B0055ZCXUK: AMD A6-3650 APU with AMD Radeon 6530 HD Graphics

Delivering powerful serial and parallel computing capabilities for HD video, 3D rendering, and data-intensive workloads in a single-die processor, AMD's A-Series APUs offer unprecedented power and potential in an ever smaller package.

AMD A8 Series APU
Experience brilliant desktop performance with AMD's A-Series APU.

This 2.6 GHz AMD A6-3650 APU combines four x86 CPU cores with an AMD Radeon HD 6530D graphics processor featuring dedicated HD video processing and DirectX 11 support--all on a single chip. AMD A-Series APUs also allow for advanced capabilities such as gestural interfaces, multi-monitor support, 3D entertainment and real-time image stabilization (additional hardware may be required).

Additionally, AMD's dynamic switchable graphics capabilities optimize power consumption on PCs featuring AMD dual-graphics solutions by intelligently managing power states on the APU and a separate discrete AMD Radeon GPU.

Build or upgrade your desktop with this AMD A6-3650 APU and a compatible FM1 socket-compatible motherboard (sold separately; see a range of options below).

What is an APU?

Personal computers have traditionally been built with a central processing unit (CPU) that handled the bulk of the system processing and was linked to a graphics processing unit (GPU), which was used for rendering 2D and 3D images.

CPU GPU
Traditional PC architecture with separate central and graphics processing units.

 

APU = CPU + GPU
The accelerated processing unit (APU) combines the CPU and GPU on a single chip.

An accelerated processing unit (APU) combines a powerful AMD processor and a discrete-class, DirectX 11-capable GPU on a single chip. The APU can quickly offload demanding tasks and applications from your CPU to the GPU, enabling you to do more with your computer in less time.

AMD's A-Series APUs accelerate daily applications while also delivering lower power consumption than previous AMD processor-based desktop platforms. For example, enhanced hardware acceleration delivers smooth online streaming of HD content and web browsing that's up to 3 times faster. Some of the over 50 applications that benefit from accelerated processing include Windows Internet Explorer 9, Firefox 4, Microsoft Office, and Adobe Flash Player.

 

Gaming
Faster, more vivid and lifelike gaming.

Brilliant HD: Every Pixel Matters

Complementing the quad-core processing power of the AMD A6-3650 APU is an AMD Radeon HD 6530D graphics processing unit and the cutting-edge AMD VISION Engine, which combine to provide powerful DirectX 11-capable discrete-level graphics and dedicated HD video processing on a single chip.

A key feature of AMD's VISION Engine is the Radeon Core (also called a GPU shader processor), which calculate rendering effects with a high degree of flexibility for customized effects. The AMD Radeon HD 6530D contains 320 Radeon Cores, which compares to 80 Radeon Cores found on the AMD E-350 accelerated processor.

You'll enjoy crystal clear HD video playback and dynamic post-processing, and web sites will render faster with accelerated HTML5 and Direct2D performance. Editing, transferring and viewing HD content is fast and easy with support for advanced connection standards, including HDMI 1.4a, DisplayPort 1.1, and USB 3.0, along with native support for multiple monitors. And AMD's A-Series APUs include a new feature called AMD Steady Video, which is designed to stabilize videos during playback--making unsteady, jumpy content look steady and smooth.

DirectX 11 is the very latest in high-speed, high-fidelity gaming and computing. Featuring technologies like Compute Shaders, Direct2D, Multithreaded Rendering and Tessellation, DirectX 11 can enable not just more visually stunning games, but significant performance improvements in some of your favorite websites and everyday applications.

I've wanted to get one of the new AMD APU's since their release a few months ago. For those who don't know 'APU' means accelerated processing unit which is a fancy way of saying there is a CPU and GPU (discrete graphics card) combined as one on this chip. I went to my local computer superstore intent on buying the flagship APU A8-3850 but it was out of stock so I got the A6-3650 model instead with the major difference being the 2.6ghz base core speed vs. 2.8ghz and the 320 graphics shading cores vs. the A8's 400.

