    Hi everyone. Newcomer on this forum, not a stranger to other boards. Got banned on overclock.net (some moderators there didnt like me, lol) so I`m moving in here. Hope you don`t mind :)

    Got hands on the first benchmark scores on the upcoming AMD Richland A10-6700 with the Radeon HD 8670D :)

    Welcome to the forum. Are these your results or are they from elsewhere? Do you have a link to the source?

    I wish these APU's at least had the GPU power of entry level cards generations ago like the HD6850/HD7770/GTX460.... This is still soooooo slow. Progress is progress i guess.

    Welcome to the club.
    They're nice for laptops. Especially since they still use crap resolutions.

    Kind of a baited post for your very first post.

    It appears to me as if you posted 3 iterations of the same test, eg 3DMark. Which is fine, except the test results aren't going to show a great difference, since they are more or less similar.

    The 2nd to last graph you posted with what looks like German on the bottom, what was the point of that? It doesn't even have the A10-6700 on it.

    Thanks, I`ve seen you at overclock before :)


    I don`t think you understand what I did. I posted results from a swedish review with scores of the HD4000 (Ivy Bridge) and the 7660D (Trinity) to back up the scores from my difference calculations.

    True that the 3 sub scores are from the same benchmark, but I don`t understand why you complain. Should I not post them? It was the only benchmarks I could find, and it shows a real performance gain between Trinity and Richland. The graphic performance of Richland is +25% over Trinity in average for the 3 tests. A 65W APU vs a 100W APU that is...

    Why you guys always see some conspiracy? I don't see anything strange in these results, they are pretty much in line with clock boost 6700 got in both CPU and GPU parts. Nice thing about this model is the fact that you not only get better CPU and GPU performance than 5800K, you get it at 35W less power draw. That's progress.

    Thanks for posting this Cloudfire777! Welcome to the forum.

    Ok I guess I got a little ahead of myself. I apologize. And excuse my rudeness please - welcome to the forums. :)

    But yeah, the charts are a tad redundant, perhaps. The last one doesn't even include the A10-6700.

    If a new reg posted Haswell benchmarks that were 20% higher than IB wouldn't you ask about the source? I would.

    These results are actually expected since we already know the spec of 6700 model.
    For Haswell we only had a few leaked intel roadmaps with supposed clocks,nothing more. And now we have a preview done by THG so no more mysteries there.

    Remember there was already the 65W A10-5700 with similar GPU performance to the A10-5800K.

    It's nice to see AMD's 20-30% GPU improvement claim was true regardless.

    Thank you.

    All the scores are there, except HD4000 in the last one. :)

    Its ok that they are sceptical, although it is an Engineering sample that have been tested, its probably very close to the truth since like you say, the results are in line. Truly a great feat by AMD to get 25% better IGP performance with a 65W APU since its the same architecture as Trinity :)

    Yes that's correct, but CPU performance was lower than 5800K. Now you get better CPU/GPU performance than both 5700 and 5800K,all that in 65W.

    Have we seen improved CPU performance in similar TDP ranges for Richland yet? I know GPU performance yes, but I thought no with CPU.

    The leaked clocks are higher so you'd expect improved CPU performance

    I don't think the 6700 will beat the 5800K in CPU performance, maybe slightly in single-threaded (due to higher turbo) but that's it.

    Looking at that chart what would account for the increased performance? Max clocks are less that 10% higher. Hasn't AMD said there are no architecture changes?

    The clock increase can only account for a small amount of the performance increase (as it is roughly 5% higher on both the CPU [with turbo] and GPU side)--the rest is probably due to switching over to Steamroller from Bulldozer "enhanced Piledriver". It's nice to see AMD pushing hard in the budget market. This brings it to roughly GT640 levels, assuming the benchmark scores will scale with the framerate, which is pretty acceptable for budget gaming (assuming the price is around $130).

    they updated the IMC to support 2133Mhz memories...so, maybe it got improved

    i can't see the new turbo improving that much

    Richland is using Steamroller cores?

    I think they've said there are some small (on the order of 2-3%) IPC improvements and a rearranged GPU layout which could contribute to the graphics improvements.

    then this does bode well for the 6800k...

    Richland = Piledriver 2.0 with enhanced IMC. Its an improvement on the current architecture. AMD is slowly optimizing the once very slow and power hungry dulldozer. Nice to see them make good improvements!
