Not bad at all. Only drawback is I assumed the expandability will be limited - hard to change or upgrade components as the size, motherboard capacity and warranty limited.

Will be waiting for the geeks to add their comments before committing to buying this as my desktop is on the blink and very old. The geeks are wise;)

Can't find any definitive benchmarks for the APU, only a questionable Korean one.

Indications seem to be that CPU performance is comparable to an Intel i3 (but it does much better on heavily multithreaded applications). It's a high end APU but that still translated to a fairly weak CPU.

In terms of graphics, it looks like it does do a moderate level of gaming. 30+fps at 720p with medium to high settings. Performance drops heavily when you increase resolution as APUs use the system ram which is much slower than dedicated ram (and this system likely has slow ram).

Thankyou abigsmurf

Heated and reserved one for tomorrow. Gonna add 8gd ddr4 ram to it and hook it up to my 40 inch TV

The reason people can not find much info about this APU is that so far its only been released to the big system builders like HP,Dell,Lenovo and so on. People should be able to buy it around the end of the year for home builds at which point lots more information about how well it runs will come out. As for the computer as a whole the hard drive is a little slow and the GPU can not be linked to a second card but it is DX12. Right now no other offers I have found come even close to these specs for this price.

It will run just about everything you could want from internet, apps and games. Its not a high spec gaming system but will run new games at ok frame rates. So yes at this price I would say its a good deal if you need a monitor and printer then also check the Bundle offer

Not a great choice. Old technology at an inflated RRP, it's not really a deal. AMD is releasing a new Zen CPU in 2017 and it will be dumping these old cpus in the coming January sales as they are based on old tech that doesn't come close to even a basic Intel i3.

SLOW 5200rpm hard drive
OLD tech CPU with poor benchmark scores

You would be better off with a Intel i3 based machine for the same money for business or home use. Or an i5 for a little more for gaming with a dedicated graphics card.

processor is a bit pants but its ok if you will not be doing any heavy processing on it.

Very sub-standard. Probably not worth the buck. Can't seem to find any information about the APU so I would have no idea about the benchmark but I would assume it would probably be okay for casual gamers. CPU is a 2mb cache on 3.5ghz quad core so it's definitely not the worst but the architecture on this model would be so old. It's probably ideal for somebody wanting an every 'home' computer and not run games. If you want a budget entry gaming PC, probably better to splash out an additional 200 pounds.

comparison in speed etc to a i5 machine - click link


please find me a i5 for 299. its unfair to compare. you should be comparing new i3 not i5, then show us benchmarks

Ok had chance to run a quick passmark cpu test and it scored 5188 did not have time to run other tests as its a gift for my daughter so had to pack it away before I picked her up.

from what ive looked at on 3d mark firestrike this cpu is better than the i3 6300

"the SYSmark known for his “love” to the CPU from Intel, it is not surprising that neither the A10, or Athlon could not even come close to a modest Pentium G4400. The more reliable benchmark Cinebench R15 model A10-9700 scored 305 points (in single-threaded mode – 92 points), while A10-7800 – 302 points. Both processors are ahead of Pentium G4400, but behind the Core i3-6300. Finally, 3DMark Fire Strike test demonstrated that AMD is not without reason decided to release a new series of 28-nanometer APU: 1714 points roughly correspond to the level of productivity between the Radeon R7 240, and GDDR5 Radeon R7 250, which is a good result. A10-7800 processor behind on 433 points (33.8%), and the Core i3-6300 – 719 points, or 72.3%

Guys a lot of the comparisons you are making are unfair and irrelevant!

Is this a good value deal?; Yes! Is this a good standard pc; not particularly, but its ok! Are you going to get much better for only £300? (£400 with a printer and monitor thrown in!); Probably not. HOT

comparing this to an i5 is frankly borderline insanity

Would it be better to compare it to an i7?
http://cpuboss.com/cpus/Intel-Core-i7-6700-vs-AMD-A10-7th-Gen-A10-9700

This CPU is BRAND NEW 7th Gen Bristol Ridge AMD APU. It can NOT be compared to the old A10-7800 running DDR3 RAM. THIS PC comes with DDR4 MEMORY 2400mhz, overclockable to DDR4-2933 MHz

This CPU is bundled with AMDs new super quiet Wraith copper CPU cooler and the chip runs at 65TDP. A nice jump down from 95.

This CPU is on a brand new AM4 board. The SAME BOARD THAT AMDs ZEN processor will use when released in 2017. it also comes with USB3.1 the new AC WIFI waaaay better than the old n standard with a massive 4x speed increase and a better connection.

