Summary: This runs great. I don't game, just do some photo editing, mostly surf the net. Like that they integrated the graphics CPU from Toronto based AMD, they bought out. Quit spending your hard earned cash on Intel unless you really need to empty your wallet and go a bit faster. I never had a processor fail in 15 years either. Keep the fan running and heat sink attached. That's it!
Summary: The Good: - Cost is great if you consider the graphics card is like a Radeon HD 6450 ($30-40 GPU) while the processor is a more power efficient Athlon II quad core ($80 CPU). - Can easily play all games 2007 and before at high settings. For example Hellgate:London can easily run 40-50 frames per second at max settings and 90 frames if you disable advanced shading. As long as you disable filters and run at 720p or less, it'll run smoothly.
Summary: This CPU was purchased as a MB-CPU-RAM combo for a customer build. The customer needed dual-screen capability for photo editing and other tasks, but not gaming. This is a great product perfect for that, plus some light gaming! It worked perfectly, was easy to set up and use, affordable, and has more potential as the customer learns to use it more. If the customer is happy, I'm happy; and the customer is very happy!
Summary: I upgraded a low power AMD A4-3400 (Dual core) to the 3670K for the extra 2 cores and unlocked multiplier to allow for extra clock speed bumps while maintaining the efficient APU architecture. While it won't match Intel's i3 in computing power, the AMD APU line gets the benefits of on-die Radeon graphics. The unlocked multipler allowed me to easily bump the CPU clock to 3.1 Ghz on the stock cooler with no issues.
Summary: This is the third processor of this type I've purchased in the last month. I bought the first one (non-black edition) for my son, and was blown away by the games that he could now play. I was so pleased that I purchased this one for my daughter and could not be more pleased. I do not have a discrete graphics card installed and they are playing BF3 (medium settings), GW2 (medium settings), Star Wars: The Old Republic (low-medium settings), etc.
Summary: The CPU is way faster than what it replaced. The is used in an HTPC and does a great job with audio/video processing. Can't attest to the CPU's longevity and I do not keep the machine turned on 7x24. The ONLY downfall is that it came from Amazon. If you don't pay extra for 'expedited shipping', it takes a week just to get it out the door.
