AMD A10-6800K and A10-6700 Richland APUs Tested
Media Encoding and Image Editing
Here we're going to look directly at AMD's HD Media Accelerator in the new A10 series APUs and compare it to Intel's Ivy Bridge and Haswell Quick Sync engines and competitive CPU-based solutions, as well.
AMD's latest APUs put up some better numbers here, but they still can't come close to matching the performance of Intel's Quick Sync engine.
Musemage is a fully-functional GPU-powered photo editing software suite. Thanks to the GPU-accelerated filters built into the app, Musemage can leverage the additional performance afforded by a more powerful GPU and offer real-time (or near real-time) visual feedback. The application also offers a built-in benchmark, which outputs performance as a final "score". The score put up by each test system is represented in the graph below.
AMD's A10 series APUs all put up similar scores in the MuseMage benchmark, which was significantly higher than anything from the Intel camp.
