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 eggsbest bang for buck

Pros: Sub $80 quad core performance with great GPU performance.
65/45W options for small, low power builds

Cons: Requires relatively expensive memory to achieve performance potential, particularly in demanding graphics. DDR3 2133 is more expensive than DDR4.....

Other Thoughts: I paired this with an Inwin VESA case, and and MSI A68H mobo with onboard WiFi for a low power, always on HTPC build. The only moving fans are in the (built in) PS and the proc. Even when setting this up on the desk, it is quiet for what it is and could be made better with the use of an aftermarket cooler. This proc is WAY overkill for the usage it will get, but I didn't want to limit possible need for other uses. The "four" core performance is quite impressive, especially considering this chip costs half what a low end i3 does. The graphics performance makes it almost unfair as compared to 4600 Intel graphics. I am currently using 1333mhz ram and it still works very well for online streaming up to 1080. With the addition of faster memory at some point I cannot see any down side to using this as a dedicated small form factor build.
When you take into consideration the cost savings as compared to a similar Intel build with the emphasis on video performance it would be tough to beat this chip.

4 out of 5 eggsSatisfied and dissapointed

Pros: Very fast.

Cons: Runs real hot! I had to take off an egg for that.

Other Thoughts: If you want speed, get this bad boy; but also make sure you have a way of keeping it cool. Mine was running around 60 Celsius with load.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent value for the price and an overwhelming superior option to Intel's budget Pentium dual cores

Pros: I have had the pleasure of using this APU in two separate builds - one for an ultra-slim mini ITX gaming PC, and the other for a high end HTPC. The former was paired with high speed Muskin redline, dual rank, dual channel RAM at 2400 Mhz speeds; the latter was paired with dual channel Patriot VIPER memory at 1866. I have ALSO used the overclockable version of this chip in a third machine (the A8-7650K).

My overall impression of the A8-7600 is that it is perhaps one of the best value APUs on the market today, and is more than capable of powering office computers, personal machines, and even light gaming rigs. The A8 and its quad core structure can easily provide a seamless multitasking experience (tested in both Windows 10 and Ubuntu GNOME 15.10) - I had LibreOffice open, writing a document, with, on average, 15-20 Firefox tabs open along with Rhythmbox playing music in the background. No stuttering or hanging whatsoever, unlike with my A6-5400K (which is the APU in my personal computer).

Regarding gaming, the APU performs quite poorly under Linux due to the horrible FGLRX (prop driver) support. With open source drivers, forget gaming, unless you are playing some 2D side-scrollers.

However, under Windows 10 64bit, most of my Steam and Blizzard libraries played smoothly at 1080P resolutions and at low-medium presets. Unfortunately, some of the more graphically intensive games with optional eye candy, like Wolfenstein: The Old Blood and Blizzard's Heroes of the Storm had to be turned down to 900p in order to have a steady and smooth framerate. Compare this to my personal machine which uses a much weaker CPU (A6 5400K with iGPU disabled) but much stronger GPU (Sapphire R7 360), where I can play smoothly at 1080p at medium settings for both of these games.

However, older games, like Bioshock Infinite, and Deus Ex: Human Revolution, ran very smoothly at 1080p/medium settings with this APU.

For the price I paid - $80 - the performance is quite satisfactory for all of my clients' needs (office work, school work, personal computing, and light gaming) - but for me, as a gamer, it just didn't provide enough graphics horsepower to give me the smooth 40+ FPS gameplay that I require for my newer AAA titles.

Cons: The only con that I can describe would be the sluggish graphics performance with newer 3D games. If you play older games or less demanding games (Diablo III, Minecraft, etc.) you may be satisfied, but this APU would not be enough for the serious gamer, in my opinion. If you're a bare-budget gamer, better to skip this APU and buy a discounted A6-5400K (disable iGPU and overclock it as much as you can safely) and pair that with an AMD R7 360 or Nvidia GTX 750Ti (or 950). This is my personal computing setup (cost = $400) and I am very satisfied with it.

Other Thoughts: For $10-15 cheaper, you can get a Skylake Pentium dual core. However, if you're not a hardcore gamer, I would recommend going with this APU over any of Intel's bare budget options, for the reason that the A8 offers a quad core setup AND a MUCH more powerful integrated graphics solution.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for a HTPC

Pros: Great CPU. Easy to install. Paired this with an ASRock FM2A88M PRO3+ and 8 gigs of PNY DDR3 2133 a cheap 128 gig PNY SSD and a really old BFG ( remember them ? ) 450w power supply and made a very cheap, very fast HTPC that is hooked to my 49" with on board graphics via the built in HDMI port. Can Play everything in HD - Youtube, Netflix, Hulu etc. Don't bother spending more on a CPU for a HTPC, this has been running about 6-8 hours a day everyday for almost a year with 0 issues. Very happy with this little guy

Cons: Can't Overclock it?

Other Thoughts: It's a great CPU

5 out of 5 eggsGood processor for the price

Pros: I use it to play WoW, ARMA, CoD, and Counter Strike without any glitches at all! The graphics are decent at best on those games without a graphics card (which you should get if you're doing any kind of gaming at all). It gave me a Windows rating of 7.3 for CPU perfomance on Win 7. Overall, a great APU FOR THE PRICE!!!

Cons: It doesn't make me dinner ;)

Other Thoughts: I don't see why everyone is complaining about the poor performance of stock coolers on this APU...My temp never goes above 70c with the stock cooler even when I've been gaming for 3hrs....
