Even underpowered, it peaks at over 3.9 GHz and I know it would easily do more once the new power source arrives. The temperature still stays pretty low as well.
This is my first fully custom pc, and I am absolutely thrilled at the performance compared to the cost. The closest similarly equipped computer I could have purchased from a retailer was over $900. With this processor, the motherboard, case, RAM, and other items, this cost me less than $400. I can run the Xbox App and stream at the highest quality now with no glitches or lag, and my old favorite pc game Flight Simulator can now be played at full graphics and settings paired with the discreet graphics card. I dual boot into Windows 8.1 for work, and so far everything seems to load a lot faster. On both Windows 10 and 8.1, there are no more sudden forced closes, no more glitches when watching video on Amazon Prime or YouTube.
For this to be a low cost processor, I'm impressed. You can bet my next processor upgrade will be an AMD.
I was running a AMD A6-6400 K. I run an FM2+ Gigabyte A88X mobo with 8 Gig Ram, and an ATI HD-6950. I mostly play Star Trek Online, and my 6400K ran 2 processors at 100% all the time. With the 860K, All 4 run between 50-60%. This is running all setting max on 1920x1080. I'm not getting the bad jittering while playing big space battles. It got to be a slideshow on the 6400K, but haven't experienced that on the 860K.
I also have played SWTOR (didn't have any issues on the 860K). I was able to up the video setting from Medium to High (maybe even Very High) with no issues.
Also, running Win10 with no issues. Just FYI.
As someone who grew up with AMD and has tons of good experiences (primarily using i7's now), I'm extremely impressed with the performance and the compatibility of the 860k and how it integrates into the build as a whole. I would definitely recommend overclocking the processor at a minimum 4.2ghz w/ Turbo Off, as once you hit the x42 Multiplier, you will notice a strong gain in real-life scenarios, as it seems to be hitting a certain minimum performance threshold on a x64 Win7 Ultimate w/ lots of software. This processor is the definition of hitting a very respectable level of power while only costing around 75~USD. However, make sure to invest in a very strong cooling system, also make sure the fan will fit too as the Cooler Master Hyper Evo is super popular/performs well but very tall. Paired with the R7 360 OC'ed, this combo makes for a decent gaming computer for popular online games and some bigger AAA titles @ 1080p, depending on how much you like to 'optimize' your graphic settings. Heat output is okay especially at OC levels but nothing that a well fitted fan and Silver-based thermal compound can't take care of. Pretty high power consumption, but that just comes with the territory of a processor like this. Overall great processor, has a pretty high potential ceiling, super strong performance once past 4.2ghz, and the price just makes this unit so hard to fault. Even at much higher standards, if you have low temps while pushing the processor higher, you can start rivaling other bigger Intel processor lines, at-least in benchmarks, not always in real-world. You'll start noticing dips when really pushing all 4 cores/threads, but within very reasonable limits, I haven't seen any issues or big complaints (Game + Firefox/Pandora + Peripherals) Lastly, don't look at the FX series and such, those are much harder to pair up or get up and running at their 100% efficiency due to certain mobos,etc. For a pretty efficient $500 build, this processor definitely can carry its weight and then some more. Awesome processor for sure.
BTW I bought ASUS A88XM-A and despite old bios 1301 I was able to boot to windows dowload newer bios 2701 and flash mobo sucessfully. Other thoughts: Since some AMD FX's are couple with GTX 970, my guess is this 4 core cpu, wich is faster single threaded than most AM3, will work just fine for ultra gaming at most recent games, maybe any high end video card will work. Check some videos in youtube anyway for newest games examples. I do have GTX 950 2GB and all games runs great but I've seen better benchmarks and speeds with R9 380 and GTX 970. My 860k oc at 4.2 ghz with stock fan, 115 multiplier and memory at 1533 mhz. Higher than that makes no sense. Using coretemp, temps are fine from 20 to 50, almost 60 at long heavy gaming but is ok anyway. My psu is 450 w no problem but you may need higher psu with GTX 970 or R9. Watt consumption obviously goes up maybe 50 w more when oc at 4.2 or higher playing intensive games with GTX 950. Thanks
