AMD Athlon 5350 (Kabini AM1 Platform) FS1b APU Review (w/ Sapphire R7 240 Low Profile)

AMD's Kabini parts are low-cost, low-power APU products designed to meet the needs of entry-level users. As such, we will test the Athlon 5350 APU in a number of compute benchmarks and real-world tests to outline its CPU and GPU performance, as well as the system performance of the AM1 platform.
