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.

Last month Intel launched their Z97 chipset, essentially an evolution of Z87, which in many cases brought new features such as SATA Express and M.2 compatibility to the mainstream desktop market. There was of course no new CPU at that time with the existing socket 1150 processors working without issue in the new boards. Since then though Intel launched (along with some lower spec models) the Core i7-4790K, a model which sits at the top of their mainstream platform. Today we see how it compares to various other models when installed on Gigabytes Z97X Gaming 5 and paired with PowerColors new dual core 290X Devil 13.
