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.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat APU

Pros: This APU is a beast. It was super easy to over clock it to 4.1GHZ didn't even need to up the voltage. The only problem that I'm having is overclocking the NB of the chip so I can get my ram up to 2400 but getting just ten percent more muchness out of it, I just gave up because to me it isn't worth it. I have tried paying a few games on it, one being skyrim, it was on low settings before I got decent frame rates. But I plan on buying a R9 video card and seeing if I can get the two to work together.

Cons: just the NB clocking

2 out of 5 eggsWhy go through the trouble?

Pros: Great Processor

Cons: Not great bang for the buck.

Other Thoughts: You pay 160 for the processor and then add another 40-75 for a decent cooler. For less than 200 you can buy a AMD A8-5600K Trinity Quad-Core 3.6GHz & a dedicated MSI R7 250 2GD3 OC Radeon R7 250 2GB Graphics card. The price to performance isn;t what AMD promises us. I have been an AMD Fan Boy since 1999 and I have to say the price to performance and performance to dollar goes to Intel. AMD needs to drop the price to get me back at this point.

3 out of 5 eggsOK for a CPU

Pros: Overclocked to 4.5Ghz @ 1.45v, no issues at all. CPU performs great, couldn't ask for more...GPU is another story.

Cons: Don't expect to play newer games with this, even BF4 that came bundled with it is choppy and has screen tears on high settings with 2133 memory. The CPU will also underclock itself when you're using the GPU no matter what settings you select in bios (stock or overclocked). Tried on two different motherboards (ASRock/ASUS). I do not like the idea of an unlocked CPU setting it's own clock speeds. I bought an unlocked chip for a freakin' reason!! Finally ended up disabling the GPU and getting a card, no issues since.

Other Thoughts: I have a solid motherboard, PSU, and watercooling setup; if I want to load up the CPU with something and play a game, I shouldn't have my CPU throttling down because i'm using too much power or whatever.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome chip, My daily/Work Machine

Pros: Have had this since basically 2 weeks from release day!
Its a great chip. OC'd to 4Ghz on all 4 cores! Temps are great w/ CM TX3.
Blows through all tasks! My machine boots in 3 sec with a 60GB Kingston SSD.
Love the flat IPC, way better gaming performance than Piledriver setups. Quite a move for AMD.
Beat my 6800k @ 4.6 in some benchmarks (this chip running at 4Ghz). Better gaming performance too.

Cons: Doesn't OC aswell as Piledriver (but it has better IPC anyway). FGLRX for Linux (Linux Catalyst) isn't good unless you have an out-of-box linux setup. Any sort of a semi-custom setup and it probably won't work for you.

Other Thoughts: I use a dGPU with this on linux. This is my daily CPU. My work computer is the machine i use all day every day.
Mostly its used for office applications, development applications (sublime, Chromium, Chrome, Firefox w/ Dev tools, Libreoffice).

4 out of 5 eggsI want to like this update

Pros: This is a update from my first review I bashed the cpu due to excessive heat issues while using the stock heat sink and fan. It now has a H80I cooling it and I must say this chip is really nice. It is very responsive and multi tasks at a very respectable level. This APU runs most games at around med to med-low settings at good frame rates very playable , just an all around great base for budget gaming pc!

Cons: The only real con I can say is I wish the stock heatsink and fan were up to the task of cooling this beast , and being that it is not I think they should sell it with out it. Only reason this didnt give it a full 5 star

Other Thoughts: If your looking to build a nice budget minded gaming rig. I wouldnt hesitate to get this APU, just be sure to match it with a good aftermarket cooler and you wont be disappointed!

2 out of 5 eggsI want to like this

Pros: Its an APU.

Cons: I bought this cpu for a build im doing for a friend. To keep costs down I decided to go with an APU and give him space that he could add a graphics card for duel graphics or just go higher end his choice. Got the system built and installed windows and all drivers done. I restart the system after it being on for about an hour and a half to enter the Bios to set timings on the memory and make sure things are configured right. THIS is were the major issues comes in I notice that after the computer running for an hour and say 45 min with a few restarts in that time for updates the cpu is reading 60c at idle in the bios screen. I shut the system off and let it cool down a bit in the mean time i recheck to make sure i had installed the stock heat sink and fan properly , I did and yes i know they are not the best. I turn the system on again this time I install some known high end software to monitor temps just to make sure it wasnt a glitch in the bios and I get pretty much the same temps within a degree or two. I shut down again uninstall the heat sink and fan and remove the cpu check to make sure there nothing physically wrong with that pins heatshield ect. I clean off the stock thermal compound and use my own again a very well known brand to see if it helps at all it does a very small margin at idle im now running 57c which in my eyes is still way to hot. Im scared to even think of my friend fire up a game it could cause it to melt down. I now have on order concealed push pull closed loop 120mm liquid cooler to see if this corrects the issue.

