    Another good review - any chance of Hexus reviewing the A10-5700 or even the A6-5400K??

    I'm looking forward to the A6-5400K review, as it appears to have higher 3d performance than it ought to based on the hardware available to it.

    Looks like a "probably" to me Although the A6-5400K would be an interesting review ... can we have one? Please?

    Re: Reviews - AMD A8-5600K APU

    Most reviews show it idling at lower draw than Llano, so as Tarinder says in the review that might be an artefact of the motherboard used. 30W is still pretty good for an entire system...

    Thanks for the review. The overclocking result was a little misleading, because you've used the faster RAM and you've already showed on the previous page that this by itself increases performance, yet the graphs show the figures with the slower RAM for the non-overclocked CPU.

    What Hexus should do is compare those CPU's with one distracted GPU to show how much difference CPU makes in games. Not only using integrated GPU's

    Good review! I hope Hexus use the A75 chipset for the reviews of the lower power AMD APUs they review and not the most expensive A85.

    Good review but it is missing one of my favourite features of old Hexus reviews, bang4buck analysis.

    True, true. I'm getting a little too obsessed with making the ultimate low power box these days.

    Given that I just want something under the TV for Youtube and 1080p video, even underclocked this shouldn't have an issue.

    Seriously considering this and a PicoPSU.

    I wonder what the A4 5300 FM2 pulls at idle?
