Introduction

Recently there has been a big push away from the entry-level discrete graphics card toward on-chip GPUs. At the forefront of this push is AMD, first with their Llano APUs and now with the recently released Trinity series. These new chips offer solid CPU performance with a surprisingly powerful GPU built-in. You can check out our A10-5800k review for a full in-depth analysis of the new architecture in Trinity and its benefits over the previous generation.

    I have this apu. I am a little confused about the electric power consumption.
    Could you please let me know how much power it will consume while using the apu at 50% ?
    It’s max TDP is 100W. Isn’t it bad compairing intel chips ?
