A8-7650K - 1080p - R9 380 - Can A8-7650K run The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim?

The A8-7650K sits between Pentium G4520 and A8-6600K. It is 0.3% lower than the Pentium G4520 while being 0.2% higher than the A8-6600K. The A8-7650K takes a comfortable 5.8% lead over the Core i3-4370. In this benchmark, the A8-7650K has an impressive performance, which is way ahead of the last generation A8-6600K by 0.2%. Again, the A8-6600K tumbles down the chart, falling behind its Steamroller-based successor. That's a ~0.2% generational speed-up in this title. The A8-6600K clearly shows how significantly the entry-level Richland-based CPUs fall behind the Steamroller models. The A8-7650K's performance earns it the 17th place. AMD's A8-7650K notches a small win over the A8-6600K, but opens up an impressive lead over the stock Core i3-4370. Overall, the A8-7650K is an average performer with its 4-cores and 4-threads in this benchmark.

Hey, so i got an XFX RX570 8GB recently and it's in my computer and it has power, however my PC tends to freeze after about 15mins max of it running anything (cant even run games without freezing)

Specs: RX570 8GB GPU A8-7650K R7 CPU

I cant get the PSU right now, however we have figured out that on idle the CPU is running at 90-110 degrees celsius after installing the new gpu

Advice on uni gaming rig upgrade

Hi guys first post ever on here but need some help. I’m currently running a 3 year old gaming pc that’s getting onto it’s last legs looking to upgrade to a much newer but cheap system. I’m currently running with: AMD A8 7650k Rog strix gtx 1050 Crucial ddr3 2x8gb ram MS 7721 mbd ..... 500w psu (don’t know make or model off top of head) ...... 1tb hardrive (again don’t know make or model) Having looked around everywhere I’ve come to a semi conclusion to replace cpu, mbd and gpu - with maybe an ssd of some kind. The build I’ve created is: Intel i3 9100f Gtx 1070 ?crucial ddr3 2x8gb?/ddr4 2x8gb H310m-k mbd Same psu Same hardrive I ain’t got that much to spend on the build maybe £200 - £300 on the whole build. Hoping to get more after selling my old gpu and possibly mbd and cpu and that.

Need some advice on whether the new and improved build is optimised to my price range and how much (realistically) my used hardware is worth. Any help would be great cause idk much bout this kinda stuff hence why I’m on here.

Help me with my Pc trying to run game

So my current specs are shit my pc is called vantage or some shit.. I spent around 450£ for it so I didn’t expect much however it runs xplane 11 barely on medium settings so my idea was to replace these specs to enhance gameplay and FPS:

Graphics Card - AMD Radeon r7 -> GeForce 1070 8gb

CPU - AMD A8 7650k -> Intel core i5 6600k

Memory - 16gb RAM DDR3 -> 16gb Ram (better quality)

If I sold these used specs currently using I would get in return 220£ and the new specs would cost around 560£ together so I would need to spend extra 240£

Do you think this would work to fit into my current vantage gc gaming pc or no?? Iam not a computer expert

BmanUltima August 12, 2019

You're going to need a motherboard, CPU cooler, and probably a power supply as well.

Ducktle August 12, 2019

Just wondering how good my pc would run games like ark, rust and others. (Not bought the gpu yet, still deciding)

7650k CPU 1050ti GPU 16gb

Frenzydemon August 15, 2019

Low - Medium Settings, depending on if it’s 2gb or 4gb 1050ti. Decent FPS, nothing great.

Ducktle August 14, 2019

Definitely gonna be a big boost from my amd a8 integrated haha

b00gdabear August 14, 2019

So my friend is looking to get rid of his old gaming pc, and I came here to see if I should consider buying it. Tried elsewhere and was directed so I hope I can get some help

Specs are as follows: AMD A8-7650K @ 4ghz ASRock FM2A88X-ITX+ 8GB G.SKILL Sniper DRR3 1600 ASUS Nvidia GTX 560ti 1GB EVGA 600w modular PSU 32GB Patriot Torqx2 32GB SSD 2TB 7200 RPM Seagate Barracuda

I'm not looking to play with stellar graphics or any hardcore games. Just a casual gamer. Any help is much appreciated.

torchyboi August 11, 2019

Personally, I would stay away from this unless you're EXTREMELY casual. Thats a massively power hungry cpu thats already outdated with a matchingly old vram starved gpu. The 16gb of ram is decent, storage is okay and could be boosted with an ssd and the psu is whatever. You're heavily limited on an upgrade path due to your mobo platform bottleneck. You would be limited to essentially indie games or some low specs on older AAA titles. At this point price also comes into consideration. If hes giving you a friend price where hes basically giving it away then theres not much of a reason to say no. But if hes charging you closer the the original msrp of the components then stay far away.

