AMD A10-5800K vs. Intel 3220 Head to Head

Recommended Posts

Introduction

 

Choosing hardware for a computer can be a daunting task. For most, choosing the right processor can be as equally challenging. For those not familiar with processors and performance, Intel has held the king of performance for many years but AMD has shaken up the competition as recent. In 2011 AMD introduced Zacate and Llano which used AMD

Memory

 

Aida64

AIDA64 implements a set of 64-bit benchmarks to measure how fast the computer performs various data processing tasks and mathematical calculations. Memory and cache benchmarks are available to analyze system RAM bandwidth and latency. Processor benchmarks utilize MMX, 3DNow!, SSE, XOP, FMA, and AVX instructions, and scale up to 32 processor cores. For legacy processors all benchmarks are available in 32-bit version as well. AIDA64 Disk Benchmark determines the data transfer speed of hard disk drives, solid-state drives, optical drives, and flash memory based devices.

 

There is no secret here. Intel owns AMD with memory read/write and copy speeds along with Latencies. We will see if the additional bandwidth equates to better performance shortly.

Disk Performance

 

ATTO

The ATTO Disk Benchmark performance measurement tool is compatible with Microsoft Windows. Measure your storage systems performance with various transfer sizes and test lengths for reads and writes. Several options are available to customize your performance measurement including queue depth, overlapped I/O and even a comparison mode with the option to run continuously. Use ATTO Disk Benchmark to test any manufacturers RAID controllers, storage controllers, host adapters, hard drives and SSD drives and notice that ATTO products will consistently provide the highest level of performance to your storage.

 

In disk performance between the platforms using the Asmedia and Intel Controller: Linear speeds trade blows in read and write performance.

USB 3.0

 

CrystalMark

CrystalMark is a useful benchmark suite, that lets you to test your CPU, memory, HDD and video (GDI, Direct Draw, OpenGL) subsystems. The program also shows some information about your system. The report can be saved in a text or HTML.

 

I also wanted to test USB 3.0 performance between the platforms. For today

Synthetic Benchmarks

 

3DMark 11

3DMark 11 is a DirectX 11 video card benchmark test for Windows that is designed to measure your PC's gaming performance. 3DMark 11 makes extensive use of DirectX 11 features including tessellation, compute shaders and multi-threading. Trusted by gamers worldwide to give accurate and unbiased results, 3DMark 11 is the best way to consistently and reliably test DirectX 11 under game-like loads.

 

In 3DMark 11, we see a tight race: about 1% difference in total score. Intel wins by a close margin at stock speeds but AMD pulls ahead overclocked. Looks like we are seeing a trend.

3DMark 2013 (Fire Strike)

The new 3DMark includes everything you need to benchmark your hardware. With three all new tests you can bench everything from smartphones and tablets, to notebooks and home PCs, to the latest high-end, multi-GPU gaming desktops. And it's not just for Windows. With 3DMark you can compare your scores with Android and iOS devices too.

 

Ditto with FireStrike: The A10-5800K overclocked takes a close race.

PCMark 7

PCMark 7 is a complete PC benchmarking solution for Windows 7 and Windows 8. It includes 7 tests combining more than 25 individual workloads covering storage, computation, image and video manipulation, web browsing and gaming. Specifically designed for the full range of PC hardware from netbooks and tablets to notebooks and desktops, PCMark 7 offers complete Windows PC performance testing for home and business use.

 

The trend continues with PCMark7. Many like this benchmark as it scores the total system with a slew of tests. AMD pulls a very short victory.

Very little separation with PCMark 7.

Gaming Benchmarks

 

Battlefield 3

Battlefield 3 (commonly abbreviated BF3) is a first-person shooter video game developed by EA Digital Illusions CE and published by Electronic Arts. It is a direct sequel to 2005's Battlefield 2, and the twelfth installment in the Battlefield franchise.

 

In BF3, Intel beats AMD using our Radeon 7970 in both stock and overclocked. As a side note: I used 13.2 Beta drivers for the testing.

Call of Duty

Call of Duty: Black Ops II is a first-person shooter video game, developed by Treyarch and published by Activision (Square Enix for Japan). The single-player campaign features two connected storylines, with the first set from 1986 to 1989 during the final years of the first Cold War, and the other set in 2025 during a second Cold War. The protagonist of Black Ops, Alex Mason returns as the protagonist in the first Cold War section, and chronicles the rise to infamy of the game's primary antagonist, Raul Menendez,[14] a Nicaraguan narco-terrorist and the leader of "Cordis Die", a populist movement celebrated as the champion of victims of economic inequality.

 

C.O.D shows equal performance at 93FPS but overclocked was a tad slower. When running multi-player and scenes that are not programmed, these things do happen. None the less, looks like relative equal performance with Call of Duty.

Dirt 3

Dirt 3 (stylised DiRT 3) is a rallying video game and the third in the Dirt series of the Colin McRae Rally series, developed and published by Codemasters.

 

With Dirt 3, we see a reversal. AMD pulls one out here.

Alien vs. Predator

Test your PC's DirectX 11 performance with this free, standalone benchmark test based upon Rebellion's 2010 inter-species shooter Aliens vs. Predator. The test shows xenomorph-tastic scenes using tessellation and other such fancy DX11 features.

 

AvP also shows equal performance.

Resident Evil 6

Resident Evil 6 is a third-person shooter video game in the Resident Evil series, developed and published by Capcom. Capcom defines the game's genre as "dramatic horror", however there is disagreement among reviewers whether this installment belongs in survival horror genre.

 

Lastly, Intel

Summary

 

The debate may continue on what processor is better but facts are facts. Dissecting the various levels can be confusing as many assume Intel makes the best processors. Intel

Very good comparison Drdeath. I also heard people telling I3s better than A10-5800K.

Your review is more than enough answer for them..

Thanks DM. This thread should get a lot of hits for the club too. Traffic builder perhaps?

Trinity?  :rolleyes: 

 

Biggest game changer is that HSA is becoming closer to reality with the PS4 and Kaveri APUs :) You ain't seen nothing yet :D
