Overview

AMD A-Series APU

Get More of What You Want with an AMD A-Series APU

We changed the game for PCs by revolutionizing the APU which combines the power of a multicore CPU with AMD Radeon™ graphics all in one energy-efficient chip.
  • Unlock your system's full potential with HSA-enabled APUs
  • Experience a new level of immersion with AMD TrueAudio technology¹
  • Blaze through apps with AMD Turbo Core technology²
  • Use AMD Mantle technology³ to raise your game to unprecedented levels with hyper-efficient performance
  • Get extreme performance with Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture, featuring supercharged AMD Radeon™ R7 graphics.4

So What is HSA, Exactly?

Your APU with HSA = A Team of Specialists

AMD A-Series APU

You can think of HSA as a team with different players lending their unique talents to form one powerful unit. The CPU leads the system through everyday tasks. The GPU can zoom its way through tasks that are particularly data-intensive. Other components work together with the CPU and GPU in various, specialized processing tasks. With each member of the team performing a task that is especially suited to it, the efficiencies are designed to give you an enormous boost in performance.

AMD True-Audio Technology – What's the Difference?

Your Games Now Sound as Good as They Look¹

The expectations of gamers have never been higher. Graphics quality and processing speed have advanced rapidly, and the games of today are light years ahead of those from just a few years ago. But advancements in game audio have been more sporadic and less widely adopted. Sound is a critically important part of the immersive experience for gamers and sound engineers are eager to advance their art, but they haven't enjoyed the same kind of attention that continually drives graphics improvements. That is, until now.

AMD's Revolutionary Mantle

AMD's Mantle is a groundbreaking graphics API that promises to transform the world of game development to help bring better, faster games to the PC. Read on to discover how AMD is working with the game development community to revolutionize the PC gaming experience.

What Mantle Does

AMD A-Series APUMantle is the Harmony of Three Essential Ingredients:
  1. A driver within the AMD Catalyst™ software suite that lets applications speak directly to the Graphics Core Next architecture;
  2. A GPU or APU enabled with the Graphics Core Next architecture;
  3. An application or game written to take advantage of Mantle.

Mantle reduces the CPU's workload by giving developers a way to talk to the GPU directly with much less translation. With less work for the CPU to do, programmers can squeeze much more performance from a system, delivering the greatest benefits in gaming systems where the CPU can be the bottleneck.

What it Means for Gamers

Now that Mantle has freed up some extra CPU capacity, we expect Mantle will lead to better games, and more of them, since Mantle makes game development easier. That's not all Mantle will do for gamers. By shifting work to the GPU, a mid-range or older CPU isn't the same handicap it was before. With Mantle, the GPU becomes the critical part of the system, and GPU upgrades will have a bigger impact than before.

GCN Architecture

AMD A-Series APU

Primed to Enable Astonishing Performance and Breathtaking Image Quality


Available on select AMD Radeon™ R7 series, R9 series and HD 7000 series graphics cards, the visionary Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architectureis a radically new approach to the design of a consumer GPU, making it a top choice for gamers who expect the best.

Designed to push not only the boundaries of DirectX® 11 gaming, the GCN Architecture is also AMD's first design specifically engineered for general computing. Representing the cutting edge of AMD's graphics expertise, GCN GPUs are more than capable of handling workloads-and programming languages-traditionally exclusive to the main processor. Coupled with the dramatic rise of GPU-aware programming languages like C++ AMP and OpenCL™, the GCN Architecture is the right architecture at the right time.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU

Pros: Runs very very cool 29c at idle and 48c at max load.
Blew my mind when I was able to play back 4K Video without stuttering and without a GPU.Plays new games like Titanfall,Alien Isolation,and Tomb Raider at 1080p at Medium High settings and 900p at high settings.Perfect for a HTPC.
The IGPU on this thing way outperforms anything Intel has to offer.

Cons: None that I can think of. Maybe still a bit high should be about 30 bucks less.

