As the latest AMD A10-5800K Trinity APU benchmarks under Linux, here's a quick look at the impact that Turbo Core Technology has under Linux.
AMD Turbo Core is the technology that's been around for about two years going back to the AMD Phenom II CPUs that automatically shift the CPU frequency to a higher state when greater performance is desirable. Similar to Intel's Turbo Boost, it's basically the reverse of Cool 'n' Quiet and Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology.
Last November I posted some benchmarks of AMD Turbo Core using the latest hardware at the time while in this article are benchmarks of Turbo Core as toggled from the latest AMD A10-5800K "Trinity" APU. The Turbo Core Technology support for this APU was toggled from the MSI UEFI/BIOS while following that various Linux benchmarks from the Phoronix Test Suite with OpenBenchmarking.org were run to look out for performance differences.
The quad-core A10-5800K has a base frequency of 3.8GHz but can operate at 4.2GHz in its highest Turbo Core mode.
Embedded below are some of these AMD Turbo Core results from the AMD A10 APU while the rest -- along with the system information and logs -- can be found on OpenBenchmarking.org within the AMD A10-5800K Turbo Core On Linux result file.
Continue viewing the rest of these AMD Turbo Core Ubuntu Linux results on OpenBenchmarking.org. You can compare your system's performance to these numbers by simply running phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1210102-RA-TURBOCORE77 to facilitate an automated performance comparison.