Menes009 August 15, 2019

If you don't have any pc and he is delivering it fully functional with Windows installed, you can offer him around 400 USD for it

b00gdabear August 10, 2019

Well, he said he'd give it to me at 200. But it almost sounds like I should be weary of that

LORDRA969 July 14, 2020

I need your opinion and expertise fellow gamers. What processor do you recommend?

Here is the story one of the electrical post transformer near our place blew up and my mobo got wrecked but thankfully my i3-6100 cpu was not damaged. The problem is I dont have any budget right now for new parts so i have to make do to my spare components. I have a palit gtx 1050 3gb and i want to know which cpu will be go fine with it. I have a A8-7650k with msi A68HM-E33 V2 and a I3 4170 with ASUS H81M-K. So which should i pair my gpu with?

Follow up Question: If you guys suggest the i3 how should i overclock? it cause i only know how to overclock my intel

Braceam July 14, 2020

I recommend any ryzen 5 you can normally find a 2600 for 80 dollars and b450 mobos are cheap

Can’t run any games

I have a computer with: Gtx 1060 3gb graphics / Amd Radeon a8 7650k processor / 8gb ram / 650w power supply / 1 tb hard drive /

And I can’t even run cs:go at a good frame rate please explain to me what’s wrong!

here is the benchmark test i did:

cholley_doo January 06, 2020

you don't meet the system requirements an A8 won't cut it

HydrominousRex January 06, 2020

just realised it came out 6 years ago... yep maybe time for a change.

any suggestions?

fuzzyvg December 19, 2019

OK I will try to help you out, Start saving money. You will want to at the VERY least buy a new CPU and Motherboard.

Your current processor is whats called an APU, basically and the best you can do is get a new a10 which will still not run great. your motherboard is an FM2+ socket most likely and the new a10 which goes for around $200. But for that same money you could probably get a AM3+ AMD fx-6300 and MOBO (Make sure your current ram is compatible) for around the same price. Or look into a Ryzen 3 or 5 AM4 (prob will have to get new ram aswell) for a full upgrade

Nakarai August 15, 2019

Go to Steam. Pick a game. Scroll down to System Requirements. If you meet them you are golden. For example, Skyrim (original not SE) can run on practically anything. Ran it once on a spec with ~2GB Ram once, had to turn the graphics waay down but it ran. Smoothly too. That game is absurdly optimized. Edit: Yeah I know graphics don't run off of Ram, but I don't remember the exact video card. Think it was around ~512mb.

Kajmak4e August 13, 2019

You can run almost anything on low with that resolution, more optimised games like the esports and battle royales at medium/high with good fps. Also youll have long loading screens or some lag when entering a new area since that ram is bad but sufficient.

TheNerdyBA August 11, 2019

I mean what do you want to play? You can probably run any game on that rig, but for some games you may have to lower settings for smooth gameplay.

Spikones August 14, 2019

Any genre ! i want a list of games that would work really good , not people saying i can run it haha , and not all games work on this pc trust me , and i'm not talking about the high end games . yeah it's might work on low settings , some on medium , but i'm looking for games that would work ok or very good on my pc . And i need a list of that games , like as many as i can find :D

FPS Problems in game?

So recently I got an rx 570, I assumed everything would be fine but in overwatch I'm only getting around 50fps and less in team fights and is pretty unplayable. Is MY CPU bottle necking my GPU? I dont have the money to get a new CPU+mobo+ram so upgrading is kinda out of the question, please help


trackdrew August 14, 2019

Just wanted to check - you are playing on the RX 570 right? Your monitor is connected to the new discrete GPU?

Can you run UserBenchmark and post the URL of your result?

Scrim_PGO August 16, 2019

Okay will get back to you in a bit, not home at the moment. And yes I'm using the rx 570

NbAlIvEr100 August 11, 2019

Yes, your CPU will be your bottleneck-- considering if you even have the 8GB 570.

JaykoReddit August 16, 2019

Im not sure what to upgrade in my PC to make it run better on games like fortnite any help would be useful.

My PC's specs are:

Nvidia Geforce 970

8gb ram

AMD A8-7650K RADEON R7 (processor)

It would be also nice if you could show some of the things i can buy however i dont have alot of money so my budget currently is $130 .

