AMD's unlocked APUs detailed

Written by Slobodan Simic

A8-3870K and A6-3670K coming on December 26

The guys from Donanimhaber managed to score some additional details regarding the launch date and performance of AMD's upcoming A8-3870K and A6-3670K Black Edition APUs.

As far as the specs go, the A8-3870K CPU part works at 3.0GHz and feature Radeon HD 6550D graphics ticking at 600MHz with 400 stream processors. The A6-3670K CPU part is clocked at lower 2.7GHz and features Radeon HD 6530D graphics with 320 stream processors and a working clock of 433MHz. Of course, both of the quad-core APUs feature support for dual-channel DDR3-1866 memory, have a total of 4MB of cache and the same 100W TDP.

Donanimhaber also posted a slide that puts both of these against the Intel Core i3-2120 dual-core CPU. It might be a bit strange to put dual-core against quads but bear in mind that these are similarly priced. In CPU tests the Core i3-2120 pretty much holds its ground against A6-3670K while A8-3870K is a bit faster. Unsurprisingly, in GPU tests the APUs are pretty much bashing Intel's HD Graphics in the Core i3-2120. Of course, these are AMD slides so we'll rather wait for some official benchmarks before giving out our final judgement. 

As noted, both APUs are scheduled to be launched on December 26th with a price set at US $135 for the A8-3870K and US $115 for the A6-3670K.

Oh look who stole the "K" name now from who!

*waits for the fag troll army to defend & get rated down* lol

Other news aside Microsoft has released patch in windows 7 for bulldozer CPU's to support SMT

Someone benchmark it now with that? But most probably it'll score same i.e below i3 in single thread...coz you can see a couple of Windows 8 benchmarks with shitdozzer & Win8 supports SMT by default.

Waiting for the fag troll army & their leader SuperXP aka Rory Read's PR bitch chinese boy to start rumours & mislead consumers again.

Your lies will not be tolerated & the truth will be EXPOSED thanks to Fudzilla & me & other good posters....AMD & its fag trolls BLACK SATANIC ACTIVITIES will be EXPOSED!

If there was no AMD you would be selling your mother into slavery to buy a processor for your PC, you fool. My moto is: "praise the underdog, and buy what you need or can afford." AMD processors are really affordable and they work perfectly fine for everything, as well as Intel's. If you have enough money to throw away, though, always buy Intel, or you can always burn some money if you buy a new version of iPad, or iPhone, or some other iHavenobrain thingie. ;)

There is nothing left to say I have basically DESTROYED all you AMD fag trolls in 2 weeks! bawahaha

No you don't have to rate me down you don't have to reply back to me or anything...

No You don't have to buy Intel shit or Nvidia shit...you continue to buy AMD shit so Intel & Nvidia keep their prices down.

End of the day the only guy getting his money's worth is ME!

You can continue to search for posts by [censored] up's like SuperXP & other fag trolls I don't care.

My loyalty lies only with the company giving me a good price & performance/power consumption combination. Cheers! :D

So we have jay who admits in his rant that purchasing amd "shit" keeps intels prices on their "shit" down... So instead of being mouthy he should be nice because your saving him money.. In the end he is admitting that if there was not a couple amd fan boys he wouldn't be able to afford intel nor nvidia....lolz... some people are just straight foolish on the internet... :D :-x :zzz
