AMD A10 Kaveri APU Pictured and Tested
The AMD “Kaveri” APUs are just a few weeks out from launch and today we get to see the chip in the flesh and look at the performance in Cinebench.
The biggest update to the “Kaveri” processors is the 512 GCN cores that it will undoubtedly make it the strongest IGP integrated into any processor on the market. The new APUs are also based on the Steamroller B architecture that is fabricated using the 28nm process and uses the FM2+ AMD Socket interface.
Along with the Steamroller architecture the flagship A10-7850K is a quad-core CPU that sports clock speeds up to 4GHz and has a 4MB L2 cache. Additionally, the IGP is comes with a clock speed of 720MHz and The total TDP for the processor is only 95W for both the CPU and GPU. So, the power envelope is actually pretty low considering it has both good processing and gaming performance.
As you can see from the image the performance of the A10-7850K is just under that of the Intel Core i5-3317U in the single-threaded testing and it scored 311 cb in the multi-threaded test.
