AMD Launches A10-6790K Richland APU

Today, AMD has announced a new APU, its A10-6790K. It makes some very small concessions as compared to the flagship A10-6800K, though it does have an even lower price, giving buyers even more value for their money.

The A10-6790K features a base clock speed of 4.1 GHz, and a Turbo Core speed of 4.3 GHz. Both of these figures are just 100 MHz less than the A10-6800K, so just a marginal difference. Due to the unlocked multiplier, the APU can easily be overclocked as well. Regarding graphics, the APU features the same Radeon 8670D graphics core, which carries 384 stream processors and runs at the same 844 MHz.

The memory frequency that the A10-6790K can support has been set at 1866 MHz.

AMD expects the A10-6790K Richland APU to carry a street price of about $130, which is $10 less than its bigger brother.

    Why for only $10? Make some really epic chips AMD, so that toms can write an amazing report on how you beat Intel. Like how the 290x beat the 780 for a hundred dollars less

    these entry level gpus probably can already hit DDR3 6670 levels. tis why next generation kaveri is going to be interesting alone. With increased IPC performance, and changing the IGPU from the older VLIW4(HD 6900 series) to the newer and more efficient GCN architecture. Tis why with the release of the HD 7730 DDR3 and GDDR5, it was scrutinized because its the likely candidate to be put into the Kaveri (since the 7730 has 384 GCN cores) which is the same # of cores as this APU has but with a different architecture.
