I must say I am quite happy with this purchase. I bought this CPU along with RAM, Motherboard, and Case for about $170 all combined...opened up an Amazon Credit Card and got just about everything I needed for an HTPC for about $120 ($50 promotional credit for opening the Amazon Visa).

I am using this CPU mainly as an HTPC. I do not have cable service so I do not use it for any encoding and I cannot comment on how it would do for this, but for web browsing, Youtube, Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, etc, it runs fine.

Netflix on a Windows PC is, unfortunately, very processor intensive due to Silverlight and its DRM requirements, which actually keeps this CPU at around 60-70% when watching HD.

The computer I'm using this CPU in is running Windows Server 2008 R2 and is also functioning as a domain controller with a few roles (DHCP, DNS, Hyper-V with 2 VMs (Win 7 for remote access and Linux for a fileserver) and has not been having any trouble. I have not really tried too much with gaming on this APU but I plan on getting a AMD Radeon HD 6570 discrete graphics card to go along with it in the near future. This is the discrete card which AMD recommends to take advantage of the "Dual Graphics" option for this line of APUs. There are several models of graphics cards with this chipset available on Amazon between $40 and $70 right now and I feel like this would be a worthwhile upgrade should I ever decide to game with this APU.

I do some light video editing so nothing to intensive and this processor has`t fail on me yet. Games are actuall nice and the games I`ve played is League of legends, Grind 3, Minecraft, Left for dead 2 and more. In my opinion I find that I get better fps on Windows 7 than Windows 8. For Minecraft players out there is cpu is alright but don`t expect best proformance. The more mods you put in the slower gameplay will be so be carefull. HD content is awesome, nothing has slowed down yet. This cpu will be great for people who is just doing light gaming and web browsing. Hope it helped you out.

The stock clocks with turbo disabled tested more than good enough for my HTPC build, so I concentrated on lowest energy use and heat. Stability testing was done with IntelBurnTest, 3DMark11 and Furmark. Post/boot tests showed that NB/GFX voltage could not go quite as low as they could in Windows, but the difference was minimal. The voltages below are fully stable and what I am running at now:

CPU = 1.125 volts (BIOS) stable for 1 hour IBT (30+ passes)
NB/GFX = 0.975 volts (BIOS) stable 3DMark11 (multiple passes) and 3 hours Furmark

Energy use tested at wall with Kill-a-Watt (monitor not included):

Sleep = 2 watts; Windows desktop @ idle = 17 watts; Netflix HD movie streaming = 25-30 watts; IBT = 49 watts; Furmark = 58 watts

The numbers say it all. All around efficient little processor for HTPC.

I bought this processor for my home theatre PC, and the graphics are great. The streaming video is awesome, and the price point seems really reasonable. I definitely feel like this provides great bang for my buck!

Selected this for a custom build for a computer for a music teacher. It is the dual-core version, but the program she uses favors clocks, not cores, so I slimmed the build costs by going dual instead of quad core. This is the ninth box I have built with the A-series of APUs, and not one has failed to impress. There are stronger chips out there, but these have a rare balance between high graphics capability without a card and good computing power without the high price. I tend to use these chips in Media/HTPC builds and in multi-role light- to medium-duty rigs. As a side note, if you want to see what these can do without suffering bottle-necking from other components, use it with DDR3/1866 or better RAM and a SSD instead of a platter drive. The bottlenecking of platter drives hurts these chips disproportionately and the faster the RAM, the tighter the GPU side runs, which gives better performance. Also, I have noticed that most versions of Linux do not have very good chipset drivers for the A-series, as compared to the Windows versions.

I work from home. My dad bought this to build my computer. It does a wonderful job. I also use it to watch streaming movies and TV. He has it slightly over clocked. The unit reminds cool with only the factory fan. I also played some games on it and the graphics have been very nice.

Let's face it. Intel has beaten AMD by mile the last few years in processor performance. Nothing can touch the I7 series for sure processing power. You also pay a premium for them. Most people don't take advantage of this raw computing power unless you are doing video editing, Digital Audio work or heavy gaming type applications. The typical person uses their computer for e-mail, word processing and internet browsing. If that is you - why not save some money and buy this processor.

I was looking for a low cost machine to store and access over 1000 albums I had ripped to FLAC files. I wanted it all on a single hard drive so I could access my music quickly at home without having to search through all my CD's. I purchased this processor as part of DIY machine build. The cost was incredibly inexpensive and I didn't need a ton of computing power for this task. I had recently built a computer for a neighbor using the A4 version and was quite impressed with how it performed. This processor was just a step up from the A4 with a little faster clock speed.

My machine ended up becoming more than just an audio server as I recently dumped my cable bill for streaming video content from the internet. This PC is connected to a very good outboard DAC via a USB connection for audio and I also have it connected to my 54 inch Plasma HD TV via an HDMI connection. (Just using the built in video processor of this APU)

This dual core APU doesn't miss a beat. I'm running windows 8.1 and it handles everything I throw at it. I never overclocked it and it handles audio as well as video serving tasks with finese. In fact, it does it's job much better than I ever thought it would. I never see any lag on HD video output.
