But it’s all a bit complicated for what is in the end a platform with limited upgrade options. But in any case, the top-end AK hardly benefited either.
In line with our previous test experience with the AK APU, the Dual Graphics technology showed its mettle when we cranked up the gaming settings to “High” as seen in the second attached graph.
There is the prospect of using Hybrid Crossfire to pair the integrated GPU with a cheap graphics card. Depending on the SKU these will differ:. And that means a unique socket, known as FM2.

For starters, it’s one of the most technically interesting CPUs around right now. Page 7 of 9. Though we always felt that on the processor side AMD might graphucs forfeited a little bit too much, they compensate with a very powerful graphics engine harbored inside that CPU. Mind you that not all Trinity APUs will have cores.
The AMD A is a chip we’re desperate to like.

Let’s realize one thing here, integrated GPUs whether that is in the chipset or CPU have always have been bad in terms of performance. Futuremark 3DMark Vantage 3DMark scores are looking pretty rosy for even the integrated graphics performance on the A as it’s just 4. This means, it still delivers firepower that graphis almost match a GeForce GT discrete graphics card and is notably speedier than any other processor’s integrated graphics performance. Based on A10-57000 architecture this processor slash graphics hybrid symbiosis called APU remains hard to beat in terms of features performance.

AMD A10 review – The Trinity GPU
It will be interesting to see how this affects actual gaming performance. We’ll explain that later on.
This will give us some insights to improvements made from enabling Dual Graphics Technology. Based on Piledriver architecture this processor slash graphics hybrid symbiosis called APU.
You can reach out to them here. With performance close to the this might be the budg To put all that into context, the FX achieves over 70 frames per second average in our World in Conflict test while the A slips under 60, probably thanks to the lack of L3 cache memory.
Quite important to know is that the new UVD engine also has an H.
In the end, however graphis cold, hard numbers and practicality that counts, not intellectual niceties. Thanks to that integrated graphics core, it has different pin-out requirements to other AMD chips. The reduced clock speeds has hardly degraded the A’s gaming performance against the AK. Now we are not claiming that integrated solutions especially in a CPU will ever reach the level of a dedicated graphics card, but we do have to acknowledge that what AMD placed into Trinity is impressive.
Per core that means more efficiency, but also tesselation performance will have gone up a notch or two. The A turned in rather graphiics performance for this test and actually fared better than the AK, rivaling discrete class GPUs.
In games, however, the A10’s missing L3 cache causes some frame rate pain. And trust us, pretty soon you’ll want heftier hardware. Once more, we find the A raking in excellent integrated graphics performance, while smoking the competition. That’s a bit of a bummer because it means you can’t buy an Abased system and retain the option of upgrading to heftier hardware later on. In multi-threaded benchmarks like video encoding and pro rendering, the A is pretty close to the AMD FXas you might expect – they both have four AMD Piledriver spec cores and clockspeeds that aren’t a million miles apart.
