    It's Hynix RAM is all. Not sure how or why it's running at that timing, but it is.

    Hi Atom; thanks for this complete thread.

    I am thinking to upgrade my A8 3510mx by an A10 4600m. The difference between those 2 APU are that A10 sockect is FS1r2 and A8 is FS1; i wonder if the A10 will work for me? I own an HP DV6 6b47dx.

    Oh, bad news :( (Is a common topic? Now is when i am reading it on your signature).

    Anyway, thanks for the answer man. Cheers.

    EDIT: I was reading some post on your signature link, and now i am thinking to change the motherboard for one that support the CPU; the biggest problem is found one that fix the chassis. I still thinking on upgrade it because is hard to found US $ on my country and the only piece i need is the CPU.

    I do not think the new motherboard will fit into the old body, all the screws connectors should be in the same place... Not sure which country are you in, but better if you try to order a new or used Trinity laptop from abroad, they cheap and will work for sure!

    He is writing really weird things, the worst is;

    "increasing the CPU voltage increases CPU performance, and increasing the NB VID increases video performance."

    Why would voltage increase cause performance increase?
    I'd say no, because the APU will reach earlier its 35W TDP limit, therefore rather cause performance loss (Turbo Core 3.0 won't work as often as with default voltage). Plus higher voltage cause higher temperatures which will be another bottleneck for Trinity Turbo cores. Not mention higher voltage and temperatures will kill the whole laptop!
    Locking CPU cores in turbo 2700MHz State again not a good idea, because you bottleneck GPU Turbo frequency; the two of them together cannot run in Turbo mod...
    Overclocking Trinity GPU cores will unlikely cause performance increase due to again the strict 35W TDP limit, maybe in less CPU demanding games.

    About Llano's overclocking; yes it is possible and TDP limit won't prevent those higher clocks, however GPU won't run higher frequency than 457MHz which involve less than 5% performance increase...

    So for overall I would not follow that guide, because the best what you can do for your Trinity is buy the fastest Memory modules!

    can anyone post some printscreens on detailed passmark scores form the A10 here, showing scores of each single cpu category. Im interested in exact difference between the A10 and my i5.

    Thanks!

    I had a full Passmark 7.x run with A10-4600M and I believe I uploaded my baseline into their database. However with the new version 8.0, I cannot recover that baseline...

    Thank for the reply. I can´t see seperate scores tho on the passmark site. I only get like the total score of the A10 but i am interested in the architectural difference between both and how they compare in each single test. I want to look a bit deeper into the i5/i3-A10 comparison. So that is basicly why i asked for a printscreen rather than just a score.
