CPU Performance

With its higher clock speeds, Athlon X4 880K slightly outperforms the A10-7860K across the board in the same way the A10-7860K beats out the A8-7600. The 880K is substantially more power hungry though, with our more demanding benchmarks drawing an extra 30+ watts, a sizable difference considering what little extra performance is gained. As usual, none of the APUs come close to competing with the more expensive Intel Skylake, Broadwell, and/or Haswell Core i5/i7s in either regard. The only real surprise comes in the Photoshop test with the X4 880K squeezing past the FX-8350 despite their equivalent clock speed, suggesting that there have some core improvements to the underlying CPU architecture.

Our relative performance figures are calculated by giving each CPU a proportional score in each benchmark with each test having an equal weighting. The scale has been adjusted so that the A10-7860K is the reference point with a score of 100.

The Athlon X4 880K holds a 6% advantage over the A10-7860K, which in turn, holds a 6% lead over the A8-7600.
