AMD A10-6800K Richland Overclocked Review

x264 Benchmark

Video conversion is an extremely strenuous ordeal for a processor but it’s something that a HTPC may very well be tasked with. As such the x264 Benchmark gives a great insight into how each processor would deal with such a work load. 

Our overclocked APU takes the crown here, removing any competition that was present between the stock 6800K and the i3.

 

wPrime

A popular benchmark for seeing the power of a CPU, wPrime is once again included in our testing. The extra 500MHz to the CPU’s core clock can be seen to make a difference here, with the overclocked system pulling ahead from the stock one. As it does so it also takes the crown for another overclocking victory.
