    Maybe they are holding those names for the full-functionality Pile Driver cores.

    I can't wait to see how the unlocked Trinity processors scale in performance relative to their clock speed. Hopefully they are released as stated and not later, we've had to wait long enough already.

    The processor in the image says "A10 5800 Series" on it, I doubt they would also have an A6 5800.

    A6-5800k ? There is no such thing. I believe it is A10-5800k. Must be false post.

    Can the 7660D be crossfired? I remember reading somewhere that crossfire only works with certain cards, but I'm not sure.

    Hope they're worth the wait. I'd really like an AMD chip that I can justify buying over an Intel.

    I believe it was all of the old gpus + some of the OEM HD 7xxx series that are not retail. I cannot recall which ones though(the HD series before 7750 which you cannot buy from a normal retailer)

    Well thats the most exciting tech picture I've seen in years. So radical.

    I'm pleased that they decided to settle on a more coherent naming sequence this time round. The A4 will be a 5300 part, and every even x number is an unlocked model, it appears.

    If that 7660 GPU is anything like the 6600 series in terms of performance, you've got one heck of a built in GPU. With the right price, these will be spectacular for budget builds.

    I'll enjoy watching you trying to plop the i5 in a $400-$600 build. You would need a cardboard case, a very cheap motherboard, 1-2 GB of RAM and no dedicated GPU to fit the i5 in.

    In short, you'll have a very unbalanced and terrible build if you're on a budget.

    EDIT: And if you want to OC the i5 while on the $400-$600 budget, go knock yourself out.
