Great APU, Cooler Needs Work

Garrett, Amazon
5 March 2014
  • Summary: I bought this chip for a cheap work build as a software engineer that could do some lower-end gaming and this chip really produces much better results than I thought. I can run many games with much higher settings than I assumed without any hiccups.

Not too bad

  • Summary: Decent performance for a general computing, office, or personal PC build. I would not recommend this if you are a gamer, but for day to day, it's fine.

Liking the CPU, but why the cheap heat sink and fan AMD?

gqwincy, Amazon
25 November 2013
  • Summary: I love this CPU it has everything I need except for cool air. The heat sink is just a piece of aluminum with no copper base, and the fan is below par. I would give this 5 stars, but the heat sink/fan combo AMD slapped together is junk.

Great CPU

strausd, Amazon

  • Summary: For the price, AMD produces some great products. They aren't always the most powerful or the most energy efficient. But for certain uses, their products make the most sense. In terms of this CPU, it was a perfect choice for a small HTPC.

  • Summary: This is a good APU if you wanted to build a budget gaming system for now and upgrade to dual or dedicated graphics later. I haven't tried more taxing games like BioShock Infinite or Crysis 3 yet, I don't believe Metro Last Light will run on this IGP, but GRID2, BF3, and Simcity run fine at medium...
  • Pros: Good budget APU, Very capable integrated graphics
  • Cons: Runs hot at load

Great APU

bilbo, Amazon

  • Summary: I love the performance, although i dont use it for gaming. I do have multiple virtual machines running and it works great. I think the only thing i dont like is the noisy fan that come with it. I should have bought another fan...but thats it....I definately do recommend this APU.

Solid processor. Linux drivers need serious work.

herrdoktor330, Amazon
14 April 2013
  • Summary: WARNING: This review is very Linux-centric. If you're using Windows, This processor is A-OK. Buy it. TL:DR: The Linux Video Driver sucked. It doesn't now. Buy it. What I like: The price is right. You get decent 3D graphics and a workable CPU for a (relative) small amount of money.
