AMD A6-5357M vs AMD A10-5757M vs AMD A8-5557M

AMD A6-5357M

► remove AMD A6-5357M

The AMD A6-5357M is a mobile dual-core processor based on the Richland-architecture. In contrast to the A6-5350M, the A6-5357M is a BGA version. As successor to the A6-4400M, the A6-5350M/5357M has a slightly higher CPU and graphics performance and settles in the low end segment. The APU integrates 2 CPU cores, a DirectX 11 graphics unit and the Northbridge along with a DDR3 memory controller.

Compared to Trinity, Richland has been modified just slightly. Therefore, no changes in the feature set or the Pro-MHz performance can be reported. The design of the chip is still based on the Bulldozer architecture, which consists of so-called modules. Each module integrates 2 integer units, but only one FPU. Just like Trinity, Richland supports nearly all current techniques such as AVX (including FMA), AES or Turbo Core.

According to the clock rates of 2.9 to 3.5 GHz, the A6-5357M should perform about 15 percent faster than the A6-4400M and just reach a Pentium P6100. Consequently, the performance in less demanding applications and games is sufficient.

The graphics unit called Radeon HD 8450G offers 192 shader units (VLIW4) and clocks slightly higher than the HD 7520G at 533 - 720 MHz. With fast dual-channel memory, performance is expected to match a dedicated Radeon HD 7470M.

The power consumption of the entire APU is rated at 35 watts, which is comparable to conventional middle-class models of competition. Thus, the APU is best suited for 14 inch notebooks or bigger.

AMD A10-5757M

The AMD A10-5757M is a mobile quad-core processor based on the Richland-architecture. In contrast to the A10-5750M, the 5757M is a BGA version. As the successor of the A10-4600M, the A10-5750M/5757M offers a slightly higher CPU and graphics performance and represents the new top model of the A-series (March 2013).

Compared to Trinity, Richland has been modified just slightly. Therefore, no changes in the feature set or the Pro-MHz performance can be reported. The design of the chip is still based on the Bulldozer architecture, which consists of so-called modules. Each of the two modules integrates 2 integer units, but only one FPU. Just like Trinity, Richland supports nearly all current techniques such as AVX (including FMA), AES or Turbo Core.

Our benchmarks show a performance increase of around 10 percent on the A10-4600M. Thus, the A10-5757M performs at the level of a Core i3-2330M (Sandy Bridge).

The graphics unit called Radeon HD 8650G offers 384 shader units (VLIW4) and clocks at 533 - 720 MHz (slightly higher than the HD 7660G). With fast dual-channel memory, performance is similar to a dedicated HD 7670M.

The power consumption of the entire APU is rated at 35 watts, which is comparable to conventional middle-class models of competition. Thus, the APU is best suited for 14 inch notebooks or bigger.

AMD A8-5557M

The AMD A8-5557M is a mobile quad-core processor based on the Richland-architecture. In contrast to the A8-5550M, the 5557M is a BGA version. As successor to the A8-4500M, the A8-5550M/5557M has a slightly higher CPU and graphics performance and settles in the lower middle class. The APU integrates 4 CPU cores, a DirectX 11 graphics unit and the Northbridge along with a DDR3 memory controller.

Compared to Trinity, Richland has been modified just slightly. Therefore, no changes in the feature set or the Pro-MHz performance can be reported. The design of the chip is still based on the Bulldozer architecture, which consists of so-called modules. Each of the two modules integrates 2 integer units, but only one FPU. Just like Trinity, Richland supports nearly all current techniques such as AVX (including FMA), AES or Turbo Core.

According to the clock rates of 2.1 to 3.1 GHz, the A8-5557M should perform about 15 percent slower than the A10-5750M and just reach a Core i3-2310M. Consequently, the performance in current applications and games is sufficient.

The graphics unit called Radeon HD 8550G offers 256 shader units (VLIW4) and clocks slightly higher than the HD 7640G at 554 -  720 MHz. With fast dual-channel memory, performance is expected to match a dedicated Radeon HD 7570M.

The power consumption of the entire APU is rated at 35 watts, which is comparable to conventional middle-class models of competition. Thus, the APU is best suited for 14 inch notebooks or bigger.
