AMD to release new Athlon X4 processors

AMD will have at least three major product releases this year if everything goes well at this US company – in March we are expecting the first Bristol Ridge AM4 processors with support for DDR4 memory, in summer 2016 we will get the incredibly efficient AMD Polaris GPUs and finally in winter 2016 we will also get AMD’s eagerly expected Zen processors. Until then, however, the US chip maker will have to do with older products.

To keep consumer interest and make some more money, AMD plans to release two new Athlon X4 processors for the FM2+ socket. The chips will appear any time soon and will be called Athlon X4 835 and Athlon X4 845. The chips will likely come with two x86-64 modules on the Excavator architecture with a total of four integer execution cores and will have 4 MB of L2 cache. The TDP level will stay at 65W, which is good news because this means that the new chips will not be too hot.

Unfortunately there’s no information on the clock speeds but we will know them soon since the two new AMD chips are expected any time soon. In addition motherboard makers have already started releasing BIOS updates in order to support these two chips. There’s no information on pricing as of now.
