AMD A8-3850

13 Reasons why AMD A8-3850 is better

than the average

1.A shade faster CPU clock speed
4 x 2.9GHzvs 4.7 x 2.3GHz (the average)
vs 8 x 8GHz (best: AMD Opteron 6220)
2.Clearly higher ram speed
1866MHzvs 1416MHz (the average)
vs 2873MHz (best: Samsung Exynos 7420)
It can support faster memory, which will give quicker system performance.
3.Clearly faster GPU clock speed
600MHzvs 508MHz (the average)
vs 1300MHz (best: Intel Core i7-4770R)
The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.
4.Appreciably bigger L1 cache
512KBvs 271KB (the average)
vs 1536KB (best: AMD Opteron 6180 SE)
A larger L1 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
5.Considerably bigger L2 cache
4MBvs 2MB (the average)
vs 16MB (best: AMD Opteron 6380)
A larger L2 cache results in faster CPU and system-wide performance.
6.Noticeably more L2 cache per core
1MB/corevs 0MB/core (the average)
vs 2.5MB/core (best: Intel Core i5-4200Y)
More data can be stored in the L2 cache for access by each core of the CPU.
7.Slightly newer version of DirectX
11vs 11 (the average)
vs 12 (best: AMD A10-7870K)
DirectX is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.
8.Considerably newer version of OpenGL
4.1vs 3.7 (the average)
vs 4.5 (best: AMD A10-7860K)
OpenGL is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.
9.Somewhat newer version of OpenCL
1.2vs 1.2 (the average)
vs 2 (best: Intel Xeon E3-1275 v5)
Some applications use OpenCL to utilise the power of the graphics processing unit (GPU) for non-graphical computing. Newer versions introduce more functionality and better performance.
10.Modestly higher Cinebench 10 result
12137vs 12049 (the average)
vs 38726 (best: Intel Core i7-4960X)
This benchmark measures the performance of the CPU using multiple threads.
11.Distinctly more displays supported
3vs 3 (the average)
vs 4 (best: AMD A10-5800K)
Using multiple displays you can create a larger work space, making it easier to work across multiple applications.
12.Clearly lower power consumption whilst under peak load
123Wvs 146W (the average)
vs 89W (best: Intel Core i5-3330)
13.Explicitly lower power consumption whilst idle
62.4Wvs 71.3W (the average)
vs 30W (best: Intel Core i5-3330)
