Foxconn A75A review

4. Benchmarks

Here is our system set up:

- Motherboard: Foxconn A75A with P05 BIOS
- CPU: AMD A8 3850 retail
- CPU Cooler: AMD Stock
- Memory: Crucial Ballistix DDR3 PC3-17000 (BL2KIT25664FN2139)
- VGA: Gigabyte GT-430 (Nvidia Based) / On board
- HDD: WD 5001ALLS (500GB, 7200rpm Black Scorpio series) + Seagate 7200.12 500GB
- OS: Windows 7 x64 SP1 with all the latest updates installed
- VGA driver: Nvidia 275.33 x64 drivers

The Foxconn A75A came with P01 bios installed, which we updated to the latest P05. Since they were not any tools integrated into the BIOS for flashing it, we had to boot in DOS mode and launch flash.bat file.

Our system recognized the installed AMD A8-3850 CPU and the core voltage was set to 1.056V. The motherboard doesn't allow any kind of overclocking so you are stack with the CPU's nominal 2.90GHz:

The CPU-Z didn't give us any information about the memory speed, but we suspect it runs at 1066MHz. That's rather disappointing since the motherboard was supposed to run at 1866MHz, which our memory supports:

Below you see the performance results of the Foxconn A75A motherboard paired with an AMD A8 3850 CPU, compared with other systems. It seems that the AMD A8-3850 is slower than an AMD Phenom II X4 955 processor:

Compared with other systems we have already tested, the A75A scores lower and it seems that the system doesn't get much help from the memory performance, giving a poor 6.83MB/sec result in the Sandra memory test.
