AMD Trinity A10-5800K Review
OverviewHardware: CPU & Motherboards
WHAT WE LIKED:Great priced mainstream processor. On-die GPU, good graphics/video and processing performance. Decent gaming performance for the price.
WHAT WE DISLIKED:Although Piledriver has a much better instruction set, vanilla processing performance is only slightly better than Llano.
