1 out of 5 eggsA mystery flaw that is hard to resolve...

Pros: Works good...when it wants too

Cons: This CPU is nothing but JUNK! it caused me so much trouble trying to find out what kept causing my machine to be spontaneously rebooting at random moments through out the day sometimes 5 TIMES! then the pattern shifts to where it does it once during the day then another cycle over night before dawn and then again 2 or 3 more times depending on use but as always its either random or one reboot after another.

I went from Windows XP to Windows 8 to even LINUX and still gave me the same results the disgusting reboots with ABSOLUTE no TRACE of info on the Event viewer and worst when I have it using the onboard video using the graphics chip of the APU the reboots become more random and then the event viewer CRASHES to where I have to close it and re-open it only to have the same crash and only have a few seconds to do a quick search and yet NOTHING other than an event 6009 that states "Microsoft (R) Windows (R) 5.01. 2600 Service Pack 3 Multiprocessor Free." which In another Machine that I use it never appears only on mine and AFTER the reboots.

Another new Issue it began to do is after a bit of multitasking and use of the web browser there is a disgusting LAG in which I confused over a memory issue but after testing my hard drive and RAM and the results were GOOD I concluded that its the CPU's apu or whatever that is causing this horrible lag to where the task manager shows a HUGE 50% or greater of CPU usage that shows me just how BAD it performs without any video card installed.

Frankly I think this amd cpu is a total waste of TIME its the least friendliest with any ATI and NVIDA card I install that keeps these mysterious rebooting that pretty much RUIN everything I do in this machine if I don't save my progress I can't run my business right and the Amd technical support are more stubborn than my 3 year old telling me there is nothing wrong and that I need to download the latest this n that when I already did and went BEYOND my capabilities to try to get this THING fix and so FAR NOTHING

Either this CPU version is flawed or I ended up throwing money away getting a worthless DUD either way I am very dissatisfied with AMD and this experience has left an extremely SOUR taste in my consumer tongue that I will never BUY and just go for an Intel everything & waste money all over again but only this time on something worth it NOT worthless!

Other Thoughts: What makes it more complicated here is finding the appropriated drivers for the on board video it comes with the amd site does not even LIST this in its apu list its like they almost realize what a piece of failure junk this is that they just TAKE it off their product software list and just leaves whoever owns them high and dry on their own I was a fool for going for an AMD I guess I should of done more research I had assumed that they still carried their fame glory from years back thinking they were better than Intel since my first PC was an intel and I disliked its poorly performance but compare to THIS my old machine runs more stable than my current one.

I am just so disappointed in amd right now and never again go for one I feel so paranoid right now just wondering when the next disgusting reboot is gonna occur and if i'll be caught off guard ill be lucky if I can make this post without it going out on me lol.

4 out of 5 eggsA+ budget friendly CPU

Pros: Nice budget CPU for light to medium multitasking. I built a rig for less then $300 USD using this processor. Dual core will be phased out soon but if you plan on putting together a PC for a loved one or friend who doesn't need a powerful computer this will do the trick.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsA good value CPU

Pros: -Good performance in streaming, surfing, and general everyday tasks.
-Good clock speed for a budget CPU.
-Case badge!

Cons: -Dual-core is starting to be phased out for gaming, but I doubt you plan to use this for gaming anyway.
-Locked multiplier for overclocking. It can still be overclocked by the Bclk. Some cheaper overclocking utilities might not support it.

Other Thoughts: I'm using this for a basic machine to watch videos and surf the web.

5 out of 5 eggsPretty fast for what it is

Pros: Seems to perform pretty fast for it's price range. Able to play most games but only on lower settings and at lower resolutions.

Cons: You get what you pay for.

4 out of 5 eggsAffordable, but fast APU.

Pros: - Quite fast for day-to-day usage.
- Affordable.
- Decent graphics chip built-in.

Cons: None at this price.

Other Thoughts: - The heatsink has shrunk. AMD, what's up with this?
- The heatsink used have linear fins, but now it is radial, so air cannot flow
from front-to-back of the case through the heatsink. This is a bad design,
and should be corrected.
