HyperPi is a front end for SuperPi that allows for multiple concurrent instances of SuperPi to be run on each core recognized by the system. It is very dependent on CPU to memory to HDD speed. The faster these components, the faster it is able to figure out the number Pi to the selected length.
For our testing we use the 32M run. This means that each of the four physical and four logical cores for the i7 and the four physical cores of the i5 is trying to calculate the number Pi out to 32 million decimal places. Each "run" is a comparative to ensure accuracy and any stability or performance issues in the loop mentioned above will cause errors in calculation.
Looking at HyperPi performance, we can see that out of the box our A75-GM55 lines up just as we'd hope with our other motherboards. Overclocking our A8-3850 to 3.5GHz yields a nice boost in performance and you see we're able to come in at under 20 minutes for a 32M run.

AutoGK stands for Auto Gordian Knot; it is a suite of transcoding tools that are compiled into an easy to install and use utility. It allows you to transcode non-protected DVDs and other media to Xvid or Divx format. For our testing purposes we use a non-DRM restricted movie that is roughly 2 hours in length. This is transcoded to a single Xvid AVI at 100% quality.
We can also see under AutoGK that performance at stock continues to line up with our motherboard. Again we can also see that overclocking yields a nice boost in performance and brings our encode time in line with the 990X / X6 1100T platform from AMD.
