AMD's Upcoming Richland APUs Spotted, Photographed

Three of AMD's upcoming Richland desktop APUs have been pictured, among which are the A10-6800K, A10-6700, and A4-4400. Because they are the first to be photographed, it is likely that these three will be the first to hit the shelves.

The A10-6800K is a quad-core, Piledriver-based APU with a core clock speed of 4.1 GHz and a Turbo core speed of 4.4 GHz. The on-die Radeon HD8670D handles graphics with a clock speed of 844 MHz. The CPU cores feature an unlocked base clock multiplier.

The next chip, the A10-6700, is mostly identical to the A10-6800K, except that it features a core clock speed of 3.7 GHz, a Turbo core speed of 4.3 GHz, and an upwards locked multiplier to prevent overclocking, but not downclocking. It features the same graphics part as the A10-6800K.

The last chip that was pictured is the A4-4400. This chip is an entry level dual-core part with a core clock frequency of 3.7 GHz and a Turbo core speed of 3.9 GHz. The graphics on-die are taken care of by a Radeon HD 8370D part.

Lastly, it also appears that the APUs will be launched in June, although it is unknown when in June they will arrive.

    This is about as exciting as watching a race between two snails when the finish line is a mile away.

    ...unless you're building a cheap gaming/HTPC system to make your TV rock, in which case it's very good news. Mine rocks so far, and cost well under $400. Good luck pulling that off with an alternative setup.

    This will hit the market with a quiet flop. This is the same APU that was released before with increased cpu and video clocks. The end. I will wait for the release of the GCN apu's in Q3/4.

    It has been months since the news of the Richland release in June (there are even benchmarks available). This article provides nothing new other than pictures of 3 of the chips. I am anticipating the release of these APUs as well but I am unsure how the release of a few pictures of these chips would be exciting news.

    I do care for news about upcoming processsors, but a picture of a chip is hardly news.
    By the look of those CPUs we can tell they... well, they will still be square in format... uh... they will have a metal enclosure... and... uh, forget it. Oh, they'll be made in China (big surprise here).

    I like the fact that intels 3ghz cpu's are as fast as AMD's 4.1ghz cpu. Reminds me of the P4 vs Athlon XP days, but in reverse. Not good for AMD, hopefully they can pull back from this sh!tty inefficient cpu design.
