AMD leaked info shows upcoming Core i7 2600k performance levels

Some performance projections for AMD's upcoming range of FX and Llano A4, A6 and A8 APU's have leaked online.

These slides have been published by DonanimHaber and they highlight that Llano should prove a good ‘overall' match for Intel's Sandybridge processors. While the GPU elements appear stronger, the CPU processing power will likely be weaker.

In testing it appears that the most power A8 series Llano chip can outclass the Core i5 2300 in PCMark and 3DMark Vantage testing, however when CPU power is analysed it falls behind the Core i3 2100. AMD are well known to have strong graphics processing but Sandybridge is still a tough chip to target purely on CPU power alone.

The 8 Core FX processor seemingly matches the Core i7 2600k and ranks 25 percent faster than the current X6 1100T flagship chip. Clearly Intel will still have the ultimate high end lead with the 970, 980x and 990x processors.

KitGuru says: Obviously none of this is verified and until we get our hands on it directly it is to be taken with a pinch of salt, but it gives an indication that the upcoming chips are certainly a significant leap ahead for AMD.

  1. I wasnt expecting them to be able to match a 2600k ! thats impressive. 980 and 990x, well thats a different ball game.

    If they get the price of the 2600k beater to slightly under Intels current rate,t hats a winner.

  2. they need something to compete against 2600k. look forward to seeing this new range, it looks to be competitive in the mainstream. shame they dont have a new 12 core design to target intels 990x. that would be wicked to see

    The leaked results are for pcmark, 980x and 990x fall behind 2600k in that benchmark as it doesnt benifit from more then 4 cores. Alot of people are assuming the worst because of this leak, even though it the results look very good when some rearch is applied to what the results mean. Not only does it have 8 cores, but it must also have a good IPC to compete with the 2600k and beat 980x 990x in pcmark. I would be intrested to see the results for the 4 core version of this chip would do, as it clearly favors 4 cores higher clocked cores then more less highly clocked ones.
