AMD A8-3870K Llano APU Linux Overclocking
Phoronix: AMD A8-3870K Llano APU Linux Overclocking
Following the interest yesterday from the AMD A8-3870K graphics testing even though this new Llano APU has the same Radeon HD 6550D integrated graphics as the original A8-3850 APU, here's some more information and numbers from the week-old AMD A8-3870K when running the desktop AMD APU under Ubuntu Linux and attempting to overclock this week-old Llano APU.
Bulldozer needs some work.
It is nice to see Bulldozer actually doing well in a couple of tests. In the end though it needs a significant boost in performance. I still think some of the concepts in bull dozer are valid but they really need to work on integer execution. Hopefully by the time it is integrated into Fusion this will be corrected.

What is the word on the GPU over clock.
For many of us that is a primary reason to go with this chip.
