This is your AMD APU. This is your AMD APU on DX12; any questions?

Earlier in the month [H]ard|OCP investigated the performance scaling that Intel processors display in DX12, now they have finished their tests on AMD processors.  These tests include Async computing information, so be warned before venturing forth into the comments.  [H] tested an FX 8370 at 2GHz and 4.3GHz to see what effect this had on the games, the 3GHz tests did not add any value and were dropped in favour of these two turbo frequencies.  There are some rather interesting results and discussion, drop by for the details.

"One thing that has been on our minds about the new DX12 API is its ability to distribute workloads better on the CPU side. Now that we finally have a couple of new DX12 games that have been released to test, we spend a bit of time getting to bottom of what DX12 might be able to do for you. And a couple sentences on Async Compute."

Here are some more Graphics Card articles from around the web:

GAY AMD SHIT IS GAY. FUNNY HOW YOU NEVER MENTION THAT THE FAILURE RATES OF AMD CHIPSETS, AND GPU'S IS FUCKING 10X THAT OF THEIR INTEL AND NVIDIA COUNTERPARTS. FUCK AMD AND THEIR SHITTY, JANKY, PEASANT AS FUCK, SHIT AND THAT GOOK LISA WU WHO LOOKS LIKE A FUCKING TROLL FUCKED A GAOT, AND THEN ABORTED THE FETUS INTO A POLLUTED SHIT INFESTED RIVER, WHERE IT SOMEHOW ATE THE SHIT AND SURVIVED, AND WENT ON TO BECOME LISA FU OR WHOEVER.

And a Full goose-step and Waffen SS mentality from Your all caps rantings! Well it's Nuts To You and your Deranged Musings! I hate Illinois Nazis!

Caps lock glued down - check.
Completely fact-free rant - check.
Zero evidence - check.
Overdose of profanity - check.
Heaps of racism - check.

Confirmed. You're no more than 11 years old. Go back to your console, child. I hope that one day a decent adult teaches you how to be a moderately functional human being, because your parents have failed you miserably.

Spot on. You're really adding value and seems like a well balanced argument. Perhaps PCper will give you that Editors job you so deserve.

You go girlfriend! Girl power!

You go JOE six-pack your jobs are so thoroghly exported to where the workers are not so depraved and obsessed with Sports that even the Unions have been ruined by sports obsessed pathological sociopaths!

Now what the government needs to do with all the out of work Joe six-packs, waxing Nazi/Fascist in their leanings, is to get them back to the farm from once they came and out of the cities where Joe six-pack is out of a job and adding to the crime rates. Back to the country with you hicks, it's a post industral world where you live Mr. Six-Pack.

Joe Six-Pack just a redneck by another name, and making the cities in the post industral world damn near unlivable. Joe Six-Pack, John L. Lewis is spinning in his grave at what your dishonorable actions have done to the working man! It's best to return to an agrarian existence and try to get that Joe Six-pack depravity worked out of your mindset!

Ha Ha Ha, your jobs have been exported overseas, They've given them to the Red Chinese! Hay Joe Six-pack maybe they will bring chariots onto the old football gridiron and toss bread into the stands, they will need to, because all your cash will have been spent on tickets! It's been good idea after all these years of post industral deporting of the factory jobs, and even before, for all of you bumpkins(Joe Six-Pack is a bumbkin to the MAX) to keep some farm land in the family! So if things got bad and you could not change your station in life by getting yourself educated with marketable skills, then you could always go back to the farm and be dollar poor but dirt rich!

Joe sixola here your friendly neighborhood pisan don't worry bout us we make it in any environment.

Joe sixola you get back to that farm, and there you, and your "friends in the know" can shakedown the other pesants for their cheese and thus become the big cheese! You definitely are leading to the urban crime problem!

P.S. non a paisano! To me or any other person from the boot! You may have the Americans tricked, but not those in the land of Fiaschella, Lampadina, Patanara, Principe Borghese, Re Umberto, San Marzano, Borgo Cellano, etc!

P.S. you did to the trade unions what the Pinkerton Detective Agency never could, so go hug your Richard Nixon! What a nice thing that Nixon did for you and your votes, and really only for his old family old money east egg supporters, by keeping his attorney general on a very short leash and allowing you to bring your brand fascism to the once democratic trade unions!

Joe Six-pack sports obsessed to the complete and utter of failure of all the other things that make for a democratic civilization! P.S. say goodby to more of those jobs and the racket revenues that they produce. I hear that the Chinese are again moving them from China to Vietnam to get lower labor rates, jobs that currently can not be readily automated. Watch out for those ROBOTS from Boston Dynamics/others! I hear that they are much meaner than Melvin Purvis and can tote a few of the GAU-8s or M61s and the hoppers for quite a few rounds!

This is the revenge of the NERDS!

P.S. You ruin any environment with that mostly fat between your ears!

IT's all so clear now, thank you for awakening me to the truth

You are a sad, pathetic little child. I have great pity for anyone forced to withstand your presence.

One day you will get what you deserve. Fear that day.

FX8370 is not an APU Jeremy.

Was thinking the same thing.

Not enough DX12 titles in the testing options to really come to any conclusions! Hopefully there will be more on The Vulkan API also, but both DX12 and Vulkan need time and a lot more titles before things are done na decided.

Both Polaris and Pascal, and their replacments in 2017 Vega and Volta will also have to be tested and reviewd and it's going to be well into 2017 before enough titles are available and fully optimized for DX12/Vulkan! The hardware landscape is still in flux for both AMD and Nvidia and the gaming options fully optimized for DX12 and Vulkan are still lacking! The VR gaming titles will reall be the ones to put Async computing to the test, and the new benchmarks for DX12/Vulkan for regular gaming and VR gaming are still in development themselves!

OMG wait till Pascal and Polaris arrive and the all caps rantings of those that would best stay watching ESPN and posting there! Instead of Them trying to fathom that which they will never be able to understand in the high technology gaming market like GPUs and CPUs and the complex systems that are forever under development by PHDs, engineers with PHDs, and PHDs in many sicence fields, as well as software engineers, some with advanced degrees also!

Please FanBoys get a kickstarter going to get an AMD and Nvidia semi-pro football league going(red and green teams) where you can get your definitive Winner/Looser Fix and stop your madness! Take that special madness to a more easy to define sports like reality where things will not be so complicated for that single brain cell in your heads, so stressed with drinking and other drugs and other genetic traits that are present in your genomes!

The biggest problem with DX12 is the Operating system it's restricted to, that and it's arriving 10 years later than it should've thanks to Microsoft's focus being on its console.

Not as angry as the other guy, but I had an AMD APU board fail on me and kill 2 4TB and 2 3TB drives and NIC died. Nephew had RAM go bad on same chipset after a year, F U AMD ur trash!

May 3, 2016 | 06:57 PM - Posted by Anonymous (not verified)

Board Made by AMD or was it just the chipsets and the board had a third party OEM? What as the point of failure, it looks like chipset did in your Nephew's RAM, but who made the motherboard.
