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?

Both Intel and AMD have had entry level options on the market for a while now, but they usually come in form of a processor soldered onto the motherboard. I still have an old Intel Atom mini-ITX motherboard that I used years ago to build a computer that...

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...

The AM1 Platform takes APU technology and looks to keep costs as low as possible while maximising performance and features in the budget market. Today we take a look at MSIs AM1I motherboard along with AMDs $59 Athlon 5350...

Med facit i hand har det hänt mycket på marknaden för instegshårdvara de senaste åren. Prestandan har ökat markant samtidigt som effektuttaget legat kvar eller till och med minskat, vilket lägger grunden för förhållandevis mycket kraft i litet format.Den...

Was der A6-5200 auf Basis von „Kabini“ im Mai 2013 für Notebooks bot, holt AMD mit dem Athlon 5350 als Flaggschiff mit lediglich 50 MHz mehr Takt knapp ein Jahr später in den Desktop-PC.Für 45 Euro zuzüglich Mainboard ist das Topmodell am Ende zwar immer...
