It's performing much lower than it should. I have already RMA'ed the A10 and tested it again with the same results. I have contacted MSI and they said to ask AMD Though I believe it may be a bios problem on their side. here are the scores of the a8 and a10

I notice that the support site does list 11.3 as the current. Which would think that you are good.

Also I would think that on a A55/60 would perform about the same, but not like what you describe, doesn't support that. While A75 or A85 boards would be a better fit for a Richland chip.

Just a hunch and for the A10-6800K -  Could you get into the BIOS and set the memory frequency to 1,600 MHz.  Then retest

On paper the A10-6800's GPU has twice the power of an A8-5600K, but I would like to see some numbers from game benchmarks as opposed to the garbage that is 3DMark as well as if you have a 64 or 32 bit OS and how many RAM modules you are using as well as their capacity.

Also, unless I was looking at another revision, that motherboard only supports up to 2133MHz RAM.
