A very good CPU with decent intergrated graphics!

Summary: For the price, I can't really complain.
Pros: Can be overclocked to be as fast as or faster than the 3870k. Came with a decent stock heat sink. Intergrated graphics are pretty good (with fast ram), though I'll be beefing mine up with an HD 6570. Runs games pretty well, can encode and edit video without too much trouble.
Cons: FM1 no longer supported. Performance isn't as good as an i7, but it's nowhere near as expensive as an i7 either.
Summary: Compared with a friends Six-Core AMD it out performed it by 500 points on PCmark7 (we both have same video cards and memory, only diff boards and processors)
Pros: Compared to my old Intel Q6600 Quad it run slightly faster overall at stock but you add the fact it's unlocked and wow, I run this with 8GB of DDR3 2400(OC) at 3.48GHz and its very fast and stable!
Cons: DO NOT USE STOCK COOLER - i was hitting 170F+ with stock cooler with 2400 memory! Bought a cheap $20 heat pipe cooler and temps never go above 120F now.
Summary: I spent quite a bit of time testing this computer, over a month and it really performed well above my expectations. I can't say enough nice things about this, but I will say that I was very impressed with the gaming performance and overall system responsiveness.
Pros: The price is a big selling point of course, but until you buy one you'll have no idea just what a great deal this is. I just finished a client build with an A75 motherboard, and I couldn't be more pleased. Last night I fired up Skyrim with the pc on a 24 inch monitor, 1080p. The game originally d...
Cons: There is only one con I've encountered. It appears there is no analog video. I have been unsuccessful at using a DVI to VGA converter to get analog video. I am going under the assumption that since the video is on die that there are no analog components on the APU. Also the motherboard does not h...
Summary: I use this for my Samsung laptop, and I have been impressed with my first AMD processor. I use Piriform Speccy to check the CPU every so often, and it always has a very high temperature, usually around 95 degrees C. I feel like my CPU is just melting, even though the fan works fine.
Pros: Good speed Runs simple 3D games very well, like Counter-Strike, Tf2, and Minecraft. Very good value
Cons: Unstable temperatures and speed Very high average temperature Very slow at random times (but restarting system usual fixes it)
Pros: This processor, like most other AMD models, runs at a lower temperature so overheating is rare even with the included heatsink. Wit the AMD vision engine control panel I was able to increase/decrease power consumption which is a very nice feature that I didn't have on my family PC rig running an ...
Cons: When trying to hybrid crossfire this model with a supported dedicated graphics card I had a little trouble getting it set up, although this isn't a downside of the processor itself, it can be a difficult process for people who don't know how to change certain BIOS settings.
Summary: 2.7GHZ quad-core, but AMD's catalyst utility will happily factory overclock to 3.2 safely. Windows 7 after boot time loads up in seconds, and shuts down in 6 seconds flat. Pairing this processor with a Radeon HD 6000 series card or in my case a 6670HD allows for dual graphics support, powering both...
Pros: Quad-core, Over-clockable by AMD Utility, APU is dual-graphics ready.
