CPU speed comparable to similarly priced Intel Core i3.
Great GPU performance for integrated graphics.
Low power consumption.
SATA III and USB 3.0 natively supported.
Supports DDR3 up to 1866MHz.
DirectX 11 GPU.
Many modern games playable with on-chip graphics at low settings.
Premium RAM required for best graphics performance.
Lacks Turbo Core tech.
Performance lags behind the Intel Core i3 in light threaded tasks.
Expected somewhat better Stasticial Performance.
Lacks and L3 Cache.
Slightly immature drivers.
Concerns remain about FM1's lifespan.
Requires new motherboard to take advantage of all features.
