You'd probably be better off just spending an extra £30 and get a pre flashed board. Not voting either way..
This is very niche, but could be useful...
Ideal for an HTPC or a basic office type machine, with upgrade-ability to the full Ryzen range later.

Who upgrades these days? Everything is so cheap and new gen are only a 12 months or less away from the current retail releases!

I used my daughters PC last night night to do a restore, compared to my quad laptop her dual core e3000 felt pretty speedy. Graphics matter
Great CPU for those on a budget with an amazing upgrade path. How can you knock an AM4 chip with Vega 3 graphics for under £30! And it's a decent Zen chip not that useless Piledriver architecture. Only dual core but will be nippy enough. If you were building bit by bit and on a budget, this would be an excellent starter CPU - switch up to full Ryzen and/or discrete graphics as and when.

Its not a single use cpu, you could sell it on and get most of your money back.

True, if you can be bothered to do it it's probably worth it
So I bought it, didn't pay attention and did t notice the £11 I got charged for postage to the Highlands and Islands... To Aberdeen.
This would be great for a Tv box or NAS HTPC= displayboard project . The grafix would make it a reasonable emu and Its also a low energy chip 35w max . Shame you cant get it with a mitx/Stx motherboard at a cheap price
Chips at this price , and very recent tech .. knocks anything Intel are toouting at this end of the market.
I have one of these in my main machine right now (I tend to swap CPU a lot, and this just happens to be what's in right now) gets a passmark of around 5000 when running at stock, but overclocks happily to 3.9GHz to achieve around 6000. It plays most games quite adequately, does bottleneck an rx580. Totally worth the money if you're happy to take the price hit on the motherboard and RAM.

The Pentium (and even Celeron) Coffee Lake chips are good performance but nothing touches the Vega 3 graphics in the Athlon at this price point. Bargain for a cheap build.
Price showing as £42.66 now...
