An example of OpenCL GPGPU performance us making use of Winzip 16.5 in particular. We compress four sets of 292 MB of data (a driver package) and with the new WinZip we can now enable OpenCL, meaning the compression routine uses the GPU to compress and that speeds up performance significantly.
So this test is very rough and new so only a few entries here:
Basically what you see is almost 1 GB of data being compressed. The Core i7 2600K (high-end) on it's own takes 29 Seconds. The A10 5800K is a budget APU, it needs 42 seconds to finish the same job. If we enable OpenCL then the numbers go down quickly. The IGP OpenGL assist brings the performance towards 31 seconds.
Though we have to say, in the 2600K setup we had a Radeon HD 7700 installed, once you enable OpenCL on that one ... it kills. But surely you can see the benefit of GPGPU assisted tasks.
AMD A10 6790 review We review the AMD A10 6790 APU processor, the little brother of the 6800K and the big brother of the 6700 just became available in the stores. With performance close to the 6800 this might be the budg...
AMD A10 6700 review We review the 100 EUR AMD A10 6700 APU processor, the little brother of the 6800K we just reviewed a little while ago. Based on Piledriver architecture this processor slash graphics hybrid symbiosis called APU.
AMD A10 6800K review We review the 125 EUR AMD A10 6800K APU processor. Based on Piledriver architecture this processor slash graphics hybrid symbiosis called APU remains hard to beat in terms of features performance.
AMD A10 5700 review We review the AMD A10 5700 APU processor. Based on the APU architecture and building on the strengths of the Llano design, the 2012 AMD A-Series platform has been updated to meet and exceed the increasing demands of today’s consumers.
