AMD launches top-end APU

Custom PC - - COMING SOON -

AMD has added a new top-end APU to its A10-se­ries line-up, co­de­named Go­davari. The A10-7870K Black Edi­tion re­places the Kaveri-based A10-7850K as the flag­ship in AMD’s APU range, and other Go­davari parts are ex­pected to fol­low soon. Like the 7850K, the 7870K fea­tures two Steam­roller CPU mod­ules, each con­tain­ing two integer units for a to­tal of four integer units.

Although the chip still has the same un­der­ly­ing ar­chi­tec­ture as its Kaveri broth­ers, it fea­tures a few tweaks in or­der to im­prove per­for­mance. The7870K’s stock clock speed has been raised to 3.9GHz (4.1GHz boost) from the 7850K’s 3.7GHz (4GHz boost), and the Radeon R7 GPU clock speed has also in­creased from 720MHz to 866MHz. The A10-7870K is avail­able from www.scan.co.uk for £108 inc VAT now, and we hope to have a re­view soon.
