CES | AMD officially introduced Kaveri – APU new generation

After agonizing months of waiting, rumors, uncomfortable questions and innuendo officials, the company Advanced Micro Devices finally told the official details about hybrid CPUs (APU) of the new generation – Kaveri.

New processors combine under one cover Steamroller CPU cores and high-performance graphics core Radeon GCN. Pre-orders for the new APU open from January 14, but let’s first talk about the technical side of the issue.

Unfortunately, the new benchmarks crystals show only the general performance jump over a series of Richland and that is sad, display data only synthetic benchmarks and not games. The tests took place in the new processors bencharmarke Basemark CL.


However, the words of the company, the real gaming performance is also at a very high level. For example, the new Tomb Raider without the use of a discrete graphics system, ie by only integrated graphics processors in themselves, went very smoothly on medium settings.


From the words of the same representatives, Kaveri in total can be used up to 12 cores in combination of CPU cores and graphics cores GCN. The models presented quad-core A10-7700K and A10-7850K is used by four modules GCN Radeon, which in turn have two graphics core Radeon (a total of 8 turns), constructed based on 512 stream processors clocked at 654 MHz and 720 MHz in automatic overclocking.

Frequency of the A10-7850K in this case is 3.6 GHz. When you activate the Turbo boost crystal automatic procedure can accelerate to 4 GHz. The maximum CPU heat dissipation of 95 watts, and the overall performance – 856 gigaflops.

Processor with 4 MB cache second level (L2), has an integrated memory controller DDR3-2133 and an unlocked multiplier. Price will be crystal dollara/173 173 euros.

As for the A10-7700K, then the processor is clocked at 3.5 GHz, has 4 MB cache second level and has a total of 6 shader units (from 384 processor clocked at 720 MHz). In all other respects – the processor is identical to the older model. The price of this chip is 119 euros dollarov/119.

AMD also promised early release of the third processor Kaveri – A8-7600. He will also get four cores at a speed of 3.1 / 3.8 GHz, and the main characteristics are similar to stone A10-7700K, except there is no unlocked multiplier. The price of this processor will also be 119 dollarov/119 euros, but its heat will be lower – only 65 watts.
