AMD readies two new Richland APUs

Written by Peter Scott

A10-6700T and A8-6500T

AMD launched the first desktop Richland parts a few weeks ago, but the first batch of chips came with TDPs of 65W or more. Those on the prowl for something a bit more efficient were told to wait, but now they might be about to get a couple of 45W parts.

The new A8-6500T and A10-6700T chips are not out yet, but they were found in the CPU support list of a new MSI FM2 board, reports CPU World. They are apparently quad cores with 4MB of L2 cache. The A8-6500T is clocked at 2.1GHz, while its faster sibling clocks in at 2.5GHz. However, there is still no word on Turbo Core clocks.

Both chips come with 720MHz clocked graphics. The A8-6500T features HD 8550D graphics, while the A10-6700T ends up with HD 8650D graphics. We still don’t know the price, or availability date, but they look like pretty interesting products, especially for OEMs. Let’s just hope that they don’t end up as OEM-exclusive chips.

In related news, mobile Richland ULV parts are on the way as well. AMD is expected to introduce a few new parts shortly, like the A10-5745M, a 2.1GHz quad-core part capable of hitting 2.9GHz on Turbo. It boasts HD 8610G graphics with 384 cores clocked at up to 626MHz and best of all it has a 25W TDP. A couple of slightly slower duals and quads with TDPs under 20W are on the way as well.
