Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great entry level CPU, Combined GPU a bonus for beginner PC's! Great little processor, turbo at 4GHz dual core with low heat temp. Graphics are basic but good for intergrated, good for basic games when used with a decent HDD and moderate amount of RAM. Also the stock CPU cooler included (fan) keeps the temp low enough to be safe. I have rated as excellent for the entry level market. 15 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great CPU for the value! This CPU absolutely wowed me after completing my first Mid-Range Build. Its speed and accuracy running low-intensity tasks was spectacular, and it was able to run not very demanding games at a good FPS. Based on its price, I have no negatives for this product. Looking for a low-price, decent CPU Capable of doing all your everyday tasks with ease? Buy the AMD A6-6400K. 08 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by At the new lower price of £36 this is a bargain Ended up taking the plunge with an AMD A series APU for my HTPC. I previously had an AM3 Athlon with a Radeon 3000 integrated GPU. I am VERY impressed with this CPU. Performance in Windows 8.1 is snappy, plays back HD video in XBMC flawlessly. It runs at a sensible temp (36c idle 55c - 60c load). I've only seen it at full load when pushing it playing Civ5 with details set high @ 720p. The bundled cooler is decent quality and not too noisy and I haven't felt the need to replace it (as I have with all AM3 chips I've bought.) Even the picture quality is improved over my old setup. Also best of all I used a power meter to test and the complete system runs @ 24 watts idle and the max load I've registered is 64 watts. While playing HD movies on XBMC is runs at a steady 33 watts. For comparison the 65w TDP AM3 Athlon system run at 42 watts idle, +100 watts full tilt and 53 watts while playing back HD video. So this is a massive improvement on every front. For £36 this has to beat the Pentium hands down and the cheapest i3 is £80! I highly recommend this CPU for a HTPC application or even for a home / office PC. Dedicated gaming PC though I think you would be disappointed... 01 December 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Does what it says on the tin Decent CPU with an integrated GPU capable of doing most everyday tasks. If you want it for gaming though you are probably better off getting a dedicated graphics card. It's a cheap chip so you can't expect too much from it. The one major issue I had with this CPU is that it runs really hot. Maybe I got a bad chip but at stock speeds with 100% CPU, the temperature was reaching 85 degrees C. That's not a healthy temperature. I had to buy a separate aftermarket CPU cooler and good thermal paste (Arctic MX-4). The CPU now idles around 40 degrees C (still not great but my case isn't the best) and 70-something under full load (at 4100 MHz). Pretty happy with it now, but AMD chips are known for running hot so they really should include a better cooler. TLDR: If you buy this CPU get a heatsink and fan while you're at it. 05 March 2014
