AMD A8-8600P

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.

More technical details and features of the 6th generation of APUs (Carrizo) can be found in our launch article.
