AMD Kaveri APU Showcased, Has Double The Performance Of Intel 4770K With GeForce GT630

DSOGaming writes: "AMD's Developer Summit is currently underway and yesterday the company showcased its new APU, the Kaveri. AMD's Kaveri - the A10-7850K - was put against an Intel i7-4770K paired with an Nvidia GeForce GT630." (AMD, Battlefield 4, Intel, NVIDIA, PC, Tech)

Nice! might have to switch back to AMD.

it's just graphics performance which it do better, intel cpu crushes Amd cpu's. and on pc no real gamer use apus.

Not true AMDs APUs are great if your one a strict budget and the GPU on the APU can be crossfired with a discrete GPU. Also Intel CPUs dont crush AMD CPUs look at games like BF4 which are multi thread aware AMD keeps up with Intel CPUs that are priced considerably higher.

Intel's graphics on their CPU just doesn't function like AMD's does. They are lacking GPU experience.

AMD is planning to use its APUs against Intel as Intel is building the same thing, but have lack of experience in Graphics so their CPU still functions most of the time as a CPU alone. Intel's 4700 series CPUs should have Intel 4600 series graphics on the CPUs. That Plus GT630 can't perform against AMD's APU. Is a big problem for Intel in the future if they don't fix it. http://www.anandtech.com/sh...

AMD can use APUs to set them back on top. As NVIDIA goes into APUs, Intel's APUs are already out there. Just not quite up to par with AMD. It will be interesting to see what NVIDIA's APUs do on ARM.

Not bad at all for a low cost AIO APU.

3 years from now > AMD APU surpassing Ps4/X-1 and becaming a very good, and cheap, option for Pc gaming! The age of "you need a gigantic Video card, a crossair 550-750W power supply and a good cooler to play this" will soon be over, and this is good to pc gaming! because a easier to build rig means more pc gamers to come! think about this! you can have a good pc, whit more power than a console, whit just a good mother board, memory, HD and a APU (no need to especial power supply, no need for a expensive card that make your rig hot as helland no need for 2-3 coolers on the tower)

Will happen sooner!

Anyone remembers the time when the 387 floating point processor was an external chip? It moved onto the CPU chip.
Now GPUs will make the same journey.

Little point in having more than 8 CPU cores, a lot of reason to have enormous floating point performance with low latency to tap into even on non graphics related applications.

Well you can still buy high power cards + APU power in the future. I don't think it will kill graphics card buyers, but it likely will bring in a new crowd of casual buyers as they don't have to look up hardware anymore to get started with PC gaming.

Just think about when multiple APUs can come on the same die in the future when we get down to even smaller CPU dies. Maybe an APU grid CPU one day. :)

Nice

Hooray! APU faster at graphics than a crap graphics card nobody would use alongside a top class CPU.

Congratulations on another pointless comparison.

Why don't they just compare it to an AMD FX processor and a low end AMD card instead? Oh, because they are trying to reflect a win against their rivals with a set up nobody realistically would have

Wow, VERY impressive! If it runs it medium 1080p at 25-40fps, it would be perfect for 1600x900 or 720p monitors... The trident series worked great for casual gaming PC's, so this is great news if they keep the price point at $100-$130

EDIT: It'll also be interesting to see how mantle, once fully implemented, will raise these numbers by giving the system full optimization controls for games, allowing resources to be shifted in massive ways towards improving in-game performance.

No one uses a GT-630!

If this was done against a Intel i7-4770k and GTX750m then YES I would be very impressed.

Sucks that AMD is bragging about beating a LAST Gen Nvidia GPU that is LOW-END.

Now lets see some CPU benchmarks against that Intel and watch AMD get SMOKED like Veterans Day BBQ!

Well yeah, they wanted to stack the odds in their favor, silly. ;)

Obviously no informed gamer would take this seriously, because of this comparison.

"Let's put a 300$ cpu with a slow ass gpu to show em we can beat it"

I don't even get it..
