AMD set its sights on desktops in emerging markets last month, announcing its AM1 platform and the first Kabini-based socket APUs. The platform is more flexible than other budget SoCs, which typically come soldered to motherboards. But in terms of performance how does it compare to the competition?

If your computing needs and budget are both light, but upgradability matters, the Athlon 5350 is a good CPU/GPU to build a low-cost PC around. Opt for something more powerful, though, if you do anything CPU- or graphics-heavy....

What the AM1 platform really has to offer is the ability to put a low cost and low power system just about anywhere. The ability to build a small form factor system for use as an HTPC or as a NAS unit is certainly a possibility, or maybe you want to...

It might come as a surprise but performance-wise, Kabini isn't a disappointment. As we said earlier in the review, AMD has stated that it's not out there to compete with Kaveri or its range of CPUs; its more akin to improving the stakes at the lower...

The AM1 platform does a solid job of bridging the gap between AMD's embedded predecessors and fully-featured APUs. The Athlon 5350's CPU and GPU performance fall well short of the latest Kaveri chips, but it has helped raise the floor for entry level...

The poignant place to start with the final analysis is AMD's claim of ‘Quad Core for Less'. In this statement alone, they are not wrong. Intel cannot provide a socketed quad core processor for less than $36 (Sempron 3850). The cheapest all-in-one desktop...

AMD's decision to offer the Kabini APU in desktop socketed form is a wise one. Four Jaguar CPU cores are more than capable of handling everyday applications used by millions of people - indeed, they're pound-for-pound better than the Steamroller cores...

This was something of a wild ride. I have always had an attraction to budget and midrange products, and I think a big part of that is seeing where that sweet spot of price vs. performance really falls. I like to tweak things to see where I can...

AMD AM1 平台從測試來看,一般的文書、影音皆能勝任沒有問題,至於3D的部份用來處理一些陽春的遊戲還算是可以,其實測試快打旋風4的項目下,平均張可以得到29,表現還不差,但真的要拿來打3D Game是絕對不夠力的,D3僅得到13張,離及格標準30張還有段距離。不過畢竟是低階等級,以價格來看已經是很合理了,至於溫度及功耗的表現也都還不錯,待機15W左右,CPU+GPU燒機最高也僅有37W,而溫度最高也大概在34度左右而已。AM1...
