Great option for solid all-around performance without spending too much
4 weeks ago
Summary: Great performance on a budget. I needed a new computer about 14 months ago and decided on an AMD APU build and I've been very happy with it. I run Windows 8.1 on the machine and have had nothing but superbly stable performance from this chip.
Summary: I got this on sale for $89.99. It was the first CPU I've ever replaced on my own. It was pretty easy. As I've read in other reviews, it does run rather hot but I've had it going for about 4 hours so far and it seems to be working fine.
Summary: This is an older 2nd-generation (Trinity) APU with Radeon HD 7660D graphics, not the new 3rd-generation Kaveri chip with R7 graphics, so don't expect to run cutting-edge games unless you add a separate discrete GPU card. But it's an excellent price vs. performance choice for general computing.
Summary: Got this APU for my build as for the price to performance ration is great. The integrated graphics are better than their Intel counterparts. On that note the on-board graphics are not a replacement for a GPU by any means.
Summary: my friend wanted to play skyrim without a graphics card. basically it wasn't in their budget and wanted the ability to upgrade to a nice graphics card later. I was blown away at the abilities of this little gem. definitely recommended...
Summary: Has the speed for gaming and all functions anyone needs to get the job done. I have used AMD for all my needs and dropped Intel because AMD is equal in quality and performance at far less cost.
Summary: Bought this for my mobile rig and couldn't be more happy with it. Great stock clock speed with intergraded graphics that are far more superior over Intel's HD graphics. I would recommend pairing it with 8 GBs or more of 1866MHz RAM and set the shared memory to 2GBs (average VRAM for dedicated cards)...
Summary: I have used A-Series AMD chips to keep the cost of a build down buy using the on board video, but this one came out differently. The owner asked for a bit more of everything. She ended up with this A-10 on a MSI A88 board with 8 gig of AMD Radian ram and a Kingston SSD. WOW what a combination!!
