Looking at gaming performance you can see when we're not under the most intense pressure our A10-5800K setup lags. This can be seen under the 3DMark 11 Performance preset and at 1680 x 1050 and 1920 x 1200 when looking at Metro 2033 performance.

 

Overclocking sees a boost in these numbers, but also when we move onto higher resolutions, performance between the setups become quite minimal.
