  • AMD Stock A10 5800K faster than i7s. Does Intel Own PassMark?

    I got a CPU Mark of 7840 on a stock A10 5800K. So why does this chip, which is wicked fast, sit at #205 on the list below the A8? Playing WOW with this and the 7660D averaging 70-90 FPS with high settings! Again, I repeat, 70-90 FPS with INTEGRATED Video ONLY! This CPU could bring back the gold for AMD! THIS APU IS FASSSSSSSST! Intel should be Very worried!!!

    For this to be ranked at #205, I wonder, does Intel own PassMark?

    I assume you are being sarcastic.

    70 FPS in WoW isn't exactly class leading performance. You realize that WoW is a 8 year old game. So the required hardware specs to play it are very low.

    Also the CPU charts don't measure video card performance. So it really doesn't matter how good the integrated video is, for a CPU benchmark.

    I agree however, if play games and can't afford a separate video card, then then A10 is a good choice.

    > Intel should be Very worried!!!

    Yes, so worried that Intel charge 5 times the price of AMD for their best desktop CPUs

      Sarcasm....just a bit...I apologize....I can't help it, I always root for the little guy...you have to agree, if Intel wins this CPU battle we will be paying $1000 for an i3.

      Yes, WOW is an 8 year old game but I challenge anyone to get the same numbers with HD4000 (Intel's crappy integrated solution) ....lol...and the A10 system I built it on cost less than $700.00!

      Intel has become too complacent with their weak architecture, just like they did before when AMD stole their performance crown from crappy boat anchor the Pentium!

      If I toss a 570 or a 7850 GPU ($200 or $169 respectivly) in this baby, it will SCREAM!

        We have another chart that looks at CPU value.
        http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu_value_available.html

        AMD is offering good value CPUs. Just not the most powerful, nor the most efficient in terms of electrical power usage.

          There are stats in cpu benchmarking where the amd chips have never passed intel, raw number crunching etc.

          I was AMD for YEARS, my i7-3820 is my first intel chip in more than 15 years. I dont think im going back to amd. The cache memory alone sold me.
