Dual Graphics configurations are supported so the integrated graphics core of the new APUs can be combined in CrossFireX subsystems together with discrete graphics cards of AMD Radeon HD 6450, 6570 and 6670 series.

Don't forget the 7750. Not everyone know but, it's work.

7750 really !!
Maybe HD5000 works also.

I didnt expect this performance i was hoping it was 10 to 20 percent average. looks like it has less 5 percent only, A simple increase clock speed wont change anything for AMD.

BUT Its not Richland we are waiting for, but the new AMD Kaviri

Yeah. But for me, it will suck if Kaveri demands a new socket/mobo.

FM2+ might support FM2 Processors, much like the AM2, AM2+ and AMD3.

to be optimistic FM2+ might support 22nm processors, since new Kaveri is 28mn

Ironic isn't it? Because I want New CPU (Kaveri) w/o changing Mobo. Not new Mobo with old CPU.

Where is this 15% performance that Richland is providing? It is nowhere. Only 5% performance boost just because of a clock increase. Then power consumption reduction numbers is not even true to what you are saying. It is more of a hot plate compared to Trinity. Using Celeron or Pentium processors will beat this processor. The only benefits the Richland processor provides is an improvement on Turbo Core technology and better graphics -- whoopie.

The only thing that is going for AMD is if people are looking at an i7-3770S for good graphics and CPU performance with no plans of overclocking in the future, then AMD APU look a lot better. The desktop APU is bottleneck by memory bandwidth, so an A8-5600 or A8-6600 is the maximum. Can push to a A10, but the stream processors are going to be starving for more memory bandwidth. The A6-6400K looks like a good sweet APU.

Woow, A-10 6700 at 3.9ghz in 65w TDP, nice !!

Is it Sarcasm?? but of course it's really nice (for AMD). But an old thing for Intel.

Would be nice to see some underclocking/undervolting. This could simulate the 6700, as well as give a good idea how low power this platform can get while still maintaining decent performance. To me that's more interesting than overclocking results.

I do not see the difference between trinity and richland in the picture

Could this be what the Xbone will perform like?

So what was this 15 to 20% improvement we were hearing about with richland in the gpu sector. kind of disappointing to only see only a 4 to 5% diff in gpu performance instead.

I'll be giving AMD another chance as my main desktop very soon, been using their E350 boards/HD series GPU for many years now and am more than satisfied

The big improvement is in Idle power consumption - about 25% less than Haswell. Otherwise this is Piledriver version 1.1 . We are all waiting for killer Kaveri.

These are aimed for the market not the game players they are aimed at the lower market segment without a dedicated graphics card. So why use tests which include higher priced or specked systems or CPU's. They should be compared and tested against similar prices systems without a dedicated graphics card. Any tests done with a dedicated graphics card are not valid as the design is for systems without dedicated graphic cards, if one must have a dedicated card in the test to get some sort of result then say that the other manufacture has nothing to compare against and is an abject failure in this market segment.

A10-6800K A10-5800K is the successor and 100W, level 2 cache is the same TDP and 32nm process with the same amount. However, working at a higher clock rate A10-6800K 4.1ghz and 4.4ghz reinforcement having a high speed. This video editing, general multitasking segments 68 and 71, in a very impressive image-editing segments 69 83 scoring, A10-5800K better performance in benchmark tests. This segment of the multi-task image-editing video segments 67, 61, 66 and 65 compares with the general threw A10-5800K.

We have almost the same score big increase A10-6800K multitasking, you can see that seen in image- and video editing segment. Overall, about 9.2 cents A10-6800K according A10-5800K in fast benchmarks. This is a healthy and welcome increase, but the clock speed increase is not surprising considering the price of fifteen percent.

4.4ghz when overclocking, A10-6800K giving it 74 points overall standings, the multi-task image-editing video editing segment 88, scored 72 and 71. This is the default clock settings at their default clock setting A10-6800K A10-5800K and over have a 15 percent performance increase over about four percent.
