Below is a list of the applications we've used for our testing:
We've used Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, as this is the most popular 64-bit OS and the most reliable for testing the applications above.

Test Hardware

  • MSI A88XI motherboard
  • 8GB (2x 4GB) G.Skill Ripjaw 1,600MHz DDR3 memory (CL9)
  • 8GB (2x 4GB) Corsair Dominator Platinum 2,133MHz DDR3 memory (CL9) (memory scaling testing)
  • 256GB Plextor M5 Pro SSD
  • Corsair H80i CPU cooler
  • PC Power & Cooling Silencer 750W PSU


As the A10-7800 is geared more towards low power systems and CPU portion of the chip is multiplier-locked too, we've run all tests at stock speeds. However, we have carried out testing using 2,133MHz memory and at both 45W and 65W, which are the two optimised TDP modes. We've changed motherboards too and now use an MSI A88XI. However, older results were carried out with a larger ATX motherboard so the power results are likely to be a little lower by comparison.
