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.

5 out of 5 eggs10/10

Pros: Excellent processing speed, low temperatures, price.

Seriously, $60 is a steal for this beauty.

Cons: Of all the stock heatsinks I've ever had to install, this one is by far the worst. The documentation is pretty ambiguous and the physical parts are confusing. After playing with the parts and the initial frustration, I got everything in the right position, but needed a second pair of hands to lock it in place. If I ever have to remove it, I will 110% buy a new heatsink without question.

Other Thoughts: I bought this for a SAN build and it can handle everything I throw at it so far (Apache, game servers, media streaming, backup services, etc).

I have not been able to test the graphics.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little processor

Pros: Low power, Quad core, inexpensive, Linux compatible.

Cons: Somewhat slow clock speed, stock heatsink is not passively cooled (has cpu fan).

Other Thoughts: My kill-a-watt reports a power usage of 29-31w at idle and 50w using all 4 cores. Also have 2 hard drives, 3 ssd's, 1 dvd drive, a lightweight raid card, 8GB of DDR3, and a 450w gold power supply. So overall, not bad at all.

I "upgraded" my home server to use this cpu along with an ASRock motherboard. The processor works great running ubuntu server 12.04. I am using this as my web server, torrent server, web server, folding@home machine (averaging 3500 ppd on 3 threads), print server, file server, FTP server, Minecraft dedicated server, among other things.

Unfortunately I can't speak for the video portion of this APU, since I am using a command line OS. I assume it's decent performer if you wanted to watch 1080p movies for a media server (which I may do someday).

5 out of 5 eggsPowerful little guy

Pros: Runs great, quiet

Cons: heatsink installation

Other Thoughts: I use this machine as my Linux htpc and file server. It runs like a champ! Works great for steam in home streaming. I am using this rig with a GTX 465 gpu though. Great bang for your buck!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Low Cost CPU

Pros: Great processor that only uses 25w. I purchased this for use as a home server cpu. I'm currently running Windows Server 2012 with hyper v enable. I am hosting 3 virtual machines including a Windows file server, a domain controller and it's also running a Sophos UTM Gateway. The processor still has some room for an additional load. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a low watt cpu.

Cons: It does run a little hot but then I do have it in a very small itx case which is filled.

2 out of 5 eggsThe $60 Intel Pentium G3220 Haswell is twice as fast as this.

Pros: it is quad core and amd

Cons: In real world tests
The $60 Intel Pentium G3220 Haswell is twice as fast as this.

Other Thoughts: I am not going to buy any more of these things

5 out of 5 eggsGreat low power CPU!

Pros: Low power consumption, low heat output, quiet, well priced.
Heat sink is *slightly* tricky to mount but much easier than I expected from other reviews.

Cons: Personally, I haven't found any.

Other Thoughts: Keep expectations reasonable, this is not a gaming CPU, it is about low power consumption. Plays games at lower settings if you want, but this is more of a home, home business, or low demand office applications processor. Got what I expected, have built two office computers with this baby, client is fully satisfied with their machines.
