AMD Athlon 5350 (Kabini AM1 Platform) FS1b APU Review (w/ Sapphire R7 240 Low Profile)

Cinebench R15

We tested the chip's single- and multi-core performance using Cinebench R15. OpenGL performance was also recorded.

Unfortunately we did not have access to data for the single-core result for AMD's Kaveri A10-7850K APU.

The 2.05GHz quad-core Athlon 5350 APU delivers a respectable score in the Cinebench R15 CPU test. AMD indicated that Kabini's ‘Jaguar' cores are about 50% of the size of the ‘Steamroller' versions used in the company's Kaveri APU.

Looking at the performance numbers, the 50% size reduction seems to translate into approximately 50% of the performance. Given the target market of the Kabini APUs, that isn't such a bad result.

Cinebench's OpenGL test delivers a score of 14.24 FPS for the Kabini chip. That's less than half the typical score of a Kaveri APU, which is not surprising given the difference in GPU horsepower between the two models.

The Athlon 5350 delivers just over half the performance of AMD's A10-7850K in the Sandra Arithmetic test. Put into perspective, the Athlon 5350 is a 25W part versus the 95W TDP for the A10-7850K.

Sandra Cryptographic

The Athlon 5350 delivers promising encryption and decryption performance, as proven by the Sandra Cryptographic test.

According to data gathered from the Kaveri-powered system, AMD's Athlon 5350 out-muscles the A10-7850K in the SHA-256 test. Reasons for the performance differentials could include varied memory speeds and different drive configurations between the two systems.
