Quoted from AMD A8-5600K Reviews:Check out these quotes from AMD A8-5600K reviews & previews
"Functionally, the A8-5600K is very robust. With the increase in encryption performance that AMD stressed on this second generation of APUs, you can really depend on the A8-5600K for just about anything you need. As an internet browsing, YouTube watching, small-time gaming, Netflix and Hulu machine, the A8-5600K offers more than you will ever need. If you plan on bumping up your gaming or using very CPU intensive software, then you probably already have something else in mind that will cost quite a bit more."
"Price wise you’ll be looking at just under the £80 mark for the APU itself and then obviously you have a large range of boards across three chipsets to go for, but we do recommend the A85x chipset and a good brand such as Gigabyte like we used today as it shows that they work really well together, it’s just a shame that the APU didn’t manage to offer a little bit more performance on the CPU side of things."
"Overall the A8-5600k is a solid entry to mid level chip. For the average PC user this is a great processor. You get pretty good CPU performance and surprisingly decent GPU performance as well. Gaming on the 5600k without a discrete GPU is a possibility even in some of the more graphically intense games. But gaming really isn’t what this chip is built for. The 5600k handles everyday tasks such as web browsing, light photo and video editing, and watching high-def movies with ease. And for the ultra productive type, the onboard 7560 has plenty of power to drive 3 monitors."
