Benchmark: Overclocked Richland A10-6800K APU on Fedora 22 with AMD Catalyst/fglrx 15.7

I just thought I’d report that, on a machine with the following specs:

  • Richland 4.1 GHz A10-6800K APU
    • [GPU Overclocked to 1050 MHz, Standard Voltage]
    • Corsair H80 Cooling System
  • Fedora 22 KDE Spin
    • Kernel Version: 4.1.6-200.fc22.x86_64
  • AMD Catalyst/fglrx Driver Version 15.7

I obtained 62.9 FPS on the video stress test in Half-Life 2: The Lost Coast with the following settings:

  • Resolution: 1920×1080
  • Model Detail: Medium
  • Texture Detail: Medium
  • Shader Detail: High
  • Water Detail: Reflect All
  • Shadow Detail: Medium
  • Color Correction: Enabled
  • Anti-Aliasing: None
  • Filtering: Bilinear
  • Vertical Sync: Disabled
  • Motion Blur: Enabled
  • Field of View: 75
  • Multi-Core Rendering: Enabled
  • High Dynamic Range: Full (if available)

It was silky smooth, even during action and large rendering requirements, and the APU temperature never exceeded 37 degrees Celsius (max for the processor appears to be 74 degrees Celsius per my recollection and this guy).

So I think those are roughly the settings to copy for CS:GO or L4D2.

    How are you measuring the temperature? I’m running a10-6800k with mythbuntu 14.04 and cannot find a temp sensor app that is accurate.
