For the AMD A4-3400 Accelerated Processing Unit, beating Intel’s Core™ i3 2100 in benchmark after benchmark is one thing...1
- 60% less price
- 114% better performance on 3DMark Vantage benchmark
- 213% better performance on Cinebench Open GL benchmark
- 115% better performance playing Lost Planet
- 120% better performance playing Left4Dead2
But winning over the paying customer is the ultimate goal for AMD’s groundbreaking Accelerated Processing Unit. That’s why it’s so gratifying to hear the positive feedback from APU owners on leading tech marketplace sites like NewEgg.com, volunteering their real world observations of the AMD A4-3400 APU1.

You’ll find some consistent elements running throughout the commentary: a plethora of 5 out of 5 scores, a dearth of negative observations, appreciation for the energy efficiency and cool, quiet fan and—above all—amazement in regards to the performance per price.
APU = CPU + GPU = Heterogeneous Computing
The AMD A4-3400 APU’s recent benchmark wins and highly favorable customer feedback combine to validate the power and potential of heterogeneous computing. Heterogeneous computing brings together the best of both CPUs and GPUs to drive faster, more powerful user experiences.
AMD’s revolutionary APU architecture combines both CPU and GPU on a single chip...a heterogeneous system that allows for a multi-GPU configuration in which a discrete GPU can be added to the chip design, adding even more graphics processing power. The APU continues to utilize a CPU to run the operating system and most traditional PC productivity applications, but the system can scale as needed depending on application demands, harnessing all available resources and enabling unprecedented performance.
