Well as we noticed we were not able to overclock this unit at all really. A few MHz was all we could push out of our sample, this doesn’t mean however that this model does not overclock at all because I have seen some nice results on other sites. The...

AMD's new Llano APUs are at first glance a very un-atomic products. They don't really overclock, only compete with the low end of Intel's CPU lineup and there's currently only one model of processor on the market. But that doesn't mean they aren't one of...

To wrap the performance figures up, it's no surprise that the new APU can't match the CPU-oomph of the Phenoms and higher spec Intel-models, but that's not really the point, either. The thing is, these A-series APUs are never even meant for high...

So, you’re probably thinking it’s an APU, so it will be cheap, right? Wrong! The MOP for the A8-3850 is Rs. 6,900. Add to that the cost of a A75 Asus motherboard, which is Rs. 7,350, and you have a grand total of almost 14K, which is a lot. I can...
