Very nice for 55 01/10/2014
'K' model', if that's what tickles you, I liked the price and the fact the the integrated graphics are very capable for anything but gaming. I have built apu rigs using the quads and found them to be very awesome indeed! This? It's right up there next to awesome, but one step down at 'just super'!! I wanted to see if these lil dual cores would make good workstations or not. This is very capable as a workstation running proprietary software at a small business.....even large. If all any computer does is get files from a server or watches Netflix or surfs the web......This is all you need!! Amazing for the price.
If you are use to running a quad core with lots of L2 and L3 cache, or even a dual core with lots more L2 cache, you will notice a lil difference using this cpu. Doesn't take much to tax this cpu out, send it right on up to 100% or close to it.
It was designed to be just a cut above a laptop with integrated graphics. This will beat a laptop any day. WEI it gets 6.9 for cpu performance (dismal) and 6.3 gaming. I had some stuff opened when I ran that test though. Still, it works better then a laptop imo. It's snappy, but not as snappy as any of my other rigs with large L2 and L3 cache on the cpu. This is what it is, a video watching/websurfing
giant. I haven't overclocked yet, but I installed an early phenom cpu hs/fan with the all copper bottom and heat pipes and it doesn't get over 90f on stock voltage and clocks......so some oc'ing may be In the near future, but I don't need to for what my girl friend will be using it for.
