AMD Kaveri Mobile APU Preview – FX-7600P with Radeon R7 Graphics

Jump To:

AMD FX-7600P Kaveri Performance


In 3DMark11 we found scores of an overall score of P2147 with the default test preset. The Graphics score was 2116, the physics score was 2780 and the combined score was 1744.


n the latest build of 3DMark we found scores of 1285 in Fire Strike with the AMD FX-7600P with Radeon R7 graphics.  This is a pretty damn good score, but slightly slower than the flagship Intel Core i7-4770R processor with Intel Iris Pro Graphics 5200 as it scored 1387 in Fire Strike.


Moving along to Cinebench R11.5 we found the AMD FX-7600P Kaveri APU scored 31.28 FPS on the OpenGL benchmark, 2.47 points on the multi-core CPU test and 0.79 points on the single CPU test.


A quick look at the memory performance showed just shy of 11 GB/s of bandwidth. This sounds a little low for a dual channel memory kit running at 18663MHz with CL13 memory timings, but that is what it scored.


In Sandra Processor Arithmetic the aggregate native performance score was 33.35 GOPS.


The Sandra Processor Multi-Media aggregate performance score was 61.38 MPix/s.


The Sandra Processor Cryptography  bandwidth results showed the AMD Kaveri APU powered notebook was capable of 1.64GB/s.


We ran the SunSpider 1.0.2 JavaScript Benchmark on Google Chrome 34 and received a score of 253.3ms. The Intel Bay Trail-M NUC finished at 694.0ms, so you can see a big difference between a low-end and high-end processor when it comes to JavaScript performance.


In the Encryption Algorithm Benchmark that comes inside TrueCrypt we found an AES mean score of 1.8 GB/s.


A quick run of CrystalDiskMark v3.0.3 64-bit showed the sequential read speed at 715 MB/s and the write speed at 525.3 MB/s! The Random 4K read speed was 24.03MB/s and the 4K random write speed was 53.79MB/s. Not bad scores from the Samsung XP941 256GB M.2 PCIe SSD.


The PCMark 8 Home Accelerated 3.0 benchmark score came in at 2974 with the video playback above 30FPS for the video chat and our casual gaming score was at 29 FPS.


The PCMark 8 Work Accelerated 2.0 benchmark score was 4020 with the video chat playback being 30.0FPS once again.


The final PCMark 8 benchmark that we ran was Creative Accelerated where we got an overall score of 3448. The video chat playback score came in for a third time at 30.0 FPS, so all three PCMark 8 tests that we ran had identical results there. The gaming test on this benchmark was much tougher as the gaming part one test had us at 13.3 FPS and part 2 was at 6.4 FPS.

Let’s take a look at some game performance results:

    What are the laptop model available with AMD FX-7600P , can any one help please..

  • AMD — Come Clean

    AMD FX Mobile line-up was their goal to manipulate their compute users with their all new compute strategy which does not work on thinner, lighter and constantly reliable laptops Razor and Asus started to sell. AMD FX Mobile Compute system is designed to only give you more performance and power under thicker laptops and if AMD FX mobile APU was installed on 21mm thinner and lighter laptop, it would not let you spend hours and hours of having lots of fun on your computer. A thinner and lighter laptop that is blazy faster and stronger for possibly 30 hours a day on a laptop has powerhouse Intel core i7 quad core processor with ultrafast processor graphics with 16 GB lightning DDR3 SDRAM and Nvidia GeForce GTX 860M 2 GB which is much cooler thanks to their new hidden water cooler technology. A powerful laptop should not have AMD because AMD FX does not allow laptops to be heat free and faster at all. AMD should come clean and people deserve faster and stronger MacBook class thinner, lighter and powerful laptop which does not cause any fire, noise if it was being used for more than 30 hours a day without any problems. I want to make a phone call on my computer and it is going to use a lot of CPU power to do that. AMD was never allowing cooler and powerful thinner and lighter laptops at all. Only Intel + Nvidia allows that to happen.
    I want AMD to be sued for $2,000,000 dollars as soon as possible because they FX Mobile processor is full of compute tech that blocks powerful, lightning fast thinner and lighter laptop market for everybody.
    Stop AMD Now, if you want faster, cooler thinner and lighter laptop, go with Asus NX500 with 4K UHD so you have lots of fun without any problems.

      Yeh, I hate those 30 hr days…

      • love-intel

        No, Intel and Nvidia style thin and constantly fast laptops work for hours and hours no matter what you do.

