3 out of 5 eggsAMD 14.12 drivers cause photo thumbnail issue

Pros: Great performance for a good price. I use this as my Windows Media Center TV-PC.

Cons: AMD's 14.12 Omega driver update break photo thumbnails on my ASrock AMD A8-7600 APU Windows 7 X64 Ultimate PC. This causes my Windows Media Center photo screen saver to not work. I had to roll back to an older AMD driver to get thumbnails working again. No issue on my other AMD systems running 14.12. This appears to be an APU issue with the new AMD Catalyst Omega drivers.

5 out of 5 eggsIm pretty content

Pros: Good price to power ratio. I havent put it through a ton yet but it renders anything i want it to in a 3D modelling program where my last cpu couldnt handle a mesh over 50k faces. render quick too. ive put in 35 hours of rome 2 on very high settings with it and it handles them well. occasionally the campaign map will be buggh but i think thats less a hardware issue and more of a rome 2 issue battle wise itll put up with very high settinga even if theres me 3 ai armies 8000 troops and a city on the map. it runs skyrim on very high and dota 2 with out even sweating. it was also very easy to run dual graphics (crossfire) with my dedicated graphics, just check to make sure you have a compatible card because it can only run dual graphics with a couple of amd cards.

Cons: its nice for a decent gaming rig to run twr2, dota 2, skyrim etc on high-very high settings. add an r7 series graphics card run crossfire and youll have a good rig to run basically anything on.. so long as you have a good heat sink or liquid cooling system.

1 out of 5 eggsAMD A8-7600 Kaveri

Pros: The quad core, and GPU's are fast and don't get bogged down with dual screen configuration even in HDMI HD.

Cons: The Manufacturer failed to release drivers for HSA and so the performance is no better than the earlier A8 versions. The chip will not load Linux at all. Any Linux. It locks up in a black screen. The cooler it comes with is nearly useless, even for watching movies in dual screen, it overheats. It only works with Windows and then not in HSA. More money for a gimmick that is less effective than the cheaper Trinity and Richland chips. AMD's complaint department sent an email telling me to just load the new Linux drivers..duh without a working VGA screen nothing gets loaded. I selected the A8 for its lower power and TDP so as to avoid the cooling problems with 100W chips. This is only for multimedia and watching TV so the load is relatively light on the APU. So even configured at 65W the chip over heats at a light load. So don't be fooled by the hype, without the proper drivers Windows and Linux never take advantage of the HSA and multi core GPU. I gave them one egg because it kinda works in Windows.

Other Thoughts: I have a Linux system (Ubuntu 14.10 and Linux Mint 17.1) that runs the A8-5500 (Trinity) flawlessly. Fast and no overheating. It handles dual screens without a problem and works for light gaming. No problems with the drivers.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for Budget Builds

Pros: Superb Quad-Core with a nice clock speed and affordable pricetag !

Perfect for web browsing , (Light) gaming , and general media consumption like the play button tube , the book of faces and the flix of the net (Not sure if I can use the proper names XD)

The GPU side of it prevents having to buy a dedicated GPU for a budget-friendly first custom PC, and is powerful enough for blu-ray content, streaming and general 1080P content.

Heatsink with pre-applied thermal paste and fan is included, wich is a nice touch.

Cons: The inculded heatsink is very small and will not sustain even small overclocks , it's OK at best for normal use and stock speed operation but I recommand swaping it for a bigger CPU cooler for longer lifespan or at least swap the included fan (wich is OK but pretty noisy) with a Noctua or any other fan manufacturer that you like.

Do not expect stellar gaming prowesses with this APU, it is sufficient for a light load , like LOL , minecraft and other non-demanding games but for 1080P AAA titles like BF4, COD and Arma (just to name a few) , get a dedicated graphics card to work with it.

Other Thoughts: Perfect for budget builds and web browsers.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: Snappy performance
Plays most recent games with on-chip graphics
Ridiculous value and ease of build

Cons: Requires fast memory to maximize gaming potential (DDR3 2133 minimum recommended), but this memory has come down a lot in price since the introduction of DDR4.

Other Thoughts: This is one of the best values of the processor world. I haven't encountered a game I couldn't play yet. Admittedly most of my games are from last year or 2012... but I believe with fast memory this processor can handle just about anything...

4 out of 5 eggsOutstanding CPU, cheap fan

Pros: Outstanding performance, got scores more than Core i5 with Geekbench.
Good power consumption
Excellent builtin GPU
4 cores

Cons: The fan is terrible. It is too noisy and inefficient. I was not expecting a whole copper fan, but I expected an copper column inside. The fan looks cheaply made and it is whole aluminum.
In my system, even when the CPU is fully idle, the fan runs at more than 2000 rpm, not sure what will happen if the CPU has a high workload.

Other Thoughts: I really should have ordered a fan. Now everything was put on and I'm too lazy to replace the current fan.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for HTPC

Pros: Good value for what you get. Also considered an Intel i3 but they're not quite there for graphics performance and mobo's are pricier.

Cons: DON'T EVEN CONSIDER using the stock cooler. Not long after booting into the OS it started spooling up towards full speed at just around 50% CPU usage... and it produces a pretty high pitch whine.

I also tried an old AM2 heat sink from the 65W X2 system I replaced (much larger) but it spins pretty fast too. These are supposed to be 65w TDP but they seem like they run hotter. As mentioned, my old Athlon X2 4200 (yeah, I know) was a 65 watt but the stock cooler ran nice and slow. Time for more experimentation.

I just bought a Cooler Master Vortex (anything tall won't fit in my case) for $26, we'll see how that does.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat budget FM2+ Chip

Pros: Cheapest Kaveri Quad Core Available

Great Price/Performance Ratio

Descent Power Usage

Cons: Heatsink is tiny. If you just watch YouTube or basic productivity software you are fine.
If you intend to game you MUST get a Aftermarket Heatsink.

Only has 384 graphics next cores compared to the 512 in the higher end Kaveri models (7850k for example)

Other Thoughts: Purchased this chip to do an upgrade on a friends ancient P4 setup. He wanted to game a little, but gaming was a huge priority.

You must replace the stock Heatsink for gaming. Doing so will allow this chip to run at turbo clock maxed indefinitely.
This chip performs almost identical to the 6800k it is slower in cpu tasks, but the GCN next give it a lot more graphics horsepower at a much lower TDP.

It plays TF2, League of Legends, Dota, CS:GO and many other games at 1080 with good graphic settings. Other games if set to 720p or 900p allow this to play a lot more games at smooth frame rates. Newer AAA titles like AC:Unit CoD|Ghosts and Advanced warfare will require a discrete graphics card.

5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding!

Pros: Runs very cool.
Plenty fast enough for normal use.
GPU performance is astounding!
- Hitman: Absolution @ 720 (low) ~35-40FPS+
- Call of Duty: MW3: Max settings @ 1080 - smooth!
- Dirt 3 - High settings, 50fps+

Really the only ones I've tested - but exceptionally better than playing on the xBox 360.

Significant upgrade from A6-3500.

Cons: None, though you really need high speed memory to get everything out of the GPU (but I'm using 1600).

Also, the 7850k is a very costly upgrade - but it will be quite worthwhile, I feel, in the future when it is cheaper.

Other Thoughts: I use this setup for my HTPC. The SATA performance is exceptional with an SSD and the system boots in seconds.
