Testing Memory Speeds on AMD's A8-3850 Llano APU

Legit Reviews has posted the results of their tests with different memory speeds on AMD's A8-3850 Llano APU. The results are rather interesting, I think you'll want to check this one out. For those of you that haven't seen it, our Llano Fusion A Series coverage can be found here.

We found that the memory bandwidth ranges from 13GB/s to 16GB/s with typical dual channel memory kits on our AMD A8-3850 APU and Gigabyte A75-UD4H motherboard. This difference doesn't sound that great, but a 3GB/s increase when dealing with 13GB is a very nice 23% performance increase. Most of this performance gain is seen when moving up from a 1333Mhz to a 1600MHz memory kit is where you'll see the largest performance jump.
