Summary: I have been an AMD fan since the K6. This processor sits in my Linux box and it rocks. Is it a Sandy Bridge chip,no. But it certainly gives the user great bang for the buck and is more the capable of most any task most users will throw at it.
Summary: can't get much better than this for 6 cores for the price point. it runs very well and processes very well too for the price. Save the extra $100 over an intel chip and use it for something else.
Summary: I have seen reviews slamming these chips because of benchmark results. I upgraded from and overclocked triple core and this chip converts video at least 5 times as fast. Everything I throw at this, from a relatively normal user, is smooth and fast, virtually instant.
Summary: I upgraded from an AMD black edition quad core and the difference was immediately noticeable. Had a problem where Deus Ex: Human Revolution would restart my computer and/or give me a BSoD on startup, and after doing a little research I found that it was some kind of hardware conflict with AMD...
Summary: Fast and powerful CPU. Good for graphics and video intensive operations. Dual and quad core Phenom processors process 78MB image files in approx. 15 - 5 seconds respectively. Same files are processed in a short fraction of a second with this processor.
Summary: I ordered this AMD 6 core CPU as it was at an exceptionally special offer low price. AMD also had a £15 cash back which was credited directly into my bank account, so I got an unbelievably great deal.
Summary: I don't do a lot of gaming on my PC. I use it mostly with AVS4YOU converter software which is for manipulating video, photo & music files. I should mention that the AVS software is VERY hungry on CPU power & will almost always max out any CPU that is running it.
Summary: Great value CPU but doesn't work with gigabyte 990xa-ud3! Despite being AM3+ I tried everything but wouldn't boot. Took to shop and they said it was an issue with board, flashed BIOS but still no good. Sent back and got Asus 990 fx chipset board which works fine.
Summary: This cpu has had much hate lately due to the fact of ti "not being good for gaming" I have had this CPU for a little while and it seems to be fine witrh my system and is brilliant for overclocking runs at 4.5ghz at about 30 with a hydro series H60 going at the same time and I also render videos with...
