Very powerful APU!

I don't use the iGPU anymore now that I have a dedicated GPU, but it still serves well for raw processing power.

For video encoding and replay the platform has been perfect.

I bought this hoping to build a decent HTPC rig that could handle any media I throw at it as well as anything else I didn't think of. I didn't build this for gaming and have not tested the APU against any graphics-intense games.
I was worried at first that the stock heatsink/fan would be too loud for an HTPC, but I was wrong. Even under full load, this thing is quiet and cool (I can barely hear it unless I put my head right next to the case). I think this is in part due to the fact it is only 65W TDP. Having the three cores is a nice bonus (would have bought the 4-core with 65W TDP if I could find it for sale...), but the three cores are more than enough for all multimedia, browsing the Internet, decompressing files, etc. Blu-Ray playback is butter-smooth as is all multimedia I've thrown at it.

All in all, a perfect processor/GPU combination for a great price that does everything I wanted it too very smoothly.

My HTPC build for those who are curious:
APEX DM-317 mATX Case w/275Watt PSU
ASUS F1A75-M Pro Motherboard
AMD A6-3500 APU (these APUs are perfect for HTPCs...get the lower TDP ones like the 65W to keep things cool and quiet)
Crucial 64GB m4 SSD (not really necessary, but the boot time is literally like 10 seconds)
2x Old MAXTOR 160GB SATA drives (RAID 0)
LG Blu-Ray Burner (not sure which model, I bought it like 2.5 years ago)
8GB Kingston HyperX 1600Mhz DDR3 (for 64bit Windows 7 Pro)
Enermax UC-8EB 80mm silent case fan

A truly lovely chip for those wanting value and energy savings. Make sure to upgrade the graphics driver when you install, [...] If you're not a game freak, but want a simple chip that runs fast and solid, and does hd, the 3500 is a good riide. Might want to try a quieter fan, but the one included does just fine.

I purchased this product in combination with a Gigabyte AMD Socket FM1 Dual Graphic Micro ATX Motherboard GA-A75M-S2V, a SAMSUNG 830 Series 2.5-Inch 64GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-7PC064B/WW, and Kingston Technology HyperX Blu 8GB 1333MHz DDR3 Non-ECC CL9 DIMM (Kit of 2) KHX1333C9D3B1K2/8G. For my standard Windows 7 application usage, I am very impressed. My Windows Experience Index is in the 6-7 range, and all of the programs that I run function flawlessly. From a standard productivity viewpoint, I have a very powerful PC at a very low cost. I have not noticed any noise coming from the CPU fan - certainly nowhere near the level of noise that comes from the AMD-81xx CPU's I've owned.

As regards productivity I have had no issues with APU performance. All of my office utilities load up lightning fast and I have had no crashes. Driver support is flawless in Windows 7. Just make sure to go online and install the latest drivers / Catalyst software directly from the AMD website; there is no need for third-party driver download software. As regards image software, I use GIMP for graphics editing, and this APU works wonderfully. Web browsing is fast, and DirectX support is up to date. Picasa software works lightning fast - no complaints here.

As for videos and entertainment, please note that I am not a gamer. I do watch 720p and 1080p h264 and x264 videos, though.

I bought this CPU for a little over $60 for a cheap gaming build. For a while I relied on the integrated graphics, but later made the decision to buy a Radeon HD 7700 series GPU. I decided to test the iGPU with Dirt 3 as it's advertised on the packaging. The game ran pretty well just under maxed settings. Overall I'm very pleased with the performance of the iGPU. It could even tackle Skyrim on Mid-High settings. While Skyrim did put up quite a fight I still found the performance was well enough to provide an enjoyable game experience. I don't use the iGPU anymore now that I have a dedicated GPU, but it still serves well for raw processing power. Just today I participated in the Battlefield 4 Beta and the processor did it's best to keep up. In my opinion it did quite well paired with my GPU. Sadly it still needs to be replaced as the performance in the game wasn't good for quality playing conditions. I've chosen to rate this 5 stars because of the extra performance I got out of it while it was overclocked. From 2.1Ghz to 4.0Ghz it kept around 30 degrees idling and around 50-65 under full load. Overall, very pleased with my purchase and I'd recommend it to anyone for a solid, novice, APU build :)

I bought this to fit into my HTPC since it was a good price. Decent speed, easy to install, and again a great price.

Very powerful APU! This is the heart of the HTPC I built to run XBMC on top of Windows. Runs Windows 7 without skipping a beat!
For the price, it's a cheap alternative to Intel CPUs.
