5 out of 5 eggsBest Budget APU for HTPCs or basic users

Pros: -3.1 GHz Quad core CPU with a 3.8GHz Turbo
-Decent R7 graphics
-65 Watt TDP
-Cheap

Cons: -The stock cooler is fine, for the most part. It cools the processor fine until you put some significant load on it. Then the Temperature spikes from about 30C - 60C+.
-Not overclock-able
-R7 iGPU is more like an R5 sorta
-Depending on the board, the iGPU will hog 2GBs of your total system memory. 8GB+ @ 1866MHz is recommended.

Other Thoughts: The APU alone bundled with 1866MHz RAM can play smaller games like Minecraft, Left 4 Dead 2 and League of Legends at 1080p with High or so settings and achieve around 45FPS or so (Perfect 60+ on Vanilla Minecraft 1.8+).

5 out of 5 eggsLinux Ready

Pros: Installed Linux Mint 17.2 without a hitch. Both the open-source and catalyst graphics drivers worked out of the box without any issues. The closed source installed without a problem and installed Catalyst version 15.20. I saw significant speed increase over the open-source drivers.

The only thing I haven't tried yet is the Ethernet port since I use a USB 802.11N adapter.

(No overclocking)

Cons: So far I've seen none during run time. I'm running Phoronix tests to stress it.

I will say that when building this machine, I was very particulate about the hardware. Many of the FM+ motherboards are very RAM picky. If you don't you'll have lots of stability and performance issues. Check the RAM compatibility list.

I tend to by RAM that is at least one step faster than what I expect to run it at. This gives the RAM some breathing room if any of the RAM sticks have some performance issues. I bought DDR3 2400 and I'm only running it at 2133.

Other Thoughts: Many people said that GPU drivers were an issue in Linux. That was then an this is now. Now that AMD has released the drivers for 15.7 ( 2015-05-17) Linux support is a reality

5 out of 5 eggsspeedy bargain

Pros: easy installation with stock cooler

best value for htpc.

Cons: can't compete with more expensive intel procs for more demanding (gaming) uses.

Other Thoughts: used for htpc and it is a pleasure.

4 out of 5 eggsPerforming excellently for the price

Pros: -Price obviously
-Decent graphics performance, in some older/low settings games
-Fan runs completely quiet during day to day computing (internet, email, msoffice)

Cons: -Had issues with AMD display driver downloaded from their site. Pictures would show up as black while viewing icons and in windows photo viewer moving through photos most would display as black. Had to reinstall with the display driver from my motherboard manufacturer's site and it worked again.

Other Thoughts: I keep hoping AMD will come around with its display drivers but I still haven't gone though an install without some weird issue. If you're okay with a little troubleshooting go for it. If you want to be able to set it up and forget about it this processor may not be for you

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for budget builds and upgrades.

Pros: This APU is great, and I've had no problems with it. If you are building a budget PC for gaming then this works great with high speed ram. With 2133 ram it runs a lot of games 720p low easily, and some older games at 1080p.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsKaveri kool!

Pros: Fast, reliable, and plenty of built in graphics horsepower for all but the most intensive games. Though I didn't build it for the purpose of using it in a HTPC setup, this would serve as a great CPU for it. A great value from a price vs. performance standpoint. Great performance per watt, too.

If I were to build another lower cost, non-intensive gaming machine, I wouldn't hesitate to buy this CPU again.

Cons: Not a K part but, seeing that my intended purpose for is didn't call for it, I wouldn't call the lack of an unlocked multiplier a con.

Other Thoughts: Bought this as part of a system rebuild for my mom. She loves it.

5 out of 5 eggsSuper bang for the buck!

Pros: Impressive performance, can play newer games at medium settings on my ancient 1280x1024 LCD. Stock cooler works OK after upgrading to Arctic Silver thermal compound from the stock stuff AMD uses. CPU gets a 7.4 WEI in Windows 7, and GPU gets a 6.9.

Cons: Stock fan is OK at best, really not as nice as the coolers AMD used to include with older AM2, AM3 CPUs. If you plan on overclocking, don't even bother with the stock fan!!!!!!!!

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works fast and temp is low (100F) normally with stock cooling. Handles heavy workload with ease and stability running Win7 ULT on SSD.

Cons: Using the A88X Plus board I could not get G SKILL Ares 2133 RAM to work at any speed. I wound up with Kingston 1600s working very stable. I know the AMD specs say the 2133 should work but be very careful on this one. Even with 1600 DDR3 RAM at 32GB the graphics are impressive with 1080P streaming.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent CPU

Pros: Low power
Configurable TDP; unlimited (~80W), 65W, or 45W; processor will throttle to maintain selected power profile.
Basically as fast as the more expensive AMD Kaveri processors.

Cons: No reliable temperature monitoring ability
Claims to be quad core, this is debatable, can be considered dual core with fancy hyper-threading.
Although it uses relatively lower power, it isn't as efficient as recent Intel stuff.

Other Thoughts: Its cheap, it works well enough, andit doesn't use too much power.
