    Erm, is it just me or is the Ashes of the Singularity Benchmark showing the average FPS as 5-6?

    Re: AMD Bristol Ridge APUs released to retail

    These APUs are not aimed at mid to high end users, they are just plain cheap processors than can keep the intel Celeron/Pentium/i3 with iGP at bay. I want to see more of $200-$300 laptops powered by AMD so that intel can stop their bullish attitude of charging consumers high prices. I still believe intel Celeron is too costly for its performance.

    I think AMD CPUs are the better option for cheap laptops. At least their low end graphics are at least capable of some basic gaming. Intel, basically nothing.

    No doubt in pure CPU performance the 2C/4T Intel CPUs will beat this,but the IGP is not too bad at all.



    That is Overwatch on an A12 9800 with mildly overclocked 2400MHZ RAM.

    that A10-9700E looks lush....

    35w

    THIRTY FIVE WATTS

    Passive APU people.. and capable of playing old titles and low demand games easily. Slap some quality ram in, a vast passive cooler (or a big slow turning fan) and Rober in your Mothers Brother!

    Re: AMD Bristol Ridge APUs released to retail

    Odd to see the 35W variant, don't these things have programmable TDP in the BIOS any more?

    Still, nice to see something you can put in an AM4 motherboard down at the £47 level.

    Would be interesting to see how CPU performance of the 9800 compares to the R3 1200 at the same price.

    Some CB scores here:

    http://www.anandtech.com/show/11669/...-am4-gets-apus

    Going from that,a Ryzen 3 1200 has nearly a 41% higher CB R15 score for a single thread.

    It seems 28 nanometre lithography was not bad after all.

    Took them long enough. Thought this would have come out with the AM4 mobos. The technology here is now very old

    looks all good to me and if they are all under £110, can build some great basic pcs for people. the A12 part for £110 that enables some basic gaming is a win win.

    They're listed for pre-order on Scan. It looks like they launch on the 18th - https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comment...lon_cpus_hard/
