Best processor I've bought.
8 July 2014
Summary: Put it in my budget gaming rig, works great, no problems, compatible with everything so far, and runs games like Skyrim, Arma 2, and other, modern games, on ultra settings. Haven't put it through Crysis yet, but I'm confident it can take it easily. Built 2 gaming computers, owned 3 others, and this is the best I've had it so far.
Summary: I purchased this CPS to do an economy rebuild of a PC for my office. I wanted to run Windows 7 64-bit and the old system could not handle it. This processor installed fast and easy and so far, it's worked great. It's not a blazing fast product, but it's fast enough for my needs and was very inexpensive.
Really, the best bang for the average persons Buck

Summary: Great APU That is a cpu and a gpu in one chip? That is a good starting point for the average person using a computer. Most people only need to check the WEB, Email, Shop, Social media, average stuff, This is what most people need for the Money you can not beat it. If you play high end gaming, or do high end video editing, then you need something else and also a bigger bunch of CASH. You really will have a hard time to get a better Bang for your buck.
Summary: I decided to purchase this apu based on my experience with a laptop using the mobile version of this same chip. It played WoW decent on low-medium settings and Kotor. So I assumed that if I installed a dedicated graphics card enable the crossfire it would give me a somewhat decent gaming experience. I was wrong. I have it crossfired with a radeon 6770 and it doesnt play Rift decent on low-medium settings in just questing areas.
Summary: Based a replacement system on this CPU, it replaced a P4 HT 3.06GHz based system, nice performance improvement as would be expected. Replacement system is not used for games - just basic word processing, spreadsheets, web browsing, and the like - works great for these functions. So if building a budget system this CPU is a reasonable choice to base the system on.
Summary: iam not sure whats better or whats choking my gaming speed or could be both its a good working cpu that came with a bundle for a budget build computer but i wouldn't mind passing it on to someone thats just starting to get into computer
Summary: One really great thing about this APU (CPU & GPU) is that it overclocks fairly well for a low cost piece of hardware. My first experience with this little guy was in an OEM machine which, of course, had a locked bios to prevent overclocking. However, with the AMD software/drivers available for download on their site (currently version 13.4 of Catalyst/Vision control center), you can use AMD's OverDrive software to allow for overclocking via software.
Summary: Processor does a fine job for the price. I run Windows 8 and use a separate GPU. So there is not a lot of stress on the processor. The fan that comes with the heat sink is very loud. It almost sounds like a small vacuum cleaner.
