Alien vs. Predator (2010)
It is another DirectX 11 game that doesn’t work on Intel’s integrated systems. As for A8-3800, it looks very decent leaving Radeon HD 6450 far behind in this game. Note that the performance of the integrated Radeon HD 6550D core is very similar to that of its discrete counterpart, Radeon HD 5570. However, the lack of proprietary video memory does affect the performance after all, so there is really no parity between Sumo and Redwood.
Dual Graphics configuration actually works pretty well here. It improves the performance of the Radeon HD 6570 graphics card by almost 50% at no extra cost.
This game supports DirectX 11, but on systems using Intel’s graphics it only works as DirectX 9. However, it doesn’t help even the top Intel HD Graphics 3000 modification to avoid complete defeat. AMD’s graphics core integrated into their A8-3800 processor is about twice as fast.
Llano APUs set new performance standards for the Intel integrated graphics solutions. It is pretty remarkable that you can run this colorful contemporary game on the Lynx platform even in Full HD resolution and with highest graphics quality settings.
Far Cry 2
A8-3800 does pretty well in Far Cry 2 game. Nevertheless, this game is very sensitive to the graphics memory bandwidth that is why the integrated Radeon HD 6550D core is about 20% behind its discrete analogue here.
