AMD Trinity Linux Memory Performance
The Stream tests obviously also illustrate the memory frequency performance differences very well.
HMMer is another one of many test profiles that illustrate the impact of the DDR3 memory frequency from the latest-generation AMD APU platform.
For those that are looking to upgrade to the new AMD Trinity platform, regardless of whether you plan to be using the integrated Radeon HD graphics or not, it's very important to not skimp out on the RAM as part of the purchase. These results show that it's very well worth the small premium to go for DDR3-2133MHz memory if you wish to squeeze the most performance out of the APU.
Stay tuned for more AMD A10-5800K Linux testing next week.
