Performance wasn't what I'd hoped

Amazon Customer, Amazon
13 November 2012
  • Summary: I bought this to build a HTPC and was hoping that I'd be able to get a SteamBox out of it as well. I didn't get a SteamBox, but I got a great HTPC. I do my Blu Ray/DVD ripping on a different computer, so this processor is just doing playback and it's handled full 1080 Blu Ray mkv rips no problem. I have overscan issues with my TV running Vista (this is relevant because of the GPU in the die). I cannot see the task bar and other edges of the screen.

Great for entry level PC's

  • Summary: This processor does "just enough" to make the basic user happy. I built a machine for a friend who only wanted to browse in the internet, watch the occasional video, and have their kids use the machine for homework and it's been more than enough power for it. Runs Windows 7 like a breeze (although the system does have 8GB of RAM installed). I wouldn't recommend it for heavy gamers or heavy multitaskers, but for casual use you don't need much more.

A Great Processor for the Everyday Windows, Linux, or Home Theatre PC Builder

  • Summary: I purchased this product in combination with a Gigabyte AMD Socket FM1 Dual Graphic Micro ATX Motherboard GA-A75M-S2V , a SAMSUNG 830 Series 2.5-Inch 64GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-7PC064B/WW , and Kingston Technology HyperX Blu 8GB 1333MHz DDR3 Non-ECC CL9 DIMM (Kit of 2) KHX1333C9D3B1K2/8G . For my standard Windows 7 application usage, I am very impressed.

Surprising little processor

AdamJ., Amazon
4 July 2014
  • Summary: I bought this processor for a budget office pc and it works a charm. I find it surprising how fast it is for its price and the on board gpu can run older games surprisingly well. Just to give you an idea what it can do. Oblivion on max 60 FPS Skyrim low - medium 40ish FPS Fallout new Vegas 60FPS I think this is a good processor for office work and non intensive home use if you are on a tight budget.

Better than most..

Simon Ferrari, Amazon
24 October 2012
  • Summary: processors of a similar price. This is really quite a neat package and woluld easily function in a HTPC. In my case it's in an HTPC case, so is a really compact system, but is used as the primary PC for my wife so it easily caters with email, browsing, some streaming and office apps. Some of the newer ones in the family as probably than bit better but are probably more power hungry.

  • Summary: Perfect for home office or a student PC. Gets a 6.3 / 7.9 on Windows 7 for calculations per second and a 6.1 for 3D performance. Although only a 4.4 for desktop performance.

Very good value product

P. J. Williams, Amazon
30 January 2012
  • Summary: This apu is a very good value package, providing graphics capability comparable to a £30-40 graphics card and processing power better than a 'stand alone' dual core processor which costs in the region of £40-50. If you add in the low power consumption of this unit it represents a very good product as a base for a quiet and efficient general or HTPC computer.

Процессор AMD A6-3500 FM1 2.1GHz, 65W, Box

  • Pros: Достоинства:, Суперское видео ядро. Call of duty mw3 идет почти на максималке. Надобности в дискретной видео карте - нет абсолютно не какой нужды, а это хорошая экомия денег. Решение от ител обошлось бы раза в 4 дороже и потребовало бы еще дискретную видео карту, а это уже совсем другая ценовая категория.
  • Cons: Недостатки:, Пока не известно что с 4ым ядром. Будет ли возможность его разблокировать, но пока и 3х хватает с избытком. Win 7x64 + 8GB RAM -самолет.
