  • Summary: It runs my games good and fast. You might need to get a dedicated graphics card later on, but this is a GREAT starter.

  • Summary: Solid chip, my first AMD chip and I have no problems with it whatsoever. Mine is 24/7 ROCK STABLE at 4.4GHZ giving it 1.46V which is 0.15 volts shy of its "max safe range" of voltage (1.475). I don't have the IGP overclocked as I got a 7770HD for really cheap, so I threw that in there. But I am assuming OCing the IGP will take away the CPU OCing capabilities as they share resources and current and all that.
  • Pros: -Great chip on a budget, -IGP is more powerful than you think, -High clock means this chip handles tasks pretty fast.
  • Cons: The 4MB cache is a bit disappointing in a flagship model. I hope they will improve their design to increase L1/2 caches, which highly benefit games and big programs., -Runs hot on stock cooler. Stock cooler really sucks. I would suggest buying a decent cooler for longer lifespan or heck, get a nice cooler and OC it a bit.

Fast, and decent as an APU (at the time of purchase)

  • Summary: Ran AAA title games at ~30 fps. Runs Photoshop fine / After Effects seems a bit slow but whatever. It's also a bit hot. 50° - 60° Celsius with an aftermarker cooler. Ended up purchasing a R9 270x, I believe I get a little bottlenecking, but can't be certain. Seems to run 95% out of it's full capable performance. Dont quote me on that. --If you do plan on purchasing a GPU with a CPU, get an i3.

Seems to overheat (Updated)

Teddy, Amazon

  • Summary: Now, before I start this review I will say I've worked with entirely Intel processors so I could be doing something wrong. I ordered this processor for a family member's build, they mostly just play internet games or minecraft (they're 7 and 9 years old) so I didn't want it to cost too much. I put everything together, turned the PC on and started setting it up. A while later I was curious on temps so I downloaded HWMonitor and noticed it was spiking to 70C.

Very good value.

Phillip Ryman, Amazon
16 December 2013
  • Summary: This APU is a very good value, especially now with the 6800k out for up to $50 more. Pros: This is a good value for the money. Consider that it's a little better for some programs than the lower end i3 chips that cost the same amount. The GPU built onto the die is more powerful than I was expecting. If you play Source games like Portal 2, Team Fortress 2, or Garry's Mod, expect to get above 60 fps consistently.

  • Summary: Running on a A85XA motherboard with a 660tf oc and 16gb ddr3 2133 windows 8 pro, max out Crysis 3 with no issues 40-75fps constant. Have had the CPU lock up a few times it does not like volts much but thats it problem not mine
  • Pros: Runs great Got it at 4.75ghz on a Seidon Cooler. Games great though with added GPU and DDR3 2133. Highly Recommend
  • Cons: Hot these F'ers get hot real hot when OCing. They do not OC well at all but are fun and great for a low cost gaming rig

bought for an HTPC

nick s, Amazon
21 March 2013
  • Summary: I bought this to put in an HTPC, mainly because I didn't want to have to buy a separate graphics card. The built in GPU works great with my MSI motherboard and runs plenty fast for my HTPC that has a dual dvr tuner the only negative is that it would be faster, but then again it's low power which offsets that
