How €35 8GB memory speeds up AMD's A10 5800K


Review: Corsair Vengeance LP 1600 C9B 8GB review

AMD's CPUs can't compete with Intel's when it comes to processing power alone, but when it comes to integrated graphics, the situation is a bit different. Our today's weapon of choice is AMD's Trinity A10 5800K with HD 7660D graphics engine, which has 384 shader cores. The same embedded GPU is a part of the A10 5700K.

In its core, the HD 7660D is much like the discrete GPU. Memory bandwidth is important factors for performance but since the embedded GPU depends on system momory, the bandwidth will depend on system memory speed.

Today we will look at Corsair's 8GB kit, precisely Vengeance LP CML8GX3M2A1600C9B memory. This set, which consists of 2x4GB modules, goes for only €35. Speed is rated at PC3-12800 (1600 MT/s).
