AMD is reportedly planning to drop the prices of numerous Trinity APUs prior to the release of its upcoming "Richland" family of processors.
According to DigiTimes, AMD is reportedly planning to significantly reduce the price of a number of its Trinity APUs to "make room" for its "Richland" family of processors that are currently expected to arrive in June.
These price reductions are expected to range from 8 percent to 15 percent and include the A8-5600K, FX-6300 and FX-4300. Hardware.info further speculated that the price drop may have also been influenced by a desire to better compete with Intel's upcoming "Haswell" range of processors.
Although AMD has not yet provided any formal comment on this news or revealed the formal specifications of its next-generation of processors, the leaked "2013 Client Roadmap" displayed to the right indicates that one of the most important improvements will be an upgrade of the integrated graphics to the Radeon HD 8670D.
