This thing is not slower than any i3 (this point is arguable for single threaded performance). There isn't an i3 that runs faster than 3.5 ghz that I know of. This runs at 4.4 ghz and has 4 cores. Intel's IPC is generally greater than AMD's so we're not really comparing apples to apples. It's more like we're comparing 2 peaches to 4 plums.
It does use a lot more power, though it's power consumption is impressively low during idle. I think AMD could improve on this point, but it's not going to run up your electricity bill. And (un)fortunately, you can't use it to heat your house. The 6800k can use up to 100 watts where the top i3 will use up to 55 watts. That's not to say that the 6800k will always run at 100 watts and the i3 always runs at 55 watts. The 6800k actually draws less power at idle than an i3 I believe.
The iGPU is decent. It's not meant for performance gaming. It's meant for entry level gaming. It beats the i7 4770's hd 4600 iGPU. The iris pro 5200 could trump the 6800k's hd 8670d, but I don't believe you can actually buy a processor with iris pro graphics. I'm pretty sure they have to be soldered to the motherboard and I'm pretty sure they have a hefty price tag.
This thing has a place. It might not be in high-end gaming.Read more ›
I ran this next to one of my i3, and was blown away.
Here are the stats at the time
i3 3.4ghz 16gb ramm
A10-6800k 4gb ramm
I ran Cubase 7 on both of them. I ran the same parameters on each track, recording, VST, and VSTi (mind you these are not visually demanding programs)
The i3 made it to about 10 tracks playing before it started skipping, hissing, and popping to where it was unworkable. Which when it comes to the music world that is like using a cassette recorder to record the Philharmonic.
The A10-6800K made it to over 50 tracks going at one time, Spotify streaming, and me surfing the net with multiple windows open before it started stuttering.
I think I have got it up to around 100 VST's & VSTi's running with multiple recorded tracks playing, and recording an instrument at that point without any lag or loss in quality. I have jumped it up to 16 gigs of ramm now also.
Needless to say the Intel builds I had are now both my sons game computers, and homework computers. I took a chance on switching to AMD just to test out a build with them. Needless to say I wish I would have checked them out awhile back, because I am loving AMDs now, and most of the small studio owners, and indie musicians around here are switching to AMD processors.

1st things 1st, for those not being able to install iGPU video drivers update your motherboard's bios to fully support this CPU, it will most likely support the CPU alone (not the iGPU) by default but it will probably not find the iGPU(that's what we want it to find! :D). Ok now that we got that out of the table let's continue with my review.
After i built the system, installed windows blah blah blah, i got to be honest i play games. I have another system with an old PhenomII X4 965BE OC'ed to 4GHz and a XFX HD7970 GHz Edition so yeah im used to a high end'ish kind of performance, now after installing everything needed, with my stock air cooler i saw i had no headroom for overclocking at all (Note: It's about 32*C degree average in my country) so the CPU gets pretty hot, i then went to bios to underclock and undervolt it to 3.8GHz and 800MHz (to protect my CPU) while i got my custom air cooler well it happens to be i had an old am3+ cooler laying around and i just had to try it, to my luck CPU temps went down 10*C degree on the CPU side and on the iGPU it went down 12*C degree. If you have an AM3+ Cooler put it in! it also allowed me to leave the CPU at 4.4GHz and the iGPU at 900MHz permanently without the AMD PowerNow! feature.
Now performance wise, CPU performs well compared to my other daily use CPU the P2X4 browsing, watching videos, etc etc. The Phenom is slightly faster in other applications than the 6800k, while the 6800k beats the P2X4 in others ofc.Read more ›
