DDR3 2278.4 CL10 11-10-27 1T
ADIA64 Memory Read - 10826 MB/s
Sandra Memory Bandwidth - 18915 MB/s
MaXXMEM Memory-Copy - 13200 MB/s
The Llano APU platform has made obvious progress with the DDR3 clock. In the past, the AM3 could only reach the upper limit of about 1800 to 2000 only
This is the first time I’ve seen the AMD DDR3 overclocked to a clock of DDR3 2278, and better compatibility with the physical properties of DDR3 is very important
Bandwidth has increased by about 16 percent, and after the DDR3 clock is pulled up sharply, one of the key areas that AMD needs to improve in the future is bandwidth efficiency
Temperature Performance (room temperature about 26 degrees)
Standby - 5
CPU at Full Speed - 50
We have tried three A75 motherboard brands, and data showed standby temperatures of 5-18 degrees. This should be a result of C&Q power-saving technology, low voltage and low clock speed.
The temperature of the ECS board at full speed was more than 10 degrees lower than that of the previous A75.
The difference in temperature may be a result of Autumn coming on or the A75F-A temperature monitoring chip
However, the above temperature data shows the 32nm process has reached a necessary level, and temperature performance is fairly good
Power Consumption Test
Standby - 30W
CPU at Full Speed - 167W
Full speed simultaneously for the CPU and GPU - 210W
Test of the power supply with OCCT
With C & Q power-saving technology enabled and the desktop in standby and when the CPU is operating at full speed, CPU power consumption increases by 137W or so, which is very high data
The GPU increases by about 43W, and at such a high performance level for the GPU, power consumption is still within an acceptable range
Although Llano APU is now fabricated with a 32nm process, the power performance still leaves room for improvement
Internal AMD Radeon HD6550D display driver
3DMark Vantage => P5451
StreetFighter IV Benchmark
1920 X 1080 => 70.21 FPS
FINAL FANTASY XIV
1920 X 1080 => 1171
The Llano APU’s internal performance mainly depends on level of the DDR3 clock When overclocking reaches DDR3 2278, there is an approximate 23 - 30% increase in 3D performance.
In high-resolution environments, as long as the 3D game is not too demanding and not too many 3D effects are enabled, the system should be able to operate smoothly
In the past, the gap in performance with entry-level VGA display was often as much as 5 to 10 times.
In this year’s battle, the Llano APU’s 3D performance has attained almost the same level as entry-level VGA.
1. ECS has moved the BIOS to the UEFI interface, and many optional languages are available
2. CPU and DDR3 overclocking ability is good, helping improve system performance
3. PCI-E/PCI provides a sufficient and convenient number of expansions, and the A75 includes native SATA3 and USB 3.0 technology
4. Three display output interfaces are provided that together with the A8/A6 CPU provide very dazzling 3D performance
5. Heat dissipation is well implemented, and while the power is on heat sink and chipset temperature is not high
1. The visibility of sales channels and service providers can be further enhanced
2. When the CPU is overclocked to 107MHz or more only the IDE mode can be used. We hope that the BIOS can be revised

When playing a Blu-ray movie, using the previously mentioned 1080P video playback, CPU usage rose as much as 10%
The Intel internal HD2000/3000 GPU is of a comparable standard, and the new generations of the two brands can easily cope with 1080P
The A75’s six internal SATA3 mechanisms are a significant difference compared with the native USB 3.0 technology of the A55
Although the A75 is a bit more expensive than the A55, it still falls within mid-range market price points
If you want a cheaper combination, of course the A55 will save some money, but if you want outstanding specifications, we suggest you consider budgeting a little more for the A75
ECS has currently introduced three A75 motherboards, and this review is only for the A75F-A Black Series product with the ATX specification
The A75F-A has a price of about NT$2900 or less, (equivalent to a retail price of about US$84.99) which is cheaper than some other A75 ATX brands
Combining the UEFI interface, plenty of IO and ample PCI-E/PCI expansion slots as well as excellent overclocking features and more.
The A75F-A’s cost to performance value is quite good, and we hope more value-added products will be introduced for consumers to choose from
This article is windwithme’s third overclocking test of the A75, and each one provides detailed insight on performance, teaching methodology and the overclocking experience
This is provided as detailed reference for consumers who are interested in buying new platforms using the AMD Llano APU. Thanks
