The A10-5700 and the A10-5800K encompass the 2nd generation Bulldozer microarchitecture known as Piledriver. Manufactured on GlobalFoundries’ 32 nm SOI process, they support enhanced graphics ( Direct X 11.1), Integrated PCIe 2.0 controller.
- The A10-5800K is the overclockable, part that comes with 400 MHz higher base clock. Theoretically this will give you 12% better CPU performance.
- Both of them come with the same integrated graphics. In A10-5800K, the graphic is clocked slightly higher at 800 MHz ( Vs 760 MHz in the A10-5700).
- The A10-5800K is 100 Watts part while the A10-5700 is a 65 Watts part.

Some more details of A10-5700
The Trinity A10-5700 APU brings with it improve integrated graphics , better pile driver core all while keeping the power envelope in 65 Watts – at the lower end for the desktop APUs. It makes up a great processor for gaming, especially when you do not wish to spend extra bucks on graphics card. You will find it more responsive than the Intel’s Sandy Bridge. Intel’s Ivy Bridge is better, in general, in the CPU performance while still trying to catch up AMD in the graphics front.
Some more details of A10-5800K
The A10-5800K Accelerated Processing Unit is the highest performing chip in the Trinity series. It is also officially unlockable part is clocked a base frequency of 3.8 GHz ( Turbo 4.2 GHz). The Integrated graphics Radeon HD 7660D has the same number of cores as the A10-5700 but id clocked higher ( 760 MHz Vs 800 MHz). The improvements come at the cost of higher power envelope at 100 Watts. If you are looking for gaming processor and do not wish to invest in graphics card, the A10-5800K could be a better choice.
