AMD A8-3870K Black Edition & Hybrid Crossfire Review
Published: 25th May 2012 | Source: AMD | Price: £90 |
PC Mark Vantage
Again the A8-3870K is surprisingly capable when compared to the 8 Core FX8150. Of course the Intel stuff is streets ahead, but the Llano handles itself well. Especially impressive is the iGPU in the gaming test, considering how little extra performance we gain from the Hybrid-Crossfire.
PC Mark 7
In the more up-to-date PC Mark 7 the A8 scales nicely and shows that for a budget desktop environment it's more than capable of punching above its weight.

Got my iGPU at 800Mhz from the stock 600MHz and most games play in 1080p with medium detail.
Also overclocked my HyperX Blu 1600Mhz to 1866Mhz so i get even better performance.
I would recommend this for anyone who likes some light gaming,Quote
i was an amd fan, until that chip came out, now i'm leaning towards an intel build for the first time in over a decadeQuote
they just need to get the high end sorted out and give intel some serious competition again.Quote
