Late last week, we posted a glimpse
of what AMD had in store with their latest A-Series APUs for desktop systems. In that article, we were able to officially unveil the Virgo platform and discuss speeds and feeds, GPU performance, and power consumption characteristics. However, we weren’t able to disclose any CPU performance numbers, overclocking data, or pricing. We know some of you aren’t too fond of cliffhangers that leave out important data like that, but thankfully we can give you all the full scoop here today.
In this piece, we’ll fill in the blanks regarding AMD’s latest desktop APUs
and cover the rest of the performance characteristics many of you have been eagerly anticipating, from standard X86 performance to media encoding and overclocking.
