AMD launches another Godavari chip

After announcing the new Godavari family a few months back, AMD launched the high-end A10-7870K processor, thus limiting Godavari to the higher end market. To remedy the situation AMD has now announced the availability of the new A8-7670K processor, which will serve the market situated below the A10-7870K.

The new AMD A8-7670K Godavari chip is built on AMD’s time-tested 28 nm process and includes two Excavator modules with four x86-64 integer execution cores, two floating point units and AMD Radeon R7 graphics with a total of 384 GCN 1.2 stream processors as well as an integrated dual-channeled DDR3 memory controller with native support for DDR3-2133 memory and a PCI-Express Gen 3.0 root complex.

The A8-7670K runs at 3.6 GHz and reaches 3.9 GHz in Turbo mode. The chip packs 4 MB of L2 cache, which is split in two 2 MB blocks between the modules and features an unlocked multiplier that eases overclocking. The integrated Radeon R7 GPU runs at 757 MHz and offers support for DirectX 12 and Dual-Graphics, which allows users to use two select discrete GPUs from AMD with this chip.

The A8-7670K is available now and sells for USD 117.99. The chip needs a FM2+ motherboard as well.
