AMD debuts three new FM2+ processors

Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has refreshed its FM2+ platform with the addition of three new processors for this socket – the A10-7860K, the A6-7470K and the Athlon X4 845.

The new AMD A10-7860K quad-core chip is the first A10 APU representative to come with an unlocked multiplier and TDP of 65 watts. Moreover the new chip comes with the redesigned AMD Wraith box cooler, which promises better cooling performance at lower noise levels. The new A10-7860K offers about the same performance at the A10-7850K processor but emits less heat. The chip runs at 3.60 GHz base clock speed, which goes up to 4.00 GHz in Turbo Mode, which makes the new APU a bit slower than the A10-7850K processor but its integrated GPU is 37 MHz faster. The A10-7860K comes with the same Steamroller cores as the older A10-7850K chip.

The new AMD A6-7470K processor comes with two Steamroller cores that run at 3.70 GHz (4.00 GHz in Turbo mode) and offers an integrated GPU at 800 MHz and 4 MB of L2 cache. The chip comes with TDP of 65 watts but does not seem to offer the new and improved Wraith cooler. As to the Athlon X4 845 – this processor comes with four Excavator cores at 3.50 GHz (3.80 GHz Turbo), no integrated graphics, 2 MB of L2 cache, 65W TDP and a Wraith cooler.

The new chips are now available – they cost USD 118 (A10-7860K) and USD 70 (Athlon X4 845). The price of the A6-7470K is still unknown.
