AMD has just launched its latest FM2+ socket based processor based on the 28 mm Kaveri architecture, the A10-7800 Accelerated Processing Unit (APU). This APU makes use of four Steamroller cores and has a rated TDP of 65W.
Unlike the already launched A10-7700K and A10-7850K this APU will not feature unlocked cores, which means you will not be able to overclock it. The base clock speed is set at 3.5 GHz and turbo mode will bring it up to 3.9 GHz. The APU will also support DDR3 memory up to 1866 MHz. The GPU core on the APU is made up of 512 GCN cores and has a base clock of 720 MHz. It will support the Mantle API and DirectX 11.2.
The A10-7800 APU is part of a second release of AMD Kaveri APU’s, which also include the A4-7300 and A6-7400K. All of these parts are available for pre-order. The A10-7800 has a retail price of $150, which sets itself against Core i3 Haswell processor lineups.
