AMD's Llano A8-3850 to cost US $135

Written by Slobodan Simic

A6-3650 at US $115
We managed to get our hands on what appears to be an official price for the upcoming quad-core desktop Llano part that should hit retail/e-tail just a day before the Independance Day, or simply, Sunday 3rd of July.

The 2.9GHz A8-3850 has a US $135 price tag that is pretty much on par with what we saw in early listings. In case you missed it, the A8-3850 APU has a 100W TDP, 4MB of L2 cache and features Radeon HD 6550D graphics. The lower clocked A6-3650 quad-core APU should hit retail/e-tail on the same day with a price tag set at US $115. It has the same 100W TDP, 2.6GHz clock and features Radeon HD 6530D graphics.

The fate of the rest of the lineup is still unfortunately unknown, but for now, it looks like that we'll only see those two parts in retail/e-tail on July 3rd, while the rest is still scheduled for sometime in Q3 and even Q4 for the lone dual-core E2-3200 part.

$135.00 sounds like a very reasonable price for the A8-3850. I may just buy one to play with until Bulldozer is released.

It's a pretty good deal, from what I can see it's cheaper than Athlon II 635 + HD 5570, or matching at best, but yeah I can't wait to build one, either as an HTPC, or one for my girlfriend since she doesn't play games that much :P.

What about the 65 W quads? They are most interesting for a HTPC build.

Remember, the 100W TDP is for quad core + GPU. That compares pretty well to a 65W CPU + 43W GPU (Radeon 5570).

The cheapest low-power (45w) AMD quad core that I can find (Athlon II X4 610e) is $144 on NewEgg.

$135 thats about £84 for a 4 core apu that will clock to 4800mhz, then a MSI mATX A75MA-G55 at about £72, Thats £156 and i get a 850mhz gpu for free. bye bye Intel you cant touch that, not even in your dreams. That performance is more than good enough for 90% of us. now chuck in a £250 + gpu and i dout 97% of us would need to spend more.
fantastic performance per pound that Intel cannot touch, they need to purchases Nvidia but cant as Microsoft will block that move.

I know. But it is not the power usage than interests me, as it is the amount of heat produced. I will want to cool this passively, so it will be easier with the 65 W models.
