AMD Kaveri A8-7600 and A10-7800 APU Review
MAXON; CINEBENCH R15:
MAXON CINEBENCH Release 15 is an advanced hardware testing suite that assesses a computer’s performance capabilities. CINEBENCH is based on the same powerful technology as MAXON’s award-winning animation software CINEMA 4D, which is used extensively by studios and production houses worldwide for 3D content creation. MAXON software has been used in blockbuster movies such as Iron Man 3, Oblivion, Life of Pi or Prometheus and many more.
The new version of CINEBENCH includes the ability to more accurately test the industrys latest hardware, including systems with up to 64 processor threads, and the testing environment better reflects the expectations of todays production demands. A more streamlined interface makes testing systems and reading results incredibly straightforward. Again, higher Frames/Second and point score equal better performance.
Cinebench R15 was able to put a 100% load across all the cores on all of the processors, which makes this a great benchmark to look at multi-core platforms.
Benchmark Results: When it comes to OpenGL graphics performance the AMD A10-7800 and AMD A8-7600 did great and performed better than even the Intel Core i7-4790K Devil’s Canyon Processor! So, when it comes to OpenGL performance on socketed desktop processors the 4th Gen Kaveri APUs by AMD are dominating things. For those that are wondering, the Intel Core i7 2700K with Intel HD 3000 graphics isn’t supported on the OpenGL benchmark.
Benchmark Results: The performance gap between the AMD A10-7800 and A8-7600 is very small as both score right around 300 points on all cores and 90 with just a single core running the render test. The Intel Pentium G3258 scores an impressive 127 points in the single processor test thanks to the Haswell CPU architecture it uses.
