AMD A10-7850K Radeon R7 Graphics Comparison

The latest benchmarks of the AMD A10-7850K APU to share on Phoronix and to complement yesterday's Windows vs. Linux OpenGL comparison are benchmarks of the APU's Radeon R7 Graphics compared to numerous AMD Radeon and NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards.

For this day-after-launch benchmarking of AMD's Kaveri on Linux is an OpenGL comparison atop Ubuntu of the Radeon R7 graphics and then using the new APU and pairing it with several different graphics cards. The AMD Radeon graphics cards used for this first comparison were the HD 6450, HD 6770, HD 6870, and HD 7850. On the NVIDIA side was the GeForce GT 240, GT 520, and GTX 550 Ti graphics cards. The comparison was limited to the modern low-end and mid-range graphics cards that I have available on hand.

For this benchmarking from Ubuntu 13.10 with the Linux 3.11 kernel the latest proprietary graphics drivers were tested: the launch-day AMD Catalyst Beta was used (fglrx 13.30.1 / OpenGL 4.3.12682) and on the GeForce side was NVIDIA's 331.38 release. The same AMD A10-7850K Kaveri system and hardware/software configuration was used throughout all of the testing.

All of this Ubuntu Linux GPU testing was done via the open-source Phoronix Test Suite software. With the Phoronix Test Suite you have results that are 100% automated, fully reproducible, and can be easily compared and evaluated by third parties. To compare your own system's performance against the assortment of benchmarks in this article just run phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1401158-PL-KAVERIGPU51 for the automated download/installation of all tests, automatic configuration, automatic test execution, and side-by-side results merging and analysis.

In the coming days are more AMD A10 Kaveri benchmarks including OpenCL results, the full-on A10-7850K performance comparison to other AMD/Intel CPU/APUs, compiler testing, and various other performance articles.
