AMD Athlon 5350 

Released December, 2013
  • 2.05 GHz
  • Quad core
8 Out of 10

It's middle-of-the-road in terms of features and performance, but its low price is the main lure.

The Desktop Kabini Review Part 1: AMD Athlon 5350 (AM1) Tested

by Ian Cutress |
Although the rest of AMD's desktop sockets still rely on a latch + lever retention system, Socket-FS1b moves to a push-pin design similar to what Intel uses on its motherboards (albeit with fewer mounting holes, and much simpler mounting/removing due to lower retention force requirements).
Now either the motherboard manufacturer is getting a good deal on the CPU below tray price (most likely), or Intel is subsiding the cost, or the tray price is incorrect.
Add into that equation the inefficiency of a 500 watt power supply pushing 23 watts… we can see that the potential for a system with a much smaller and efficient power supply could potentially get down to the 12 watt range.
AM1 will likely not overclock worth beans, but the combination of efficiency and a deep feature set will make this product appealing to a significant cross section of consumers.

AMD Athlon 5350 And AM1 Platform Review: Kabini In A Socket

Indeed, most of the Bay Trail-equipped boards we've seen so far appear best suited to industrial applications.

It is estimated that the entry level Kabini APU and motherboard combo will cost just around $60 US.
The chips both have a TDP of 25W which is quite good for desktop consumers aiming to build media boxes and HTPCs with these processors.

Also the GPU model is incorrect...
The GPU's clock speed is 600 MHz, not 128 MHz. 128 is the amount of shaders.