        • christianh

          Intel and nVidia don’t make laptops.. With monopolist lovers running around it allows Intel to flood the market with 800 different chips and “force” OEMs to stick to one chipset…

          And then there are the “bribes…”

        • thin and light laptops

          No, Intel and Nvidia processors and graphics chips are designed for thinner, lighter and consistently reliable touch laptops OEM’s are making like Asus, Razor blade and some other laptop makers in future. AMD does not have expertise in making their APU’s and GPU’s work constantly fast on thinner and lighter laptops. If you love to spend more time on your thinner and light laptop, you need to look for powerful, high performance thin and speedy laptop like Asus NX500 which comes with powerful Intel core i7 and Nvidia GeForce GTX 850M because AMD is not going to have a processor designed for thin and ultra-powerful laptops that is 40-130% faster than bulky laptops.
          In 21st century compute era, a laptop is thinner and lightweight without any computer malfunctions and slow cpu and gpu performance if it was being used for longer periods of time. It is 40% more powerful on a thinner design than a thicker laptop running AMD FX APU. A thinner laptop comes with Intel Core i7 with Iris pro graphics which can be as much faster as if a customer want’s it to be and Nvidia GeForce GTX 850M which is the most powerful GPU for everybody. Gamers can look forward to GeForce GTX 870M 6 GB for ultra-fast gaming and the laptop has 4K UHD 13 or 15 inch display.
          Razor blade, and Asus deserves that award while any laptop running AMD APU will not get that award.
          21st century lightweight and ultra-powerful, reliable laptops are the future tech trends.
          AMD cannot be trusted with lightning thin and light laptops anymore.

          “The power consumption of the GeForce GTX 870M should be similar to the the GTX 780M, leading to a TDP of at least 100 W. Therefore, only large desktop replacements can handle the power demands of a GTX 870M.”

          Yup. All AMD needs to do now is start making huge laptops with 100 watt GPUs in them. That will keep them nice and cool, just like those nVidia / Intel laptops.

          That is simply NOT true. It cannot last for 30 hours without a few charges.

          I have a 15.6″ ASUS R505C laptop with a Intel Core i5-3337U and a GeForce GT 740M. I use it as a work computer and for light compute use (word documents, Excel, YouTube, etc). It can only last a continuous usage of about 5 – 6 hours.

          4K on a laptop? 2015+??
          Laptop CPU + GPU =/= High-end desktop CPU + GPU performance. Buy a laptop now and keep it, wait until 4K becomes mainstream? Do you know how fast technology is advancing? A top-of-the-line laptop will be mid level in a few years.

          Guess what, this is coming from someone with a background in Electrical and Computer Engineering.

          Before you start spreading false information on the web, especially here on Legit Reviews, back it up with REAL information and/or data.

      Thinner things tend to break easier. The only advantage of a thin laptop is if it was so thin you can slide it under a door. Or fold it up like a piece of paper and put it in your pocket. Hell if it gets any thinner it would just disappear. So where do consumers draw the line for their demands that one day can’t be supplied because they are asking for too much? 4k is also pointless on a laptop. Just wastes power for a screen resolution you can’t notice because the screen is too small.

      • true answer

        Thinner things do not break easier if you really take good care of your laptop, you can look for colorful carrying case which is built into your laptop with component protector just like you have on your smartphone or tablet. Consumers draw their line for their demands on thinner, lighter, constantly fast and powerful 4K laptops that are designed for people who love to spend a lot of time on their devices without any reliability and leakage issues. 4K is not pointless on a laptop because we care about the future of using your laptop in newer innovative ways including new laptop usage patterns being introduced in late 2010s. If you buy a 4K laptop which has medium scaling level on your display, you get to have a lot of fun using your laptop, your laptop would be able to play 4K content once it comes out around 2015 and it is future ready device. You will notice brighter and stronger picture quality for futureristic fun tasks that you plan to do in future and other new innovations that never came out yet as of now. You can also get real picture quality which is 4 times better than your HDTV in your home. Because you have more graphics horsepower built in with Nvidia GeForce GTX 850M 4GB, you would never have to suffer from any graphics rendering issues again at all.

          You can’t do 4k on a laptop and expect anything playable on any GPU. I run about 125% of 4k on my desktop, and it takes at least an r9 290 to get acceptable framerates in anything.

          nVidia’s GTX 870m is just a re-branded version of their 7xxm series, btw. They could barely do 2560×1600, let alone 4k.

      What a brilliant consumer we have here.

      You want to *sue* a company for not making a product that you want?

      You’re comparing several thousand dollar laptops that very few people buy / can afford with AMD’s high performance / $ chips, and you’re telling me that that’s where they should be focusing their efforts? Are you completely out of your mind?

  • Steve Smith

    Seems strange that these support 2133mhz ram, yet only run 1866 in their test setup.

    • Cryio

      Man, it’s November and I still haven’t seen one 7600P Kaveri laptop anywhere.

  • vision33r

    Every AMD notebook out is craptastic. 1366×768 resolution even on a 15.6, with a thick chasis, awful trackpad, and bouncy keyboard. If AMD is serious to contend, atleast put some guidelines out to enforce some higher standards.

    • kodey leach

      my notebook has a 1080p screen .-. and im running amd even though i hte it and would sell it now if i could get a 7600p with a daul graphic setup …

  • 32Devlin1

    Yea i would have like to seen some Mantle scores but like the guy said he only got 3 to 4 hours tops to do these test so he cramed as many test as he could in that time,I think he did really good just to get all those test done in that time line.

  • funkydmunky

    So why would you bench a GCN APU in BF4 and not use Mantle?

    • Puppet H

      I’m guessing they didn’t apply the updates.
