In practice, the processor part (index 60) is around 7.7% down on the A8-3850's processor performance. Although it does a little better than the Pentium G620 (index 56), it's still a long way behind the Core i3 2100 though priced at more or less the same level. The graphics is around 10% down on the A8, which limits even further the possibility of gaming with recent titles.

- Impressive absolute performance of integrated graphics
- Higher power consumption than Intel solutions
- A faster CPU is required
A great step forward has been made on the APU side with a much improved graphics part. Unfortunately, there still isn't enough graphics muscle to allow you to dispense with a graphics card for gaming. Pure processor performance is also a good deal down on what's on offer from the competition.