Other Thoughts: I may have gotten a bad cpu , iv built alot of systems over the years and have never gotten one myself and very rarely hear it happening to others so if this doesnt fix the problem ill be setting up an rma and pray the second one is better then the first. If the liquid cooler does resolve the problem im still keeping the egg rating at a 2 for the sole purpose that is this chip is that hot and the stock heat sink is that useless why even put it in the box in the first place. If it doesnt fix it and I do an rma ill rewrite this review on the new cpu. But as we stand 60c at idle is just not right!

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing little piece of hardware!

Pros: CPU+GPU all in one
4 cores at 3.5 GHz Turbo to 3.8
6 R7 based GPU cores on the built in GPu @720Mhz
HSA enabled makes it a potential 10 core compute chip

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Love how responsive this is when mated to 16GB od 1866 Mhz ram. Some gaming at medium settings some a mix of low and mid but...the most important part...the game is smooth and stutter free.
Office tasks make it yawn and it will even handle some light video editing easily enough. Really impressed with it's performance. The APU may very well be the future of main stream computing.

Pros: Love this processor. Very good product, great price

Cons: I was charged for the "Free" so unless you want to pay the extra 42.99 for the game, I would but it somewhere else.

4 out of 5 eggsPromising!

Pros: This is a promising CPU, though it is not without its flaws. It is far more refined than its predecessors. It balances GPU load / CPU load / energy input / heat output extremely well.

Improved CPU and GPU performance compared to its predecessors. I especially noticed CPU improvements.

Cons: Heat, heat, and heat. I suppose I've been spoiled by recent Intel offerings, but a processor that thermal throttles in its stock configuration is unacceptable to me. Running Prime95 torture test results in throttling one or more cores down to 3.1ghz almost immediately. The longer the test runs, the more time it spends at 3.1ghz or below. This should not be advertised as a 3.5ghz quad-core processor, unless the stock cooling (or heat dissipation within the core) is improved.

Any minor use of the GPU will arbitrarily lower CPU clock speed. This is likely to balance energy use / heat output, but is a poor compromise in my opinion. I first noticed this when running GPU-Z, which has a light 3D rendering sequence (not even full screen) to help determine PCI-E bus speed. Any time the rendering sequence was running, the CPU clock would automatically drop to below 3.0ghz. If this was a 3D graphics intensive game, I might understand, but not a 3D rendering of a small worm, moving through space (again a light 3D rendering just to load the graphics card slightly).

This CPU has serious drawbacks for those that might load it heavily.

Other Thoughts: Clearly AMD is trying to offer a balance of great GPU vs. great CPU performance. They've done both great (benchmarks are outstanding compared to Richland), but they don't play well together.

Loading the CPU up 100% results in nearly-instant thermal throttling. I first experienced this kind of reaction when Intel moved to their 22nm process in the Ivy-Bridge series, but that was largely at overclocked speeds or with very poor cooling (ITX case, for example).

It seems AMD's transition to 28nm is partly to blame, if my experience with Intel 22nm chips is of any correlation. I tried a larger cooler that I had from a Socket 754 system.. The cooler wasn't a whole lot larger (it actually fit the socket too!), but it was a serious hunk of aluminum that weighed almost twice what the stock cooler does, and had more surface area against the IHS on the CPU. It should pull heat quicker, if heat is the cause of the throttling.

That made nearly zero difference, which tells me that things are heating up inside the CPU (and integrated heat spreader) faster than it can dissipate. This was exactly what I experienced with Ivy Bridge.

Hard to tell where AMD will go from here. I think they made a fantastic CPU (Kaveri). But how long it can sustain heavy loading at the advertised clock speed(s) is in question, in my opinion.

The PC I used this chip for is an office workstation--- So it will likely benefit from both AMD's improvement in the CPU and GPU space, as heavy usage is not sustained. This same usage represents probably 75%+ PCs out there, so AMD has a winner, even though it has its drawbacks.

FWIW (and I'll be the first to tell you to take it with a grain of salt) Windows Experience CPU Score is a 7.6. That ranks right up at the top in this price point. GPU is a 6.1 business / 6.1 gaming, again not a bad showing.
