2 out of 5 eggsI want to like this

Pros: Its an APU.

Cons: I bought this cpu for a build im doing for a friend. To keep costs down I decided to go with an APU and give him space that he could add a graphics card for duel graphics or just go higher end his choice. Got the system built and installed windows and all drivers done. I restart the system after it being on for about an hour and a half to enter the Bios to set timings on the memory and make sure things are configured right. THIS is were the major issues comes in I notice that after the computer running for an hour and say 45 min with a few restarts in that time for updates the cpu is reading 60c at idle in the bios screen. I shut the system off and let it cool down a bit in the mean time i recheck to make sure i had installed the stock heat sink and fan properly , I did and yes i know they are not the best. I turn the system on again this time I install some known high end software to monitor temps just to make sure it wasnt a glitch in the bios and I get pretty much the same temps within a degree or two. I shut down again uninstall the heat sink and fan and remove the cpu check to make sure there nothing physically wrong with that pins heatshield ect. I clean off the stock thermal compound and use my own again a very well known brand to see if it helps at all it does a very small margin at idle im now running 57c which in my eyes is still way to hot. Im scared to even think of my friend fire up a game it could cause it to melt down. I now have on order concealed push pull closed loop 120mm liquid cooler to see if this corrects the issue.

Other Thoughts: I may have gotten a bad cpu , iv built alot of systems over the years and have never gotten one myself and very rarely hear it happening to others so if this doesnt fix the problem ill be setting up an rma and pray the second one is better then the first. If the liquid cooler does resolve the problem im still keeping the egg rating at a 2 for the sole purpose that is this chip is that hot and the stock heat sink is that useless why even put it in the box in the first place. If it doesnt fix it and I do an rma ill rewrite this review on the new cpu. But as we stand 60c at idle is just not right!

5 out of 5 eggsNice CPU/GPU

Pros: Price. Quick. Works well with Ubuntu.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: You might get better performance with the proprietary graphics driver but the both are functional.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing little piece of hardware!

Pros: CPU+GPU all in one
4 cores at 3.5 GHz Turbo to 3.8
6 R7 based GPU cores on the built in GPu @720Mhz
HSA enabled makes it a potential 10 core compute chip

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Love how responsive this is when mated to 16GB od 1866 Mhz ram. Some gaming at medium settings some a mix of low and mid but...the most important part...the game is smooth and stutter free.
Office tasks make it yawn and it will even handle some light video editing easily enough. Really impressed with it's performance. The APU may very well be the future of main stream computing.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Processor

Pros: Love this processor. Very good product, great price

Cons: I was charged for the "Free" so unless you want to pay the extra 42.99 for the game, I would but it somewhere else.

4 out of 5 eggsPromising!

Pros: This is a promising CPU, though it is not without its flaws. It is far more refined than its predecessors. It balances GPU load / CPU load / energy input / heat output extremely well.

Improved CPU and GPU performance compared to its predecessors. I especially noticed CPU improvements.

Cons: Heat, heat, and heat. I suppose I've been spoiled by recent Intel offerings, but a processor that thermal throttles in its stock configuration is unacceptable to me. Running Prime95 torture test results in throttling one or more cores down to 3.1ghz almost immediately. The longer the test runs, the more time it spends at 3.1ghz or below. This should not be advertised as a 3.5ghz quad-core processor, unless the stock cooling (or heat dissipation within the core) is improved.

Any minor use of the GPU will arbitrarily lower CPU clock speed. This is likely to balance energy use / heat output, but is a poor compromise in my opinion. I first noticed this when running GPU-Z, which has a light 3D rendering sequence (not even full screen) to help determine PCI-E bus speed. Any time the rendering sequence was running, the CPU clock would automatically drop to below 3.0ghz. If this was a 3D graphics intensive game, I might understand, but not a 3D rendering of a small worm, moving through space (again a light 3D rendering just to load the graphics card slightly).

This CPU has serious drawbacks for those that might load it heavily.

Other Thoughts: Clearly AMD is trying to offer a balance of great GPU vs. great CPU performance. They've done both great (benchmarks are outstanding compared to Richland), but they don't play well together.

Loading the CPU up 100% results in nearly-instant thermal throttling. I first experienced this kind of reaction when Intel moved to their 22nm process in the Ivy-Bridge series, but that was largely at overclocked speeds or with very poor cooling (ITX case, for example).

