It looks like another engineering sample of an AMD Kaveri APU has been spotted. This time it is the A10-7850K. Not only that the APU has been benchmarked in Cinebench!
The Kaveri A10-7850K is AMD’s flagship part and has a quad core design with a frequency of 3.7 GHz, and a dynamic frequency of 4GHz. The GPU on the APU has 512 GCN cores and a frequency of 720 MHz.
According to the test results below there is a 20% increase in the CPU section and 30% increase in the GPU section.
Talking about promotional tactics, what better way would there be for the marketing of the graphics processing competence of the processor than teaming it up with a powerful GPU intensive game of the year. AMD has been very clever to launch the Battlefield 4 Edition packages of the Kaveri APUs and these packages will give you the Origin keys to Battlefield 4 obviously at higher premiums than normal PIB packages. This is kind of similar to what AMD did with its Radeon R9 290 series.
These Battlefield 4 SKUs are going to come along with two APU models; namely the A10-7850K, and A10-7700K. These two together are going to meet up with the system requirements of the game which is going to work on the resolutions of up to HD+ (1600 x 900 pixels).
