    Default AMD A10-5800K Performance On Ubuntu Linux

    Phoronix: AMD A10-5800K Performance On Ubuntu Linux

    Continuing on from last week's initial benchmarks of the AMD A10-5800K Trinity APU on Linux, the Trinity memory performance testing, and then more benchmarks of the Radeon HD 7660D integrated graphics, here is the large Ubuntu Linux comparison of the AMD A10-5800K compared to the previous-generation AMD A8 Llano APU, an AMD FX-Series Bulldozer, and several Intel Core i3/i5/i7 CPUs from the Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge families.

    So it's pretty competitive with the entry level from intel's previous generation. In all fairness, Ivy Bridge isn't much faster than Sandy Bridge in CPU performance. Though the CPU itself might be less power hungry in IB.

    "...(at least) better than Sandy Bridge / i3" it keeps echoing...

    I'm pretty disappointed with these results but I've noticed trinity is tremendously impacted by memory frequencies, almost too much, so I wonder how different the tests would be with the most optimal RAM frequency. With most other systems, different ram speeds might get another few seconds out of encoding or another few FPS in a game, but with trinity it can be the difference between it being as bad as i3 or better than i5.

    What I also think is weird is how little of a difference overclocking makes. Overclocking doesn't seem worth it considering how much more heat and power is used in turn.

    I'm not. The results are that a $130 AMD processor is performing in the same range as a $200 Intel processor, and as it's on the APU side of things honestly it's performing where it should be for this generation, and these results actually speak rather well for where Vishera will be landing. What's important is that Trinity is faster than Llano and competing with i3s and i5s, thus proving that the bulldozer design was the right move for those who were doubting. Steamroller should be where AMD is competitive or better in the high end in most areas as opposed to being a mixed bag because it's removing the scheduler bottleneck that was creating a massive hit to the performance.

    Wishful thinking. It's only competing with i3's that are dual-cores with hyperthreading and a low-power version of the i5, clocked 1.3GHz below A10-5800K. On top of this, both are part of intel's previous generation.
