Summary: Really surprised at the graphical capabilities. I used it to make a light gaming rig for my daughter. It has handle everything I've thrown at it including 3D games at low to moderate settings. Runs HD video with no problems. Was also surprised it's rated at 65w. I was able to buy a lower wattage, higher quality power supply for the rig.
Summary: I would recommend this APU if you are looking to build an HTPC capable of gaming (on a TV using Steam Big Picture) in a small case. It is perfect for that purpose. I used this APU instead of the 5800K because of its 65W TDP, as heat is a huge concern in these small cases. With this build I have a pretty quiet HTPC with very good performance, I can watch Blurays/DVDs and online streams (Netflix, MLB.tv, Youtube, etc) without any issues.
Summary: I ordered this on a gamble and it ended up working wonderfully. On HP's website they state that the model of AllInOne I purchased only goes up to an A8. This CPU along with the Zalman CNPS 8900 Extreme heatsink produces high frame rates in MassEffect 3 and DeadSpace 2 on max settings at 1080P. I had to cut a hole into the back plastic of the All in One to get the 60MM cooler to fit, but the performance out weighs the ugliness on the back.
Summary: This is really impressive to me- This A10 series is taking integrated graphics to a new level. With just this APU & no graphics card, I'm able to do everything I need to do with a computer, and then watch HD Blu-ray discs, and play Super Street Fighter IV AE at default settings, with no visible performance hits in any of these situations. And I still have the option of adding an HD 6670 graphics card for Dual Graphics, or even a more powerful, discrete PCI-E card.
Summary: I purchased this processor because of its perfect price, performance, and efficiency. I wanted a low energy consumption processor to power a home server running several virtual machines. Right now, the processor is running 8 virtual machines without running into any performance issues.
Summary: Overall it had all of the key items I was looking for in a processor. Good graphics mixed with a quad core processor all in one design. The lower power requirements of a media center rig made this my number one pick for the money. I would go next time with the 5800 and just down clock it if I had to do it again.. Still a great processor for the money.
Summary: Since this is not readily available back in my country, I ordered this from Amazon. Other than the flimsy paper box compared to the nice tin boxes for A10-5800K and awful packaging, this cpu does as it advertised. Locked multiplier and limited overclockability but in most way comparable to a 5800K at lesser power consumption. Definitely something to look at for building a low-end Windows PC and plug to a TV for gaming and video.
