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.

4 out of 5 eggsMeets my needs

Pros: Low TDP, Good IGPU, Decent Speeds

Plays what few PC games I play right now very well (Combat Arms, Runescape)

Cons: Only con I have is AMD still uses PGA instead of LGA but I knew that when buying the chip

*See Other Thoughts*

Other Thoughts: Not sure if this is the CPU or the motherboard, but this was the first build I've encountered where the Windows generic drivers don't work/load. Had to use a linux live boot to put the drivers on my hard drive then run them locally from there.

My Build:

CPU: AMD A10-7800 FM2+

MoBo: Gigabyte ITX FM2a88x WIFI

RAM: G.Skill Ripjaw X 16GB DDR3 @2133 (2GB dedicated to IGPU)

SSDs: Crucial MX100 256GB (Windows), Kingston V300 60GB (Linux, from old laptop)

PSU EVGA Supernova GS 650w (Plan to move to new system)

4 out of 5 eggsUpdate

Pros: Same as before.

Cons: Same.

Other Thoughts: Update to my review on 1/15/15. Got it fully figured out now. In 45w mode the 4 cpu cores top out at 44w, all 12 cores use 65w in 45w mode. In 65w mode, you guessed it, just the 4 cpu cores use 65w. Under %90 load (converting video) 45w gets you to 3.1Ghz. It does run consistent at 3.5 Ghz when gaming in 45w mode. I think the gaming performance is more than acceptable (no aa/af), for the price and power usage the performance is great.

2 out of 5 eggsUnreliable on Linux, or anything but Windows

Pros: AMD APU's are great for casual Windows-only gaming; or non-gaming office boxes.

Cons: AMD has essentially abandoned non-Windows users. AMD/ATI non-Windows video drivers are too old to function with modern Linux kernels. They cause X to crash--they're completely unreliable. With AMD unwilling to open source their code for Linux developers to fix the problems; Linux users are forced to abandon the proprietary hardware accelerated drivers that make the chip run fast, or give-up and buy an nVidia video card to fix their AMD APU.

Other Thoughts: This is really a shame. The tech-savvy users put AMD on the map. While those very same Linux users represent only 1% of AMD customers, we are the majority of IT system designers, who make purchasing recommendations.

5 out of 5 eggsMoteratly priced works great

Pros: Very low power consumption, my ceiling fan makes more noise than this does. Mediocre graphics performance by todays standards, but for any computer that isn't a gaming machine it is extremely capable. Dual display as soon as drivers loaded worked like a champ. I didn't really notice much performance boost from 3.0 GHz Sempron III, but I'm using 16GB memory and 256GB SSD. What is most noticed though is how quiet it operates. I bet with a bigger heat sink it could even go fan less. The AMD heat sink is barely 5/8" tall with a 1/2" fan on it, just over 1" total from CPU to top of fan. Put a 2" tall heat sink and I bet it could be fan-less. MSi Command Center shows fan in smart mode right at 38% and 2000 rpm or less, temp at 43C/109F.

Cons: Mediocre graphics performance by todays standards.

Other Thoughts: Very good value for any business class computer, or if someone wants a very fast web computer. Will play games just fine, but not very good if doing maximum graphics.

5 out of 5 eggsHTPC on a chip!

Pros: This processor has more than enough power to run a Home Theater PC (HTPC) with room to spare - even if you turn up the post processing on the graphics.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: You can even game on it, giving you gaming on your main TV. What is there not to love!

4 out of 5 eggsNot what I expected

Pros: It works, will be fine for my intended use. Usually I have more pros but that's about all I can say.

Cons: No cons either, it will work for its purpose.

Other Thoughts: I got to use in a vesa case with a built in 80w psu, a poor mans all-in-one for light gaming. I know TDP is not a measure of actual power usage, but this is the first cpu I seen that actual usage exceeds TDP. In 45w mode it can hit 67w @ 3.2Ghz %50 load. I can verifiy the reviewer that said 3.1Ghz to get it to run about 45w. There really is a power tipping point between 3.1 and 3.2.

5 out of 5 eggsNice speedy APU

Pros: Worked with my asrock FM2a88x-itx motherboard without any trouble.
This APU overclocks really nicely where I overclocked the GPU to 960MHZ but it really doesn't want to go higher than that no matter how many volts I give it.
Underclocked the CPU to 2.5GHZ because it wasn't getting much work when playing WoW and still only gets around 70-80% useage.
Took the CPU down to 1.125V to lower its power draw and is totally stable at that voltage at 2.5GHZ.
high efficiency, my system is running at about 100w under load and that's probably my horribly inefficient power supply to blame

Plays WoW in leveling areas on Ultra at 1080p at about 22fps with some ddr3-2133 and the GPU overclocked to 960mhz

Cons: Changing voltages doesn't help overclocking this CPU for me, it'll be perfectly stable at 960MHZ GPU, but even at the max voltage it won't get up to the next one at 1020MHZ.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat processor so far!

Pros: Does everything I've asked of it without a hiccup. Great bang for the buck.

Cons: For the money, none.

Other Thoughts: I have this in a HTPC that I use for media and light gaming. So far it's handled everything I've thrown at it with no issues. I underclocked it to 45w, which puts it around 3.1 GHz, but for what I'm using it for performance has not suffered a bit. It runs Skyrim on High settings incredibly smooth.

I would recommend using faster RAM (2133 or higher) and make sure you give it the maximum amount of shared memory your board will allow to squeeze everything you can from the integrated graphics. These APUs are very memory dependent, so don't skimp.

I highly recommend this chip if you're someone who wants good performance on a budget.

5 out of 5 eggsBest CPU

Pros: Very solid CPU. Low heat dissipation, a reasonable price. Easily upgradable software from AMD.

Cons: No problems yet. I've had this one year or more. No overheating but that's not really a con.
