AMD Sets New Pricing For A-Series APUs

On Tuesday, AMD announced new prices for its A-Series of APUs, including the A10-7850K, A10-7800, A10-7700K, A8-7600 and A6-7400K. The company has also thrown in a game code for Murdered: Soul Suspect, THIEF or Sniper Elite 3 for Windows PC with the purchase of one of five A10 APUs.  

For starters, here are the new prices for five A-Series APUs:

As for the game code, AMD revealed that this promotion will last until the end of October, and it will only apply to five A-Series APUS: the A10-7850K, A10-7800, A10-7700K, A10-6800K and A10-6790K. The key code will be placed inside the processor's box and allow the customer to choose one of the three games for Windows PC. Customers can also use the code to purchase Corel Aftershot Pro 2 for a mere $5, instead.

Finally, AMD provided pricing for the previous generation of APUs:

  • A10-6800K - $112
  • A8-6600K - $92
  • A4-6300 - $34
  • A4-5300 - $31
  • A4-4000 - $27

The company also suggests that AMD customers install the AMD Gaming Evolved software so that they can receive notifications for when new drivers are available. The app can also be used to tweak PC games for optimal performance and visuals, and used to earn points that can be redeemed for competition entries, hardware and games.

    I'd say that is a very good deal for that CPU, it's price now justifies it over a CPU + GPU combo.

    I suppose you could just get the top of the line desktop APU, game with it, and then throw in a discrete after a couple years of earning more dinero.

    The A10-7700K has a 4CPU + 6GPU configuration, the same for the A10-7600, and not a 4CPU+8GPU as shown on the table.

    "Suggested Etail Pricing (USD)" ...

    The original prices were never consistent with the performance of the processors, particularly for the A10-7850K. They probably had yield problems initially, and have largely ironed them out.

    The prices now aren't great, but at least they make sense. I could at least make an argument for the 7850K over a similiarly priced i3. At $185, that was a much more difficult side to take.

    Fantastic. Hoping this puts an end to the "Richland is better for the money" argument.

    I still feel the A10-6800k is the better option. The performance difference isn't worth the extra cost. These things are only really great for budget systems, and every dollar counts so that extra $30 still makes a good amount of difference if used towards other parts.

    The A-10 6800k for 112 dollars is a really good deal esp for those on an tight budget.
  • antemon
    can I suggest that we incorporate these APUs with the graphics hierarchy chart?
  • ForkTheSpoonWrecker
    Antemon, look at the top chart, the respective video cart that each processor "equals" to is listed. Take those and substract around 10-20% because gddr5 vs ddr3. Thats about what it equals. Ive played around a lot with apus when the 5800k came out.
