AMD Vision A8-3850 APU & Asus F1A75-M Pro Motherboard Review

Review Score:
9 Flares 9 Flares ×

For our tests, we used a Coolit ECO A.L.C. to cool the AMD Vision A8-3850 APU and used an Antec TruePower 550W power supply for the system.  According to AMD, the Lynx platform can experience instability with some larger power supplies (750W+) due to the lower idle power so it is worth bearing this in mind when you’re building a Lynx system.

Special thanks to Intel for supplying some hardware at late notice.
