Yeah, no, it's basically a Phenom II X4, and will definitely hold back any modern GPU in a lot of games. I wouldn't pair it with more than a 750Ti/265. Even a 660/280 would be overkill for that poor thing, unless you're running 4k.


Do you understand that an Athlon x4 750k is an A10 6800k without the integrated graphics?
But hey, you don't have to take my word for it.

Do you understand that AMD hasn't been able to make significant gains on IPC in over half a decade? It's basically a phenom II x4 of comparable clockspeeds.

Do you understand that it's a $80 CPU that will get the job done for gaming?

Do you understand that you're wrong? The 750k will struggle badly in things like open world games and MMOs. It'll drag minimum framerates through the floor even if you pair it with a 780 Ti, because it simply isn't capable of feeding such a card in any CPU-intensive title. Maybe if your standards are so low that you can accept stuttering or locking everything at 30fps it'll "get the job done for gaming", but that's it.

A 750K isn't up to snuff in terms of CPU power these days (for high/max settings on all games, it's fine overall); it's going to hold back a 280, no matter what sort of link you try to post.

A 750k would only struggle on CPU bound games, lol@ all these bottleneck gurus.

A bunch of GPU-limited games running on a low-end GPU, and yet there's still a performance difference.
BTW, A10 6800k is basically a Phenom II with an IGP.
Later in the video even demonstrates that the 750k doesn't even make a good showing for average framerates, much less the all important lows that AMD is known to be bad for. The i5 is over twice as fast, apparently. Wow.

The vid showed a 750k working well with a 7870. As for the doubling part, that was a gtx 780. Yeah, a 750k will bottleneck a GTX 780. It's an $80 cpu, what were you expecting?

You can always return the one you ordered and build something like this:

Throw in a case of your choosing and possibly additional storage, and save yourself $100-200 for better gaming, loading/startup, and solid everyday performance.

From the other responses I'm guessing it's a joke topic though.