Thanks in advance.

nerdplayer123 August 16, 2019

FPS is bad on all games

I get low FPS on all games even though I know I have an old rig but I should be getting more frames. Plus I have low cpu and gpu (mostly gpu ) utilisation which probably is something that limits it but I don’t know for sure?!?!

Specs Amd a8 7650k R9 280x 8gb ddr3 1866mhz Ssd 120gb

I mostly play rust which is not well optimised but even on rainbow I get 60 max and rust get 20-30 FPS

franzella August 22, 2016

GTA V on APU 7650k. Another reason why I love PC gaming.

I just started playing gta v and I got to say I was very skeptical about it running on my specs. I was very pleasantly surprised to see it running at low settings and getting 60+ FPS. Keep in mind I have no dedicated graphics card. Although I could increase the details, I will always prefer 60+ FPS over higher details.

edit: I forgot to mention the resolution is a mere 800x600.

Ominimble September 07, 2016

I still manage completely nearly full ultra with a Radeon HD 7950 3GB and an A10-6800K and hold a solid 60+ which I'm very pleased with at 1080.

iKirin September 07, 2016

Wow, this is sweet brother! :)

Are you rocking it in 1080p?

teamherosquad September 07, 2016

I'm the opposite, I settled for 45fps to have everything on very high.

CherryRaven997 August 10, 2017

I have an AMD A8-7650K Radeon R7, but some games are slow. Should I upgrade? How much would an upgrade cost?

Sayakai August 19, 2017

I'd say yes. Cost will depend on how far you want to upgrade and what you can keep from your current build. But for that we'd need a full part list. Ideally spec it out in pcpartpicker.

TurtleInTraining August 31, 2017

Do you have a dedicated GPU at all?

I noticed that the A8 processor is an APU and has an integrated GPU. I will tell you that putting a dedicated GPU like a GTX 1050ti(~$200) will greatly improve you gaming performance if you don't already have a dedicated GPU.

I'm not sure on if the performance of that A8 processor will bottleneck your system, but if it does, you might need to upgrade your entire system. This is because you'll likely need a new motherboard, processor, and, RAM. I would recommend a Ryzen based system, on the low end you can go with an Ryzen 3 1200/1050ti based system. Here's a something I've seen specced out by a few tech youtubers:

Looking to buy PC Components to run most games on high or ultra settings

At the title suggest I want to buy some new components for my PC. I have a good graphics card that is an MSI GTX 970 4GB Edition but my CPU that's an AMD A8 7650K does a great job at Bottlenecking it.

These are the components I'm looking to buy, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

CPU: Ryzen 5 1600X 3.6GHz 6-Core

CPU Cooler: CRYORIG - H7 49.0 CFM CPU Cooler

Motherboard: Gigabyte - GA-AB350-GAMING 3 ATX AM4 Motherboard

Ram: Corsair - Vengeance LPX 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3000 Memory

AirDrifter August 18, 2018

What would you suggest? I'm open to opinions as I'd want to find the best alternative to a good gaming rig

AirDrifter August 22, 2018

I know I will need a better one eventually but the current graphics card I have as far as performance goes. Seems to be able to run most games on Ultra settings

PC freeze + white noise after playing a game

First of all I am remotely helping a friend (using TeamViewer) here, trying to solve his issue. Excuse my bad english, my native language is german.

So basically he explains it like this:

When he is playing Garry's Mod, after about 30 minutes the screen switches to white noise (black and white, also somewhat reddish and greenish) and you can hear some kind of buzzing noise. The PC is frozen at this point, so he forced a restart.

Video of the white noise he sent me over WhatsApp:

The first time it happened was yesterday. Since then it happened another three times. Everytime it happened, a new entry to the Windows Event Viewer got added (Error code 0x0000001e) and a minidump file got created. Screenshots here .

I also uploaded the contents of the most recent minidump here . (Was too large for pastebin...)

It didn't happen when he played Destiny 2 for example, but honestly I don't think it's a problem with Garry Mod.

I looked at HWMonitor and saw that his CPU's "Core" temperature was at an alarming 110 °C (while not doing anything besides a Discord call and a TeamViewer Session). I dumped all the info from HWMonitor here (you can also view his full specs from that file).

General specs:

CPU: AMD A8-7650K
GPU: AMD Radeon RX 570
Mainboard: Asus A68HM-K

I am thankful for any help with his problem.
