Futuremark PCMark 7 Results
The AMD A10-5800K APU turned in good performance in this benchmark as it managed to get on par with its direct Intel competitor, the Core i3-3220. Its presence of a L3 cache and support for HyperThreading in this situation didn't give it much advantage over the A10-5800K. More encouragingly, the Trinity APU even pulled ahead of the FX-8150 by a thin margin of 1.1%.
However, all's not what it seems from the overall scores. Peering into the detailed breakdown of results of the AMD A10-5800K against the Intel Core i3-3220, you'll notice that the Intel counterpart actually managed a better performance margin in some of the more intensive tests (more than 8%) than the difference in the overall PCMark 7 score suggests. From that point of view, Intel's solution still maintains the marginal lead when all other factors are equal. This same discrepancy is again repeated when you study the Trinity APU's performance against the AMD FX-8150 where the latter actually rakes in much higher scores in the more processor intensive workloads like "Creativity", "Entertainment" and "Computation". The margin of difference can be as high as 20% to the FX-class processor.
