Hmmmm.

It's hard to be sure as the only comparisons I can find include the A10's integrated GPU + the R5 but it looks like that "Dedicated" card is actually worse than the inbuilt GPU on the APU.

Seems pretty crappy for £500 tbh

It does have a minor bump in clockspeed but it's essentially a rebranded R7 240, although it is the DDR3 variant so it will be slower than most of the tested GDDR5 versions.

Dual Graphics does seem to be fairly acceptable these days, so it should work with the integrated graphics crossfire-style to produce more performance. Unlike on the Intel variants of this it will benefit you.

An RX 460 is going to offer twice the performance and can be added to a prebuilt system for £500 total budget so this isn't a great deal at this price.

Haha, this would barely run any modern games, let alone be able to do VR

If you class "Minesweeper" as "Gaming and VR" yes, other than that I've got a high feeling this won't even touch VR. You'd be looking at low-end gaming with no VR.

Low-end spec for a stupidly high price.

Providing you can get a motherboard cheap, I built an A10 7870k with a 7850 for £200. Sure I had the 7850 lying around but as a GPU it's vastly superior to this dGPU. Even if I were to buy a dGPU it would be superior to this at a cheaper price.

The red case is nice but sadly this isn't in anyway a "bargain".