I went for an extreme budget build at first meaning I wanted to use as many existing parts on hand and spend as little money possible to upgrade a 5 yr old core2duo system whose motherboard was acting up (it wouldn't stay on). I removed and replaced the CPU, Memory, and motherboard with the A6-3650 APU($115), 4gb of DDR3 1600mhz($30), and Fm1A75-M mobo($99) for less than $250 pre tax. I was able to use my old Sata HDD (180GB) and full size ATX case but not my old CDROM as it used Pata not Sata. I loaded Windows 7 using an external DVD I had laying around.

Once up and running I updated the video drivers with the CD included with my Mobo and ran the Windows Experience Index (WEI). CPU- 7.2 MEMORY- 7.4 DESKTOP GRAPHICS- 6.6 GAMING GRAPHICS- 6.6 HD- 5.7. I was pleasantly surprised by these scores as my previous system barely scored 4.8 on CPU in WEI. Also the integrated graphics now matched my other rig that has a dedicated GTS8800 graphics card which was more than $200 when purchased. It is worth noting that the other rig requires a 500w power supply and has a big ugly case.

As an HTPC, this APU is perfect. It streams and plays media with the greatest of ease.

The AMD APU series of CPUs are very economical and affordable. They might not stack up so well next to the AMD phenom or intel i3's, but there is plenty of CPU power for multimedia streaming, playback, and capable data processing (creating videos, photoshop, converting files, etc.). It's not going to fly through tasks, but it will give you enough power to do things at a reasonably quick speed.

CPU temperature and stock fan: the CPU stays fairly cool, ranging from 30 F to 45 F. It rarely gets too hot. The stock fan has a nice cooling sink. At default, the fan isn't very quiet. I have turned down the fan to about 50% of the full potential, which keeps the noise almost whisper quiet. But just keep in mind: I don't have any other installed fans, which seems to magnify the noise of this stock fan. If you are building a PC with this CPU stock fan as the only fan, you will certainly have some distinguishable noise.

Cores: The 4 cores give any PC some extra juice and processing power. Many programs and games still only use two cores, and this processor can handle just about anything. Multi tasking with multiple browser tabs and micosoft office programs is a breeze. For the sake of the future, I decided on the quad core, especially since it was only about $15 - $20 more than the dual core APU.

Graphics (GPU) - I was surprised that not many people who have reviewed this product tested the graphics card to its limit. I have the HIS PCI-Express Video Card (H685F1GD), which can run most high end games at the highest settings, and I was hoping this APU could at least run high end games at low resolutions.

I've got this chip installed on the ASRock A75M-ITX Mini ITX motherboard and they are a match made in heaven. I wouldn't recommend this for avid gamers but the chip IS very capable at medium and lower graphics settings in most games. WoW runs pretty smooth at high settings and is like BUTTER ad medium. Video playback does not disappoint NOR does general windows performance.

If you are looking for a compact system, low power consumption with decent graphics..... or a great price you can't go wrong with this chip.

I used this processor to set up a system using an Apeiva X-DREAMER3-PK ATX Pink Mid Tower Case w/ a Gigabyte motherboard. Super easy install for someone with a little experience building computers. Even using just the onboard integrated graphics without adding a video card the system is fast and my daughter is thrilled with her new super fast computer. Excellent processor for the price!

Purchased this processor for use in a new system for my mom, it's a very good performer for the price, for my mom's use its overkill but she keeps systems for many years, her last one was almost 10 years old.

With quad core and a very good integrated graphics it will be quick machine for years to come.

I'm currently running this processor on a Asus F1A75-I deluxe, a mini ITX mobo, and 4GB of 1600 RAM and a 250W PSU, I can run Crysis on High, although the FPS does suffer, but find that with medium settings it finds a good balance, I know that referencing Crysis as the standard is getting a little old 4/5 years since it's release, but for this CPU it works. For the price, this CPU is amazing. A must have for HTPC especially if you plan to do some casual gaming on it.
