Put into a customer PC.
quad core that performs. Windows does not feel sluggish. Handle all office tasks without trouble.
Idles at a low temp with stock cooler.
Can overclock well (though I did not overclock it, I have overclocked other Trinity and RIchland chips, they clock well)
Better graphics than intel's best offering.
can hold its own against the i3 when it comes to multithreaded tasks. Easily beats the i3 when it comes to gaming with onboard graphics.
Weaker than an i3 in single threaded tasks, maybe even the Pentium
When customers tell me they want a system that they wont game on, I go with the AMD APU. This does a few things, 1) I dont have to buy a dedicated graphics card. 2) it gives them decent graphics if they do decide to run a game in the future.
The APU boards also offer great IO such as DVI, HDMI, legacy keyboard and mouse, usb 3.0, etc. Customers will get lots of features without having to break the bank. These chips also idle at a low wattage comparable to intel. Yes they suck a lot of juice while running 100% but most systems will idle.
This richland refresh is worth it more than this chip. Kavari is alright but does not seem to out do richland in all tasks.
