Report: AMD's Richland Flagship Will Be A10 6800K APU

According to Fudzilla, the high-end Richland APU will be called A10 6800K and replace the current 5800K.

The 3.8 GHz/4.2 GHz, quad-core 5800K sits on the top of AMD's APU series with four CPU cores, 384 Radeon (HD 7660D) cores, and a TDP of 100 watts. AMD will be able to squeeze more power efficiency out of the 28 nm Richland chips. On the high-end, it is unlikely that the company will be changing the power envelope, but rather increase the off-the-shelf clock speed, which should easily be touching 4 GHz/ 4.4 GHz. Richland will also include AMD's new HD 8000 Radeon graphics core.

The A10 6800K as well as other Richland APUs are expected to be announced in June of this year.

    refillableNo matter whether this APU's GPU is going to perform better than a 550 Ti or not, budget gamers will still get an intel with a GPU. Especially when say an 8770 performs like a 660/7870.


    from my own experience budget gamers don't care if that is intel or AMD or something else, they just care is money, as it has to be cheap with good performance.

    Nice APU!

    Graphic-Units become more and more potential. - Hopefully, the cpu will also become better.
