AMD A10-7850K Review

AMD A10-7850K is the latest processor to be released by the AMD team and it’s probably the most interesting chip since the release of the Bulldozer FX. AMD is the champion in the world of GPUs and we would expect this APU to be one of the best to be released in recent history. However, you might dismiss its ability by checking on the performance metrics at first. Unfortunately or fortunately, there is more to this beast than meets the eye.



The AMD A10-7850K, also referred to as Kaveri, was expected to surpass its predecessor, the A10-6800K, in terms of performance. It is because AMD are using Steamroller, a new update in the Bulldozer CPU architecture. Before Steamroller came to being, dual core modules shared many resources and this increased their performance but literally performed poorly when on their own. Steamroller ensures that each core has tons of resources and this makes them perform better when being used in single threading. The AMD A10-7850K comes with 4 cores and 2 steamroller modules but it seems it doesn’t perform better compared to the A10-6800K.



In the graphics department, we already know that this is where AMD capitalizes on and with the AMD A10-7850K, they didn’t disappoint. As usual, AMD used their Graphics Core Next architecture which is their best and only used for high end graphics cards. With a bit of over clocking, you are guaranteed to get an extra 36% in terms of gaming performance as compared to previous APUs. AMD A10-7850K is the only APU on the market that can be used without a discrete card and still offer you a nice gaming experience with decent speeds. I can’t promise you it will work at the highest settings or resolutions but it’s something possible.



I believe, we will have better things in the near future if the AMD A10-7850K is to be trusted on trendsetting. No other APU right now is compatible with the twin tech of HAS except the AMD A10-7850K. It’s also the only one completely compatible with a technology called Mantel. With the two technologies, you should be expecting high performance from the next generation AMD APUs.



For now, the AMD A10-7850K is still way below the gaming standards set by Intel chips. However, with the new Mantle beta, we can see some hope of catching up with Intel or even doing better in the near future. With Battlefield 4 which is Mantle enabled, the performance of the APU could increase significantly. It could also reduce the performance difference with i5 4570 and R 9 290 by more than 50%. The difference right now on Standard DirectX mode is around 44% which would reduce to 20% with the help of the Mantle API.



This APU is still lagging behind AMD’s own FX line of CPUs. Although the difference might seem small, it’s still important to consider its existence. In this regard, you wouldn’t want to use this as a full gaming rig. The difference in price between the AMD A10-7850K and i5 4570 is considerably small and even smaller between it and the 8 core FX-8350.



I would recommend this to someone looking for a good gaming experience on a low cost PC, it will be totally worth it.

  • The Good :
    Best integrated GPU performance on any platform today, Supports HSA and Mantle API
  • The Bad :
    Still below Intel cores’ performance
Our score:
4 / 5
