AMD unveils two new APUs for FM2+

AMD has expanded its portfolio of chips once again with the addition of two new models for the FM2+ socket. The chips are called A10-7890K and Athlon X4 880K and AMD says the former is the fastest APU to date reaching 1.0 TFLOPS of theoretical compute performance.

The A10-7890K is based on the Godavari architecture and comes with four CPU cores and 8 GPU cores for a total of 512 stream processors. The CPU cores run at 4.1 GHz, reaching 4.3 GHz in Turbo mode, while the 8 GPU cores operate at 866 MHz. The chip has an unlocked multiplier, which immensely eases overclocking and features 4 MB of L2 cache as well as a PCI-E 3.0 x16 lane. All this hardware is wrapped in a TDP envelope of 95 watts. The chip also comes with AMD’s famous Wraith cooler with a shroud and LEDs.

The Athlon X4 880K has pretty much the same specs – the chip features four CPU cores but comes with no integrated graphics. The cores run at 4.0 GHz (4.2 GHz Turbo) and the chip also packs 4 MB of L2 cache, a PCI-E 3.0 x16 lane and 95W of TDP. The processor does not get the Wraith cooler, though – instead it will be cooled by AMD’s new 125W “near-silent” thermal solution, which happens to be the Wraith cooler without the shroud.

The new AMD chips are available now – they sell for USD 164.99 (AMD A10-7890K) and USD 94.99 (Athlon X4 880K).
