AMD Athlon X4-845 Carrizo Processor Review

CPU Benchmarks – Ashes of the Singularity, Cinebench, Handbrake, WPrime and WinRAR

Ashes of the Singularity

The new Ashes of the Singularity CPU benchmark absolutely hammers CPUs and it’s able to thoroughly test multi-core performance. While this is an extreme benchmark, the results are fascinating and help us to distinguish between various tiers of processors. At stock values, the AMD X4-845 just edges the A10-7850K although both products struggle to complete the strenuous benchmark. Even though the overclocking headroom is small, a boost in performance can be seen.

Cinebench R15

The CPU at its stock configuration is capable of outputting very good Cinebench scores and easily defeats the G3200 in multi-threaded benchmarking. On another note, the performance is remarkably similar to the A10-7850K. Overclocking the X4-845 enhances the both the single-threaded and multi-threaded performance rather well.


When transcoding a large 4K video file, the AMD X4-845 completed the task in a relatively impressive time considering its target audience. Saying that, it was slower than the A10-7850K when using its base frequency. Thankfully, overclocking helps matters and allows the CPU to fare better compared to the competition.


The AMD X4-845 does remarkably well throughout the WPrime benchmark and the calculation time is much quicker than the A10-7850K. As you can see, overclocking extends this lead even further and it’s another strong showing.


Sadly, the processor doesn’t handle WinRAR compression very well and posts disappointing numbers.
