    :

    As much as I like this CPU and support AMD, I think after this CPU I’m going with an intel processor for the sole reason that I can’t run Android emulators well on an AMD processor. There are emulators designed for ARM processors which can run with AMD chips but it’s very very slow compared to an intel supported emulator (My laptop’s i5 can run emulator’s faster and smoother than this beast).
    AMD, I see you recently trying to one up Intel with your Ryzen and Threadripper but none of that hardware matters if you don’t get software support. I do hope this changes so I can stick with AMD.

    Recommended if running a FX-6100 or such, change now if not upgrading to a new motherboard AM4 socket.

    AM3+ is on its way out. Before purchasing, check with your motherboard and video card specs to see if you want to remain in this family, or upgrade to a different socket type for a little extra. If you remain in AM3+, this is the card to choose.

    No more metal case which isn’t that big a deal, but most people would keep the case and maybe toss change in it. Free advertising, even if one person said what is a …..you get the idea. I am really surprised and disappointed I didn’t get a cool sticker to put on my case. The Phenom II came with a very cool puffy sticker so you could fly the colors. Once again, you guys don’t want the free advertising that gives it’s your loss. 6/17 update: Well, it’s been almost four years now and I am deciding on some fans to replace a couple case fans with bearing issues. This cpu is excellent in all respects. IT sits in Phantom 820 on a ASUS crosshair V Formula-Z and with air cooling this thing idles at 30c and runs at 45c under load. I had to disconnect the top 200mm fan because the bearing went out and running a burn in program it did hit 46c for little bit which made me wince. Thinking about it I remembered that I am 20c away from supposed max temperatures. Watching the performance this CPU runs so smooth as you can see the turbo application kick in and it pumps up to 4.2 GHz. I have never considered overclocking because I don’t see a need for it. I was just reading about the new seventh generation Intel chip which runs at 4.2 GHz if you want to pay $340 for it. I know there is more going on than just that but I also know that a huge percentage of gamers install way too much for what they need and future proofing…well that’s kind of silly isn’t it. When the time finally comes that I might need an upgrade I do what I did with this purchase: take plenty of time to research the available products to determine what will meet my needs for at least four to five years and purchase what seems to be the obvious choice. I suspect I have quite a bit of time until that happens unless something very radical happens on the gaming front.