Other Thoughts: MSI A88X Gaming
A10-7850K
G.skill DDR3 2400 2 x 8GB
Sandisk 128GB SSD

4 out of 5 eggsOK

Pros: Undecided.

Cons: Runs WAAAAAAAAAAY Hot! Idles at over 40c with water cooling.
If it lasts longer than a couple years I will be impressed.
As far as I know this will only crossfire with a crappier video card.

Other Thoughts: My 3 year old build (fm3) is faster than this with slower memory and runs way cooler ( idles at 23c)

5 out of 5 eggsgreat performing apu for media and web surfing.

Pros: 95w, r7 graphics, 12 compute cores and amd brand.

Cons: none. (I paid $150)

Other Thoughts: my first cpu purchase was an amd 64 x2 5600 and I have been a fan of the brand ever since. other amd cpu's I have purchased and used include the Sempron x1 140 (3 of them), the athlon II x3 435, the phenom II x4 965, the fx-4100 x4 and now the a10-7850k x4. all performed soundly and up to specs. the a10-7850k runs surprisingly cool, overclocks nicely and lives up to the hype.
with amd the price-to-performance ratio can not be beat in my opinion and their reliability is top notch. I have not purchased any other brand of cpu/apu up to this point and I do not anticipate doing so in the future.

5 out of 5 eggsWhy AMD APUs are perfect for HTPC

Pros: Power consumption.
Cooling requirements.
GPU performance.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: AMD made the perfect APU for an HTPC when they designed these chips. Great power consumption with the combined GPU performance of an R7 gpu makes this chip my go to for HTPC. It is more than capable of playing all of my movies and TV shows in 1080p. The lack of a dedicated graphics card requirements reduces the power footprint while lowering it's overall cooling requirements. I use a dedicated PC gaming rig which I can use to stream my games to my living room TV via the HTPC. It is a quick processor capable of playing newer PC games. If you are looking for an APU that will play Crysis at 4k with max settings, this chip is not for you. If you want to play Crysis at med to high settings at 1080 or want to make a good media center, then this chip is perfect for you.

5 out of 5 eggsAPU's from first gen to fourth gen

Pros: Great Graphics core Intergration , Real Life TrueAudio DSP & Dual Graphics Capable

Cons: its IPC's are much less than Richland's ,other then that its a first time HSA integration between graphics / CPU working together

Other Thoughts: became a fan after my first processor combo thee Athlon 64 bit then upgraded to a Athlon X2 5200+ then thee Phenom II lineup then thee Fx and the APU varient all are energy efficient and compared to the blue & green team I get my money's worth and abled to do Video editing and Gaming at ease also I own a Hp Pavilion DV6 Laptop with a first Gen APU Llano with a Quad-Core and BeatsAudio DSP that im able to listen music with and do streaming on the go so I pretty much love all AMD products because its Budget friendly and price to performance ration king, I just recently built a PC for my dad a 7850k with ASrock motherboard and AMD Radeon R7 250 Dual Graphics & my Father can't get enough of his newly built system plus along with AMD Catalyst 14.14 Omega Drivers its even more efficiant, with much more FPS and much more less TDP

5 out of 5 eggsPleasantly Surprised

Pros: I really wasn't expecting to be able to play games like titanfall at 1080p on an apu by itself (low textures to get a smooth frame rate). Very pleased.

Cons: N/A

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I purchased the 7850k along with some G.Skill 2400 mhz ram not too long ago. I mainly do photo/video work and with the fast memory it really does a great job! For the price i don't think you could get a better processor that will be able to handle the multitasking like i do. As we know photo/video editing is very intensive on your hardware, and as i've come to find out this is a great product. I recently upgraded my system with a 270x which even further extends my usage. I couldn't have asked for better performance at the price i paid

Cons: Not so much of a con, but if you're looking to play games at 1080 on Medium-High Settings look elsewere unless you're adding a graphics card. This can play games with fast memory on 1080 but at a reduction of the picture quality. If you use it how it is meant to be used it is great!
