    Phoronix: AMD A10-7850K vs. Intel/AMD CPU/APU Comparison

    Two days ago AMD launched their "Kaveri" APUs to mixed reactions. On launch-day we provided a Linux overview of the AMD A10-7850K APU and followed that with an Ubuntu Linux vs. Windows 8.1 performance comparison for this top-end Kaveri APU. Yesterday was then the AMD Kaveri APU compared to discrete AMD/NVIDIA GPUs and now today we've finally had the time to finish the tests most people have been looking forward to: the A10-7850K comparison against various other AMD and Intel CPU/APUs. These Linux tests cover a range of both processor and graphics testing from Ubuntu 14.04 across a wide selection of Intel and AMD hardware.

    x264 benchmark load

    Hi Michael,

    did you use the same quality settings and input material for x264 as in the older benchmark in the article Intel Core i7 4770K "Haswell" Benchmarks On Ubuntu Linux

    I would be interested, because it yes x264 got quite a lot quicker!

    Regards

      Why no Richland graphics tests?

        You can click the titles of the graph to load the test profiles on OpenBenchmarking.org and it shows the test profile version, upstream test, changes between tests, etc.

                Thank you Michael, this is what i been asking for

                I think Kaveri will get better with some time, for the price it's a good APU.
                I expected more from the GPU but i think it's catalyst that needs to shape up.

                  I don't have any Iris Pro system. I only had an Iris Pro ultrabook on loan for a short time from System76.

                    Impressive

                    I think the most interesting benchmarks are Himeno and Primesieve.
                    The fact that a 3.7ghz quad core can beat the 4ghz octacore fx8350 by such a great margin shows a great potential for the steamroller architecture!

                      It's looking like I'll be getting a <= 65 W TDP Haswell i3 or i5 for my mini-ITX PC if I guess how the 65 W TDP Kaveri chips might perform based on this article.

                        I can get 65 Watt Kaveri TDP results out, happen to be a premium subscriber? This motherboard has a completely configurable TDP value down to 45 Watts for the A10-7850K.

                          Thanks but seeing that the 95 W TDP AMD APU has issues beating a 54 W Core i3, I'm pretty sure the 65 W AMD APUs are just going to do worse. I'm just waiting on actual retail prices for the APUs before making a final decision.

                          I'm not a premium subscriber but I do occasionally donate through PayPal (using a different email than the one for this account) because I have ad blocking on. It's actually costing me more than the subscription during the span since I've started visiting phoronix, haha. Even compared to the $14 per 3 month subscription plan during the same time, I still come out behind. Oh well, I have my reasons.

                            Probably it is not a catalyst issue. It seems like CPU is not fast enough for GPU.

                              I'd say it's limited by the system ram speed, I'd like to see some ram OC gaming tests. Remember it's got 512 GCN shaders @ 720Mhz but is sharing the memory bus with the CPU.

                              Either way it looks like this will be in my new HTPC/Steambox.
