Other Thoughts: AMD processors are so SLOW! I bought one of these and laughed!
This is SLOWER than a pentium 4! The graphics are slower than my computer from 2005! AMD payed the benchmarkers to give this good points, because this is garbage.
Everyone should buy intel. They are faster and better processor. people who buy AMD are ruining the market and making it hard for game and software makers to make them compatible with everthing out there. If AMD didnt exist, everything would run smoother on pure intel and nvidia machines.
Nice try amd but intel hd 4000 is better. They even tried to trick people by making this one "HD 7000" so they would think it is almost 2x faster.
I hope AMD goes out of business soon so I can laugh with my intel processor. I love intel and you should too, amd is a criminal.
Pros: I got this because the 8350 went out of stock. Luckily, this will match the 8350 if you overclock it. Glad i didnt pay the extra $20+ to get it. That extra $20 went toward a copper cooler and better RAM.
Cons: Single-threaded apps are not as good as an i7.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I had this in an Acer I bought back in July. I trans-planted the motherboard and a few other components into an HTPC case after I broke the Acer case on accident.
Got a better cooler, Arctic silver, EarthWatts PSU, efficient 1866 RAM, and a 64GB SSD + 1TB Green. Altogether it has been an awesome HTPC that can even run TF2/CS:GO maxed out. Feels great playing these games maxed out, sitting on my couch, with a wireless controller and then just switching back to XBMC when im done.
I bet the 65W A8 would be even better. Dont be fooled by TDP, EVER. 65W? No... more like 70-90W. Same with Ivy Bridge. It says 77, but it still goes well into the 90s.
Though, for the TDP, this runs pretty cool. The fan almost never speeds up.
Cons: Wish it ran even cooler. Wish the graphics were better with the lower TDP.
Other Thoughts: You really need to know what you want if you are buying this. Otherwise, get a 5800k. This is more for HTPCs and light gaming.READ FULL REVIEW
