Agisoft PhotoScan – 2D to 3D Image Manipulation: link

Agisoft PhotoScan creates 3D models from 2D images — a process that is very computationally expensive. The algorithm is split into four distinct phases, and different phases of the model reconstruction require either fast memory, fast IPC, more cores, or even OpenCL compute devices to achieve the best performance. Agisoft supplied us with a special version of the software to script the process, where we take 50 images of a stately home and convert it into a medium-quality model. This benchmark typically takes around 15 to 20 minutes on a high-end PC on the CPU alone, with GPUs reducing the time.

Agisoft PhotoScan Benchmark - Total Time

PhotoScan shows most APUs performing around 41 to 42 minutes, which suggests that there is a bottleneck in the core design.

Cinebench R15

Cinebench is a benchmark based around Cinema 4D, and is fairly well known among enthusiasts for stressing the CPU for a provided workload. Results are given as a score, where higher is better.

Cinebench R15 - Single Threaded

Cinebench R15 - Multi-Threaded

HandBrake v0.9.9: link

For HandBrake, we take a video (a 2h20 640x266 DVD rip) and convert it to x264 format in an MP4 container.  Results are given in terms of the frames per second processed, and HandBrake uses as many threads as possible.

    Any possibility this can run Starcraft2 on high setting at FHD?

    AMD's own internal benchmarks suggest 35fps at maximum in FHD for the A10-7870K, but I can't find anything to suggest performance of the A8-7670K.

    Oh dear anandtech where for art thou Carrizo in your tests ?
    Why is the whole tech reporting industry not using this ground breaking chip in their reviews ?
    Why is everyone running scared of AMD's A10-8700P ???

    I really appreciate the commentary on AMD. Thanks, Ian!
