    A good balanced part but I reckon the upgrade path might be too steep a price for many considering the gains aren't that great...
    Old puter - still good enuff till I save some pennies!

    What has happened to Hexus Bang4Buck analysis? It was such a useful bit of the review, bring it back.

    I'd definitely recommend the AMD APU over Intel's i3 offerings. Hopefully the next change brings the CPU side of things closer because I suspect a lot of people would not choose AMD based on that.

    It would be nice to compare the 4 trinity APUs available against each other to get an idea of the best value APU.

    Good review, but bang-for-buck and comparison of motherboard prices would make this far more useful for real world decisions.

    For a budget PC it looks like it's Trinity ftw. I hope they manage to get the chips and motherboards in stock - finding the latest generation laptops is like looking for a needle in a haystack with all the old stock kicking around.

    No fast RAM comparison?

    Not overclocking the CPU and then running game benchmarks is a bit of a dun-goof as well. We know there is a potent GPU on the package with a gimped CPU - overclocking the CPU may yield better results than raising the GPU's frequency up. Can you not overclock both at the same time?

    If you want to buy a new computer for 720p gaming then it's great.

    I guess a lot depends on how well dual graphics works.

    But these ship with a recommended frequency of 1866 to begin with. It isn't too hard to knock a multiplier up and down.

    I didn't see anything in this one about further articles, though.

    Regarding the A10-5700,it appears no one is selling it either!! Its been available in pre-built desktops for months. Another AMD marketing fail.

    Any chance Hexus can get the A6-5400K in for review?? It would be interesting to see how this does against the Pentiums both at stock clockspeeds and overclocked.

    Ebuyer have it on pre-order for £90

    Be interesting to see how much it loses out in the x86 benchmarks, and how much of that is offset by power savings.

    EDIT: just to add: Holy Cow! I just realised that 2133MHz RAM + GPU overclock == 20% better graphics performance in 3D Mark Vantage

    Nice review. I agree that the power characteristics appear to be the Achilles heel in what appears to be a very solid £100 chip.
