We have just received news that AMD will unveil, or at least tease its upcoming next-generation desktop APU, codenamed “Kaveri” on November 11. It will take place at AMD’s APU’13 event, which will go much like their GPU’14 event that took place in Hawaii back in September.
For upcoming Kaveri APUs, the latest MSI A88X-G43 motherboard has been launched by the MSI team. Featuring all the military class IV components, the 6+2 Phase PWM also comes with OC Certified components to deliver the best in quality and performance. The FM2+ socket supports all Kaveri APUs and is fully usable with Richland/Trinity.
AMD’s 45 APU the A10-6700T has been officially released. A10-6700T is considered to be the first ever 45W variant and is also available in 65W and 100W variants as well. The APU will feature a FM2 interface, and is going to be a Quad Core with 4MB L2 Cache. The A10-6700T’s will have a base clock that will be 2.5 GHz. It also features “The Dynamic Boost” which has been revealed to at 3.5 GHz. Besides this, Radeon 8650D graphics card is also present.
AMD has confirmed that their next-generation socket FM2+ APUs codenamed “Kaveri” will begin shipping in Q4 of this year and will be available “very early” in Q1 of 2014 in the retail (desktop) channel. Mobile variants of the chip will be available a little later in the same quarter.
Last month AMD released their 100W and 65W Richland APU’s for the FM2 platform last month. They had great success as they improved on the areas where Trinity lacked enhancing clock speeds and HD Radeon performance. It looks like AMD is preparing new 45W Richland APUs which have been leaked in MSI’s CPU compatibility list.
