  1. HEVC acceleration is subject to inclusion/installation of compatible HEVC players.
  2. AMD Virtual Super Resolution (VSR) feature is designed to render games at higher resolutions and dynamically rescale them for HD displays at higher quality and visual details. Check with your system manufacturer for specific capabilities.
  3. FreeSync is an AMD technology designed to eliminate stuttering and/or tearing in games and videos by locking a display’s refresh rate to the framerate of the graphics card. Requires Monitor, AMD Radeon graphics and/or AMD A-Series APU compliant with DisplayPort Adaptive-Sync 1.2 (or newer).  AMD Catalyst driver 15.2 Beta (or newer) required. Adaptive refresh rates vary by display; check with your monitor manufacturer for specific capabilities. Only select AMD Radeon GPUs and A-Series APUs supported; see for full details.
  4. Frame rate targeting is an AMD technology designed to reduce heat, noise and power consumption by letting users set a maximum frame rate for their games and applications. Requires an AMD Radeon00 R9 285 graphics card and a supporting AMD Catalyst Driver. Support for other products is planned. Not currently compatible with AMD CrossFire00 multi-GPU configurations. Confirm supported technologies with system manufacturer before purchase.

When you state Fan and Heatsink included, include them 7/6/2020 2:15:12 PM

Overall Review: Purchased the AMD A6-9500. I purchased it new. It didn't come in an AMD box like the one shown on the product. It's supposed to come with heatsink and fan. Neither are here. No warranty info. Nothing. It looks used with a product number that isn't the standard part number. Very suspicious.

Cheap and works, but don't expect a powerhouse of a computer 6/18/2020 1:34:41 PM

Pros: solid little budget option.
has integrated video to help reduce cost

Cons: Runs 8 lanes of Video PCIE to the processor instead of 16, which means you cannot run dual video cards. I was building a system with the idea of running dual video cards for the higher number of monitor outputs, and this was disappointing. Most people will not need that but it was an issue for me. I bought another CPU and this one is sitting on the shelf

Overall Review: I wish I knew about the PCIE lane issue before purchasing this chip, but most people will not have that issue. Personally I wish I had not spent the money on mine.

CPU Works Fine. Heatsink and Fan Not Included 4/3/2020 8:12:07 AM

Pros: CPU works great.

Cons: States that Heatsink and fan are included but the package only contains the CPU.

Worked for my intended purpose, but don't expect much from it 1/14/2020 7:38:38 AM

Pros: price

Cons: don't expect much in the way of multitasking. just running an internet browser puts a lot of load on this thing. like 70-100% cpu usage. spend the extra 30-40 for a ryzen.

Overall Review: this is a good processor to get if you are getting a processor that is one of the 3000 series ryzens and your motherboard may or may not have the bios needed to run the latest processors. i used this to get my motherboards latest bios installed then swapped a better newer processor in.
the heat sink it comes with uses the default (at least in my situation it did) mounting hardware already installed on the motherboard so it was pretty east to install.

Good for something 10/30/2019 11:21:32 AM

Pros: It works, it’s a great place holder

Cons: Not very powerful

Overall Review: I was building my first gaming rig and I didn’t have a lot of money so I cheaped out on my CPU, I shouldn’t have. AMD over all is a great brand and when is comes to CPUs I’m team red all the way. But this chip is not made for games at all even with my beefy dedicated GPU games were being bottlenecked by the cpu. So if your just building a cheap PC for you grandparents then this is your CPU but if you intend to do anything demanding with it go Ryzen.

Great performance for the price. 8/2/2019 10:55:25 AM

Pros: Cheap and decently powerful. Stock cooling works well and I had no complaints from my parents regarding noise.

Cons: None so far.

Overall Review: Used this to make a base system for my parents to get their everyday needs taken care of. It gets the job done very well and is probably a tad of overkill for my parents. Lol
