AMD's Upcoming Richland APUs Spotted, Photographed
Images have been taken of three of AMD's upcoming Richland APUs, and unsurprisingly, they look like ordinary CPUs.
Three of AMD's upcoming Richland desktop APUs have been pictured, among which are the A10-6800K, A10-6700, and A4-4400. Because they are the first to be photographed, it is likely that these three will be the first to hit the shelves.
The A10-6800K is a quad-core, Piledriver-based APU with a core clock speed of 4.1 GHz and a Turbo core speed of 4.4 GHz. The on-die Radeon HD8670D handles graphics with a clock speed of 844 MHz. The CPU cores feature an unlocked base clock multiplier.
The next chip, the A10-6700, is mostly identical to the A10-6800K, except that it features a core clock speed of 3.7 GHz, a Turbo core speed of 4.3 GHz, and an upwards locked multiplier to prevent overclocking, but not downclocking. It features the same graphics part as the A10-6800K.
The last chip that was pictured is the A4-4400. This chip is an entry level dual-core part with a core clock frequency of 3.7 GHz and a Turbo core speed of 3.9 GHz. The graphics on-die are taken care of by a Radeon HD 8370D part.
