The editors didn't like

  • Minor improvements over Trinity
  • Weak singlethreaded performance
  • Bottom Line
  • AMD's Richland APUs boost clock speeds and refine power consumption. In particular
  • The AMD A10-6800K is a decent
  • Low-cost alternative to Intel's Core i3/i5 products
  • Much less power-efficient than comparable Intel processors
  • Only a minor performance boost over A10-5800K
  • Performance over Trinity doesn't Justify Pricing
  • Same maximum TDP as earlier FM2 products
  • Perhaps a bit late to the market
  • With laptopgrade parts already being for sale
  • Not a true new technology—just clock bumps
  • "Low" but adequate CPU Performance will not appeal to some
  • None
