AMD A10-6800K Richland Overclocked Review

Power Consumption at the Wall

We use a mains power meter to measure what's being taken from the wall by our system. It's clear to see that overclocking the system has resulted in more power being used in all scenarios, from idle to heavy CPU stress tests.

 

Temperatures

Even with the two-tower 'D14 cooler running at a constant 12v we're still seeing over 80ºC when using OCCT's stress test, though the temperatures drops to below 60ºC when playing back HD movies. It was clear from the get go that the stock cooler would not have been able to withstand the extra volts needed for the overclocks.

Something that is easily noticeable is games with high res textures don't see a large boost in performance(10-15%), While older games with less complicated textures are seeing massive 30-50% increases. I am inclined to believe with the evidence shown that there is too much Space + Time between the CPU and Ram. Kaveri just got a lot more exciting xD

Glad the OC + Stock reviews ended up happening in this matter, It really shows how big of a hit you are taking when you do not overclock.Quote

Considerng Richland was more of a tweak off of Trinity; these results show just how great APUs can be in the future.Quote
