My 10 year old pc has this and it can barely run anything


2 years ago.

Its good, like its in the middle, not bad, not too good. This CPU is the first bottleneck of my PC. I'm gonna soon move to an Ryzen 3 1200 that is gonna make my GPU go full speed, full potential. That will make the games that I play smoother (I usually play some basic games like, HL2 and GMOD.). I love this CPU. I had this CPU from when I even got my first PC! This CPU is giving me nostalgia how I played GTA:VC on 60 FPS. (I had about 2-4GB of DDR3 ram.) Well, This is the end of this comment about this CPU. Hope you liked it.

cannot stand apu's. finding the correct drivers has been impossible. my system constantly crashes because of it and its not like it even has good graphics capabilities even. Boo AMD, Booooooo.

good, reliable, with low consumption. I don t understand why so many users are going mad to have the best CPUs while except for games of high level complexity, the A8 is more than enough to do anything you usually do with a computer and without the desperate need to play overcomplex games. Madness. For the USA user: i can run with A8.5500b 3 different video players and still not even put in hot condition this CPU. So perhaps it-s you who can not run anything.
