AMD A8-8600P vs AMD Pro A6-8500B

AMD A8-8600P

► remove AMD A8-8600P

The AMD A8-8600P is a mid-range Carrizo APU of 2015 for mainstream laptops. It is a SoC that contains two Excavator CPU modules (with 4 integer and 2 FP units counted as 4 compute cores), a Radeon R7 graphics card with 6 compute cores (384 shaders), a DDR3-2133 (35 Watt cTDP) memory controller and a video engine (including UVD 6 with hardware HEVC / H.265 decoding). Compared to the faster A10-8700P, the A8-8600P features a slower clocked CPU and GPU.

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. The faster Carrizo models gain about 35% in 3DMark 11 depending on the cTDP and results for the A8-8600P model should be similar.

AMD Pro A6-8500B

► remove AMD Pro A6-8500B

The AMD Pro A6-8500B is a low-end Carrizo APU (6th APU generation) of 2015 for business 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 (not confirmed) memory controller and a video engine (including UVD 6 with hardware HEVC / H.265 decoding). 

The AMD Pro A6-8500B is similar to the consumer version, the A6-8500P, but offers business support and a ensure a long-tail support program. 

Due to the single module configuration, the Pro A6-8500B 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. The performance should be identical to the consumer version AMD A6-8500P.
