Quoted from AMD A10-7850K Reviews:
Check out these quotes from AMD A10-7850K reviews & previews
"AMD’s Kaveri APUs demonstrate significant GPU performance improvements from faster memory speeds. Anyone contemplating an A10 series AMD Kaveri APU should strongly consider 2133MHz memory or above, anyone looking to the A8 series APUs should start from 1866MHz. The main beneficiary of faster memory is gaming – so if you’re going to be gaming on a Kaveri APU fast memory is a must."
"One major advantage of Kaveri – and most of AMD’s products – is that overclocking is completely opened up and free to use. We were able to take our sample to 4.7 GHz quite easily with non-overclocking motherboards. The GPU overclock was even more impressive, at 1020 MHz. The fact that you can get this kind of speed without paying a premium should be a major point of consideration for potential users. This kind of overclock almost certainly makes up for the lack of pure clock performance compared to the competition. Results vary though, so keep that in mind."
"Our 4.7 GHz overclock yielded performance increases between 13-17% depending on the test being performed. In some cases, this allowed Kaveri to outperform the Core i3 where it would fall behind at base speed (particularly in 3ds Max and Cinebench). In most cases, the 7850K actually outperforms Core i3 while running at stock speed, so that extra 15% is just gravy on top."
"If you have been looking for how overclocking all three main components of a Kaveri APU system – CPU, GPU, and Memory – affects performance, here you go. We saw some nice performance increases across the board, ranging from 13% to 20% depending on the scenario. The overclock allowed us to get playable performance at 1080p in some games, while others could use some more tweaking."
"AMD compares its new processor to the Intel Core i5 4670K (even if the Core i5 4570 is a fairer match), and if you want to assemble an affordable PC without dedicated graphics card, then the Kaveri is indeed the best choice. It's fast enough for gaming, and your system will be prepared for the (hopeful) future of more GPU-accelerated software. If you plan on buying a separate graphics card, we would recommend the Core i5."
