    Default Dual graphics dud: Intelís Core i3-4330 overpowers AMDís A10-7850K in budget gaming



    One of the appealing features of AMDís APUs, particularly for cost-conscious buyers, has always been the ability to hook up a second low-end discrete GPU and combine the graphics performance of both the on-board APU and the discrete GPU. The last time we evaluated Dual Graphics performance, we found that an A10-5800K plus an AMD Radeon HD 6570 was a significantly faster solution compared to an Intel Core i5-3550. As AMDís on-board APUs have become more powerful and available bandwidth has edged up from DDR3-1600 to DDR3-2133, the combination of on-board GPU and discrete graphics card should be even more potent.

    AMD only enables Dual Graphics on GPUs up to the R7 250, and it recommends the DDR3 variant of that card for best results. The recent Radeon price cuts, however, have put a twist on the equation. The DDR3-equipped R7 250 that AMD recommends sells for $90 at Newegg. How much of an advantage does this combination offer? Letís find out.

    The 7850k is $174.99, Free Shipping and comes with BF4. That was not included in their pricing comparisons. What games do you get with the Intel Solution? None. That is a $49 Value that was missed. This is at Newegg right now.

    Microcenter has the 7850k for $149.99. You also save an additional $40 off the an A88x board.

    I am not sure about your thoughts but to me it looks like the numbers are skewed into Intels favor by ignoring certain info. I personally have never seen the 7850k priced at $185. I also have never seen it priced without some additional bargain, Game, board, discounted GPU ect.

    The Diamond version of the R7-250 is $10 cheaper on the same site he quoted. Why pick the one that cost more? The R7-260 he paired with the Intel cpu is not 120. It is $129. $10 more then stated. That alters the Price/performance

    These are all small things but they all add up. If the math is wrong the entire comparison is off.

    We will find out how well the performance is soon, I have my 7850K on the test bench and will be starting to test this week, I will show results for both the 6800k with dual graphics to see if the boost is better. In comparison, I can see how well it performed against the 4770K with its base on board GPU..

    Normally I would be the first one there with you calling BS.....but unless you are building a box for the sole purpose of playing BF4, the numbers were just so far off it just isn't worth digging into. The end result of rerunning the numbers does no more than leave you saying "see, I told you it wasn't completely humiliating, it was merely really embarrassing". Kind of like playing a make up game after the season ends to decide fourth place in the AL West with no Wild Card on the line.
