Not for gaming unless you have discrete graphics card.
25 June 2014
Summary: Its ok if you aren't planning on playing games, Media performance is great but it can't handle too much load. It gets around 65 degrees if you use it for 4 to 6 hours or more with the stock cooler.
Summary: I got this to give my computer an edge, from my A6-5400K, giving me a minor but much need boost, while games on my original A6-5400K were stable, the loading times (Such as Sonic All Star Racing Transformed) were frozen and sometimes caused crashes, as soon as I upgraded to this A10-6700K I no longer experience lag or crashes with loading times in my games on Steam.
Summary: Upgrade from an A6-5400K to this, and what a difference. Stuttering problems are gone and comskip processing of commercials is much faster. Used to deal with fair amounts of stuttering if watching shows while one or more other shows finished recording. Previous CPU was maxing out for a few minutes during these times...not anymore! And still just 65W! Even removed the dedicated video card, a fanless ATI 6450, and went all in using the HD8670D graphics.
Summary: I initially bought a 6500 for a new HTPC that I was building. It runs Plex and I eventually started sharing my library my family. When they watch it transcodes out to their location. This plus the dozen or so other services running on the server while watching 1080p proved too much for the 6500. The 6700 isn't even phased by a heavy load of watching. I highly recommend this for high traffic HTPC.
Summary: I bought this for a work PC that I built, it does everything I want. It has absolutely no trouble completing day to day tasks such as internet browsing and Microsoft Word. I even squeeze in some video games at lunch. It plays League of Legends on 1080P @ 60FPS. AMD has Intel beat with On-Die Graphics by a lot.
Summary: For christmas this year, I decided to build a computer for my family whilst I am away for college. I've always put my trust into AMD products for home + gaming use for entry/mid level systems. And as usual, they never fail to impress me at the sheer quality and seamless framerates that the iGPU provides alone.
Summary: Pros: Inexpensive Great on-board(well on-die) GPU Stays cool I bought this CPU mainly for price-to-performance ratio. I don't do a lot of heavy gaming anymore, so the GPU is plenty fast for me. That being said Skyrim is auto-detected at High settings and plays well at that setting. Other than gaming I needed something that could push dual or even triple-monitors without purchasing a decent dedicated graphics card. This, with the right motherboard, fits the bill.
