AMD presents new Godavari processor

AMD has strengthened up its line of APU chips with the addition of a new Godavari-based accelerated processing unit, presented during CES 2016. The new chip is called A10-7890K and takes the title of being AMD’s fastest APU from its predecessor – the AMD A10-7870K.

The primary difference between the A10-7870K and the A10-7890K is that the latter comes with higher clock frequencies – the base clock speed is 4.1 GHz, while the Turbo clock speed is 4.3 GHz. The integrated Radeon R7 GPU packs 512 stream processors and runs at 900 MHz, which is 33 MHz more compared to the older A10-7870K. The rest of the specs are the same – the new A10-7890K uses 28 nm production process and has 4 MB of L2 cache, an unlocked multiplier, support for DDR3-2133 and TDP of 95 watts.

The new chip will cost the same as the A10-7870 – USD 140 – and will be available in Q1 2016. In addition to this the A10-7890K might become the first APU to come with AMD’s improved Wraith box cooler but this remains to be seen.
