AMD A10-5800K

AMD AMD A10-5800K

The AMD A10-5800K is a desktop APU based on the Trinity architecture. The chip is produced ​​in a 32nmprocess and integrates 2 modules with 4 CPU cores clocked at 3.8 to 4.2 GHz. Furthermore, the 5800K has a Radeon HD 7660D graphics unit and a DDR3-1866 memory controller. Due to the unlocked multiplier, the CPU can overclock very easily.

The CPU cores are based on a reworked Bulldozer architecture called Piledriver. Although marketed as a quad-core processor, the A10-5800K includes only two modules with four integer-cores and two floating-point units in total. As a result, the CPU is not a true quad-core processor.

Depending on the benchmark, the CPU performance of the A10-5800K is more or less similar to the desktop Core i3-3220. The chip shows good performance on applications with high parallelization, whereas performance per thread is less impressive. For everyday tasks like Office, multimedia applications or Internet surfing, the 5800K is suitable without restrictions; even demanding 3D games are possible if paired with a dedicated graphics card.

The integrated DirectX 11-compatible Radeon HD 7660D offers all 384 shader cores of the Trinity chip and a core clock of 800 MHz with no Turbo support. On average, the performance of the HD 7660D GPU is comparable to a dedicated Radeon HD 7670M notebook GPU and is noticeably faster than the HD Graphics 4000 as found on Intel’s Ivy Bridge platform.

The power consumption of the entire desktop APU is rated at 100 Watts.
