Summary: I have had this awhile and so far no problems thought amd has made better cpus it's not expensive and so far i have had no issues my game run smooth and i don't lag as much as most with games like swtor or sl
Summary: I feel like i wasted $110.00 on this. It works fine but an AMD tri-core processor would have done just as well by me. This is actually slower for some of the programs i use on a computer. I will always be an AMD fan, but i feel they let me and others down with this processor.
Summary: THIS PROC IS NOT WHAT I EXPECTED, IF YOU ARE TRYING TO GET A GOD AMD-BASED BUDGET GAMING PC, YOU BETTER OFF GO WITH THE PHENOM II X6 1100T PROC, IT PERFORMS SLIGHTLY BETTER THAN THIS! AND JUST A TIP, DO NOT SPARE SOME DOLLARS WITH THE MOTHERBOARD, I DID IT AND NOW I REGRET IT!!
Summary: I bought this CPU as an upgrade to my PC as I also needed to upgrade the Motherboard. Now AMD has been pushing this Bulldozer style platform for awhile now and to give the quick rundown of what it is. Basically AMD is trying to join the Hyper-threading Market, a system used by Intel's i3, i5 and i7 CPUs. Basically what hyper-threading does is "trick" the computer into thinking it has more threads to perform its duty.
Summary: Using this with a Radeon 7850 and it bottlenecks almost every game except BF3. You will get 90-95% gpu usage with this in many games. However it can be overclocked on air cooling to ~4.3Ghz with a good cooler. [The stock cooler sucks btw] to improve your GPU usage. You can pair this processor with a low end gpu. But if you are going for a really good GPU do yourselves a favor and go for the piledriver based AMD CPU's or any Intel alternative.
Good but if u r hardcore gamer wanna play all the latest games!!! think again

Summary: Please check if you MB contains latest bios, latest i mean 2012 bios because certain games(Saints row 3, Darkness 2 to list a few) wont work with the architecture of this CPU by online research i found out that latest bios of your MB may solve this issue some say windows 8 is most suitable for this cpu but its not out yet so cant say. Its up to u whether to buy or not. i say w8 for next crop of cpus from AMD or go with intel.
Summary: J'ai acheté ce processeur pour un second ordinateur sur lequel je fais tourner quelques machines virtuelles. Le multicœur n'apporte rien dans ce cas de figure. Performances en deçà d'un I3, ventilateur extrêmement bruyant et chauffe beaucoup. On en a pour son argent, mais pas plus.
Summary: 3 Sterne für den guten Preis, aber.. ich bin sehr enttäuscht über diesen Prozessor. Spiele wie DayZ & World of Warcraft können nicht die volle Power nutzen, weil diese nur 4-Kerne unterstützen. Somit hat man deutlich weniger FPS als mit einem Intel i5, z.B. in dem Spiel DayZ (ARMA 2 Mod) hat man bei viel aufkommen nur geruckel, was ich nicht haben will.
