AMD Carrizo chip spotted online

The Internet has seen the first information on the upcoming AMD Carrizo APU generation. More specifically the specs of a chip called AMD A10-8890K have been leaked online – this processor comes with the Carrizo architecture and offers some interesting features.

The AMD A10-8890K keeps the AMD module organization and offers three modules with a total of six integer execution engines. The chip runs at the rather high clock speed of 4.4 GHz and offers 3 MB of L2 cache (1 MB per module) with no L3 cache installed. As with all other AMD APUs the AMD A10-8890K comes with an integrated GPU – Radeon R7 – with a 28 nm Oland Pro GPU with 320 stream processors and Graphics Core Next architecture. The chip has TDP of 95 watts. All modern (and not so modern) multimedia instructions are supported including AVX2.

Right now it is not clear when the AMD A10-8890K will reach the market but chances are this will happen by the end of the year. No word on pricing yet.
