5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: + Cheap for the performance you get
+ It's only 25W, so it stays cool and uses very little electricity
+ Runs great on multi-threaded programs
+ GPU is more powerful than I thought
+ Stock heatsink is very small, and quiet (only barely audible even at 62.5% fan speed.

Cons: - Single threaded performance isn't that great
- Single channel memory support

Other Thoughts: I paired this with MSI AM1I AM1 Mini ITX AMD Motherboard, and haven't had any problems. For the given total cost of a motherboard, this CPU and one stick of memory the value is great.

This is obviously not a gaming CPU, I use it in an HTPC to play 1080p quality videos and also as a BOINC PC that is always on. If you know what you're getting into before you buy this, you won't be disappointed. This CPU would be a good option for an HTPC or a small workstation running MS office and general internet browsing.

The idle temps on this are very low (if speedfan is giving me reliable information) around 16-18°C, at full load for a few hours I've seen it hit 48°C.

5 out of 5 eggsGood little APU

Pros: Low wattage (25Watt) and is more than capable of handling even the most recent 2d fighting games. I've even been playing Civilization Beyond Earth on this apu at 1080p with no issue.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsQuad-core for a few dollars more...

Pros: Low TDP. Fairly quiet operation. Slightly better graphics performance. Cheaper overall build due to SOI design. Works well with Linux. Seems to be the best bang-for-the-buck in its category. Possibly an order of magnitude faster than the TF-20 CPU in my laptop.

Cons: No voice-activated auto-install-to-motherboard option. Installing the heatsink/fan was Different. Definitely different. With the first AM1 APU heatsink I installed, just sat there and stared at it for a minute or two. Once I got my head around the mechanics of it, seemed to install quite smoothly. But it made me stop and think.

Other Thoughts: I purchased two AMD Sempron 2650 APUs recently, was very impressed with their performance as 1080p-capable HTPC builds using MSI and ASUS motherboards. Installed 8GB memory and a 60GB SSD. Kill-A-Watt meter said ~28w for both builds at idle. Bought this Athlon 5350 APU as an upgrade for better gaming peformance in one of the HTPCs (Ouch). Seems I'll be retiring my PIII-based frewall with the 2650 in another sub-$200 build.

5 out of 5 eggsWOW !!

Pros: Fast and powerful for the "low" price of this quad core.
A winner in my book !! on my acer touch screen, a fast response with every movement from this processor.
If you are looking for something "low cost " go with this product, it just plain works well.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: with 8gb's of ram, this amd quad core runs circles around
my old xeon "ddr2".
Yes, I overclocked just a hair, why not.
Used speed fan to check temp's, runs cool at idle and full load.

5 out of 5 eggsCute lil processor that get's the job done

Pros: Low TDP
Decent IGP capable of 1080p video
"Quad" core for some light multitasking
Came in a really cute and tiny box
Low cost accompanying MOBO

Cons: Heat sink is confusing to install ... installs like a stock intel heatsink ...

Other Thoughts: I chose this CPU for a very budget gaming rig for a friend
Athlon 5350+R7 265

And it runs swell on most games ...
Starcraft 2
Metro 2033
Rise of Nations
Mafia 2
Bioshock Infinite

This was long before the G3258 from intel. However given how cheap this CPU and MOBOs are for this platform I would choose this CPU for entry level builds for gaming it would even be a great for a family computer

5 out of 5 eggsNothing Compares

Pros: Nothing compares to this processor in terms of TDP/Price/Performance.

I needed to build the fastest MCPC with the lowest TDP for under $200 and this was the only answer.

Cons: It isn't free

Other Thoughts: Harry M. The NUC is three times the price of a 5350 build.

Thomas D. The Pentium G3220 has twice the TDP.

2 out of 5 eggsdisappointed perfromance

Pros: Inexpensive and low power.

Cons: Poor performance.

Other Thoughts: My setup: Kabini 2.05GHz processor, ASUS AM1I-A motherboard, 16GB of memory and SSD drive.
The performance of this AMD processor is very poor. I compared this setup with an Intel NUC D54250WYK with a 4th generation 4 core i5 processor that I have. The benchmarks are for a Java program I wrote:
NUC: power 14 – 19 Watts Time: 1:23Min
AMD: power 22 – 24 Watts. Time 3:00 Min
The price of the two systems was almost identical. If I had known that this was going to be the case I would have bought another NUC.
The poor performance and the fact that the AMD system could not use jumbo packets under Windows 7 caused me to replace the processor and motherboard with an Intel i3 and Asus H97I-Plus. Performance was now on par with the NUC and I could use jumbo packets again.
