Performance

Hardware:

  • CPU: AMD A8-3850
  • CPU-cooler: Thermaltake Jing
  • Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-A75M-UD2H
  • Graphic card: Depending on the test, HD 6550D / HD 5870
  • Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws 2*2 GB DDR3 2000 CL9
  • Hard drive: Corsair Force GT 120 GB
  • Power supply: Silverstone ST40NF

We haven't really reviewed anything like the Lynx-platform before and don't have a similarly priced Intel setup around, so comparing the performance to anything is rather tricky. In the end we added numbers from earlier CPU- and GPU-reviews for comparison. While this isn't the optimal solution, it should give us a good idea of how the CPU- and GPU-performance of the A8-3850 compares to some other CPUs and graphic cards.

 

CPU Benchmarks

 

AMD A8 3850  A-series APU - Great performance + reasonable power consumption on a single package
 

Because the actual PCmark7-score depends so heavily on the rest of the system instead of just the CPU, we decided to just run the computation-test that's based on the CPU-performance. For comparison there are the numbers ran on Phenom X6 1075T, X4 980 BE and Athlon 640, and from Intel the i5-750 and i7-870. No surprisingly the A8-3850 sits at the bottom end of the scale, but managed to beat the higher clock speed Athlon.

 

Cinebench

Cinebench R10 rendering benchmark and more or less the same competitors and also the same outcome. The A8-3850 is again faster than the 3 GHz Athlon, thanks to its larger L2-cache.

Multi-threaded number crunching and again the results are exactly the same, the A8-3850 is slightly faster than the Athlon, but can't really compete with the higher end CPUs.
