AMD Mar1 Desktop Processor Update - PRESS DECK-9

Today, AMD announced the AMD A10-7890K APU and the AMD Athlon X4 880K APU which are essentially higher clocked versions of the AMD A10-7870K APU and the AMD Athlon X4 860K CPU respectively.

The AMD A10-7890K APU includes the same amount of CPU cores, GPU cores, and GPU frequency as the AMD A10-7870K except it now comes with a slightly higher 4.1GHz stock/4.3GHz turbo frequency on the CPU. Similarly, the AMD Athlon A4 880K comes clocked at 4.0GHz stock and 4.2GHz turbo.

AMD is also bundling new coolers with the new APU/CPU announcements.  Both the AMD A10-7870K and AMD Athlon 880K will receive the new ‘Near-silent’ 125W thermal solution. The new A10-7890K however will receive AMD’s new Wraith cooler. Other AMD A10 series APUs and AMD Athlons will receive a refreshed 95W thermal solution which is a modified version of the high-end cooler with heat pipes we have seen in the past.

Expect to see these new CPUs at your favorite retailers and e-tailers later  this month for consumer availability.
