(1) AMD suggested retail pricing
(2) The Quad-core AMD A10-5800K using AMD Turbo Core technology has a maximum frequency of 4.2 GHz with a suggested retail price of $122 as compared to the Dual-core Intel Core i3 2120 / 3220 with a maximum frequency of 3.3 GHz (Intel Turbo Boost technology is not available for the Intel Core i3 family of processors) and a retail price of $124.99. Intel pricing on on 9/26/2012:
(3) GFLOPS calculations developed by AMD performance labs measuring compute capacity for the AMD A10-5800K desktop APU which is 736 GFLOPS. AMD GFLOPS calculated using GFLOPs = CPU GFLOPs + GPU GFLOPS = CPU Core Freq. (3.8GHz) X Core Count (4) X 8 FLOPS + GPU Core Freq.(800MHz) X DirectX® 11 capable Shader Count (384) X 2 FLOPS TRD-38
(4) 6.5 GHz reached on an AMD A10-5800K with AMD Radeon™ HD 7660D Graphics, 2x4GB DDR3 1866, Windows 7 64bit using LN2 cooling @ 1.85V. AMD's product warranty does not cover damages caused by overclocking, even when overclocking is enabled with AMD hardware or software.
(5) Testing conducted by AMD performance labs using PCMark®7 from Futuremark® benchmark, the AMD A10-5800K APU with AMD Radeon™ HD 7660D Graphics scored 4079 while the AMD A8-3850 APU with AMD Radeon™ HD 6550D Graphics scored 3226 . All scores rounded to the nearest whole number.
(6) Testing conducted by AMD performance labs using DiRT 3™ @ 1280×1024, DirectX®11 under medium settings. The AMD A10-5800K APU with an AMD Radeon™ HD 6570 in AMD Dual Graphics mode scored and average of 92.62 FPS while the AMD A10-5800K APU with only the AMD Radeon™ HD 6570 Graphics card enabled scored an average of 52.63. Test configuration with AMD Dual Graphics enabled and disabled: Pre-production engineering sample AMD A10-5800K APU with AMD Radeon™ HD 7660D Graphics, AMD Radeon™ HD 6570 graphics card, 2x4GB DDR3-1866, 7200rpm Hard Drive with Windows® 7 64 bit on AMD "Annapurna" reference design.