It seems AMD's transition to 28nm is partly to blame, if my experience with Intel 22nm chips is of any correlation. I tried a larger cooler that I had from a Socket 754 system.. The cooler wasn't a whole lot larger (it actually fit the socket too!), but it was a serious hunk of aluminum that weighed almost twice what the stock cooler does, and had more surface area against the IHS on the CPU. It should pull heat quicker, if heat is the cause of the throttling.

That made nearly zero difference, which tells me that things are heating up inside the CPU (and integrated heat spreader) faster than it can dissipate. This was exactly what I experienced with Ivy Bridge.

Hard to tell where AMD will go from here. I think they made a fantastic CPU (Kaveri). But how long it can sustain heavy loading at the advertised clock speed(s) is in question, in my opinion.

The PC I used this chip for is an office workstation--- So it will likely benefit from both AMD's improvement in the CPU and GPU space, as heavy usage is not sustained. This same usage represents probably 75%+ PCs out there, so AMD has a winner, even though it has its drawbacks.

FWIW (and I'll be the first to tell you to take it with a grain of salt) Windows Experience CPU Score is a 7.6. That ranks right up at the top in this price point. GPU is a 6.1 business / 6.1 gaming, again not a bad showing.

5 out of 5 eggsNothing much to say, its a BEAST

Pros: Im a programmer and have never had my programs build so quickly. and integrated graphics is quite a bonus although i have not tried these yet because i ordered ASUS R7260X-DC2OC-2GD5 along with this build.

Cons: none yet

5 out of 5 eggsVery Nice!

Pros: -Runs very cool
-Fast with decent ram
-Great graphics for the price

Cons: It wasn't free? :)

Other Thoughts: I love these APU's. This seems to be the time of year that a lot of my family members come to me for PC upgrades. I've put together 4 of these systems and they have all been great for who is using them. Casual to low level gaming and email/ HTPC machines. Can't say enough good things about this package!

3 out of 5 eggsTroublesome

Pros: Price. Stabilty (minus cons, see below)

Cons: Massive compatibility issues with memory controller even with "compatible" memory as listed on main board memory compatibility lists. Weak (as in under volted) memory controller. Problems with dual channel memory and running memory at "OC'd" speeds such as 2133 or 2400. Problems with drivers for R7 graphics component. Manual downloads required for many installations of the Catalyst drivers are required to get correct or updated drivers and cannot rely on update/install function of software suite.

Other Thoughts: I wanted to like this processor. I generally like AMD products. This one is a disappointment. Researching this series of APU's brings to light the shortcomings inherent in what AMD did here. They went for a price point and blew quality out the window with a half-finished product. The critical flaw in the memory controller and its resultant problems took a decent APU and made it less than mediocre. Hopefully BIOS, or more accurately, UEFI updates will fix this issue and we will see these issues addressed and not have it overlooked and disregarded as is all to common these days by the manufacturers.

3 out of 5 eggsHi mom

Pros: I'm actually having trouble coming up with Pro's to put here.

The on board gfx are "ok" for light gaming.

Was able to get it to 4.0ghz on the CPU and 900 on the GPU with ease.

Cons: The clock speed is slower than the previous generation it replaced. I understand the whole workload per cycle thing, but this processor sure seems gimped in every review i've found.

Other Thoughts: I built this as a second computer just because i was curious about the a10 chip. After putting it through it's paces and benchmarks, i am having a hard time figuring out who they are trying to market this chip to.

The clock speeds are not up to snuff, a i3 dual core would smoke this chip in business applications. And no serious gamer would use this chip's on board graphics. So who's left, HTPC? Well, that's dieing out, if they are aiming for that audience they are about 4 years late.

A cheaper/faster 4 core AMD chip, or even a small dual core i3, with a $89 graphics card would out perform this.

I do not understand AMD's intended audience with this chip. If it was about $50 bucks cheaper i would call it a budget build chip, but the current prices are anything but budget.

4 out of 5 eggsAPU

Pros: fairly easy to install (see cons), so far i have a pretty good HTPC

Cons: only issue i have ran into is the catalyist driver installs the chip set fine but wont install the radeon 7 had to manualy reinstall driver set ( which was a hassle)

Other Thoughts: I bought this instead of an I7 setup i wanted to save money and buy a tv so far i have not been let down.
