It has no problem with 20mbps video files.

The iGpu works well, I am able to play Crysis one no problem at a decent frame rate with the right settings.

This is a really good CPU. I have built two PC's with this processor and
they are trouble free and very fast. The built in graphics processor is impressive.

I am not a gamer, but playing HD movies on multiple screens is possible with this unit.

For any budget builder you can put together a low cost system for about $350 with this
chip. Make sure you have 8GB of memory or more to optimize performance. You will get
about a 15-20% improvement over 4GB or main memory.

You won't be able to build a comparable Intel unit unless you are willing to spend $500
or more. Which is why I still use AMD CPU's. For budget builds they are the best.
Many of my systems are still running 5 years later & longer.

If you mainly use your machine for surfing, viewing movies, photo's, & documents
then this is a really impressive machine. It handles multi-tasking really well.
You can have Anti-virus software scanning, and de-frag the HD and still surf without
any lag.

I bought this to run a new HTPC. I was new to HTPC and set up a Plex server. Initially this guy ran great when I was watching movies internally. Then I started sharing my library with family and it would stutter while trying to transcode to a remote site and play 1080p locally. The server is running a plethora of services as well as the theater oriented stuff so to be fair I wasn't surprised. Transcoding can be pretty hard on a cpu.

I also ran Civilization IV and some other minor games, but didn't heavily test the gpu side of things. It ran the game I tried perfectly.

I would recommend this over the 'K' variants for an HTPC since it's a 65w chip instead of the 100w that you get with the overclockable variety. You're not likely to take advantage of the OC in an HTPC and you'll save on your e-bill.

I ended up upgrading to the 6700 and it's been running without a hitch even when transcoding. So if you're building a light-use HTPC this is the answer. If you need a little more capability go with the 6700.

Bought the Quad Core Richland AMD A8-6500 CPU as a substitute for a A6-5400 dual core primarily because I do some photo editing and make the occasional DVD using photos and movies. The dual core A6-5400 is a bit slow at times for this task.
At first I was hesitant to substitute a new CPU in my HP Pavilion P6-2327c since I was painfully aware that WIN7 and WIN8 will not allow significant hardware changes without asking for a new product key. But some research on the Internet seemed to indicate that a CPU swap would not trigger the request for a new product key.
CPU arrived on time and installation was a breeze. While the CPU did come with its own fan I did not need the new fan because the fan from the older CPU was actually superior in appearance and feel. I added a small amount of thermal grease to the top of the new CPU inserted it bolted everything back down and was finished within 20 minutes tops. Turned on the machine and WIN8 booted without a hitch. Haven't tried any serious photo editing yet or DVD movie creation. Obviously the machine is zippier but haven't run any tests to see the difference in speed. Highly recommend the substitution which costs just over $100.

Great so far.. Installed on a MSI motherboard with 8 GB of memory it has run flawlessly. I will add to this after 3+ months of running FSX and my normal daily 4 + hours of games , online,etc.

This is a very fast processor. I built a computer for my son to play many different games on. He plays minecraft with many mods loaded and it doesn't glitch. Very happy. I want one too.

For a 65w apu... lthis one really rocks. Just make sure to throw in some nice ddr3-1866 ram, and use the latest final AMD video drivers, and if possible go with windows 8.1, this chip LOVES 8.1. Very impressed with the speed overall.

Bought this to replace the A4 that powered my media PC. The cheap A4 was great at streaming 1080p video off the internet but couldn't cut it when it came to higher bit-rate bluray rips. This A8 handles any media I throw at it and stays nice and cool in the process. It has no problem with 20mbps video files.

This is a great APU. The iGpu works well, I am able to play Crysis one no problem at a decent frame rate with the right settings. I wasn't expecting this system to perform that well. As for the CPU side of things, it is decent. Windows 7 will run alright if you keep it running light. With added bloat this CPU struggles a little. Honestly, when I bought this I was expecting the CPU to be better and the iGpu to be worse. I am very happy with this APU but it really should be cheaper considering it is an older part.
