AMD A10-7850K Kaveri 12 Compute Cores (4 CPU + 8 GPU) 3.7GHz Socket FM2+ 95W AD785KXBJABOX Desktop Processor AMD Radeon R7 series
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great Value, Plays 1080p games at Low to Medium settings, supports small form factor PCs, overclocks very well.

Cons: Requires fast RAM to take full advantage of the iGPU's potential.

Other Thoughts: I have been absolutely amazed at how well the A10-7850k works with no more than some decent RAM. I have mine overclocked to 4.4GHz CPU @ 960MHz iGPU and have been able to play most titles at 1080p Low to Medium settings. You can do even better at 720p with High to Ultra settings. I recommend this APU to anyone that wants an small form factor PC with great ability to play games or even those that prefer the full desktop on a budget. I can't wait for the next generation of APU to come!

Pros: FM2+ - Most current board & super feature rich.
R7 iGPU - Not enough can be said about this.
PCI-e - Supports 3.0 for great bandwidth.
Thermal - Runs cool lower TDP than previous A-series
Cost - Great for those starting out & want to get it all.

Cons: None! Just remember that you will want DDR3-1866 or better RAM to get the most out of your gaming.

Other Thoughts: First off I've had this APU for over 6 months now. I have run it under water & air cooling and couldn't be happier with the thermal results. Stock fans are stock fans but if you're not overclocking they work great. Not only does the CPU overclock well, but so does the iGPU. Even under full load on air I have not been able to break 60C yet. This chip will handle every day computer use & moderate gaming without batting an eye. Don't let nay sayers get you down about buying an APU, this is one of the best bang for your buck chips out there today. 1080p w/ Low to Medium setting on modern games (even w/o mantle active) I am able to pull 30-45fps. You don't even have to worry about the future thanks to being able to use Dual Graphics with an R7 250 which will get you to Medium to High settings at 30-45 fps. Down the road you can also still add a decent GPU without fear of losing any performance. Just recently I added a dedicated GPU & I haven't had a single issue running my R9 270x on High to Max settings at 60+ fps. With every thing that AMD is putting into their new chips, the future will only get better for this chip and what it represents.

Pros: 720p gaming on Med/High, 1080p gaming on Low. Great upgrade path for those on a budget. Overclocks like a champ with very little effort. Bought this to replace my dying PS3 and couldn't be happier.

Cons: Beta drivers where rough when I bought this but nice stable drivers have been release, new tech go figure.

Other Thoughts: If you're going to do any overclocking on this APU make sure you get a decent cooler or you will regret it. Fast ram is your best friend, don't go slower than DDR3-2133.
