Pretty Awesome APU

Wyatt Anderson, Amazon
24 September 2014
  • Summary: I've had this APU for a couple of months so far and is Great! it runs pretty well with most games running 720p at medium to high settings. I was able to play Battlefield 4 at 720p with medium settings and only drop a couple of frames when there was some levelution happening or big explosions.

Perfect for a media PC

Jason Rittenhouse, Amazon
18 March 2014
  • Summary: Bought this to replace the A4 that powered my media PC. The cheap A4 was great at streaming 1080p video off the internet but couldn't cut it when it came to higher bit-rate bluray rips. This A8 handles any media I throw at it and stays nice and cool in the process. It has no problem with 20mbps video files.

Great but could be a better price

SG, Amazon
18 March 2014
  • Summary: This is a great APU. The iGpu works well, I am able to play Crysis one no problem at a decent frame rate with the right settings. I wasn't expecting this system to perform that well. As for the CPU side of things, it is decent. Windows 7 will run alright if you keep it running light. With added bloat this CPU struggles a little. Honestly, when I bought this I was expecting the CPU to be better and the iGpu to be worse.

Good chip

Joefuss, Amazon

  • Summary: For a 65w apu... lthis one really rocks. Just make sure to throw in some nice ddr3-1866 ram, and use the latest final AMD video drivers, and if possible go with windows 8.1, this chip LOVES 8.1. Very impressed with the speed overall.

Great low end HTPC cpu

RcketScientist, Amazon
20 January 2014
  • Summary: I bought this to run a new HTPC. I was new to HTPC and set up a Plex server. Initially this guy ran great when I was watching movies internally. Then I started sharing my library with family and it would stutter while trying to transcode to a remote site and play 1080p locally. The server is running a plethora of services as well as the theater oriented stuff so to be fair I wasn't surprised. Transcoding can be pretty hard on a cpu.
