent on system memory. The easiest way to explain this dependency is by thinking of the GPU on the Kaveri APU as a graphics card, but with one significant difference – on its own it has no video memory. The video memory the...

If you follow our website and the technology industry more broadly then you may have heard a lot about Kaveri since it was officially launched on January 14th 2014. Kaveri is the codename for AMD's fourth generation of desktop APU (Accelerated Processing...

Kaveri represents another significant step forward for integrated graphics performance but realistically it still isn't even on the same playing field as true discrete graphics solutions which aren't as limited by memory bandwidth or physical space....

The A10-7850K is simply not a worthy basis for a full gaming rig with a decent discrete GPU. The price difference between it and an i5 4570 isn’t that great, and even less between it and an eight-core FX-8350. For a small form factor, low-cost PC though, running in integrated graphics alone, it will give you impressive gaming performance without the need for a full GPU.

Another day, another Kaveri article! If you haven't yet, be sure to first read our full Kaveri review , then perhaps move on to see how it performs when overclocked to 4.7 GHz with 1020 MHz GPU. Also if you're curious, you may want to check out how...

AMD's A10-7850K represents the very best APU of this generation. Design decisions taken years ago mean that while the architecture of the CPU and GPU components is arguably better than last-generation Richland (A10-6800K), this new Kaveri APU is not...
