For many of those application you’ll notice a bigger difference with a SSD over a traditional hard drive than you will a faster processor. As for overclocking, our testing suggests you shouldn’t expect much more than a MHz boost. In terms of specifics, in the K model you get stream shaders and 24 texture units running at MHz. Actually, to be more specific, the cores are actually in Piledriver specification. Created at Tue, 25 Dec The idea is to deliver the performance of two cores in die space nearer one core.

Of course, you can get most games running smoothly if you crush the details aggressively enough, which means this chip is capable of some 8500k fun in, for example, a media PC hooked up to an HDTV. At the other end of the spectrum, use the same resolution for Just Cause 2 at high detail settings but, again, no anti-aliasing and a borderline playable 28 frames per second is possible.
For everyday tasks like Office, multimedia applications or Internet surfing, the K is suitable without restrictions; even demanding 3D games are possible if paired with a dedicated graphics card. Integrated GPU performance for parallel computing. Run Metro at 1, x using the global ‘high’ rather than ‘very high’ setting and you’ll get just 12fps without anti-aliasing.
For example, the L3 cache has been abandoned. Already have an account?

That said, Trinity and its ilk are incredible when you look at processors and platforms from just a few years ago. A100 up for freeit takes 30 seconds.

Clock speeds are rated at 3. In other words, the Piledriver update is pretty small fry.
PassMark – AMD AK APU – Price performance comparison
Like Intel’s “K” series processors, the AK unlocked for easier overclocking. In many ways, it’s the integrated graphics that’s most interesting. It’s very close on paper thanks to having the same core and module count. 580k0 the following list you can select and also search for devices that should be added to the comparison.
It’s already happened to phones and tablets. That means modules containing two integer units, but sharing just about everything else including fetch, decode and floating point resources.

To wrap up on a couple of final points of hardware house keeping, there’s the matter of socket compatibility. Combination of all six facets. For the first generation of Bulldozer, it wasn’t hugely successful by either metric, being both bloated in size and not terribly quick. With that covered, let’s have a gander at performance.
Meanwhile, AMD’s current Fusion chips are resolutely designed as low power or low-budget chips. Cloud Gate Data courtesy FutureMark. The idea is to deliver the performance of two cores in die space nearer one core. We show the least amount of ads whenever possible. Cinebench R10 – Rendering Single 32Bit. That sounds futuristic and is indeed the expected shape of things to come for the PC. We’ll be looking exclusively at Trinity, which covers the performance segment and replaces the Llano-based A8-series.
