Out of sight

George Crofts, Amazon

  • 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.

Great Combo if you want good integrated graphics on a budget.

  • Summary: Purchased for my daughter for... basically a Minecraft PC. Super cheap build and works great! Paired with a $50 mobo and a spare HDD and DVD burner I completed her build for under $400!

Great for a basic machine

Bryan Embley, Amazon
25 October 2013
  • 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.

Very nice APU for the price!

Duff123, Amazon

  • 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.

Great value, performs as expected.

  • 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

Billy, Amazon
20 February 2013
  • 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.

A trouble-free, budget APU.

  • Summary: I was looking to upgrade my Athlon 64 939 and this fit the bill, with change to spare. It works well in the MSI A55M board that I purchased for it.
