Earlier this week AMD launched mobile "Kaveri" products, which was widely reported on by all hardware news sites. In addition to new mobile Accelerated Processing Units, AMD also published specifications of new desktop Kaveri APUs on their website, and added some of them to the AMD product database. The line of new processors includes A6-7400K, A8-7600 and A10-7800 products for consumer PCs. What's more, AMD is going to release "PRO" versions of consumer processors, that will have similar specification and longer life support. The PRO series parts are A6 PRO-7400B, A8 PRO-7600B, A10 PRO-7800B and A10 PRO-7850B, and their specs are nearly identical to the A6-7400K, A8-7600, A10-7800 and A10-7850K APUs.
A6 series processors, the A6-7400K and A6 PRO-7400B, have 2 CPU cores with shared 1 MB of level 2 cache, and embedded Radeon R5 graphics. The CPU cores are clocked at 3.5 GHz, and up to 3.9 GHz when Turbo Core technology is activated. The GPU has 256 shaders, and is clocked at 756 MHz. Standard TDP of this part is 65 Watt, although it can be configured to run at lower 45 Watt on the A6-7400K, or at 35 Watt TDP on the A6 PRO-7400B.
The A8-7600, A8 PRO-7600B, A10-7800, A10 PRO-7800B and A10 PRO-7850B are quad-core products, featuring 4 MB of L2 cache, and R7 series graphics operating at 720 MHz. The former four APUs are energy efficient processors, rated at 65 Watt TDP. The A8-7600 and A8 PRO-7600B run at 3.1 GHz, and their maximum Turbo Core frequency is 3.8 GHz. The A10-7800 and A10 PRO-7850B have 3.5 GHz clock speeds, that can be boosted up to 3.9 GHz. Consumer 65 Watt chips have configurable TDP of 45 Watt, and business class processors have configurable TDP of 35 Watt. The only 95 Watt model in the PRO series is the A10 PRO-7850B. It operates at 3.7 GHz, and up to 4 GHz. All quad-core processors support DDR3-2133 memory:
|A6 PRO-7400B||2||3.5 / 3.9 GHz||1 MB||R5 series||256||756 MHz||DDR3-1866||65W|
|A6-7400K||2||3.5 / 3.9 GHz||1 MB||R5 series||256||756 MHz||DDR3-1866||65W|
|A8 PRO-7600B||4||3.1 / 3.8 GHz||4 MB||R7 series||384||720 MHz||DDR3-2133||65W|
|A8-7600||4||3.1 / 3.8 GHz||4 MB||R7 series||384||720 MHz||DDR3-2133||65W|
|A10-7800||4||3.5 / 3.9 GHz||4 MB||R7 series||512||720 MHz||DDR3-2133||65W|
|A10 PRO-7800B||4||3.5 / 3.9 GHz||4 MB||R7 series||512||720 MHz||DDR3-2133||65W|
|A10 PRO-7850B||4||3.7 / 4 GHz||4 MB||R7 series||512||720 MHz||DDR3-2133||95W|
The processors may start shipping in OEM desktop computers very soon.
