AMD A8-3850 Llano APU Review



The integrated GPU for the A8-3850 is the Radeon HD 6550D. The APU can be overclocked not only for the CPU side but for the integrated graphics as well, for a performance boost. To see if this was indeed true, I ran through a couple of games that can be played on the HD 6550D integrated graphics in low resolutions.The graphics clock was moved from the stock of 600MHz to the maximum stable I could reach of 1000MHz and each game was retested to verify that the increase in performance was relevant.


Testing Setup: AMD Socket FM1




AvP Settings:

  • 0xAA
  • 0xAF
  • SSAO = Off
  • Texture Quality = Low
  • Hardware Tesselation = Off
  • Advanced Shadow Sampling = Off




Batman Arkham Asylum Settings:

  • 0xAA in CP
  • 0xAF in CP
  • Global settings = Low
  • Ambient Occlusion = Off




While playing each of these games, the eye candy was turned down but the games were playable up to 1680 x 1050 with no issues or noticable performance lag.
