AMD Richland A10-6800K processor analysis

By Peter Chubb - Aug 28, 2013

The new AMD Richland A10-6800K looks a lot like the A10-5800, but has been ramped up to make it a far more impressive processor. Okay, when looking at the AMD Richland A10-6800K specs most of them do seem to be similar to the previous version, so what are those all-important differences?

Below we have an AMD Richland A10-6800K processor analysis video for you to study, where a review unit was tested just to see those differences.

However, we can tell you that the specs include a quad-core with a clock speed of 4.1GHz, as well as integrated HD8570D graphics with a 384 core GPU and a clock speed of 844Mhz.

You will notice this model and its predecessor comes with 100W TDP parts, but the newer model is able to get a faster clock speed. The speeds are not that significant, but just enough to make a real difference. However, if you get one of the latest motherboards then the changes will be more significant.

In the video you will notice that a few experiments have been conducted to see how well the AMD Richland A10-6800K processor performs, and there was found to be no downsides with the new processor, apart from the price that is.
