AMD Godavari APU Lineup Leaked

AMD’s upcoming Godavari APU lineup has been leaked by VR-Zone ahead of its launch in summer, this year. The new Godavari APU which are also known to be part of the Kaveri-Refresh platform which is aimed to re-fresh the current Kaveri APUs with the new 8000 series branding will be featured across 12 new processors utilizing the x86 Steamroller core and GCN graphics architecture.

First of all, being simply known as the Kaveri-Refresh platform, Godavari will feature the same architectural enhancements as Kaveri with the same CPU and GPU cores. We are talking about x86 Steamroller and GCN here which have already been fused on the current AMD A-7000 Series offerings. Godavari will retain the maximum four x86 core and 512 stream processor design and will be available in several variants as a part to refresh the current A-Series lineup. AMD is going to use the latest 8000 series branding for the new chips and will stick to the FM2+ platform supporting DDR3 memory at 2133 MHz. The current motherboards will be able to support the new chips without any problems with new BIOS updates rolling out prior to launch.

As for performance and clock speeds, the clock speeds will obviously get a slight bump since that is what’s the refresh is all about. The chips will retain their TDPs. As for the performance, it will be anywhere from 5-15% better than the current Kaveri APUs due to better driver support and improved clock speeds. Other details are not known at the moment but AMD will have an official announcement made during the same time as 2015’s Computex event. Aside from Godavari, the main announcement coming from AMD this year will be the new AMD Radeon graphics cards which will deliver insanely huge performance increases over the current Radeon generation of cards.

In total, AMD is going to launch 12 new APUs, 10 of which are part of the A-Series family while two are part of the Athlon series family. The specifications of some chips are listed below while full specifications can be found in the table provided at the end of this article:

As expected, the new product is built on the 28-nm AMD Steamroller microarchitecture, and the integrated graphics adapter of the AMD Radeon R7 Graphics series is based on the AMD GCN microarchitecture. The new product has 12 computing cores: 4 processor (3.7 / 4.1 GHz) and 8 graphics (512 stream processors, 856 MHz).

If we compare the clock speeds of APU AMD A10-8850K with AMD A10-7850K, we will see only an increase of 100 MHz in the dynamic speed of processor cores and 136 MHz in the frequency of graphics cores. Of course, these are only preliminary figures, which may be changed in the final version. In general, we are promised a 10-15% increase in performance levels while maintaining TDP at around 95 W.

In addition to the AMD A10-8850K, the AMD Godavari series includes at least 11 more models: A10-8750, A8-8650K, A8-8650, A6-8550K, Athlon X4 870K and Athlon X4 850 for the mainstream consumer market, as well as A10 Pro-8850B, A10 Pro-8750B, A8 Pro-8650B, A6 Pro-8550B and A4 Pro-8350B for the business segment. All of them are designed for the Socket FM2+ platform and are compatible with existing motherboards after updating the BIOS. The debut of new products is expected in June or July 2015.

processors amd a10 specifications — Dudom

Today we have another “pass-through” testing on our agenda, connected primarily with a change in test methods, and not with the release of new processors. Moreover, the topic will be a platform where things are not going well with the release of new models, despite all its attractive sides: it has been more than a year since the A10-7850K appeared, and it continues to be the most powerful solution in the line. Moreover, no significant change in the situation is planned in the near future. Around the middle of the year, the A10-8850K should appear, but apart from a very slight increase in clock frequencies, nothing is expected from it (as well as from other models of the updated line). Thus, it makes no sense to specifically wait for the appearance of Kaveri Refresh processors, and something more interesting may appear only next year (and within a completely new platform, most likely completely incompatible with today’s one). In general, if there is a need to purchase something, it can be done now. Moreover, it is not even necessary to choose Kaveri — although the shipment of processors based on the previous architecture has already been stopped, they are still found in the distribution network, moreover, at more attractive prices than modern models. There is only one question: is the economy reasonable? And do you need a top model? But it is impossible to find out without tests, so now we will start with them.

