Pros: Great CPU, good iGPU, Great value overall!

Cons: None

At 2.5GHz dual-core CPU with a discrete class iGPU, this APU is tough to beat in terms of overall value.
The CPU is great for general computing like internet browsing, emails, apps, productivity applications, HD videos/movies, music, and even some gaming. Multi-tasking is actually pretty good with this APU as long as you pair it with good RAM.

By all means it's not meant to be a gaming APU, but thanks to its good iGPU, gaming at 720p/med settings(no AA no shadows)/45-60 FPS is easily achievable. The CPU alone is good enough to be used with a decent discrete GPU, but pairing it with a recommended discrete Radeon enables crossfire/dual-graphics with its iGPU for a nice graphics performance boost.

Overall a great CPU with a good iGPU, especially for HTPC builds!


I just want to throw this in:
A tech store sales person discouraged me from getting this or any AMD APU's. He recommended an Intel Celeron instead. His co-worker even argued that Intel CPU's are the best and their iGPU's are as good as AMD, therefore making Intel the #1 choice.

I don't know if he was just trying to push Intel because tech stores in general get more attention from Intel (monthly visits, partner promos/incentives, rewards, etc.), or simply because Intel cost more across the board for higher commission/points, but seemed like a sales pitch for customers who haven't done research.

Anyway, not to sound like a marketing ad, but here's a good thing to remember if someone brings up Intel CPUs w/iGPU vs. AMD APUs...
Both AMD and Intel CPU's have iGPUs (most if not all). The difference is AMD APUs iGPUs are "discrete-class" (it's a Radeon!), while the Intel iGPUs are "onboard-class" (remember the old MB onboard GPU's?).
