I didn't know what to expect when I ordered this APU. I had read that the motherboard I selected required a BIOS update for proper FM2+/Kaveri support, so I figured this would be a good prep CPU, which i could then repurpose for a HTPC / Server / Wife / Whatever build later on.
I guess at this point, coming up from a Phenom 9850, pretty much anything would be an upgrade. I'm pleased for now, and this will most likely become my server processor once I upgrade to a Zen/AM4 build next year.
