5 out of 5 eggsGreat performance out of a low-power solution

Pros: - Cool. It's under a desk next to my gaming rig, and it stays cool all the time. Rarely if ever do the fans kick on.
- Fast. I was kinda surprised by this thing. I teach AutoCAD and Revit and it handles both programs very well, same with SketchUp (and it's part of a prebuilt I bought for $350, so it's only running 3.2GB). I also do web development and I've rarely if ever had any issues with the CPU. It's usually running one portrait and one horizontal 1920x1080 screen; had it running a third for a while, but that monitor is now more dedicated to my laptop and RPi.
- Low power. Kinda repeating myself, since less power generally = cooler, but it uses less power than my laptop.
- Surprisingly fast at CPU rendering (see other)

Cons: - This isn't gonna replace the video card in your gaming rig.
- Listed as two cores, Task Manager says 1 core, two logicals.
- Idles at ~6-12%. Maybe I'm just used to the Phenom or my FX-6300 box at work, but both of those idle a 1-3%, or maybe Windows 8 just doesn't like to sit still.

Other Thoughts: This has been a great CPU; so great that I've become a bit of an APU evangelist among my friends. I'm considering upgrading only because I like the architecture so much, and not because I'm not impressed with what it's capable of.

This CPU actually surprised me the other day. I was doing some architectural rendering projects the other day. The rendering program I use (Kerkythea) is great(/free), except it doesn't let you use dedicated GPUs, so the 970 on my gaming rig can't do much. I set up some images on my slightly OC'd Phenom II X6 1055T (~3ghz from 2.8) and figured I'd see what this could do because surely it wouldn't be faster than my i7 laptop. It ended up rendering about twice as fast as the laptop and about 85% of the speed of the Phenom, and my only theory is that it's pushing processing for some threads to the GPU part of the architecture. I was considering upgrading the Phenom to an FX-8350, but now I might be upgrading my A4 to an A10; if that's what the lowest-spec APU is that benchmarks at half what the Phenom does, I'd imagine the A10 that benchmarks at the same level as the Phenom would be an absolute killer, and at half the wattage no less. That or see if I can hold off for a year and grab the Zen-based APU-series...

If I do upgrade, this CPU might make its way into a NAS/HTPC where it can just idle all day at a couple of watts. It's still a pretty good piece of hardware, no point in throwing it away and I don't feel like the Craigslist crowd would appreciate it.

4 out of 5 eggsA Great Duel Core CPU

Pros: This is a fast CPU. I personally am pleased with it. Came in good condition, and it does and has been doing it's job for a little over a year now :) Would choose over an expensive Intel chip any day.

Cons: Now, I know there are many who complain about AMD's heat sinks, and I have to admit they kinda have a right too :/ The CPU get's in the high 70 degrees Celsius range when under stress, and recently my computer was getting random restarts from heat. When it was causing restarts, the heatsink was full of dog hair, so I'm not going to say it doesn't do it's job under normal circumstances, but remember that it's mediocre at it's best.

Other Thoughts: If you're the kinda person who likes after market heat sinks, get one for this. If you aren't, you should be fine. It's really just up to you.

1 out of 5 eggs"trying to find out what kept causing reboot"

Pros: Its in the newest rig I own. Purchased in july 2015.

Cons: As another user wrote on here - trouble trying to find out what kept causing my machine to be spontaneously rebooting at random moments through out the day.

Tried singling out hard ware and log checking in Win8.1. Thought if I lashed bios of the board it might fix it (another story).

Glad i got curious enough to come through here.

i will let it go now

2 out of 5 eggsCan't even run Farmville 2!

Pros: Decent processor if you're just opening text doc's...

Cons: Built this for my step mother to play on Farmville and check emails, she max's the things out just playing farmville and nothing else open! I am pretty disappointed. I will try messing with it more to see if it's maybe a drivers issue...

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Value

Pros: Been using this CPU for sometime and it has worked really well. Works great for some moderate gaming, however I'm not using the on board graphics so I can't speak to that.

Cons: Stock cooler is small, but I don't go crazy with my computer so it works just fine for me.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for playing older games

Pros: Price point. plays old games like HITMAN2 no prob. avg 61FPS on 1020x720 or something rather. thats full textures and environment. FYI newer games run much lower on med settings maybe 27-30FPS if you can get em to run.

Cons: comming from a quad core. I do notice the lag, which makes me a little impatient.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty good for the price

Pros: 3.7 Ghz with a built in graphics card. Purchased for my son's computer.

Cons: Puchased for my son's computer. Dual-core feels a bit sluggish compared to the 8 core in my computer.

Graphics card is enough for older games like Portal and the early Valve games. Wasn't able to run a gamecube emulator. Can't handle more modern games.

Other Thoughts: The packaging claims that you experience some kind of boost when pairing it with certain radeon graphics cards, I assume the underlying technology is something similar to crossfire but without the bridge. I put in a Radeon card (later model than the ones mentioned on the box) and they work well together, although I can't claim that that's due to the pairing with an APU.

4 out of 5 eggsVery good CPU for the price

Pros: So far so good. Bought one for my HTPC. The integrated graphics are good enough for lots of low-intensity games.

Cons: Weak stock cooler. The contact plate only covers part of the heat spreader. I strongly recommend investing in an aftermarket cooler.
