AMD Llano A8-3850 APU and Gigabyte A75-UD4H Launch Review
Earlier this year AMD launched their E-Series APUs which were the first step in creating a range of products which combined traditional CPU and GPU components into one chip. This, mixed with an ever increasing list of programs which are designed to accelerate CPU performance using the GPU helped bring a higher level of performance to mobile and small form factor systems.
A couple of weeks ago AMD added to their APU range with the release of mobile chips from the A-Series and today we get to see the desktop equivalent for the first time and along with them a new range of motherboards.
Today we have the A8-3850 APU running on Gigabytes A75-UD4H motherboard and will be putting them through a selection of tests to find out how they compare to the equivalent i3/Z68 system. Whether you are interested in media conversion, playback or gaming performance this article will demonstrate where the A8 and A75 fit into the current market.
