AMD to launch business class "Richland" APUs

In June, AMD is going to launch the third generation of desktop APUs, featuring "Piledriver" microarchitecture and HD 8000 series graphics. Specifications of upcoming A-Series consumer desktop processors were known for a while, but it's not well known that AMD will also release several business class SKUs, based on "Richland" core. Some details of these models appeared in CPU support lists on the Biostar website:

In addition to 6 consumer models from A4-, A6-, A8 and A10- series, the list includes A4-6300B, A6-6400B and A10-6800B business class APUs. Based on the information from the list, the A10-Series 6800B comes with 4.1 GHz clock speed and 100 Watt TDP. The SKU has AD680BWOA44HL part number, where digits "44" stand for 4 CPU cores, and 2 MB L2 cache per each module, or 4 MB per package. AMD A4-6300B and A6-6400B microprocessors are rated at 65 Watt, and operate at 3.7 GHz and 3.9 GHz respectively. The APUs have AD630BOKA23HL and AD640BOKA23HL part numbers, and the "23" suffix in those corresponds to 2 CPU cores, and 1 MB L2 cache. All aforementioned specifications match A10-6800K, A4-6300 and A6-6400K specs, and we presume that remaining features are also identical. It is very likely that the "B" APUs will be shipped only in OEM desktop PCs, and won't be offered as boxed (retail) products.
