Fruit of the Fusion strategy that was developed on AMD's purchase of ATI, the AMD A-Series APUs combine a standard CPU and graphics part on the same chip. Reserved for netbooks and nettops until now, the AMD APUs are now targeting the entry level desktop segment. We wanted to see if they gave the sort of performance to compete with the Intel Sandy Bridges, which are designed on the same principle. From a technical point of view, the A8-3850 has four cores clocked at 2.9 GHz. There's no Turbo feature, nor any equivalent to Intel's Hyper-Threading technology. The chip has been designed for socket FM1, which is different to socket AM3, used up until now for AMD processors. There has been very little change (L2 cache doubled) to the architecture used on the Athlon II X4 600 and it isn't surprising to see almost identical performance to the X4 635 (also 2.9 GHz) here. In comparison to Intel, if we limit ourselves to the APU offer (which is to say CPUs with an integrated graphics circuit) the A8-3850 is a good deal down on the Pentium G6950, which is a good deal cheaper, as well as the Core i3 2100. The Core i3 2100 has an average index of 76, while the AMD A8 is at 65.
