Becoming a fan. If you are thinking about an i3, think about this one instead.
Great Price to Performance! I am very happy with the way this inexpensive processor handles.
Very nice, but now that I bought it I would have rather gotten a cpu and a separate gpu. This really does benefit from higher ram speeds.
Top of the line AMD APU, fitted with 12 compute cores and having eight of them dedicated to the iGPU. This CPU is more GPU than CPU in the most literal sense possible, and is even capable of playing some of my favorite games at 1080p. Loving it!
Stock cooler is **** though.
Nice Apu. For my steam box, it's working great. Maybe I'll try to overcloak later, but everything is working for now.
Fine for what it is.
Not going to be equal to a good CPU + GPU set-up for games.
Has powered my Linux PC with no problems at all.
I currently have this overclocked to 4.4 on the CPU and 960 on the GPU. Running stable so far, no issues. As long as you spring for decent ram, 2133 speed or better, you will get a good response from this chip.
Very much recommended for HTPC's or any system that requires a smaller case, or less voltage.
Overclock settings can be viewed in the photos of this build
I am very happy with this decision. APU is better than I expected. overclocks easily.
It is what it is. 8]
This APU is a beast! Stays quiet even under load (until you add a dedicated GPU, MSI R9 380 4GB in my case, which runs quiet but really heats up the APU because it sits so close to it. You can add a liquid cooler to get rid of that problem). It can handle many games at 1080p. Games such as GTA5, FarCry 3, Saints Row IV and the like run in console quality and sometimes better.
