FUD Zilla reports AMD's upcoming Carrizo APUs are making an appearance in benchmark databases. The early tests reveal performance of a 2.6GHz Carrizo engineering sample is on par with the 3.2GHz A10-7300 Kaveri, which indicates a significant IPC gain.
Graphics performance on the other hand was mixed but this is likely because these parts are still a couple of months away and need further driver tuning. In the GFXBench T-Rex test, based on OpenGL ES 2.0, the Carrizo performed nearly twice as fast as a Radeon R5 GPU but in the OpenGL ES 3.0 based Manhattan test is was a lot slower.
The Carrizo-L processor (AMD Eng Sample: 2M1801C1Y4381_26/18/08/04_9874 (2M 4T 2.6GHz, 1.4GHz IMC, 2x 1MB L2) is clocked at up to 2.6GHz. The new Excavator based CPU is backed by 512-core graphics and the GPU ends up almost twice as fast as previous Radeon R5 on-die solutions.
