AMD A10-5800K APU (Virgo) Performance Review

A10 Gaming with a Club 3D Radeon 7850 royalQueen

Many of AMD’s APU’s which have been released so far are aimed at entry and mainstream gamers with pricing to match. The added bonus of being able to combine budget Radeons with the APU in CrossFire for enhanced performance was useful. For the A10 it is hitting a price and performance level which is more suited to discrete GPU upgrades, though Crossfire of budget cards is also supported.

To demonstrate the performance of a potential upgrade we have taken the mainstream (£150) 7850 1GB and the performance changes are outlined below.

On the last page we saw that the A10 offered the best gaming performance we have seen to date from an "onboard" solution. This page shows us that adding an extra £150 to our system budget now, or in the future can have great rewards. The 7850 1GB gives us some great 1920×1080 performance in the latest games when combined with the new APU platform and it does so never crossing 70°C at load.
