AMD has launched its new A10-6790K APU, which is based on the Richland configuration.
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.
