AMD A8-8600P

The A8-8600P is a 2 core CPU from AMD. This chip has an average overall score at 13% in our CPU benchmark. Our gaming benchmark shows that this CPU is an average processor for gaming, with a score of 23%. As for multitasking and heavy workloads, the A8-8600P scores 10% and 10% respectively. Indeed, this is a bad rating for very heavy workloads.

The A8-8600P has 2 cores and 4 threads. This CPU makes use of simultaneous multithreading technology to improve performance on parallel tasks. Each physical CPU core is divided into multiple logical processors. This AMD CPU has a clock speed of 1.6 GHz.

As for memory, the A8-8600P makes use of DDR3 memory. The faster the memory, the better. Faster memory means that the CPU doesn't have to wait to get the data it needs. Furthermore, this chip can handle up to 2 channels of RAM, a multichannel memory architecture allows for higher data transfer between the CPU and the memory. However, to take advantage of this, you must have enough memory slots filled.

In terms of cache, the A8-8600P has 2 MiB of level 2 cache. This is a fast memory located close to the processor, which stores copies of frequently used data from main memory.

Power and thermals for the AMD A8-8600P CPU are a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of 15 watts. This measures the amount of heat the processor produces when running at full load. This isn't a measure of power consumption, but it's good estimate.
