The AMD A8-3800 is a processor with an integrated graphics unit (iGPU) that was released in the third quarter of 2011 by the Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) company. It is based on the Llano architecture and has a 4.00 megabyte level 3 cache. It is a 64-bit processor that supports the ISA extensions SSE3 and SSE4a. The processor is manufactured with a structure width of 32 nanometers and is designed for the FM1 socket.

The AMD A8-3800 is a quad-core processor, i.e. a processor with 4 physical cores. Hyperthreading is not supported by the AMD A8-3800, so it stays with 4 threads. The individual cores have a base clock frequency of 2.40 gigahertz. However, the processor also has a turbo mode in which the cores can increase the clock frequency to up to 2.70 gigahertz. Furthermore, the AMD A8-3800 has a free multiplier, which can be used to exceed it. However, special cooling is then required for this, and a standard fan is then no longer sufficient to cool the processor sufficiently.

In the processor benchmark Geekbench 5, the AMD A8-3800 achieves a single-core score of 368 and is thus on a par with the Intel Pentium E5400 released in 2009. The multi-core score is 1354 points, which is about as fast as a 2012 Intel Core i3-3220.

The AMD Radeon HD 6550D is used as the internal graphics unit. This iGPU clocks at 0.6 gigahertz and has 5 execution units. With this, the graphics processor achieves an FP32 computing power of 450 gigaflops.

The TDP of the processor is 65 watts and DDR3-1600 modules can be connected as main memory via the 2 available memory channels. Memory with automatic error correction (ECC memory) is not supported.
