AMD All The Way!

Wesley, Amazon
14 March 2016
  • Summary: This CPU/GPU is an awesome alternative to Intel CPUs. It is important to note the increased power consumption vs Intel products. Looking at the AMD A10 6800k alone, I absolutely love the flexibility the processor offers when it comes to applications and video processing.

A great buy for my pocket!

Johnathan A., Newegg
26 January 2016
  • Summary: I recommend at least reapplying the coating on the heatsink before use.
  • Pros: The Quad Core does quite a good job on me being able to play a lot of higher-end games that I normally wouldn't be able to do. It does a lot better job than my older computer to say the least! I haven't had any real issues with it all things considered. The heatsink provided with it also does a g...
  • Cons: Upon first use, it does a good job. However, the paste on the heatsink needed to be replaced, as I noticed it wasn't keeping my CPU cooled It also had some prior bubbling after the shipping, but I did overlook it. After adding the coating for the heatsink, it did a much better job and reduced the...

Good for some games.

Anonymous, Newegg
12 October 2015
  • Summary: I think for the price, this is GREAT for beginning gamers. But if you want to get into new, more intensive games, you will want something a bit better (FX series) As for the graphics, anything more than Minecraft vanilla, you will want a dedicated GPU.
  • Pros: CPU is good for Minecraft or games equally intensive Graphics are OK.... but not great Motherboards are cheap Overclockable
  • Cons: If you are looking to upgrade graphics later (which I did, to an R9 270X) you may have bottlenecks. CPU is not great for more intensive tasks (video editing, games like ARK: Survival Evolved)

Works - price/performance

Eric B., Newegg
15 August 2015
  • Summary: I bought it for daily use, but I need to upgrade for video editing and gaming. Served me well for what it was.
  • Pros: It works - Not DOA - But everyone expects it to work Price/performance ratio is spot on for an htpc or low performance gaming
  • Cons: Hot - if used in an htpc, you need a more expensive heatsink to make sure it doesn't overheat, but it's expected with such a high tdp Per core performance is way worse than even the g3258 - not for gaming with dedicated graphics - it bottlenecks most gpus that are more than $100

low power apu

Anonymous, Newegg
29 May 2015
  • Pros: cheap high clockspeeds apu can crossfire with a dedicated gpu easy OC Turbo is fast surprisingly good preformance on games like war thunder, civ 5, Team Fortress 2, Minecraft, portal and a few others. mostly hovered around 50-60 fps without a gpu.
  • Cons: HOT using stock cooler and had to underclock thats probably becuse i am extremly paranoid about cpu temps (first build)

Ok does what it's supposed to

Jeffery S., Newegg
16 May 2015
  • Pros: It does what it's supposed to do. I get 24 fps on warthunder with lows in the teens. World of tanks I get 20-22, those are pretty much all I play and no overclocks lol.
  • Cons: None so far

I would like to add a larger fan and heat sink

John, Amazon
30 April 2015
  • Summary: I am having a problem with heat. The warranty state that you void the warranty if you do not use the fan and heat sink supplied. I would like to add a larger fan and heat sink.

Not fully turbo but still even faster

Anonymous, Newegg
14 April 2015
  • Summary: Unless AMD can improve upon delivering more processing power with less heat, then you might want to get an aftermarket cooler, preferably with liquid cooling. The Dual-Graphics thing is still fairly new to me, but it did improve framerates in Saints Row IV and in some Source Engine games.
  • Pros: Four cores, 4.1 GHz apiece, and being that it's "black edition" makes it more than likely that you can push the limits on it some more. This processor actually teamed up with my ASUS R7-250 video card and created a Dual Graphics configuration out of it.
  • Cons: Not once does it want to stay in its turbo frequency for longer than 30 seconds before the fans kick on. It doesn't even get to the rated turbo frequency on all of its cores.
