As we can appreciate its performance is really surprising at a frequency of 4.8 GHz,  ie overclocked. Clearly surpassing one of the TOP sales of 2016: i3-6100.

Before finishing we leave some of the characteristics on the most HZ resolutions supported as standard:

  • DVI: Resolution 1920 × 1200 at 60 Hz
  • DisplayPort 1.2a with 4096 x 2160 reoslution at 60 Hz (Supports FreeSync)
  • HDMI 2.0 with 4096 x 2160 resolution at 60 Hz

Its price in online stores oscillate / oscillate from 57 euros for the most basic model (A6-9500E) to 117 euros with model A12-9800E. Now we ask you! What do you think its performance? Do you think that they will sell like churros or AMD Ryzen 3 have left the bar so high that they will opt for the latter?
