The Trinity’s Piledriver cores are based on the same Bulldozer architecture used by the AMD FX series. The big push of the A10 series is the integrated Radeon Dual Graphics Technology combined with the AMD Turbo Core 3.0 technology. At this price point, the AMD Trinity A10-5800K is hard to beat for gaming using integrated graphics.

In their review, guru3D introduced this motherboard as MSI FM2 A85XA-G65 locked and loaded:

You pick up the motherboard, APU, some memory, PSU, a HDD/SSD and literally you already have formed a perfectly fine PC that offers decent performance but most of all, and here we go again, features … I mean you can drive three monitors with a motherboard like this, included is HDMI, DisplayPort, DVI and DSUB VGA. Audio wise you got your 8-channel Realtek based sound, Ethernet wise a nice Gigabit RJ-45 is present and then you’ll spot USB 3.0 and a near silly eight SATA3 ports, which we tested and they manage 500 MB/sec easily.
