In the zone
3870K > 32nm > Unlocked > 6% higher IPC!!!!
Its going to rockkk! ;)

hahahahahahahahaaaaaaa!!! killer posts in this forum!!! :D

Excerpts -

Today AMD is using the normal process improvements you see with any design over time to deliver a slight frequency bump without increasing prices. The extra 100MHz you get at the $135 and $115 price points isn't really going to change much, however AMD is introducing two K-series parts (they are also known as Black Edition SKUs) into the Llano lineup.

....

The A8-3870K and 3670K are partially unlocked parts allowing you to overclock an extra 500MHz on the CPU clock and an extra 200MHz on the GPU clock. Stock Llano parts are multiplier locked above their default multiplier and their GPU frequency isn't adjustable from what we've seen. AMD's new K-series SKUs give you another 5 multipliers above the default multiplier on the CPU side, and let you ramp up the GPU clock independently as well.

It looks like the fabled unlocked Llano parts are only partially unlocked. Is this to avoid a complete embarrassment for the FX-4100?

I don't think it needs to be overclocked to embarrass the 4100. It does that at stock.

ROFLMAO!!!!! :D :D :D

Another 1 -

It must be exactly that. The Llanos are true quad cores, while the FX-4100 has the performance of a dual core with HT like characteristics. In fact, I'm still surprised after all these weeks, AMD is still selling it for the same price as a Phenom II X4 955 BE. The same applies to the FX-6100, which can't possibly compare with the X6 1090T, but AMD is selling them for the same price.

I can't think of a valid reason why the A8-3870k couldn't overclock beyond 3.5 Ghz. I can understand not being able to overclock the GPU much, but the CPU? At 32nm, it would be able to go to at least 4 Ghz easily. But then it would seriously start to embarass AMD and their FX line.

In fact, they are already embarassing themselves - they "borrow" Intel's "k" moniker where it means fully unlocked, and do a partially unlocked version ? Who is running AMD's marketing department?


hahahahahahaaaa! :p :D

Anyways... seriously.. partially unlocked?? This is not good!

@lionking,
you can't overclock llano like a normal processor as the tdp is shared between the cpu and gpu.if you try to oc cpu too much then to stay within the tdp the gpu performance will decrease.llano is designed like, when there is demand for cpu power is more then the gpu wil be downclocked and when gpu demand is more then gpu will be given more preferance over cpu.this is to maintain the power consumption within the actual tdp.

Can anybody use AMD A8-3850 APU ? Can it run Battlefield 3, with out any GPU card? I am planing to buy this .. :neutral:
