The A8-7600 is part 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.

AMD really is focused on gaming performance with Kaveri and believes this is where its latest APUs have a serious advantage over the competition. The company's latest processors are being pushed as budget solutions for modern 1080p gaming, though on paper the Radeon R7 doesn't look quite up to the task...

The Kaveri A8-7600 with Radeon R7 on-die graphics is supposed to offer an attractive all-in-one solution for mainstream users. At $119 it is relatively affordable and it makes a lot of sense for casual gamers or home users. Sadly though, the A8-7600 is...

This midrange CPU/GPU delivers very good integrated graphics performance, and improved CPU performance, at a more reasonable price and power level than its A10-7850K "Kaveri" counterpart. It’s a good choice for budget gaming PCs, though comparable...

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 is another incremental improvement to AMD's mainstream desktop lineup. Efficiency is the watchword, both in terms of CPU clock cycles and power consumption. The A8-7600, despite having a modest clock speed of 3.1 or 3.3 GHz (depend on the TDP...

Subjective impressions and conclusions As I said on the previous page, Battlefield 4's Mantle renderer is kind of a double-edged sword. That's true on Kaveri much as it is on the high-end, R9 290X-powerd system that Scott tested. The renderer's effect,...

As the benchmarks have shown, AMD are still way off when it comes to CPU specific tasks. However, Kaveri was never really meant to compete with Intel's i5 or i7 processors and was aimed more at the casual gamer. In terms of gaming performance, Kaveri...

The new AMD A8-7600 offers best-in-class GPU performance and much-improved CPU performance in the 45W power envelope. Future support for HSA applications and the Mantle graphics API should further improve the chip's performance.

By Hexus on 80

Kaveri ultimately paves the way for small, cheap computers that make fewer concessions than ever before, though, on a cautionary note, be aware it will be a while before HSA-optimised programs and the much-vaunted Mantle API add the expected lustre to AMD's newest family of APUs.

We've spent the days following CES benchmarking two of AMD's new Kaveri-based APUs. Do the Steamroller x86 architecture, GCN graphics design, and HSA-oriented features impress, or do they come up short against Intel's value-oriented Haswell-based parts? ...

The AMD A8-7600 APU’s performance is somewhat of a mixed bag. Please keep in mind, however, that this APU is actually the low-end model in AMD’s initial Kaveri-based APU line-up. The A8-7600’s CPU cores are clocked lower than other models and its GPU ...

Alright lets wrap things up. I profoundly like the new Kaveri architecture, it is the first true native heterogeneous APU architecture that will set the path into the future. With it's well over 2 Billion transistors it isn't even a cheap chip to...

At idle, and at the same 45 watt specification, the Kaveri APU draws the same amount of power as the two Richland parts. The Core i3-4330, though obviously on a very different platform, is a few watts under that.Our first load power consumption test c...

Judging the success of Kaveri is difficult for a number of reasons. For starters, AMD has yet to supply us with its faster A10 products, and when it comes to the A8-7600 it's not available yet and has no confirmed UK pricing. Nevertheless, there are...

By TheTechReport on

Kaveri may be a questionable proposition for traditional desktops, but it has some appeal everywhere a discrete graphics card isn't an option. Small-form-factor and all-in-one rigs seem particularly ripe for an APU like the A8-7600, which could bring a dose of graphics grunt to machines that typically offer poor gaming experiences.

By ExtremeTech on

We’ll be following up on some of these performance questions in the near future, but we’re guardedly optimistic about the chip’s prospects. But ultimately, Kaveri will only be competitive if developers implement the necessary optimizations for HSA — and no matter how optimistic you are, that’s going to take a while.

By TomsHardware on

Fortunately, this platform doesn’t have to be programmed to specifically. AMD just needs ISVs to adopt OpenCL 2.0. From there, the merits of HSA should become more apparent. We look forward to watching the saga unfold.

Has an exciting new architecture and great graphics performance, but current real-world performance is same as the A10-6800K

By AnandTech on

In a vacuum where all that's available are other AMD parts, Kaveri and its Steamroller cores actually look pretty good. At identical frequencies there's a healthy increase in IPC, and AMD has worked very hard to move its Bulldozer family down to a...

With OpenCL 2.0 still in its infancy, HSA features inaccessible in the current driver stack, legacy instruction sets still prevalent in today's software and the glacial speed of GPU accelerated application development, there’s very little reason to spend the extra money for an “unlocked” 95W APU. Especially when a significantly less expensive 65W model can offer just as much, if not more.
