Report: AMD to Release Business Class 'Richland' APUs

It was already known that this June would see the release of four SKUs from AMD’s new family of “Richland” APUs: the A10-5750M, A8-5550M, A6-5350M, and A4-5150M. According to a report from CPU World, motherboard manufacturer BioStar has revealed that AMD will also be releasing “four business class SKUs based on the Richland core.”


According to the information from the list, the A10-6800B comes with 4.1 GHz clock speed and a 100 Watt TDP. Based on its part number, it seems that the chip will have four CPU cores and a 2 MB L2 cache per module. The AMD A4-6300B and A6-6400B microprocessors are rated for a 65 W TDP and feature clock rates of 3.7 GHz and 3.9 GHz, respectively. The APU’s part numbers suggest that both chips will feature two CPU cores and a 1 MB L2 cache.

Since the aforementioned specifications match the A10-6800K, A4-6300, and A6-6400K, CPU World has speculated that “all remaining features are also identical” and added the further prediction that the “B class” APUs will be shipped only in OEM desktop PCs and won't be offered as boxed products.

    I'd really like to see these as a retail or brown-box chip with the integrated FirePro graphics. Whatever happened to those ?

    curious if these apus will include multi monitor support. I know alot of buisnesses and gov agencies have moved to dual screen interfaces and with the tdp here provided the mobo has a display port you could run some smaller low power units sfficient for most buisness's end user needs

    Excellent, I can see this taking off. Most business machines don't require tons of horsepower and for those doing the DIY route instead of going with big box Dell, Gateway, Acer junk machines then this would be a better cost effective alternative.

    The Trinity line does support multi-monitor setups.
    From a business perspective, my old Athlon M laptop was more than sufficient for browsing, Excel, Word and managing a small database.

    This article lacks substance, when speaking about APU's, it is more interesting to know information regarding the GPU specs not the CPU specs.
