Cheap for it's awesomeness

Feiku, Amazon
25 November 2014
  • Summary: Once you figure out how to use an nvidia card without it crashing your bios on start up, then it's awesome. The onboard card isn't bad either. Temperatures were high which startled me but realized later that's just how these CPU's work, and bought a 10 dollar fan that brought it down significantly. I didn't try the duel capabilities because I don't like AMD video cards (bad experience in the past..) and I only use Nvidia.

don't waste your money on anything else

JimmyU, Amazon
18 November 2014
  • Summary: If building a computer for anything shy of heavy gaming, heavy video editing, or 3d modelling/animation, don't waste your money on anything else. I used this processor in a build for a second computer for simple internet use but since I am not a gamer and have my work computer for editing large video files, I sold off the majority of my one year old $1100 build and bought: - 2nd ssd - 16gb of ram - this processor - a $60 amd board ...

Excellent bang for the buck for HTPC build

Tim M (Spokane WA), Amazon
9 November 2014
  • Summary: Upgraded an aging AM2+ dual core based HTPC wtih this APU with some more RAM (4GB to 8GB), and decent mATX mobo (Gigabyte GA-F2A78M-D3H). Had a discreet GPU with the old system - I allocated 2GB to the integrated GPU (8 total), and so far the hardware upgrade has been flawless. Streams Netflix and Prime videos nicely, plays DVDs / BluRays without any issues. I have not done any gaming on it, but I'm sure it could handle quite a bit of "fun" stuff should the need arise.

Great Chip

Jerry Palmerino Jr, Amazon
4 November 2014
  • Summary: At this point in time, this CPU is now a generation old. AMD has released the new Kaveri core earlier this year. I built my PC with this chip and I am very happy with it. I put this on the Gigabyte GA-F2A85X-UP4 motherboard with a Coolermaster Gemini CPU cooling fan and 8GB of DDR3 1600 RAM. It is my everyday PC and the benchmarks are in-line with basic day-to-day tasks. On Geekbench 3, this CPU scored 2172 Single core and 3322 Multicore on the Windows 64bit benchmarks.

Holy cat

José Silva, Amazon
4 November 2014
  • Summary: All I can say is OMG. I wasn't expecting anything special out of this cheap APU but boy I was seriously surprised once I tried some 720p gaming on it. Running heavily modded skyrim at 25-30fps on max settings. TERA online runs smooth at max settings (when not surrounded by 7736492 players at cities). Get some cheap high-speed ram and you're good to go. I'm running it at 4.5ghz cpu and 1145mhz gpu at 1.3v stable using stock cooler with no dangerously high temps.

It's a great processor, combined with great graphics

Torrey Frederick, Amazon
25 September 2014
  • Summary: What more can I say? It's a great processor, combined with great graphics. It was an excellent CPU for the media center PC I built. More than adequate for video watching, it's even great for playing games. For the price, you can't beat it.

performance price effective processor

jf, Amazon
21 September 2014
  • Summary: It is performance/cost effective processor and its overall performance is close to A8-6600K on single core measurement. It also can compete with Xeon W3530 in many complicate computations. It is specially slower than other two in FFT, but slightly faster in some 3D image processing. I lower it by 1 star due to lack of overclocking (OC) capability.

Works as Anticipated

Benjamin D. Uecker, Amazon
19 September 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this CPU for a build for a business machine running Windows 8.1. It's my first AMD chip in 7 years. Windows 8 didn't install well at all but that could be from a variety of issues. What's important is since the install the computer has ran great. While it has not been pushed to any limits I take comfort in knowing that it's 65w power consumption is much lower than any other CPU in this particular business.

An EXCELENT processor with an GREAT price!!

GLIverson, Amazon
8 September 2014
  • Summary: I installed this into my new Asus A88X-Pro Mobo and it is an Excellent Processor to be sure! This processor, in the midst of all the over priced units, stands out as being quite a performer in it's own right. It runs just over 4 GHZ without any board tweeking or boosting of voltages on auto mode: it runs smoothly, has no seeming weaknesses at all, and is an excellent buy for the money paid!! This processor is much under rated and under valued......
