Results: Adobe Creative Suite
Clock for clock, we again see the new machine’s unlocked Pentium holding its own in CPU-intensive parallelized tasks like Adobe Premiere Pro and our threaded Photoshop test.
Granted, last quarter’s rig appears surprisingly slow in the OpenCL-enabled workload, especially considering both machines basically rely on Pitcairn/Curacao-based Radeons and the Catalyst 14.4 driver package.
The new machine regains a clear advantage in the more lightly-threaded After Effects and Acrobat workloads.
When toms reviewed this CPU it was shown to have poor latency
For a 500$ build i would probably do a 6300+265 build. 600$ i would probably jump the build up to a I5+265 or 8320+270X.

What you guys think? Usage? Racing Games at homes, audio/video encoding etc. I don't need K CPUs because I'm not in a hurry in this case.
Power source: 100% green aka Solar energy.
i use i3-4130 btw.
