It is definitely a better CPU than the A10-7300, offering a bit more graphical performance as well. It's capable of some gaming, but nothing serious like Fallout 4. I just tried playing FO4 and it wasn't at all able to at any meaningful frame rate. Settings were 1280x720 at roughly at Low-Medium quality, God Rays OFF, SSAO OFF, TAA OFF, and it was only managing about 15FPS.
