You can see more of these A10-7800 and A6-7400K Linux preview numbers via 1408098-KH-AMDKAVERI86 on Again, the more interesting tests are to come over the course of the next week or so and pardon the tardiness on these results compared to launch day due to still setting up the new office. You can see how your own Linux system compares to the results shown today by installing the Phoronix Test Suite and then running phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1408098-KH-AMDKAVERI86. It's that easy with full test automation!

For your viewing pleasure are also some power consumption and performance-per-Watt numbers for the APUs via 1408095-KH-MONITORS646. The only other thing to bring up from that data is the CPU/GPU reporting for these new APUs under the Linux 3.13 kernel on Ubuntu 14.04 isn't working appropriately. However, aside from incorrect thermal readings, the A10-7800 and A6-7400K have been running great on Ubuntu Linux.

Stay tuned for more AMD APU Linux tests at Phoronix. Have other test requests for these new APUs besides what's been mentioned? Let me know!
