So I want to upgrade my HTPC to a 45 Watt APU to be able to play some more games from the couch (low-end steamboxing ).
Since the A8-7600 is delayed I thought I could maybe go for the availabel A10-6700T.
What are your thoughts?
Note that I will not install catalyst (doesn´t work well with xbmc). So the 6700T would run r600 and the 7600 radeonSI (current stable mesa+kernel).
Possible Upgrade Specs:
Richland 32 nm A8-7600 3,1 (3,3) GHz 2 × 2 MB 384 GCNcores 654 (720) MHz 45 W TurboCore3 FM2+ DDR3-2133 MHz
Kaveri 28 nm A10-6700T 2,5 (3,5) GHz 2 × 2 MB 384 VLIW4cores 720 (N/A) MHz 45 W TurboCore3 FM2 DDR3-1866 MHz
- very flat / small case so a dGPU or >45 W is out of the question
- 120 W power supply
- very silent and it should stay this way
- AMD E-350 (Zacate)
- 2x2 GB 1333 RAM
- 128 GB SSD + 3TB
- openSUSE tumbleweed
