The A10 lineup consists of quad-core APUs that come with Radeon HD 7660D graphics. The A10-5800K has four "Piledriver" architecture cores, clock speeds of 3.80 GHz (4.20 GHz Turbo Core), 4 MB L2 cache, DDR3 1866 support and 100W TDP.  Next in line is the non-Black Edition A10-5700, which has a base clock clocked at 3.40 GHz (4.00 GHz Turbo Core) with a 65W TDP. The HD 7660D has 384 Graphics CoreNext stream processors.

The A8 lineup consist of quad-core APUs that come with a Radeon HD 7560D graphics. The A8-5600K has clock speeds of 3.60 GHz (3.90 Turbo Core), 4 MB L2 cache, DDR3 1866 support and 100W TDP. The A8-5500 has a base clock clocked at 3.240 GHz (3.70 GHz Turbo Core) with a 65W TDP. The HD 7560D has 256 Graphics CoreNext stream processors.

The A6/A4 lineups consist of dual-core APUs that come with a Radeon HD 7540D/HD 7480D graphics. The A6-5400K will have an unlocked multiplier (clock speeds not currently listed), 1 MB L2 cache, DDR3 1866 support, 65W TDP and HD 7540D graphics. The HD 7540D has 192 Graphics CoreNext stream processors. The lowest priced A4-5300 will support 1 MB L2 cache, DDR3 1866 support, 65W TDP and HD 7480D graphics (clock speeds not currently listed). The HD 7480D has 128 Graphics CoreNext stream processors. The HD 7480D will lack dual-graphics support, which would allow users to pair an APU graphics processor with a compatible discrete GPU to make the two work together.

    Pretty impressive. Def see a perfomance boost over Llano.

    If the A10 line-up really has the 7660D, and this performs on par with HD6750/HD5750, this would be an awesome-enough-for-casual gaming platform PC... Should wait for the bench soon...
