AMD Releases Second-Generation A-Series Desktop APUs

AMD announced the second-generation A-Series desktop APU lineup, based on the "Trinity" silicon. The new A10 and A8 chips make overclocking affordable priced between $100 and $150, lower than Intel's competitive offerings.

AMD's APUs run at up to 4.2GHz, but can be overclocked to 6.5GHz with liquid nitrogen cooling, the company. The chips combine four x86-64 cores spread across two "Piledriver" micro-architecture modules, with a Radeon HD 7000 series graphics core with 384 VLIW4 stream processors, an integrated northbridge, and a dual-channel DDR3-1866 MHz integrated memory controller.

AMD's internal benchmarks revealed the new chips provide 25 percent to 37 percent overall faster system performance than the older desktop chips code-named Llano, which were released last year.

The company released the lineup with two A10-5000 series quad-core models. These are followed by two A8-5000 series models, which have four x86-64 cores, but just 256 stream processors for the GPU component. The A6-5000 series dual-core APUs feature 192 stream processors. Trailing the pack is the A4-5000 series dual-core APUs with 128 stream processors.

The unlockable chips have 4MB of cache, consume 100 watts of power and are identifiable by the K moniker. The A10-5800K has a maximum CPU clock speed of 4.2GHz and 384 graphics cores with 800MHz GPU clock speed. The A8-5600K has a maximum clock speed of 3.9GHz and 256 graphics cores with 760MHz GPU clock speed.

AMD also announced also include chips that cannot be unlocked. The quad-core A10-5700 runs at up to 4GHz and the A8-5500 runs at a clock speed of up to 3.7GHz. The chips draw 65 watts of power and have 4MB cache.

The chip will be available starting Oct. 2 through component channels worldwide.