A10-6800K and A10-7850K at the end of last year and came to the conclusion that these models are approximately equivalent in performance, but the first one is cheaper. However, updating the software in the new version of the methodology may well lead to the fact that the alignment will change — this is what we will check. At the same time, adding the A10-7800 to the test subjects: it is a little more economical and a little slower than the top model, which is interesting. Note that the 7800 is actually the only significant expansion of the range of processors for FM2+ in 2014: earlier desktop A10s based on Kaveri did not fit into a TDP of 65 W or less. If we consider work with a heat pack reduced to 45 W (which may be relevant for a compact solution), the situation is even aggravated by the fact that AMD previously released only a couple of suitable models for FM2, which were not so easy to purchase. Now the problem is gone. And the only question is what will be the performance loss. Especially against the background of top models, which obviously “do not fit” into small Mini-ITX cases due to a “serious” heat pack.

Processor Intel Core i7-5500U
Kernel name Broadwell
Production technology 14 nm
Core clock std/max, GHz 2. 4/3.0
Number of compute cores/threads 2/4
L1 cache (total), I/D, KB 64/64

Who do these processors compare to? Such a question is always relevant at the beginning of the testing cycle — the base of already obtained test results is too small. Therefore, by a strong-willed decision, we did not look for competitors «on the forehead», but took the numbers obtained when testing the Core i7-5500U. It is clear that the model is ultrabook, though. Although many people these days are concerned about the direct comparison of laptop and desktop performance, it is interesting to look for a direct answer to it.

Test methodology

To evaluate performance, we used our performance measurement methodology using iXBT Application Benchmark 2015 and iXBT Game Benchmark 2015. We normalized all test results in the first benchmark against the results of the reference system, which this year will be the same for laptops , and for all other computers, which is designed to make it easier for readers to compare and choose:

Processor Intel Core i5-3317U
Chipset Intel HM77 Express
Memory 4 GB DDR3-1600 (dual channel)
Graphics subsystem Intel HD Graphics 4000
Accumulator SSD 128 GB Crucial M4-CT128M4SSD1
Operating system Windows 8 (64-bit)
Intel graphics driver version

iXBT Application Benchmark 2015

Despite the fact that these applications load processors «to the full», including the video core, the ultrabook Broadwell turned out to be not much worse than AMD desktop APUs — in fact, the level of performance it demonstrates is A10 -6800K and A10-7800 in «45W mode» are the same. But in normal mode, the A10-7800 is noticeably faster, but the A10-7850K outperforms it quite a bit, which makes it not the best choice for today.

Here, the top AMD APUs are completely behind the Core i7-5500U, which can only be called a mockery ? The distribution of places among them almost does not change. Unless the A10-6800K managed to keep up with the A10-7800 with a “squeezed” heat pack, but if this is not necessary, then the latter is preferable in new software versions.

Photo manipulation is similar to video processing. True, the performance requirements on the part of the user are lower here, since the slowness of the computer (if any) interferes less — the workflows themselves are shorter.

Adobe Illustrator cheerfully changes version numbers, but the software algorithms themselves seem to be the same as 10 years ago. With such a curious effect, the flagship for FM2 is even slightly faster than the new top solution. However, slightly.

In Audition, the A10-6800K and A10-7850K are roughly equal in favor of a newer processor. But a comparison with the i7-5500U shows that this is just another «inconvenient» case for AMD. Quite inconvenient — where desktop processor models lose not only to laptop ones, but also to ultrabook ones (and if things continue like this, they will soon start tablet ones).

In the previous version of the program, the A10-6800K kept at the level of the A10-7800 with a TDP of 65 W, but now it has slipped to parity from 45 W: as you can see, the software update has a positive effect on intracompany competition. However, the effect somehow obtained is not enough 🙂 rulers. The lag, however, is microscopic, but it exists. What is especially frustrating against the background of the fact that Intel now even CULV solutions are noticeably faster at times.

All are approximately equal, except for the A10-7800 in the reduced TDP mode — apparently, to save energy, the processor tries to spend most of its time in sleep mode, the exit from which takes a certain time, which is especially noticeable under such types of load.

