AMD Fusion A8-3850 APU "Llano" On Linux

On Phoronix there have already been benchmarks of the AMD Radeon HD 6550D graphics found on the A8-3850, so that was not the focus of this comparison. However, in terms of comparing the graphics performance to Intel Sandy Bridge, AMD's Fusion blows it out of the water with the open-source Intel Linux driver. The graphics capabilities on this new hardware are also obviously many times faster than the Fusion E-350.

C-Ray, one of our favorite tests for beating up the CPU with its intense multi-threaded ray-tracing, had showed the power of the Fusion A8-3850. The A8-3850 was faster than the Core i3 2100 (and obviously the Core 2 Duo P7350 and Fusion E-350), but the Intel Core i5 2500K SNB was still about twice as fast.

With the Smallpt path-tracing benchmark, the A8-3850 came in right behind the Core i3 2100.
