AMD A10-5800K Trinity Quad-Core 3.8GHz (4.2GHz Turbo) Socket FM2 100W Desktop APU (CPU + GPU) with DirectX 11 Graphic AMD Radeon HD 7660D AD580KWOHJBOX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Is still running in a friend's machine

Cons: Clock speed is deceptive, an i7 4770K runs circles around this thing both in terms of CPU processing and GPU power.

The bad thermal sensor makes overclocking the particular chip I bought impossible. Liquid cooled this thing was reporting temps over 100C Idle.

Other Thoughts: I have been an AMD fanboy for a decade, so I'm not saying this out of Intel bias.

AMD is doing things which have never been done before, their fusion approach is a bold move in a new direction, but its also going to take time for them to work out the kinks.

So if you love AMD, want to experiment with new ideas & designs, then APUs are for you.

If you want raw performance and better quality control, go Intel for the time being. AMD will come back given some time.

AMD Radeon™ RP1866 Performance Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory AP316G1869U2K
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Works exactly as described, plays well with intel CPU, I dont overclock it beyond 1866 so I can't speak to its abilities there.

Cons: None yet, maybe price? Then again not everyone installs an unnecessary 32gb of ram into their machine.

Foxconn NanoPC nT-i1250 Intel NM10 1 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel GMA 3650 Black Mini / Booksize Barebone System
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Small, silent, cheap, and plenty powerful for my needs.
If memory serves it's also a gigabit Ethernet adaptor which is great since it functions as my nas.

Cons: Runs a little warm but nothing I'm worried about.

Other Thoughts: Linux 3D support for the Intel GMA 3650 is virtually non existent. I don't know how this thing would handle windows with aero.

Running crunchbang and a few services like samba, vnc, ssh, etc... My ram utilization never goes over 200mb (of 4gb) and the CPU doesn't go over 30%