Its a £300 machine you COULD game on. Plop in a SSD, enjoy the 2TB hard drive AND its fully future proof for the next generation of AMD Zen 14nm processors. It should last 5 to 10 years. Just like my old 3.4 Ghz AMD Phenom ii 965 has lasted me, before it was worth buying a new system.

This thing is a monster. And I just reserved one.

Could anyone advise whether this would have room for additional internal harddrives? I ahve 2 I'd want to bring over from an old PC.

How big are they? U cld js port them on to the 2TB

I have just reserved one of these to pay in store later. My son wants to play Steam games including League of Legends. I don't understand any of it!. Will this PC support games on from Steam. He says he doesn't want high-end games because he will still use his xbox for those.

Anyone any idea how long it will be at this price? I'm still on the fence about it and need some time to think about it. Would like to know how long I have but can't see any end date for this price. Anyone?

Yes this will run League of Legends and many other games.

Most places seem to have the deals running until monday I am not sure if its the same for Currys the only other issue you may have is if they sell out.

the combined storage is over 2TB, so I'd be wanting to have additional room for more internal drives in case.

Frustratingly hard finding reviews but here's part of a review from heise.de, translated from German.

"Our past tests of Bristol Ridge and Carrizo chips showed that they only made small improvements compared to their predecessors. The A10-9700 also performs in CPU benchmarks virtually the same as the Carrizo Athlon X4 845 with the same clock frequency, or the two-year-old A10-7800 with Kaveri technology, which minimally clocks higher. Much better is the GPU performance, here AMD solves the promise: The A10-9700 scores 1714 points in the 3DMark Fire Strike, which is significantly more than the A10-7800 with a lot more shader cores, but also much lower GPU Clock frequency (1281 points). The racing game Dirt Rally calculates the A10-9700 in full HD resolution with "medium" details liquid at 35 frames per second.

This works, however, only if the A10-9700 can also use two DDR4 memory channels. With only one DIMM, such as HP the Pavilion 510-p150ng as standard, the 3DMark Fire Strike drops to 1090 points."

HP have different naming conventions for the desktop models for different markets and even for different high street retail chains, which makes it hard to price compare; you can find the 510-p150ng on the German version of Amazon for 399 euros (about £339) - amazon.de/HP-…h=1 - though it only comes with a 1TB hard drive; as far as I can tell the new version of the 510-p150ng that uses the new A10-9700 is otherwise the same 510-p199na model, above. I'm not sure where Curry's get the £300 saving from. I doubt this base unit will go up to £600 when it comes off special offer, but to give them their due - and again only if I am right about the 1TB German model being otherwise the same - you do appear to be saving a bit.

Yep, steam games will run perfectly based on internet speed, Bought myself one for top end World of warcraft raids and it works perfectly :-)

Can you add a dedicated graphics card into this?


Ordered.
Cheers!

Can you add a dedicated graphics card into this build?... this is the only thing that holds me back from buying this HP.

Is this Desktop worth it if you just want to watch videos, save documents, edit podcasts, streaming and downloading ?

Seriously considering this. Put simply it should be able to play the games i want to play at a price of £300. At this price point that's a good deal. Anything is better than graphics hd for gaming and that's all you'll get at this price point on a intel based system.

Another question I have is the processor faster than a Core i3 ?

Also, does it have a DVI port ?

ads888

Also, does it have a DVI port ?



Video connectors
1 VGA
1 HDMI-out 1.4b

Will this computer support dual monitors?

My current PC is about 5 years old and has integrated intel graphics, it is starting to get rather slow. Although recently doubling the RAM to 4gb helped a little, I recently got a couple of adobe programs (premiere, photoshop), and although it runs, it doesn't work very smoothly.

Would you recommend this for smooth video and photo editing etc, and maybe the occasional game?

I want a decent desktop pc under about £350 and this seems like the best deal?

Looking to buy my daughter a PC for Xmas. This PC is in my budget but will this play Sims 4 & be OK for homework/internet etc? Thanks

I bought this system on Thursday. It seems really fast and so far has handled everything nicely. I had open firefox with 20 tabs, edge, vlc, and cubase music software running several virtual instruments. This was using about 40% of the processor. I think this system will be fine for most applications. The onboard Radeon R7 graphics are so much better than my last PC, It renders web pages nicely, images look crisp and video is smooth. Having shopped around I would have struggled to get these specs for £300 so i think it's a decent deal. I did a benchmark test at geekbench and it got a single core score of 2341. Their benchmark score is 4000 for an Intel Core i7-6600U @ 2.60 GHz.

Does this computer come with all the cable you need for monitor etc thanks
