The AMD A6-6400K Black Edition in some ways is all the CPU you will ever need. With 2 cores and a stock speed of 3.90GHz, which automatically turbo's upto 4.10GHz when required, this CPU can handle anything you throw at it. Even more impressive is the overclocking ability of these processors with some reaching near and over 5GHz on air cooling.
The main and best feature of the A6-6400k is the onboard IGP, the HD 8470D which is equivalent in gaming performance to a HD 6650 and can actually play any game including the latest titles with low/moderate quality settings. In our own testing Borderlands 2 at 1680x1050 with all details on low/medium was more than playable, with smooth frame rates. However it is very important with the FM2 platform to use high speed memory as the onboard IGP gets a serious performance boost with faster memory upto 2400MHz.
For those who require more graphics performance, adding a HD 6670 / HD 7750 to the mix will enable Hybrid Crossfire giving upto approx 80% additional performance in modern gaming titles, making this new platform viable for entry level gaming machines that can play the latest gaming titles.
