AMD is preparing two new Llano processors for a release in the near future.
Say hello to the unlocked A8-3870K and A6-3670K.
CPU World reports that the new APUs are now available for pre-order and are positioned above the existing 3850 and 3650 models, respectively. Both APUs are 100 watt parts and clock in at 3.0 GHz and 2.7 GHz, compared to 2.9 GHz and 2.6 GHz for the 3850 and 3650. CPU World shows a pricelist in which the new 3870K is priced at $143.77, which is the same as the cost for the 3850. The 3670K is priced at $121.50, the same as the 3650.
It is reasonable to expect the prices for the 3650 and 3850 to drop slightly once the new APUs are released.
