According to Fudzilla, the high-end Richland APU will be called A10 6800K and replace the current 5800K.
The 3.8 GHz/4.2 GHz, quad-core 5800K sits on the top of AMD's APU series with four CPU cores, 384 Radeon (HD 7660D) cores, and a TDP of 100 watts. AMD will be able to squeeze more power efficiency out of the 28 nm Richland chips. On the high-end, it is unlikely that the company will be changing the power envelope, but rather increase the off-the-shelf clock speed, which should easily be touching 4 GHz/ 4.4 GHz. Richland will also include AMD's new HD 8000 Radeon graphics core.
The A10 6800K as well as other Richland APUs are expected to be announced in June of this year.

Graphic-Units become more and more potential. - Hopefully, the cpu will also become better.
Indeed, if they could bring such power there would be no second thought to buy it or no. with APU's AMD could actually have a chance to expand in casual market. You could get great GPU power with decent CPU power for reasonable price ( cheaper then competitor) and that would be big yes for many I think.
But I will still cheer for AMD when they kick Intel's ass in any direction they can. May, when time comes, the x86 monopolist be buried along with their tightly held IP.
from my own experience budget gamers don't care if that is intel or AMD or something else, they just care is money, as it has to be cheap with good performance.
They can't seriously not have thought of that themselves. Why limit their own products?
