AMD FX and Llano performance leaked

Written by


Impressive projections
AMD has leaked some in-house performance projections for its upcoming FX-series processors and Llano A4, A6 and A8 APUs. (No relation to Audi)

The slides were posted by DonanimHaber and they reveal that the Llano should be able to match Intel’s Sandy Bridge processors in terms of overall performance. However, as expected it is somewhat weaker on the CPU side of things, but it manages to make up the difference in graphics performance.

Here is an example. In combined PCMark and 3DMark Vantage tests the most powerful A8 series Llano outpaces the Core i5 2300 and comes close to the Core i7 2600k. However, in terms of CPU power alone, it is still behind the Core i3 2100. In the graphics department, no Intel part is a match for any Llano core.

The 8-core FX series CPU matches the Core i7 2600k in CPU performance and it is about 25 percent faster than the current Phenom II X6 1100T. This is still not enough to threaten Intel’s lead in the high-end, but we are talking about an entirely new architecture, with a lot of room for further evolution and improvement.

Check out the slides here.
