AMD Llano A8-3870K APU Review

thumbs amdh e 2cp AMD Llano A8 3870K APU Review

With AMDs’ Llano and Bulldozer line releasing within 8 months of each other it was only a matter of time before we saw them merge.  The main complaint about Llano was the inability to overclock anything.  Well now we see 2 unlocked versions come into the market: the A8-3870k and the A6-3670k.  With AMDs rich heritage in overclocking and GPUs what kind of performance can we expect out of these?  Lets first take a look at the new line desktop Llano APUs.

# of Cores CPU Speed (Ghz) TDP Radeon Cores Cache
A8-3870K 4 3.0 100 400 4MB L2
A8-3820 4 2.5 65 400 4Mb L2
A6-3670K 4 2.7 100 320 4MB L2
A6-3620 4 2.2 65 320 4Mb L2
A4-3420 2 2.8 65 160 1MB L2

This new line still features Dx11 and AMDs Steady Video feature through the Vision Engine.  The A8-3870K features a 6550D with 600Mhz base clock speed which can be Crossfired with a discrete card for even more power.  We’ll look into the amount of flexibility the unlocking of this chip gives us.