And file operations are somewhat similar to, for example, archivers, which is not surprising — unpacking an ISO image is ideologically close to them. Formally, however, these subtests hardly load the processor with work, so the difference between them is mainly due to the peculiarities of the power-saving modes.

Once upon a time, the older models of AMD APUs successfully competed in processor performance with desktop Core i3. Now, as we see, dual-core processors for ultrabooks are also able to overtake them, with which we “congratulate” the company. In general, the need for modernization in this family is long overdue. And it is a pity that it will not be at least another year. Yes, and anything can happen — a software update in the test method, of course, allowed the A10-7850K to bypass the older A10-6800K in the overall standings, but some 5% performance increase, it seems to us, is not at all what was required. The main effect of the release of Kaveri was the possibility of producing more economical models, such as the A10-7800. The fact that this processor performs at the level of the A10-6800K with a much “narrower” thermal package is already good. Although it is still not enough to compete with Intel in the field of processor performance. But the company’s products have such a trump card as a powerful graphics core. Let’s try to play it.

Gaming applications

For obvious reasons, for computer systems of this level, we limit ourselves to the minimum quality mode, not only in “full” resolution, but also with its reduction to 1366 × 768 (Core i7-5500U was not tested in this mode , but this is not too important for us now — for a qualitative comparison, one mode is enough). Despite the fact that the integrated graphics of the A10 line of desktop processors are the best on the market, even they are not yet able to satisfy the demanding gamer in terms of picture quality. But if you voluntarily agree to the «minimum salary», you can save a lot. We already know this well from previous tests, but today we’ll just see how our updated gaming set works on these processors.

The GPU performance of the A10 is almost twice that of the HD Graphics 5500, which is no secret. And the result is the ability to play, albeit in minimal quality, but in full Full HD resolution.

The game is very processor-dependent, and it mainly requires «single-threaded» performance, so it’s impossible to break away from Intel solutions here. But from a practical point of view, this is not so important — the main thing is that you can play everything.

As in Grid2. Where, however, the requirements for the GPU are higher, so that there is no difference between the subjects.

Metro series games are just very demanding on graphics, so here A10 is still not enough for FHD, but enough to play at lower resolutions.

In Hitman, older Kaveri are almost enough for FHD, and at a lower resolution you can play comfortably.

Thief is still too «heavy» for integrated graphics, although there is some progress in this area, so the processors of the Kaveri Refresh line may already «stretch» at least low-resolution modes.

Tomb Raider feels at ease even in the «full» resolution mode — there are only a few «not enough» Intel processors here. In general, it is already somehow possible to play such toys.

And two examples of how the transition from Richland to Kaveri gives not only a quantitative but also a qualitative effect in the absence of intercompany competition.


Well, as you can see, the software update has had a beneficial effect on Kaveri: the new flagship is now at least faster than the old one, since earlier their equality caused difficult feelings, to say the least ? However. However, it is the A10-7850K that still does not look very interesting, since the A10-7800 appeared, the performance of which is only slightly lower, and the cooling requirements are “lower by many”. However, this still does not pull on a radical breakthrough, since APUs are actually weaker than Intel solutions “as processors”. And even weaker than the solutions of completely different classes — in one segment it could still somehow be endured. But in different ones, the effect is poorly compensated even by a decent video core, since a gamer should still definitely look towards discrete graphics, since its use in desktop systems (even if compact ones) does not pose any difficulties. Therefore, the A10 desktop family remains a niche solution: quite expensive, but, nevertheless, not too gaming and not too productive outside of games. Moreover, cosmetic improvements are clearly unable to significantly change the state of affairs — here it is no longer necessary to rearrange the beds, but change the girls ?


AMD started AMD A10-7850K sales on January 14, 2014 at a suggested price of $173. This is a desktop processor based on the Kaveri architecture, primarily designed for office systems. It has 4 cores and 4 threads and is manufactured using 28nm process technology, the maximum frequency is 4000, the multiplier is locked.

In terms of compatibility, this is an FM2+ socket processor with a TDP of 95W and a maximum temperature of 74°C.
