Summary: As with the memory and disk, it must be working as the computer is working. Given my minimal knowledge of computers, I understand that I would not be able to do anything it the processor were not working properly.
Summary: This processor is not bad for everyday use. Upgraded from a socket LGA775. Overall, it's a much better improvement from the noise to speed. Comes with the stock fan, which at first is a bit challenging to put since I usually get Intel CPUS. However, this is a great APU for everyday or light gaming.
Summary: I used this to build a machine for myself and one for my mom. I am not a heavy gamer, but I do like to play a number of first person shooter games that require decent graphics hardware. I quickly wished I had gone with the A8 or A10. However, I have no complaint about the processor as it was I who mismatched my hardware with my tasks.
Summary: I like this APU. I ordered it as part of a HTPC build I started from scratch. I am not overclocking or doing any gaming on it. I am running Ubuntu 13.10 on this currently and it performs as expected, which is well. It is not as quick as some of the higher priced APU's/CPU's as expected, but that's not why I got it. It is not slow by any means either, is very responsive compared to other old hardware I have had, and have lying around.
Summary: A very good processor. I have this in a low-end HTPC build. It plays netflix and Hulu fine, handles internet browsing, and even does a good job at DVDFab ripping and Handbrake encoding. I never feel like processing is slow (unlike my work computer which I always notice is slow). So as long as it's doing my HTPC things smoothly I'll be happy.
While this is not a super performer it is very impressive

Summary: I ran this dual-core processor in a test system (overall cost for the system was $155) This APU has the integrated GPU and both the CPU and GPU work splendidly. Currently I have thrown Mount and Blade: Fire and Sword, Borderlands, Minecraft and Unreal Tournament 3 at the system and it can run each without too much hesitation and issues. I plan on using a quad-core version for a future build.
