Two new Llanos up for preorder

Written by Fudzilla staff



A8-3870K and A6-3670K


AMD is gearing up to release two new Llano APUs, the A8-3870K and A6-3670K. There’s nothing spectacular to report, the new chips got a 100MHz speed bump compared to the 3850 and 3650, but the price is expected to stay the same.

So, we are looking at quad-core parts with 4MB of L2, clocked at 2.7GHz and 3GHz. As you’ve probably guessed by now, the “K” suffix means they have unlocked multipliers. The TDP also stayed the same, 100W. Like their predecessors, the A8-3870K and A6-3670K don’t feature Turbo, which is reserved for 65W parts.

The chips are listed at $143 and $121, so we guess AMD will cut the price of 3650 and 3850 parts once it starts shipping these babies.

K for unlocked? I hope the guy in charge of that idea was one of the 10% that got let go. If he isn't, then AMD is doomed more than we already suspected.

Why are you saying this? is there any problem with unlock multiplier?

Llano has already been shown to be a good overclocker, even with locked multiplier, so I think this was just inevitable.

That's cool, there's no doubt that Llano is a good overclocker, with K10Stat my laptops 1.6GHz A6 runs 2.3GHz on 1.1V easily, I even played around with Turbo at 3GHz, I didn't push it further, but seriously it's so extremely easy, I hope someone tries to push the Llano as high as possible, they should get quite a result.

What he is saying (though failed to state in a way others could understand) is that someone in AMD's marketing department decided to copy Intel's utterly useless naming scheme for the processors. It's a slippery slope effect that slowly erodes something good away until you have in this context utterly useless product names like Intel's. The general trend: 'k' is the starter good excuse (as it's the only useful part of any Intel product name) and if it continues then the excuses just become lamer over time (as is in different contexts).
