Budget socket FM1 APU

According to a post over at, AMD is preparing to add another APU to its FM1 socket lineup, the A4-3420.

The same A4-3420 APU has been around for a while, as an OEM part, but now it appears that this dual-core APU will now also hit retail. As noted, the A4-3420 is a dual-core APU clocked at 2.8GHz with a total of 1MB of L2 cache. It features Radeon HD 6410D graphics clocked at 600MHz and packed with 160 stream processors. It also comes with support for DDR3-1600MHz memory thanks to its dual-channel memory controller.

The A4-3420 is pretty much an update to the A4-3400 with a slightly 100MHz higher core clock and higher GPU clock. The TDP is still 65W.

The new A4-3420 APU should hit retail/e-tail with a US $65 price tag. You can check out the original post here
