CINEBENCH is a real-world cross platform test suite that evaluates your computer’s CPU performance. Cinebench R15 is a totally free utility and is available for download here.
Firstly, we haven’t had any new motherboards in over the past few months that weren’t Z97, or X99 which is even more overkill, so our graphs aren’t great comparisons. However, we can see the A10-7850K, which is identical to the Athlon X4 860K, has modest CPU performance. The overclocked A10-7850K sits somewhere inbetween an overclocked Pentium G3258 and a Haswell Core i3.
The SiSoft Sandra Dhrystone and Whetstone benchmarks are widely used measures of compute power and performance for a wide array of real world usage scenarios. You can find out more details on these tests here or download SiSoft Sandra here.
Overclocking helps the performance figures quite a lot, against an i7 4770K isn’t a fair comparison but these results are all we have.
wPrime is a leading multithreaded benchmark for x86 processors that tests your processor performance by calculating square roots with a recursive call of Newton’s method for estimating functions. wPrime is a free utility that is available for download here.
WPrime reveals some promising results for the A10-7850K, the scaling with overclocking is good too.
