AMD A6-8500P vs AMD FX-8800P

AMD A6-8500P

► remove AMD A6-8500P

The AMD A6-8500P is a low-end Carrizo APU (6th APU generation) of 2015 for mainstream laptops. It is a SoC that contains one Excavator CPU modules (with 2 integer and 1 FP units counted as 2 compute cores), a Radeon R7 graphics card with 4 compute cores (256 shaders), a DDR3-1600 memory controller and a video engine (including UVD 6 with hardware HEVC / H.265 decoding). 

Due to the single module configuration, the A6-8500P is a lot slower than the other Carrizo models with two modules (four cores). While the single thread performance should be similar to a Core i3-4030U, the Multi-Threading scores are only comparable to a Celeron N2940. For low demanding tasks like office and web-browsing, the performance however should be sufficient.

AMD FX-8800P

► remove AMD FX-8800P

The AMD FX-8800P is the top-tier Carrizo APU of 2015 for mainstream laptops. It is a SoC containing two Excavator CPU modules (with 4 integer and 2 FP units counted as 4 compute cores), a Radeon R7 graphics card with 8 compute cores (512 shaders), a DDR3-2133 (35 Watt cTDP) memory controller and a video engine (including UVD 6 with hardware HEVC / H.265 decoding).

The performances of the CPU and GPU cores depend on the configurable TDP. This cTDP can range from 12 to 35 Watts depending on the cooling solution and size of the laptop. Thus, clock speeds of the compute cores will vary. E.g., the GPU can score between 1992 points (15 Watts) to 2753 points (+38% with 35 Watts cTDP) in 3DMark 11 (P).

According to AMD, the 35 Watt configuration scores 12% (Cinebench single-thread) and 15% (Cinebench Multi-threaded) higher compared to the previous Steamroller generation (most likely the AMD FX-7600P). If configured to 15 Watt instead, the gains are higher (40% to 55%) compared to the 19 Watt Kaveri FX-7500 APU.
