AMD may be moving to a new socket with the latest APUs but that doesn't mean they are venturing away from their standard APU (and CPU) appearance. Shown above is the A10-5800K and other than the branding it looks near identical to any recent desktop processor from AMD.

Before we look at what the above APU is capable of, here is an overview of the test system for this preview.
